Timeout reading position data #39653
Hi,

I'm trying to control my mount (iOptron CEM60EC) using the ioptronV3 driver.
Connect succeeds, it gets location info and some other stuff, but the RA/DEC position fields stay zero, and in the log field I get continuous messages
2019-05-29T17:23:19: [ERROR] Read Command Error: Timeout error

I first thought this is related to pointing not being initialized. So I switched on the mount in zero position, went for '1 Star alignment' (this is at daytime. It slewed to Sirius, and I just accepted the position). But still, when trying to connect it does not get the position info :(
The ieq driver does get the proper position immediately.

Attached a log of my tries.

Timeout reading position data #40620
I have meanwhile updated to the very latest version of the firmware, all boards are now at 20190424, so definitely fulfill the criteria mentioned in the docs.

Still the error is the same, I get a timeout when trying to read the position data.

Is ANYONE using this driver successfully with a CEM60?
