There are encoders built into the system, but these encoders are located on the worms so they only measure driven mount movements. The EM draws up to 2. The polar alignment of EM was realized by the drift method , since Polaris was obstructed from view. My imaging configuration consists of: Moreover, integration of the electronic parts inside keeps safely all the fragile elements. This 21st century innovation employs a newly designed triplet using special elements to produce the highest order of color correction, hence the name Ortho-Apochromat and is packaged in a short 32″ tube with the lens shade retracted.

The reliance of the Temma PC system on these two programs was it’s single largest shortcoming. Many laptops no longer include RSC serial ports. This is free and fully recommended. I measured goto accuracy using my EM with a just good polar scope alignment no drift alignment and a Vixen GA4 illuminated guiding reticle.

Perhaps you are not unparking the mount within SGP… I downloaded the driver here so I can at least give a screenshot or two.
It is ideal for the itinerant observers wishing to take advantage of their optical tubes under the best night skies, like for instance TOA refractor or Mewlon reflector.
There is a small fee after a free trial period. The latest TheSky build is available here. The tube has a retractable dewshield. Goto was always within 5 arc-min and typically within 2 arc-min. Details on the revised Software Bisque Temma driver can be found here. This equipment is a fixed installation on the terrace roof of my home. The polar alignment of EM was realized by the drift methodsince Polaris was obstructed from view. This resulted in lost imaging time, due to many subs with less than perfect stars.
You will need to provide more information from your side…tell us exactly what steps you take. Many astronomy programs now support an independent system of interoperable telescope drivers called ASCOM. Since its introduction, the STLM, 35mm format, has been used in the hands of some of the best astrophotographers in the world to produce some of the most stunning astrophotos ever produced by amateur astronomers.
Instead they provide USB ports. Perhaps you are not unparking the mount within SGP…. When you connect in SGP do you have the Scope selected as here… When you click on the spanner Icon, you should get the following screen: But this is not useful for long exposure imaging.
As for value, that’s harder to deterimine. In a couple nights I managed an excellent polar alignment.
If you have not selected to unpark the mount when you connect – then you must unpark it manually. Great news – glad to be of help.
It comes equipped with an internal filter wheel. There are encoders built into the system, but these encoders are located on the worms so they only measure driven mount movements. With this system it is not necessary to use farandz focal length of the main telescope for guiding. After many years of dedication to Film astrophotography, I decided to “leap” to digital imaging, in part by the discontinued films, which I traditionally used, such as Kodak Technical Pan and also the higher resolution and performance offered by the current CCD’s.
But 24V farandq required for their “high speed” slewing support. It’s a simple program capable of controlling the mount. For details see Takahashi Japan’s Temma 2 technical report.

All covered with concrete, insulation and paving stone. But its database is quite limited and it is missing many features that anyone used to TheSky will sorely miss.
Moreover, integration of the electronic parts inside keeps safely all the fragile elements.
