I did my maiden flight with SGP last night and ran into a bit of trouble. My dome control is handled by the Lesvedome software, and it communicates with my 12" Classic Meade through COM port 5, with a Keystone Serial to USB adapter.
I made a point to not communicate with the scope through SGP, since there was no need and I wanted to keep things simple.
However, within minutes of starting the sequence, my dome control became sluggish and quick working. I forced the software off and when I tried to reconnect, it said that COM5 was not available.
I saw this occur twice and can’t say the dome worked at all through the one hour session.
Any ideas on why SGP would take over the com port to the scope, and how I might correct it?
