I'm a digital bot, I don't need any sleep ;) But seriously, You got me in the middle of imaging session and while it runs I often do some reading.

Everything's OK. You need to remove libs directory from your build directory before every consecutive cmake run. The driver is using submodules and there's no easy way to do this. So you need to rm -rf /home/rob/astroberry-amh/build/libs everytime you recompile the driver.
Also make sure that you run sudo make install instead ust make install. Everything should work just fine when you follow these. If not, just let me know.

You can drive the focuser without the box. See this post and later take a look at this driver.

It's there ;-) - take a look at the first column from left.

You can create this file with Write File button on INDI Align tab. Try this:
1) As soon as you start your system (you can use simulation option for EQMod) go to INDI Align tab
2) Click Clear List
3) Click Write File

This way you create empty list in AlignData.xml
If you don't clear the list before writing the file (and you have align points on the list, which are added each time you do plate solving and syncing) you can maintain persistent list of align points between sessions. I wouldn't go for it though if your mount is reset each time before session.

It was definitely fixed with the imaging session. However, I have just noted that when you select Show Equatorial Gridlines on Setup tab in Ekos the KStars goes down. Is is possible that it's related to loading WCS on demand?

I have just tested it and it looks like the issue has been fixed. Thanks a lot Jasem.
Out of curiosity - what was the root cause of the issue?

I will take a look at joystick controls. Abort focuser function is not implemented so it will not work.

I'm constantly getting KStars crash after a few images are captured with Ekos. I cannot debug it due to the following error:

I have reports from my mates of the same issue.
phonon4qt5-backend-gstreamer has been replaced with phonon4qt5-backend-vlc was installed. So I assume that it's not notifications issue.
There's nothing meaningful in the KStars logs.

When running from terminal KStars segfaults with the following:

I'm glad everything works for you.
The speed value cannot be higher than 255 and now the driver lets you set maximum 250. So it's rather the problem of high gear reduction ratio for the motor than slow speed. I will increase maximum backlash right away. Checkout the sources in 5 minutes.
Let me add selection of various modes in a future release.

After closer look I found out that RELEASE function is not implemented in C++ library. Therefore release is achieved by resetting all PWMs after stepper motor finishes its travel to destination. You can checkout the latest code from github for testing.

Radek Kaczorek replied to the topic 'EQMOD - Park and Home Position setting?' in the forum. 3 weeks ago

1. Set the mount to your preferred parking position manually by loosing RA/DEC clutches.
2. Just after connecting EQMod driver go to Site Management tab, click Current in Park Options and then Write Data. You need to do it just once.
3. Unpark and play with your mount
4. Always park your mount at the end of your session. It will return to the position saved in point 2

If you loose power or need to restart your mount just repeat point 1 above.
