Capabilities Question / microstepping control
« on: January 26, 2016, 21:36:44 »
Hi Tom,

On the Arduino shield schematic, MS1..3 are separate for RA and DEC motor drivers.

When I modified my EQ6, I placed microstep drivers inside the mount, and those control lines are internal and shared.
Do they really need to be separate, is there ever a situation where microstepping is different for RA and DEC (provided motors and drivers are identcal, of course)?

I can separate them.. and bring them out on DB15 connector (there are just enough pins for that!), but I would rather not if I don't have to.

Thanks in advance!

General Discussion / problem with driver
« on: January 24, 2016, 04:12:23 »
Hi guys,
I have a problem with ASCOM driver, I can't install it.
However the whole thing still works, if I choose EQMOD ASCOM HEQ5/6...
What could be the problem here?
Thanks i advance!

Capabilities Question / Sync
« on: January 23, 2016, 23:23:15 »
Hi Tom,
When connected with CdC (v2.76.. as EQMOD HEQ5/6.. I hope this is right configuration), I tried to sync on arbitrary object on the other side of the sky.. but it didn't work.. not always. GoTo worked OK.
Is there any limitations, like with StepON (which I was also evaluating for my home built mount).

I was hopring to be able to just power up scope, manually point it to an object on the side of the sky where observation/imaging was planned and GoTo from there on the target, to save setup time.

Thanks in advance!

DIY AstroEQ / RAMPS 1.4 ?
« on: May 12, 2015, 22:33:42 »
Hi Tom,
I am considering AstroEQ for my LDX75 (I purchased it with simple controller) mount because I have a spare Arduino Mega board.
While the PCB manufacturing is not a problem for me (only a slight hassle..), I am still wandering if there is a (easy) way to remap the IO pins to suit RAMPS 1.4 shield, which is widely used for 3D printers?

Also, does AstroEQ support simple LX200 protocol to directly connect to CdC? 
Thanks in advance !
