INDI Library v1.7.6 Released. (27 Feb 2019)

First release of 2019 comes with quite a few new drivers across the board along with significant performance improvements to INDI camera and live streaming performance. Many drivers received significant updates to improve performance & stability, while a few were re-written from scratch to be in line with INDI standards. Here are some of the highlights:

Still learning, bear with me.
Couldn't switch on logs. Clicked logs button, but all the click boxes under Ekos are greyed out.
Verbosity and output boxes allow selection and tried a few in case it affected Ekos section but no luck.

Will have another go at PA tonight currently using guide scope, which may not be perfectly aligned to mount axis. Does that make a difference.

Will also try using main scope 90mm /500 FL with canon 450D

When you say reverse direction, what do you mean? do it twice East then West?

Thanks for the help

Output should be set to File, and Verbosity to Verbose. Then you can check the boxes.

By reverse, I mean, reverse the direction vector 180 degrees (in your head) and go there. Does that improve it? It seems there are cases where the vector should be reversed 180 degrees.. but I still do not understand why, maybe the math is over my head.
