My HEQ5 mount regularly disconnects from SGPro. This happens all of the time, the frequency changes, but certainly a few times during a typical astrophotography session. The mount is still tracking, and if I reconnect, then immediately hit the sidereal button, I can carry on.
I can’t, however rely on the link meaning that I can’t rely on SGPro to change targets, so I can’t set up to image all night, or to do a mosaic.
I have just completed an extentsive week of testing with APT (Astro Photography Tool), and during that week of 12-14 hour sessions, APT did not drop out once.
This implies to me that it’s maybe to do with protocols used, or perhaps timeouts and retries of the process…obviously the ascom and EQMOD settings should be the same for both.
I need to use SGPro, APT doesn’t have the facilities I need !!! HELP !!!
