Hi Andrew, all,
Well, I don't know what to think about my Autostar problem ...
First the LXD75 mount turns on Ok and if the paddle works then moves in RA and DEC are Ok at different speeds.
Power supply ? I tried many (2x 12V batteries and also 220-12V converter) ... no change in behaviour
Autostar cable ? Looks Ok, I checked it with multimeter wire by wire, press with a flat small screwdriver on the pins
RS232 control ? I tried, it may be Ok for some moves then will become unresponsive and hanging SharpCap software
I saw :
- Autostar paddle don't turn on everytime and sometimes don't for many On-Off on the main board
- when it turns on and beeps
sometimes it stops working there (no panel, no moves possible)
sometimes it is fine (until 'Object') for a few moments often until I change speed one or more times
sometimes it is working fine then turns off later
I have open the paddle but there is not much to check inside !
Thanks for any ideas / help !
