I could use some help in setting up PHd2 to run on my setup.
Calibration and guiding failed last night.
First equipment setup:
The SkyX camera addon
The SkyX mount
The skyx Planitarium
The skyx imagelink for plate and blind solve
Ascom focuser sesto senso
Everything connects fine. When I run a sequence with calibration and guiding checked, at the part of the sequence when it is to do the calibration it throws an error and after a couple of tries end the session.
Here is what is happening, when it attempts to run the calibration a small window on the desktop appears and says do you want to run another copy of the SkyX, I click no, but the window keeps reappearing. It also completely locks up Phd2.
My analysis. With Voyager not running I launched PhD2, connected both the guide camera and mount. When I did this it opened Skyx on the desktop, which is normal.
Now with a completely clean slate, I ran Voyager and connected all . It opened Skyx and Phd2 both guide camera and mount where connected, again which is normal.
I am wondering if when Voyager starts to calibrate for some reason it tries the launch another copy of Skyx which is why I get the message window do I want to run another copy of Skyx. This maybe causing PHd2 to lock up and calibration to fail.
Would it better just to use SkyX autoguiding? I appreciate any help.
