I am considering moving from CCD Autopilot to Voyager and currently working through the initial phase of the Voyager learning curve.
According to the user manual, as of v2.0.14e, it is possible to configure a sequence without connecting to your equipment as long as a profile has been defined and is active. I am using Voyager v2.2.4 with TheSkyX (latest daily build) and a Paramount MX+. All of my equipment is controlled by TSX (camera, filter wheel, guider, plate solve, focuser, flip-flat & dome) and TSX is the planetarium. Frankly, the tight integration of TSX with Voyager is what interested me in this software in the first place.
Unfortunately, even though I have defined a profile and it is active (listed in the “Profile” box and visible at top-right of main window), when trying to do a “fast find” without connecting to my equipment I receive a “Planetarium is not configured in Voyager Control!” error. Of course “fast find” works just fine when all of my equipment is “connected;” however, for a variety of reasons I would like to build my sequences without connecting to my equipment.
All of that said, is it really possible to configure a sequence without “connecting” to the profile equipment? If not, is there some workaround for TSX?
Any help would be appreciated!
