Automapper error message
- Hi All,
It has been a while since I used Automapper. The computer in the
observatory had to be replaced and after installing The Sky6,
CCDSoft, TPoint all with the latest updates I am getting an error
message using Automapper. I believe that it was #429 regarding
AcitveX and could not create the object. There was also "slew
failure" listed. I would have written down the exact words, but it
went blue screen before I could get the paper and pencil out. I
also had other problems using The Sky with the ME--the message "not
homed" would come up. Upon some reflection I thought that this
might be due to the McAfee security program, specifically the
firewall component. It turns on with bootup and I have to turn it
off manually to use remote desktop with the house computer. I am
sure that I have all of the settings correct in Automapper including
the north angle and the defaults set correctly for CCDSoft and The
Sky6. I am able to image link easily manually using a 20 second
shot through the ST8XE with CCDSoft. Automapper slews the scope to
each point on the list, pauses so that I can adjust the dome and
prompts me to take the exposure, I click yes, then I see the message
and it slews to the next position. No exposures are taken and of
course no image link follows. Does anyone have an idea of where I
have gone off track? Any help would be most appreciated.
- Thanks for your reply Ron. I will recheck everything. I have the
latest versions of all programs. I am fairly certain that the server
settings are correct. But I do not recall setting Automapper to
interact with The Sky6. I do recall having CCDSoft set to interact
with Sky6. As the work day takes its toll on my night time
consciousness, it will probably be Thursday before I can check things
again and try a mapping run.
What is Slewing error 21013 in Automapper II? I am running a new
TPoint model on my Paramount after some hardware changes and I keep
seeing this in the left pane of Automapper. I get a good model, but
this error keeps coming up and it just moves on to the next point.
- Haven't seen that one before. The first thing to always check is that
you are using latest version of all programs, just in case.
It might help to see the logs. The default folder location is at:
C:\Documents and Settings\ronw\Application Data\Automapper
This may vary if you installed Windows on other than the C: drive.
