Re: Getting Sitech to work with ASCOM

Did you select “SiTech DII Telescope (ASCOM)” as the Mount choice in the Connect Equipment Panel? If it’s not there then SiTech is not properly installed.

Check that on the Scope Encoders tab of SiTechConfig, you're NOT in the "drag" mode.

Check that you're not in the "Track Only Sidereal (No PXP)" is NOT checked.

Is the scope initialized?  In the textbox below the two tracking and stop buttons, it should say "tracking", nothing else.

 

Let us know what you find.

I have also verified that the commands are coming through in ascomcalls.txt..

 

However there is no movement that I can generate using ASCOM commands.
