Hi Leo,

I set things up with the Nexdome and using Voyager Robo Sync. Everything works perfectly!

The only little things I notice (no change from before using ver 2.2.3) is that in the “Operations” widget the Dome has a RED square? I wasn’t running a sequence at the time - just slewing the scope around to see how well the dome would follow. Would this RED square turn to GREEN when running a sequence or does it also need the Shutter connected to the Dome as well IOT get it GREEN?

Also, in the “Data Acquisition” widget there is no info for the Dome?

Thanks for test it … really appreciated.

Red square related to Dome in Operations box mean the external driver report Error status, usually is when driver doesn’t know the status of the shutter. Here the list of color and meaning:

For command and status window some help here:

https://voyager.tourstar.net/index.php?title=Command_Window#Observatory

About Dome info :

  • in the status windows you have the dome azimuth, the dome status of motors and shutter.
  • in the commands windows you have all the commands about dome and again all the status related

All the best
