I have purchased a Titan mount with Gemini 1 primarily to image. Unfortunately since buying the mount I have been unable to use it to image as I cannot calibrate the mount in Maxim dl or any other software. Instead of getting the L shape calibration I get something akin to a W.
I have sent the mount to Ovison for a full service and when I got the mount back I still add exactly the same problem. Ovision have used the mount with a 12” Celestron and the mount performed perfectly for them. The computer links to the mounts as I can move it using Maxim or Starry Night.
I have changed all the cables even the computer but the error remains. The error is always exactly the same even when I point the telescope in different parts of the sky. I also used a different camera. I use an ST4 cable to see if that would make a difference but I still get exactly the same pattern.
I have attached an image of the error and I hope that someone will recognise the problem. I honestly don’t know what to do anymore and I can’t even sell the mount as there is this problem.
The image was taken with a QHY6 mono and the mount was moved 15 seconds of arc during a 7 seconds exposure for all 4 frames.
Please help as I am really depress wit this. I bought this mount for my retirement and so far I am utterly frustrated with it.
Thank you for your help.
