Hello,

I've recently tested voyager automation software and face some error with the Ascom StarGO which does not seems to cooperate.
The function that reporting error are Home and Park. I've discussed with Leonardo from Voyager and it's seems that the ascom driver of the mount does not comply with some ascom standard ?

The homing command result is correct and the telescope move to the home position and put the mount in a terrestrial tracking mode (Stopped)
But it's seems the driver StarGo is not cooperating with voyager. The command immediately report an Error before the mount have completed the slew to the home position.

The mount park correctly but there is no tracking status after park. (In reality the mount is stopped and parked).
the function doest seems implemented or is this a misconfiguration my StarGo ?

Why would the mount report traking ON if the mount is correctly parked ?

For short it seems that with this mount the ASCOM driver for command Park and Home work but report a false positive error to Voyager ?
