After restarting KStars, I can't get any optical trains to appear in any dropdowns. Only if I go into the optical trains editor, change something, only then do the dropdowns populate. But if I exit KStars and restart it, the dropdowns are empty again.



An expanded view of the optical trains. Ignore the "New Train", it was added by mistake and I can't get rid of it.

I've seen this behavior. Let me try to reproduce it so I can track down what's going on. Most likely is that database profile information was not saved properly.

Regarding the platesolving, I tested in French using 0,75 (Europeans should really use decimal point instead of comma!!) and it worked as expected.

I still cannot reproduce the issue of deleting a train... does anything show in the KStars logs? perhaps some error or warning?

Jasem,

Your recent update fixed the problem of the dropdowns always being empty after a restart.

Thanks!

Please have the system remember autofocus focus settings with each train, for those with two or more motorized focusers that require totally different settings,

I second this. I have two telescopes, an 80mm refractor, and an 8" Newtonian, each with an autofocuser, and they each require different autofocus parameters to get good results.

Same here, I have 4 setups (never too much :-D), 3 refractors and one reflector. It would be great to keep per setup settings.
And I also have the same problem with the delete button, can't delete the incorrect optical trains inserted, the button is not available , it's not even clickable as described.

For those where the delete button stays inactive: try selecting a row and press Shift-Enter.

We'll move the settings to the trains, but there is a lot of work to do. Also, now most of the settings are global so there are retained regardless of train or even profile.

Which focus setting should be saved for each train? Let's start with a small important set of settings then we can extend this later.

That worked, thanks. But I sure wouldn't expect users to know that :D

Well, for me it didn't work and create even more lines :-)
But I just updated with today's version and it's working now.

Per-train focus settings are now in master. Please test and check if it is OK. We'll then move to other modules.
