Dec motor runaway - TITAN 50 Mount
Posted 10 February 2010 - 02:56 AM
I have my scope C14 aligned so many times and still check it everytime.
Images taken like 60s. show the beginning of star trailing.
Now I run ECU 5.0 and can watch the coordinates where the scope is pointing at.
I was pointing at comet 29P and noticed that the DEC coordinates (last digit) starts to count up very slowly, then I checked the coordinates of the Gemini handcontroller and indeed the same thing was happening there. Is something going wrong here. Can I 'freeze' the coordinates and let the scope track the coordinates that I input in the PC ?
Just want to know what's going on.

There is a Yahoo! Titan group where you can pursue these issues a bit further.

It only happens by manually inputting the coodinates and press RA+ (enter) to confirm.
I will visit the yahoo group, thanks for the link.
