Lx200gps ra pec updating
A further issue was noted with the Scope Monitoring not able to log scope position when The Sky is performing an image link.
TPoint Mapping was conducted by using automated routine , but with progress monitoring by indoors computer.
Determined that I already had Star Patch 1.6 on my laptop.
I was unable to find any information about whether current settings on Autostar II (eg alignment, PEC, park position etc) are retained through the upgrade process.
I proceeded with a second update attempt, but this time stuck around to observe the upload.
After completing the upload, Star Patch sent a message to the Auto Star/LX200 to reset.
A "try, catch end try" coding was added and the program continued.
Underlying error related to the monitoring of Temp and Star Elongation.
Checking the handset indicated that it has moved to 4.2G (from 4.2g) but none of the old settings were there.
Mapping was curtailed when cloud began to develop and there was insufficient stars to link/map in the last 16 attempted frames and a remaining 12 points were cancelled 0.85 arc min RMS with ?
best TPoint Model Polar Misalignment Azimuth (MA -74, sigma 11).
Following upgrade for Autostar II to 4.2G v19, reinstallation of drivers for Prolific Serial-USB adapter, and a number of enhancements and changes to my Observatory Software (including a new Observatory Tool Bar and access to Aurora Cloud Sensor data), a full systems test was carried out.
This was to check this everything was working together ok and that software was generally robust.
Determined that the recommended method based on information in forums such as LX200GPS Yahoo Group is still to use Star Patch.
