Hello to everybody,

 

Someone have had this kind of message? " Wrong Encoder Position Error"

 

When I want to do a Autopoint with 84 stars in some positions the mount lose the Encoder position and once I want to do a Park home, the mount it goes  where it want.

 

I will appreciate your comments about this Issue.

Good evening Romero,

I see you have problem after making a scoring model more than 80 stars, it happened to me, it may be that you have not checked on each star error there was, once the 100 number was exceeded, the calculation is wrong. redo a pointing mode fewer stars and checks each time the value does not exceed 100 and De Ar, and see that want to go

Sincerely Denis Vienat

Hello Denis,

 

Thanks a lot for your help. I read yesterday night your message and I restart the Autopoint with 23 Stars, the results has been quite  good!!

I introduced 40º Horizont and 60º in Altitude to make the model in sequence.

 

But still in some point appears the message, anyway I will try to reduce the values o get better results.

 

I will let you know it the final result.

Have you done a 'find home position' routine when you switch on the mount?
I don't think the problem has anything to do with the number of stars in the pointing model.
The ini file should have the correct values for your encoders - it is worth checking this with ASA?
Contact Support and send them the ini file.

Hi George,

Yes I have done each time I switch on the mount.

 

Today I have made a pointing model with 22 stars (45 Horizon and 60º Dec) In one of the position has appeared the same message and the mount lost the position.

 

I will do it, thank you for your recommendation.
