Re: RA axis not returning home position (frst tests)

Nino Garcia

Something is definitely not right with the RA axis, although it is moving in the right direction it is not pointing right and is not coming home.

Test 1
from the home position align the star to 1 star "Capella".
coordinates from OnStep Android application
Coords: Apparent/(J2000.0)
RA = 05h18.3m (05h 16.69m)
Dec = +46º01' (+45º59.883')
The axis of Dec goes there
RA points to 1h30m (instead 05h18.3m)
