I’ve just got back to work today to find a newly repaired DDM60 (I had an issue with the bearings which ASA have fixed- I hope). This afternoon I had a quick check of how things were looking, but unfortunately I’ve hit an immediate issue- when I run homefind as soon as it finds the location on the RA axis the mount rapidly slews round a huge amount (about 90 degrees) and the RA axis becomes unusable until I fully restart AutoSlew. The log displays an RA/AZ configuration error.
If I don’t run a homefind then things seem to be working fairly well once the mount is tuned and balanced, but no matter what I do I seem to be getting this error with the homefind. I’ve even done a factory reset and removed all files related to Autoslew in the ProgramData folder, but this didn’t help either. I’m assuming this is some sort of software issue to do with the old configuration settings and the repaired mount clashing, since sidereal tracking and normal slewing are generally working okay. Are there other hidden files that I need to find and delete?
Could anybody please give me some advice on what to try? Have you encountered a similar problem? I've also contacted ASA, but thought the forum might have some experience of this specific problem.
