Hi Charles,

there ist a Open source Project calling
Indigo Sky with a Raspi Image. I think it looks
like the Asiair solution. I test ist since one week and it works stable with my Equipment.
I test with a Raspi B+ . The Project have a lot of drivers included and works fine with ASI cameras onstep controller and Focusers

Bonjour à tous
Est il possible de mettre à disposition le fichier 3D pour réaliser une impression 3D de la raquette de commande

J ai vu cela sur Webastro

Merci beaucoup

Quelques nouvelles: j'ai trouvé une des sources de mes pb: soudure défectueuse sur D+ derrière le Teensy.
Je l'ai refaite.
Du coup maintenant TeenAstro communique avec Carte du Ciel par ASCOM. Ca marche en port parallèle et en wifi.
Par contre je n'arrive pas à faire fonctionner TeenAstro avec Guidemaster ...?
Guidemaster semble connecté à ASCOM mais les commandes moteurs de Guidemaster ne semblent pas fonctionner ...

Bonjour;
Suite à un changement de PC portable, j'essaye de réinstaller TeenAstro.
J'ai un problème avec la connexion ASCOM:
J'ai une "erreur CommandString GVP has failed", que cela signifie-t-il ?
Nota: j'ai réinstallé les dernières versions de driver ASCOM et uploadé la main unit et la raquette aussi avec les dernières versions.

Hi Raymond,
 
Thanks for the feedback.
I am currently working on that feature:
- Add star names, IC/NGC objects in SHC if data memory capacity is allowed

Dear Charles,

Yes, i have already built many controller versions, from AstroEQ, Onstep to TeenAstro. 

Unfortunately  there is no star night at my site after the build versions on TeenAstro controller. No real tracking and goto performance result for my mount.

Here is some good features which can only find in TeenAstro controllers (original and mini):

- Good hardware design and simple flashing procedure.
- Very good software structures in SHC. Almost all functon and parameters can be setup in the SHC without the need for touching the PC.
- Standlone ST4 for guiding.
- Software controlled stepper driving current.
- Motor Accerating control.
- Wifi in SHC so the controller pcb can be installed inside the mount and no need for external antenna.
- GPS support.
- Teensy 3.2 RTC enabled with battery backup.
- Very good support from Charles and members in the group.
- And many others......

Wishing features:
- To revise pcb structure for SHC push buttons, better with full 3D print enclosure.
- Add individul microstep settings for tracking and goto.
- Allow user to tune off the limits for mount tuning.
- Add star names, IC/NGC objects in SHC if data memory capacity is allowed.
- Change SHC connector to RJ11 6P or 4P.
- Add support for hardware homing sensors.

Best Regards,
Raymond

Hi Raymond,

It looks like you have already tested many Telescope controller, could you give us your impressions about the different system you have tested?

Avoid this one, it's not work properly. The motion isn't regular. I finally bought the Farnell ones, works great.

Hi Charles,

Thanks for reply.
Yes, i don’t care the inverse of direction. As you mentioned it is quite easy to setup with your Smart Hand Controller.

Major issue is the phase on motor coil will be reversed and cause issue during operation. My setup can run in high speed slewing after driver change from TMC2130 to TMC5160 BOB but can’t normally run in tracking mode until i swapped the two pins. Yes, this is just a minor issue. Just want to report to you for confirmation only. Thank you.

Hi Apo,
 
when you change from the TMC2130 to the TMC 5160 bob the rotation direction is opposite. You just have to go to the mount parameter in the webserver or in the SHC and change the direction. you can also use this tool https://groups.io/g/TeenAstro/wiki/TeenAstroConfig
It is very convenient as you can add comment and save it on your PC.
 
In the next PCB version, I will fix this minor issuein the next version, and I will also add some jumpers...
at the momen at I have 15 PCB left, so I will change that only when I have distributed all my PCBs.
I want to avoid Cherry Picking(in german Rosinenpicken).
 
Thank you Raymond for your contriution!

Hi Charles,

I found the PCB layout (Main and Mini) are best matching for the TMC2130. The coil connection pins to DB9 sockets are B2 B1 A1 A2. However, when work with TMC5160 BOB the connection pins to DB9 will be B2 B1 A2 A1. It can’t use same motor connection cable for normal tracking without the pins swapping on DB9 pin# 4 and 5. Or i need to cut and swap all related trace on PCB. Any other advise to me? Thank you.
