Re: EAF - Backlash?

Remove the two bolts to the far end of the bottom plate of the focuser and attach the Takahashi mounting plate with two long Alan bolts. I can take some pics of my setup later today if you want.

New product announcements

Dear ZWO, This forum contains a New Products section which doesn't seem to be used very much anymore. The latest announcement was made there in October 2017 and several new products have been released by ZWO since. I know that you announce new products on your FB page but I don't use FB so often.

Re: EAF - Backlash?

I use an EAF on a SkyWatcher Esprit 80ED and virtually encounter no backlash at all. Did you use the Takahashi Scope bracket or the original one? I use the Takahashi bracket and the EAF is attached rock solid.

Re: Why am I getting this grid pattern

Can you post an example image, preferably one before stacking, that shows the pattern?

Re: ZWO ASI 120mm exposure failure on ubuntu 19.10 RPI4

I don't own an ASI-mini but people on the indilib forum report that it works. Perhaps someone from ZWO can confirm this?

Re: ZWO ASI 120mm exposure failure on ubuntu 19.10 RPI4

The newer Linux kernels in Ubuntu 18.04 and up enforce a tighter use of the USB2 standard, which the ASI120MM (and MC) break. There is a lot of info about what's exactly wrong with the way this camera implements this standard only partially. It is actually a good thing that the kernel enforces this ...

Re: ZWO ASI 120mm exposure failure on ubuntu 19.10 RPI4

Hi Stephen, Do you have an ASI120MM (USB 2) or ASI120MM-S (USB 3)? The first one is not compatible with Linux (and MacOS and Windows 10) because it doesn’t implement the USB2 standard correctly. There is a “compatibility” firmware for that camera but it never worked for me. If you have an ASI120MM-S...

Re: 1st Image ASI294MC Pro Cooled

In general this needs to be done before stacking. I am afraid that PS may not be the best tool for this. Perhaps you can give DeepSkystacker a try and see if that works for you.

Re: EAF advanced unable to manually focus with hand controller

This happened to me as well until I realised that the cable connecting the hand controller to the EAF wasn't plugged in all the way. Please give that a try.
