              Addressed an issue regarding Presets with "<" in name cannot be loaded in Web UI.
              E.g. the presets made via OLED Menu, with automatic sense to left.

                C2E_12262 is published

                Addressed an issue regarding [o] button not triggering the camera when MECHA is in pause.
                Added option at OLED [C 74,75] Menu and /config for Zenith and Nadir positions, default 90 and -90.
                For backlash purposes, or to have particular overlap, you can change the values accordingly.
                MECHA will use those values in scripts instead, where Z and N occurs.

                When MECHA is moving, some advanced settings in Row/Ring pages will automatically hide to allow quick access to [STOP] and [CANCEL], those setting will re-appear after the moves are ended, if doesn't, please press [Power] or [STOP]

                Added at [C 17] + ASSISTANT at ip 192.168.8.XXX or OFF
                this is the address of a second MECHA, like a C1 mounted on hot-shoe, which can be used for triggering purposes, with no cables between the moving parts of the gear.
                For now this is only for triggering, FSC (Fast Shutter Conf.) will be added later.
                that particular + ASSISTANT MECHA (+) can be either C1 or C2 as long as is in STA mode and connected to main C2 unit's AP
                You can set a fixed ip address for (+) in its config, like IP:192.168.8.110 SN:255.255.255.0 GW&DNS:192.168.8.1
                This is only for advanced users, please ask on support or forum, if in doubt.
                A C2 using a + ASSISTANT will be refereed as C2+ in supporting materials.
                C2+ will trigger in the same time C2 and the (+) unit.
                1. Mecha it possible.
                2. Mecha it easy.
                3. Mecha team up.

                  C2E_12263 is published.

                  Added REAL MOVE ON, default DEGREES MOVE ON (as before) OLED [C 18]
                  This is beta, allows the use of MECHA C2 to control real world devices, like linear rails, including macro, focus so on.., but also rotational devices, say a MECHA P1 rotator is driving a large turntable using a gear box, with ratio unknown or using belt.
                  To use it:
                  1) mark a reference on REAL device driven by Rotator 1, say, a rail.
                  2) switch to DEGREES MOVE ON [C 18] if is not.
                  3) Set INTERVAL 3 [C 37] at 1.0 TUR (1 turn or 360°)
                  you can use other values if 1 TUR. is not appropriate for the device, i.e. too small or too large.
                  4) press > or < then [=] to execute 1 turn of MECHA rotation
                  5) press [power] then navigate to i3 REAL MOVE 1 [C 74] and adjust the value of movement you saw was executed on REAL device, say 100.0, for 100.0 mm
                  6) switch to REAL MOVE ON [C 18]
                  Now MECHA will interpret all the numeric values as real values, say, 100.0 will be 100 mm on REAL device,
                  wherever those numeric values are, in button intervals or in presets or scripts.
                  To go back to values to be interpreted as degrees, switch back to DEGREES MOVE ON [C 18].
                  Proceed the same for Rotator 2, if needed, with i3 REAL MOVE 2 [C 75] as final adjustment.
                  Some video tutorial will follow, showing how get out most from this feature.
                  Is not need to repeat this process unless you've changed the INTERVAL 3 [C 37], or you've changed the REAL device type.
                  1. Mecha it possible.
                  2. Mecha it easy.
                  3. Mecha team up.

                    C2E_12264 is published.

                    Improved REAL MOVE ON, to allow different REAL devices on rotators, set with different Interval 3.
                    Now the Button Interval 3 matters only when adjusting either i3 REAL MOVE 1 or 2
                    and it can be changed afterwards and use as regular moving interval without affecting the REAL conversions.
                    1. Mecha it possible.
                    2. Mecha it easy.
                    3. Mecha team up.

                      C2E_12265 is published.

                      Added in /config
                      [x] Allow DEGREES - REAL MOVE Switching
                      This is default OFF, in order to prevent wrong use of the REAL MOVE
                      1. Mecha it possible.
                      2. Mecha it easy.
                      3. Mecha team up.
