Paramount Successful Start Up Audible Feedback

Click on the embedded audio player above, or click the Download link at the right to listen to a recording of the typical sounds emitted by the control system shortly after the Paramount ((ME II, MYT, MX, MX+, or any mount using the MKS 5000 control system) is turned on.

For this audio clip, the sounds occur at the following times:

  • At 2.25 seconds: The power switch is turned on.
  • At 3.18 seconds: There is a "whistle" indicating successful control system initialization (the orange TCS LED will illuminate on the Electronics Box).
  • At 3.77 seconds: ding indicating successful right ascension axis initialization (the blue RA LED will illuminate on the Electronics Box).
  • At 6.26 seconds: second, higher pitch ding indicating successful declination axis initialization (the blue Dec LED will illuminate on the Electronics Box).

Important Note:

Exactly when the two beeps occur will be different for each mount and will vary depending on the mount's current mechanical orientation.  The beeps may even occur simultaneously so that only a single beep is audible. 

If the LEDs on the Electronics Box are illuminated, and the mount homes, the control system is functioning normally.
