Warnings during Autofocus #55995
Hi,

during Autofocus (I use the 'linear' algorithm) I get warnings :
[2020-06-23T01:00:42.523 WEST INFO ][     org.kde.kstars.ekos.focus] - "Capturing image..."
[2020-06-23T01:00:42.526 WEST WARN ][     org.kde.kstars.ekos.focus] - Capture called while already in progress. Capture is ignored.

[2020-06-23T01:00:48.938 WEST INFO ][     org.kde.kstars.ekos.focus] - "Image received."

Everything seems to work fine. Can this be just ignored, or might it be a hint to a possible race condition?

Warnings during Autofocus #55998
I'm wondering the same thing. I recently had the issue that the automatic autofocus upon a filter change did not work , and my logs showed the message

Ignoring Received FITS CCD1 as it has the wrong capture mode 1

When I updated Kstars and INDI from the stable ppa:mutlaqja/ppa to the nightly builds ppa:mutlaqja/indinightly, I got the autofocus back. However, the logs still show the same message. This is with an ASI1600MM Pro camera and the ZWO EFW.

It should be uncritical, we are working on it. Some focusers report the focuser position even when the position does not change, while the current version of EKOS expects this only after changes. That’s why this warning shows up. You can ignore it.

Should be fixed with the latest version. There remains one situation where selecting a focus star also creates a warning. But it does not create any harm, it’s simply a minor bug.

But removing it bears a certain risk of breaking focusing, so I first try to get a better understanding.
