AM5 Parking was created by Bill

A request about the AM5 Parking function.
I have noticed that if you park the AM5 via the mount control, you cannot unpark it. However, if you go into the indi tab you can select Home, which will unpark the mount. Could this be incorporated for the AM5 mount to just unpark it? Otherwise, I have been using the hand controller to move the mount out of the park posiition.

Just a thought, thanks

hey friends,

any update on this? What is really kind of bad is that in case of an error/alignment failure (due to balcony obstruction e.g.), EKOS tells the mount to park (which is great) but then the rest of your scheduled night will just fail because the AM5 will not move out of the parking position. Only way to get it running again is to disconnect all and reconnect.

As the AM5 is becoming a very popular mount these days, it is probably worth if someone could take a shot at this issue.

Thanks a million!!!

Hi Stefan,
which settings are you using for "Aborted Job Management"? Depending on what exactly happens from your balcony obstruction, there should be a way to restart the job automatically.
