PAA disabled was created by Mohamed

Hello,

After the update, I found that the PAA is disabled as my field of view is less than 10 arcmins. I think mine with this setup is wider and I was using PAA successfully a week ago!!

Mohamed,

Can I give you another fix to try?

In the standard codebase you can find these lines in kstars/kstars/ekos/align/align.cpp, around line 1236.

    if (fovOK != (CHECK_PAH(isEnabled())))
        m_PolarAlignmentAssistant->setEnabled(fovOK);

Please REPLACE those lines with this and recompile/test:

    if (m_PolarAlignmentAssistant != nullptr)
        m_PolarAlignmentAssistant->setEnabled(fovOK);

Will the polar alignment fix be made available in the current stable release or is it advisable to move on to the nightly release?

I had this issue on a previous setup. I’ve just set up a new Linux Mint and the issue is still there. I’ve followed the instructions:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mutlaqja/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install indi-full kstars-bleeding

What else I have to do ?

Hi,

Do you mean you are having problems with the PAA (polar alignment assistant) in your new install or are you referring to not accessing the ppa to download and update your system?

I have the exact same issue with the OP, wrong FOV and disabled PAA.

Also with the code attached (from kstars website instructions) I thought I could update to the latest nightly bleeding version, but as far as I can understand, this didn’t happen to me.

Hi

Try this for the nightly version

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mutlaqja/indinightly
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install indi-full kstars-bleeding

The code that you have entered is for the current stable KStars/ekos/indi version

I have the latest nightly and the PAA issue appears to be sorted in that.

Cheers

This fix probably won't make it into Astroberry until it has first made it into the next stable release, and that release has been confirmed to be mostly working by the Astroberry developer.
