Group Description

When applying to join this group please provide a comment that mentions your scope and mount

Currently only Skywatcher/Orion/Avalon mounts with synscan motor controllers are supported. Other mount types may be supported either by mounting a synscan upgrade kit or by building your own mount controller (AstroEQ).

The EQMOD Project is a community dedicated to the development of a free, open source, PC based ASCOM driver that provides a rich set of mount control functions. Communications to the mount are via RS232 and requires either a RS232-TTL converter or connection to a V3.21 (or later) Synscan hand controller operating in 'PC Remote' mode.

The key features/benefits are:

* Direct Control by any ASCOM compliant planetarium or client

* Northern/Southern Hemisphere support

* Gotos/Slew at 0.144 resolution (dependent on Mount type)

* N-Star Alignment model

* Gamepad telescope control.

* GPS Support

* Variable Speed Periodic Error Correction (VS-PEC)

* Spiral Search

* Definable Park/unpark positions

* Sidereal, Lunar, Solar & Custom (DEC and RA) tracking rates.

* Pulseguiding

* Independent RA and DEC Autoguider speeds

* Slew Speed from x0.1 to x800 sidereal rate

* English, French, Spanish, Italian, Romanian & Dutch language support

Other EQMOD Project developments include:

* EQMosaic An ASCOM application for the managment of mosaics.

* EQTour An ASCOM application forĀ  Sky Tour planning / navigation.

* EQMODLX LX200 to ASCOM, useful for satellite tracking.

* PERECORDER Automated Periodic Error recording program using webcams

* PECPrep Periodic Error Analysis program.
