Using skysafari pro v 184.108.40.206
Equipment Celestron CGX mount, Skyportal 3rd generation WiFi module,
With or without Starsense
Ipad Pro 11”, IOS v 13.3.1
Problem or Feature ?:
Dec Axis slew remains active when finger removed from screen.
I guess this could be a feature, but it is a little unnerving .
When I select a Slew in the DEC axis in Skysafari pro , I can get the direction arrow to remain active when finger is removed.
It will continue to slew in the direction selected until I touch and release a DEC direction arrow .
It seems to be caused if you have the IOS feature “ALLOW MULTIPLE APPS” enabled
This feature lets you access another app with the “Slide-Over-sidebar”. That is, if you touch and swipe from the right to left.
If you accidentally do a slight swipe right to left, as you touch the DEC slew arrows in the Skysafari app, it locks the slew arrow ON.
To Prevent this You either :
Touch the DEC slew button carefully
OR turn off the feature ALLOW MULTIPLE APPS, in the settings, under HOME SCREEN & DOCK.
Let me know if you have any questions on this.
