Trouble shooting

No guide star

  • Check guide probe limits
    The telescope CCD-probe might be vignetting the guide star, if the guide probe has X > 100000 and Y < 50000.
    If you can't see the guide star check the guide-probe X & Y and choose a new guide star from here
  • Check that the TV-focus is close to 430
  • Check the TV-filter.
  • Perhaps there are clouds?
  • Is the mirror cover open?
  • Is the upper hatch open?
  • Maybe the lower hatch is vignetting?

No signal on the CCD

  • Check the pickup mirror position, the status should be "CCD"
  • Check the TCS focus, it should close to 23040
  • Perhaps there are clouds?
  • Check the CCD-filter position
  • Is the mirror cover open?
  • Is the upper hatch open?
  • Maybe the lower hatch is vignetting?
  • Maybe the shutter controller has no power?
