I upgraded from The SKy 6 Pro to ThSkyX Pro. I use ochestrate to send a telescope park command to the Sky, which then parks my LX200 ACF at the end of my observing period. I can get ochestrate to move my LX200 to an object throught the SkyX, but I get an error on the park command.  I import the following:

WaitUntil  , 01/21/2012 16h16m00s ,                             
AppShutDown , TheSky 6,  park tele  

TheSky 6: should park the telescope and disconnet, but using the mask 6.

Since the SkyX has a special Meade tab for telescope control, maybe I need to send a differnet command.

I have doing this successfully with the Sky6 for years.

Also, the SkyX "autostar handbox" does not work. I never get any status in the status area.

but I get an error on the park command. 

  1. What is the exact error code number and wording of the error message?
  2. What is the exact version of TheSkyX Pro?
  3. What is the exact version of Orchestrate?

Others report the same behavior.  Not all Meade mounts support this command.  If nothing appears in the Status text box, turn the option off.

realVNC - control is for a remote observatory

*Only DDW, ASCOM and RealVNC is running with the SKY X when I get the error.

 

I get no error for the Meade control box display text line in the Sky X . It does not work and when I selt it to be operational it slows the SKY X to much to use with realVNC

For troubleshooting, using only the "local computer" connected directly to the mount, close all applications except for TheSkyX and Orchestrate.  (Remove third-party remote control software from the equation.)

The please turn off the Use Handbox checkbox.
