SC doesn't work with Gemini Telescope.NET ASCOM driver

Post by calan » Fri May 26, 2017 4:06 am

Using the Gemini II on a Losmandy G11, and SharpCap doesn't want to play with the Gemini.NET ASCOM driver. It will connect to the scope, but speeds are not shown in the drop-down, and trying to send a move command results in a MoveAxis error.

All other software I've tried works with the Gemini.NET driver as expected. (Gemini control panel, Gemini web interface, PHD2, Astroplanner, and Stellarium).

Hi,

Please could you run the ASCOM diagnostics on the mount driver and post the results here - in the same way that has been done in this thread : viewtopic.php?f=5&t=161. The diagnostics usefully include the list of axis rates the mount claims to support which will help me work out why this is failing.

cheers,

Robin

Here are the SC and ASCOM logs. Will post conformance test results shortly.

Ah, sorry, wrong logs - the one I was thinking of is the result of running the ASCOM driver conformance check, which can be downloaded from

http://ascom-standards.org/Downloads/DevTools.htm

What you do is download and install the conformance checker, run it, then...

*** WARNING - running this will slew your mount - don't run it unless it's safe for your mount to move in all directions ***

* Options menu, choose 'Check Telescope'
* Options menu, select driver and pick your driver
* File menu, check conformance and let it run through the tests

The key information I'm looking for is the results of the tests for MoveAxis and AxisRate - this is what they look like for an EQASCOM mount

Robin, here is the conformance log. I'm not sure what the slewing errors during the test are, but I'm guessing it has something to do with the set safety limits.

Re: SC doesn't work with Gemini Telescope.NET ASCOM driver

Post by admin » Sun May 28, 2017 8:43 pm

Looks like the mount is very precise about what rates it is prepared to accept and SharpCap is not set up to track the rates to that precision. I will see what I can do for the next version, but it might end up taking a couple of turns around with extra logging to get this properly sorted.

cheers,

Robin

Please give the new release a try and see if it helps.

Will do.

I'll also test the ZWO disconnect issue, that your release notes mentioned being fixed. I noticed in the last release that SC would still hard crash and need to be restarted if the camera was inadvertently disconnected.

Thanks as always Robin.

The ZWO issue was the case of disconnecting the camera between it being detected and added to the menu and selecting it - that one was fairly easy as the ZWO SDK then says 'what camera?' when you ask to connect to it.

Unfortunately if you already have the camera running there is no good way to detect disconnection except that it stops responding to requests, so it's unlikely to fix that one.

cheers,

Robin

Robin,

With build 3971, I can now move the scope in Dec, but RA still throws the same error.
