SkyPortal and SkySafari are the same software, just with different price tags and different features enabled/disabled by the maker.
CPWI is a completely different software from different people. So the two do things slightly differently from one another. No surprise.
Another such difference, is that when doing a StarSense AutoAlign, CPWI on my mount goes counterclockwise (N,W,S,E) whereas the other two go clockwise (N,E,S,W).
I'll reboot into my temporary MS-Win environment and see what CPWI does here -- whether or not it issues that same command against the Evolution mount, and if so then what the mount responds with.
OK, thanks! I'm going to try to do some imaging tonight. The GPS mount is such a better mount than the SE, except for the inability to use newer accessories like the StarSense. I'd still take it everyday and twice on Sunday over the SE or many of the other Goto mounts. The motors, gears, slewing and lack of backlash are so much better. Of course, it weighs a ton but I'm lucky to still be healthy enough to heft it up onto a wedge. The SE mount just seems like a toy after using the GPS mount.
