Celestron 5SE

Post by chris packman » Wed Sep 25, 2019 9:48 pm

Since the last App store update I have been unable to get a reliable connection to my Celestron 5SE. It worked fine prior to the update ?
AsiAir connects then refuses to display any of the Telescope menus..... Sometimes after a random period of time it all starts working...

Thanks

Chris

Hi Chris

How did you connect your mount to your Asiair

and your settings on your Asiair

The mount is connected to the AsiAir with a USB cable plugged into the bottom of the handset.

The AsiAir is set to Celestron SE, Serial-USB and 9600 Baud.

When you enable control the USB-Serial icon turns grey but no menus appear lower down the screen.

Sometimes after it's been in use for a random period of time the menus appear and it all leaps into life....

Worked fine before the last App store and firmware update...

Thanks

Chris

Hi,

Tried using Celestron CPWI software and it works a treat.

Tried using APT 3.70 and again it works well...

Though I think these both use the Ascom drivers...
