something was caching badly on the pc(not sure ) ,directly copied eqmod.cpp from git to local and compiled it . Local testing works fine with goto's in the area (not even 1 star sync) Ill try it out in the field today or tomorrow. Thanks a lot again
There is no way for a driver to know if it is using an AltAz mount as AltAz or on an equatorial wedge. I think it might be necessary to introduce a switch to switch AltAz or EQ modes, at least to set the home position.
Yes, home position is north when the mount is powered up, but the scope may be pointing elwehere as the motor encoders are relative.
With the synscan app, I always enable the internal encoders after poweron, and tell the scope to goto (-90,90). Then the scope is aligned with the home position, and the internal decoders can be switched off. Some claim that there is less precision with the internal decoders - I don't know.
Using EQ wedge.
I use a twin scope bracket, so I need the black dowetail screw on the mount to point towards polaris - that's why I goto (-90,90)
