Skysafari connection delay

Post by astrosatch » Sun Sep 29, 2019 2:06 pm

I installed latest beta 1.3 and while everything works well the connection with skysafari takes 1 minute to connect to mount. Swiping and maneuvering on screen is lagged to. However when goto command is executed, mount slews immediately.
I set different settings from usb-serial to ethernet option and is the same.

Is there any way to speed this up?

I tested on Skywatcher AZ-GTI (choose eqmod with SkySafari in Asiair telescope settings)with SkySafari 5 pro

there is no connection delay

I also experience a delay connection to my mount using eQMOD cable and Skysafari. I am using a Skywatcher AZ EQ6 GT and the 'Eqmod with Skysafari' setting in ASIAir
