Point Not Converging Errors

Problem(s) Encountered:

Had issues with pointing. Encountered repeated  point not converging  errors.  It seemed to point to the requested coordinates in RA but not in DEC. Reset telescope then closed and reinitialized TCS GUI. Neither had any effect. The 2.4 meter observers reset the dec motor controller and the pointing still did not respond.

Finally, Eric stopped and restarted all programs and manually

zero''ed the telescope after which pointing was restored.


Stopped and restarted all programs and manually zero’ed the telescope pointing at zenith.
