celestron_nexstar driver #985
Hello,

I'm using the Celestron Nexstar driver (indi_celestron_gps 2.0) with my celestron CG5 mount. My question is about the motion control of the mount.
When I click the north button, the right ascension declination value decrease.... :blink:
The declinaison button seems to be fine :
East button -> RA increase
West button -> RA decrease



Any idea ?

Sébastien.

You perhaps means if you click the north button, the declination values decreases? Do you have N/S swapped in your hand set (if that's supported?) ?

My mistake. You're right. The topic is about the declination. I fix it in my previous topic.
I made some test today in my office with the autoguider and this is weird because now, the declination works perfectly with the button of the mount driver but not with the ST4 autoguider of my QHY5.

I try the qgvideo program with an XP virtual machine. Declination and RA are inverted but with this program you can invert the function with a checkbox.

Can we imagine the same feature in ekos ?

Because this night is the night in France, I just modify the code in the file qhygeneric.h to fix my problem with the autoguide mode of my QHY5. It works in my office. I will make some real test this night with the guide mode of Ekos.
/*Invert North and South */
#define GUIDE_EAST             0x00010010     /* RA+ */
//#define GUIDE_NORTH            0x00020020     /* DEC+ */
//#define GUIDE_SOUTH            0x00020040     /* DEC- */
#define GUIDE_NORTH            0x00020040     /* DEC+ */
#define GUIDE_SOUTH            0x00020020     /* DEC- */
#define GUIDE_WEST             0x00010080     /* RA- */

FYI, the actual direction of the guide isn't critical since the Ekos guiding module takes care of orientation during the calibration phase.
