Sequence stuck and dashboard question

Hello everyone, first of all, so excited and happy I discovered Voyager, never looking back again! :slight_smile:

I had a successful full night run two days ago, but last night something weird happened. I’ll paste below log from last exposure up to when there was the problem. My understanding is that it lost the guide (patchy clouds) just before meridian flip (I found it in that position), and somehow stopped like that?

So this morning as it printed that last error message the whole night, I went to commands to simply park, but again something weird happened:

It remained in the pre-flip position. So eventually I did the Park from within TSX and it worked. I have all connected via TSX (mount, camera, guider).

Anyone knows what happened and how can I make a sequence to handle what happened correctly so that it keeps trying/going?

Second question I have is about Web Dashboard: I connect successfully, but once I load my profile with my Canon 6D, the virtual FOV says to change profile as it’s missing camera information in Voyager. But in Voyager the camera info is all filled in (focal length, chip size, scale). Is there somewhere where I can/must input the pixel resolution? I can’t find it :slight_smile:

Thanks again!! :slight_smile:

Your mount stop tracking … probably limit.
Allow mount to cross meridian an continue tracking for at least the 10 minutes in setting more the longest sub you will do with your setup.

Pixel resolution is automatic, you must connect at least one time the setup in Voyager to get info in dashboard.

Please request support with normal channel if you want more info, we do not offer support trough the forum.

All the best

Ciao Leonardo, thanks for the quick reply!

Sorry I did not know about forum rule of no support, will do via official support channels :slight_smile:
