Hi, I have a few dramas that i am hoping a few might be able to help me out with.
So I have Stallerium and EQMOD
I am also in the Southern hemisphere and in Australia
Mount is a Skywatcher EZ-EQ6, the newer one with the USB B port on the mount.
The first issue is do do with Stallerium.
When i go to connect telescope, i get the connected, so all good there,
Close off the window and try to find where my mount is pointing.
50% of the time the mount icon is pointing in the grass roughly SE, the other 50% of the time it appears to be pointing at the SCP
So not sure what is going on there.
I have set my location as spot on manually as i can, ( am i best just to select a town from the drop down list instead ?)
I changed the time to UTC +10:00 as this is what i believe is the correct time zone for Australia
Dose any of this sound incorrect or explain why the telescope is showing pointing into the grass at roughly SE once connected?
I have the telescope set up so that home position is pointing at the SCP
Now in EQMOD tool box,
I have the Baurd set at 115200
I have entered the location as it is on Stallerium so that both are the same
For polar star i selected Sigma O ( i think this is correct ?)
Now this is the interesting part i guess.
I took note of the RA, DEC, AZ, ALT numbers on both Stallerium and EQMOD and noticed that they were all different.
I am fairly sure this could be part of my drama.
Also noted on EQMOD that the LST ( i am not sure what this is, maybe local standard time ?) This didn't match the time in Stallerium or the laptop
This is what i had from EQMOD and Satllerium
LST 18:09 16:51 ( on Laptop )
RA 3.47:19 3h 47 14.89s
DEC -74:04:50 -74 10' 32.8"
AZ 169:30 :30 169 32' 20
ALT 27:51 :50 27 57:00
Note: this is not the home position numbers, i selected a star slightly away from the SCP to see if i could get some better numbers to try and make it easier to understand what is going on.
( telescope slewed to this star )
Also when i click on LST in EQMOD, it changes to AM 1.568
Sorry for the long post, but any advice or information on what might be going on would be appreciated.
I do have APT but don't want to confuse the question with tis as APT settings did match EQMOD .
All advice and information is appreciated.
