Thanks Leo
didn’t know that Voyager all started for the SX AO.

If you don’t mind me asking a question here about my SXAO, I get this in the logs:

AO Mirror Homing not Executable : Voyager can’t manage Mirror homing system of this AO

I guess I need to turn off AO centering?

cheers

Select sx so type in voyager setup like AO type

Hi Leo

I already had the SX type selected as the AO type, that’s why I’m confused about this warning message

cheers

Nick

I use maxim I need to check if phd2 have now API for homing … when I wrote the client not have … this is the reason of warning message
