Hi everyone,
I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with this, I also posted this under the SatTracker group for help. I have a lot of stuff going on with my setup and I'm actually quite surprised I made it this far =), so bear with me. I'll try to keep the problem short and sweet.

I'm having tracking issues with my motorized CG4 mount. I'm using Satellite Tracker with EQMOD, EQMODLX and AstroEQ as the motor driver.

The problem I'm having is that after intercepting, which seems to work fine (CDC and SatTrack agree on the location). Once it gets into continuous tracking mode things start to get a little wierd. My mount just starts hovering over the intercept point, it never actually follows the satellite across the sky.

I have the latest version of all software packages, and I know that eqmod and astroeq are working well with eachother as I have no problem chasing after normal sky objects. My mount should also be fast enough as I designed the setup using rather large stepper motors and am capable of using eqmod with the max sidereal rate.

Any ideas on what's going on or how I can troubleshoot it from here.
Thanks!
Eric
