Multiple Rotators

Post by RegP87 »

How would one go about connecting 2 rotators to the same PC? I dual image and with other Pegasus products I have you can specify which COM port each unit is on. With the rotator I am not seeing any way in the software or ASCOM driver to distinguish between rotators.

Each rotator has a unique id and spawn a different com port. Although, it requires some development work in standalone application to let you select each rotator

Might this be in the roadmap for future updates? As it stands it's impossible for me to use both rotators at the same time :(.

Thank you, I was surprised to not see it since all the other Pegasus equipment I have has it.

I also have 2 rotators for a dual rig and would like to know if there is any update on the release of new drivers for this product

We are going to support multiple units in the new software and ASCOM release (Mid Nov21)
