Is it possible to define point/degree of reverse rotation?

Post by AstroHD »

Hello,
I have installed the Falcon Rotator in my image train. When operating the rotator I can see in my setup that it turns counter-clockwise until 220° when trying to move from there to e.g. 225° the rotator reverses direction to prevent cable problems and turns clockwise to the desired degrees. So far so good.

Question: Is it somehow possible to define at what point (or at what degrees) the rotator should reverse direction?

I'd like to set it to reverse direction at 190° instead of 220° for cable management reasons (the pack of cables would otherwise block the fan outlets of my cooled camera).

Thank you for any suggestion.

Hi Herwig,
Unfortunately no, with the current firmware
The 220 deg is the hard limit.
However, we'll check how we can support that in a future firmware release.
