EQ-6 and PEC #45290
Hello,

I've done some research about EQMOD PEC and Indi, but can't find anything about using PEC and EQ-6 in Ekos.
Actually you can use PPEC with Indi with mounts like AZEQ6 or EQ8.
But with EQ-6 it isn't PPEC but SPEC. And it seems that Indi donc support it, am I right ?
But what I would like to do is making a PEC file for my mount with PEMPro on Windows and then use this PEC file with Indi, is this possible ?

Thanks you in advance for your answers !

I’ve got an EQ6R and haven’t setup PPEC yet either. Can we do this in EKOS natively or do this with the hand controller and then enable it in EKOS.

Interesting question to start the thread, thank you. With these mounts being pretty popular I’d have someone on the forum might have done this already.

I'm new to this and studying it... thinking that these mounts should be smarter than they are (not that they aren't, it's just they do seem to mess-up).

I found this in a Cloudy Nights post:
... Note that PEC is not active if you're guiding—the point of PEC is to improve open loop (unguided) tracking.

Since I always guide, this might be be important to me. Except when I do the planets and Moon.
