Slew Not Converging “Error”

Thursday, November 15, 2018 10:47 AM

Problem(s) Encountered:

When I was going to close at the end and issued the point command, the move halted partway through with a slew not converging error (tracking had been turned off so that wasn''t the problem).   I didn''t check the position of

the telescope by hand, but position readout indicated HA=0 and a dec of about 45.  Repeating the command put the telescope in the zenith.

The command I was using was

point ha=0 dec=31:57:12 nodome

as usual.


These “converging errors” appear to happen from time to time.  I believe something is timing out, but what I do not know.  So far, resending the command seems to always resolve the issue.
