Hello,

 

does someone use a ScopeDome Dome and uses automated dome tracking so the dome follows automatically the scope on a bent pier?

I'm having some poiting issues that the dome is not checking on which side the telescope is facing the sky.

 

Any ideas to solve this?

 

Best regards,

Michael

Hi Michael,

 

I used once a ScopeDome dome (now I just use the ScopeDome card with my roll-off roof), I'd suggest to contact Jacek Pala who is the programmer of the driver - he is very helpful and I guess he will quickly be able to help you out :)

Hi Luke,

 

we still trying to solve the problem with Jacek, but sometimes people who are own the dome are fast or have better solutions for problems :)

Well... I sold mine as I had too many problems of mechanical nature (which, by the way, have been fixed in the newer version of the domes), so cannot really help there. I had the pleasure of testing the beta versions of the driver and am impressed about all the surplus features they integrated...
