Hoping for some pointers. I’m using SGP, PHD2, and APCC w/ AP1100 mount. PHD uses a QHY5L-II guide cam.
At several points throughout the night, I get alerted via GNS that there’s a problem. When I log in, the mount is parked, PHD isn’t guiding (naturally) but I do seem frames still being taken. What I can’t seem to piece together is the core of the problem. I suspect either PHD encountered some kind of problem, or, APCC did a safety park for some reason.
In looking at the log(s), these two times stand out:
[8/2/2015 12:50:57 AM] - frame 7 starts
[8/2/2015 12:55:29 AM] [DEBUG] [PHD2 Listener Thread] Failed to establish client connection to PHD2 using port 4400: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it 127.0.0.1:4400
What I can’t figure out is: did PHD error, or did APCC error and safety park, causing PHD to error? The APCC log isn’t human readable so it’s hard to tell what APCC thought was going on. I’m not sure why the mount parked.
This occurred a few more times later in the night. PHD/SGP logs here.
Any tips greatly appreciated. I’m going to fwd the APCC log to AP to see if they can decipher anything. Thanks!
