Jussi, please check that this helps the detected crash in KStars if INDI gets disconnected while running Watney or ASTAP.  I believe what was happening was that StellarSolver was logging that it was aborting when it was getting deleted, but KStars hadn't disconnected it from the object it had been logging to, but the object it was logging to had already been deleted, so it was logging to a non-existent object.  There really is no need for any logging if it is getting deleted, so I think this is a good solution.

Right, so the crashes are solved. I haven't really found anything after that. Just very, very minor details: in KStars, the tooltip for both Watney solver and ASTAP solver reads 'Astrometry.net solve-field binary'

Wait, I could swear I fixed that a couple of days ago. Note this change here:  github.com/KDE/kstars/commit/961575df986...4c4b0f403b84c9c2ce1d
Are you using the latest KStars from GIT master?

Oh you're probably right! My bad... I must have forgot to pull before I started testing.

With regards to detecting out of focus donut stars. I had thoughts about whether it would be more robust if two star detection passes with different algorithms could be employed. One algorithm tailored to large FWHM donut star shape; then switch to a reliable point like star algorithm such as gaussian when donuts are not detected.

Yes, this is along the lines of what I am thinking about for the focus module.  One parameter that really makes a difference is the convolution filter used by SEP, particularly the FWHM of the shape used.  I made that a setting and its very easy to change.  I was thinking of changing that number based on feedback from the last successful star extraction and information about whether KStars expects that the star will get bigger or smaller.  As we get farther from focus, we would increase the FWHM, and as we get closer, we would decrease it.  Another similar parameter to play with is the min area parameter.

I am having issues compiling KStars. It appears to be related to Stellarsolver 2.0 changes to kstars/ekos/align/remoteastrometryparser.h line 56.
I have a thread for my issue here. www.indilib.org/forum/development/11639-...ng-kstars.html#82431
Please have a look. Thank you.

Yes, this is KStars taking advantage of a newer feature now in StellarSolver. You need to update and install the latest version StellarSolver and you will then have that feature.

It was compiled in the process with the AstroPi3 build script. I believed it built version 2.0. But I don't know how to verify that.
