1. "General Announcements" is read only, hence, no replies are allowed.
2. I have run version 2.6.1 and CPU utilization is normal just like version 2.5.1. I will wait for your report with the separate directory.
3. ASCOM compatibility - Currently ASCOM implementation is being added for Losmandy mounts via the Ethernet interface at 100 MBS in order to attain smooth tracking. Message rate is extremely fast and, yes, a current GOTO must complete before a new GOTO is issued via ASCOM based on what I have found. I will update this statement if I find otherwise during my testing.
Note: Please put possible version 2.6.1 bug reports in the Satellite Tracker » Software Bug Reports - You must be registered to Post! » Satellite Tracker Bug Reports » Satellite Tracker Version 2.6.1 (Beta) section. I tried to move this and was unable to do so. Best thing to do is report in that section and delete this post. ASCOM information goes into the section: Satellite Tracker » Software Bug Reports - You must be registered to Post! » Satellite Tracker Bug Reports » ASCOM Related Issues
