I am trying to help my friend start using Kstars/Ekos.
We were having some issues though with the mount. The mount was plugged in through the hand controller and we selected the "NexStar" driver. This did connect to the mount, but it seems that the mount would NOT receive any commands. We could not slew, guide or anything at all.
How are we supposed to connect? Is the hand controller okay, or should we get a RJ45 to USB connector instead? Does the port need to be set by us? Is there a setting on the control that needs to be chosen?
Any help is appreciated, thanks.
