AVX not Tracking

Post by JRG_484 » Thu Jan 24, 2019 7:22 pm

Just got ASIAIR to use with ASI 174mm mini, SkySafari Pro 6 on iPad, Celestron AVX and Stellarvue SV70ED. Sky Safari connects to mount via AiAiR and does Goto's but will not track. I turned Tracking to ON in ASIAIR but still AVX is not tracking. Images even at .5 sec show streak stars as result. Need help to solve this. Thank You, John G.

Problem solved. The issue was a setting in SkySafari, turned off Time and Location in SkySafari and now tracking works fine as well as plate solving and sync mount. Now I can focus on using and enjoying ASIAIR!

I have the same problem with a Celestron CGX mount.
I could turn off the time in SkySafari, but I can not find how to turn off the location.
Could you tell me how it is done?

Sorry for such a late reply, I have not been on this forum for quite awhile due to excess number of spam postings. . In SkySafari 6 Pro go to Settings, then under TELESCOPE select Setup, these are the critical settings:

ScopeType: Celestron AVX/CGE/CGEM/CGX
Mount Type: Equatorial Goto
Auto-Detect SkyFi: OFF
IP Address 10.0.0.1
Port Number: 4030
SET Time & Location; OFF

Hope this helps!
John G.
