Having critters that want to eat you is something I never have to worry about here in Ireland :-) Worst thing that happened me is a hedgehog scaring the life out of me one night. They make weird noises and can move pretty fast!!!

I can only imagine what the skies are like in Uganda. Must be fantastic.

Once you get comfortable with EKOS and everything is running smoothly you can leave it running and go to bed :-) I do this regularly now and It parks the scope and closes the roof when finished. I even get it to send me an SMS when done.

Is this still working? I'm pretty sure it was working for me before I did the last update? I dont have AIRMASS headers now in the fits files for some strange reason.

This symptom can happen if you send commands (such as query slew done) to the mount too quickly.
I wrote a mount controller that uses AUX commands through the handset. I wait 1second between 'query slew done' commands.

My local club may be interested in a workshop/demo of indi with kstars.
Has anyone any resources like presentation slides, marketing material, high level diagrams etc etc.
Thanks,

Derek replied to the topic 'Ability To Setup Sequences Without INDI Running' in the forum. 1 month ago

I know what you mean. And you cant really use the indi simulators to build them since the details will be different.
I work around this by manually editing the sequence xml files. I copy an existing sequence xml, open it up in vscode or something like that and start hacking away to create a new sequence file. It generally works.

Yes I've used astroimagej Its pretty good. Now I use astropy photutils and I think its better....
Sorry for any confusion, I dont want kstars or indi to become a photometry tool.... I would just like airmass added as a fits header to the images. Its an environmental property just like, SQM which is currently added as a header. This property could have many uses to other fields too, not just photometry.
