Hi all, starting out with Voyager and I’m getting some questions about the detail…
e.g Sharing of ASCOM devices - several drivers expect access to common underlying components like the mount.
In my case, PHD2 is expecting access to the mount for making guide corrections
Voyager is expecting access to the mount, Maxim is expecting access to the mount ( to record fits fields if nothing else) and my dome which is synced through POTH is expecting access to the mount too. What is the recommended process - use the ASCOM Hub driver ( POTH replacement) as a single central hub ? In spite of how EQMOD works, the general model is one driver per client app…
This question is driven by the observation that when voyager tries to open the mount and the mount is already open in other apps, it starts another one that cannot open the comm port and fails badly - that ínstance cant be closed. It seems to be orphaned. Using disconnect in voyager doesn’'t help.
I am having a problem with PhD2 not connecting. I have increased the timeouts and still have no change. However CdC on the same pC connects instantanteously.
When Voyage disconnects, shouldn’t the child applications also be stopped unless selected otherwise ? For example CdC stays open and running.
I have started Voyager as admin to try to :
make the UAC message go away if its a one-time elevated write. It doesn;t
See if the PhD2 issue goes away due to mis-match in security levels - it doesn’t.
Anyone got suggestions ?
My kit is EQMOD ( SW EQ8), CdC, MaximDL - like to replace, home brew dome, soon to have a homebrew focuser, and i’d also like to move a lot of this to ALPACA.
