Can I please pick your brains? so as you are aware I have been having issues with my Mesu Mark 2 mount drifting every second in RA making it unusable or guidable at times. After in contact with Lucas
Mesu and problem solving I changed to a new computer, rebalance and cable management, it's early days to say 'WHOOP WHOOP problem solved' but yesterday it went fine for the hour and half i had ( only tested in the WEST )
I use Voyager software that controls everything and all the drivers are up to date
I start voyager, mount is pointing WEST
Sitech showed the mount as tracking.... 'I completed a Plate Solve Actual Coord' and the Sitech box appeared and press INIT to confirm ( making sure the bottom bit showing WEST) and then press SYNC in voyager and the
RA and DEC readings are the same...
Voyagers allows you to search for target and uses ALADIN to show what image looks like in your pre-defined FOV setup, You can also free search around sky screen and do a precise Goto which will plate solve the target.
Last night I choose target NGC457 and it slewed in bang onto to my FOV I then began PHD2 guiding and was at around TOT 0.50.
After consistent frames perfectly centred I pressed the 'Get telescope position' It showed that the scope had moved considerably away from the target, however each frame it was still bang in the middle of the FOV and
guiding graph good.
see images below ( first image shows R.A 01:18:11:8 and DEC 58:23:41 in SITECH ) and the in Voyager RA 01:18:12 DEC 58:23:41)
