I’ve just finished a DragScript to control all night shooting at my observatory. It’s based in the official example provided by Leonardo but I don’t have a control card so I removed all that instructions and rearranged some logic.
Maybe, this could be useful to those who have a Pegasus Astro PowerBox (the link points to the PDF “PocketPowerbox Serial Command Language”). The serial port command turns out very handy.
I am really very happy that DragScript can be so useful, flexible and decisive. This was the very spirit with which it was born. Congratulations on the great insight and for sharing, I believe many will find your DragScript useful.
Thanks to you
PS please spread words about Voyager , this is really important for us !
Hi, I don’t know for sure. Actually, in this case, the PPB is not connected to voyager. It’s an independent piece of hardware that I connect and control through this command (Serial Port Transmit). I think this is the reason that the command is inside the Operating system group of the DragScript editor.
I am trying this for the first time tonight but I got an error message “Error Serial TX => Access to the port ‘COM7’ is denied”. My script and PPB connections are as below. Is there anything else I need to do to make it work?
