The development version:

..........

Which Bluetooth-TTL adapter are you using on your Merlin mount?

Are you using built-in Bluetooth on your Mac or a USB Bluetooth device?

Hello Andy,

Whitch BT module do you use for your connection :
Side Merlin ?
Side MAC ?

Do-you use a direct Bluetooth connexion or a "Virtual serial connexion" ?

At the beginning do-you establish the connextion (led will pass from "blincking" to "solid" and stay "solid" !)
Is the BT connection broken after a few seconds / minutes ... ?

Could-you send us a copy of the Log file of Papywizard just after "connection" ?

Sorry but we need all those info's to be able to help you ...

I bought the Merlin from someone in one of the forums here, but there were no instructions. The blue tooth domngle came with it, a small blue box with a light cable and phone plug. It blinks then goes solid when I manage to connect with my mac, briefly. Using the inbuilt blue tooth on my mac.
I have had a couple of connections where I've been able to move the head from the computer, but only briefly. I cannot figure out the controls? I want to set a start and finish and a time value to go from one to the other and take timelapse along the way. Is this possible?
I will work out how to create a copy of the log file and then I'll send it to you.
Thanks again
Andy

Yes, but I can't find a mention of timelapse? Is it just a mosaic with one row and a big overlap?
Thanks
Andy

How do I attach a copy of the log?

Hello Andy,

Lets take systematically !!!

0. BEFORE ALL !!!! Please install the next version of Papywizard on your MAC:

http://www.papywizard.org/static/download/macos/Papywizard_2011-02-01.dmg

1. the log file that you have send doesn't contain the "startup" sequence and this is the one we need !

So when you have finished to install Papywizard ....
Please enable the BT connection trough Papywizard and then connect the BT module trough Papywizard ...
When OK, disconnect from the BT, clean the LOG file and close Papywizard !
Then start Papywizard again and enable the Bluetooth connection.
When done and "BEFORE ANY OTHER OPERATION" open the Log file, copy the whole content of the log and send it to us here in the forum.

On basis of this content, we can help you further ....

Waiting for this copy now ...

There is a problem with the bluetooth communication. What bluetooth master are you using, on your Mac side? You may have to try an external one...

Andy,

You may find the section about using Papywizard and Bluetooth adapter with the Mac in this Panogear manual helpful:
