Re: Stepper Motor doesn't do anything...

Burton,

You asked for a command reference for OnStep.

The command reference for OnStep is here:
https://onstep.groups.io/g/main/wiki/23755

But these should help you in determining if your issue is with your board, or the software driving the board.

:GVP#

(Should return On-Step# )
(You may have to send this twice, the first time around.)

:R4#
(Set current slew rate to 4), which should be 4x sidereal  Valid values are 1-9.
Try slower values 1-4 at first while figuring things out...  Slew rate 1 may move so slowly that the stepper motor barely moves, so it is hard to see motion...

:Me#
(slew scope East at current slew rate)

:Q#
(stop scope (all axes))

:Mw#
(slew scope West at current slew rate)

:Q#
(Stop scope (all axes))

:Ms#
(slew scope South at current slew rate)

:Q#
(Stop scope (all axes))


:Mn#
(slew scope North at current slew rate)

:Q#
(Stop scope (all axes))

Hope this helps,

Arlen

There's that. All the MaxESP3 board seems to do is start beeping and flashing when I tell it to track from the OnStep app
