I too have experienced issues with Moonlite focus stepper and UPBv2. I spoke with Pegasus Astro about this and was told that the Moonlite stepper is what they used for testing. I have found that reducing the speed to 50% in the indi control panel has helped yet I'm still not convinced it's working as well as the Moonlite controller.

I did manage to borrow a windows computer (I do not own one) and test the Pegasus Astro control software with the moonlite focuser and the stepper appeared to operate normally.

Waiting to receive the unit back for further testing.

I have shipped the unit back due to the variable output not working and I'm waiting to get it back to actually use the device for imaging.

I am using ZWO ASi 1600mm-pro and ASI 120mm-s cameras and I've also experienced connectivity issues using the built-in USB hub. Is anyone else experiencing these issues?

Hello lead_weight,

You'll set it up as an aux device. Please let us know if you're seeing the same issues as above. Please upload the logs as well.

The UPBv2 has an adjustable DC output. It's right next to the USB ports. I cannot get any voltage out of that port. I have emailed Pegasus Astro regarding this and the focuser issues. I have not heard back from them. It's been almost a week....

I also had to reverse the A/-A B/-B on my Pegasus rj45 to db9. My Moonlite focuser runs the proper direction but will only do so at 50% or less. Anything higher and the stepper motor starts to click and buzz.

Hello,

Try setting the speed to 50%. Also, how do your rj45 to db9 wired?
And, here is a link regarding log submission.

Thank you Jasem,

Yes, most of the issues are resolved.

"Power" Tab
1. Adjustable output isn't working. No voltage out from the adjustable output.

*I have also reached out to Pegasus Astro regarding this issue.

"Focuser" Tab

1. Temperature not working. Reading "0". (Same temp sensor as displayed on "Environment".
2. I can not increase the focuser speed greater than 50% without the stepper motor making a "clicking" sound. A focuser speed greater than ~60% causes the "clicking" sound with no movement.
3. When I choose to the move the focuser 5000 steps in the outward direction using the "Absolute Position", the focuser moves properly. When I attempt to return the focuser to absolute position zero by 5000 steps, the focuser stops a few millimeters short of zero and no error is reported.

*Will this issue affect the temperature dependent focus changes?

"Dew" Tab

1. Auto Dew - untested at this time.

One more quick question. Why do code and formatting tags break when I edit a post?
