I am trying to use SkySafari 5 and SkyFi to control my new Skywatcher EQ8. I have no issue connecting using scope type "Skywatcher Synscan". However, following connection, the declination motor on the EQ8 is engaged at a very slow speed and continues to run while the SkyFi unit is connected. Physically disconecting the SkyFi results in the motor stopping. Whilst the drift in DEC is fairly slow ( ~0.1" every 3 to 5 seconds ) I of course am unable to take images.
Are you aware of this issue? Do you have a fix?
