Hi everyone
The mount slews fine but align does not move the mount to the new after plate solving...
Works OK with earlier build; Build: 2020-03-08T08:53:10Z
.Not with latest git.

Any ideas?
TIA,
Steve

That does not look like a KStars problem, aligning works as expected. It looks more like a problem within EQmod or the mount itself since the syncs align is sending do not seem to be acknowledged. The align module recognizes that it is some 1° off, sends the correct position via a SYNC to the mount and tries then to slew to the desired position. But it seems like the mount does not slew at all after the second slew command. The only explanation I have is that the mount ignores somehow the SYNC. Maybe an encoder problem, maybe the internal pointing model has a problem.

I am currently operating on commit 416181f40219cf4265f09fd50015333657ae6177 where everything runs fine.

Hi Wolfgang
Sorry to be a pain, but the stable version aligns fine. It's only the git which doesn't.
I attach logs of the stable and git versions.
Why does the stable version work but the git doesn't?
Same mount...

Indeed, in the older build there is one additional log entry:
[2020-06-29T23:02:08.582 CEST DEBG ][           org.kde.kstars.indi] - ISD:Telescope sending coords RA: "18h 43m 04s" ( 18.7179 ) DE: " 39° 08' 43\"" ( 39.1453 )
It seems like the latest build does not send the SYNC command to the mount. Strange...

Thanks for the confirmation.
Is there a workaround for this one?

Try to back to commit 632c414357b51aa7e92642bba7e30eaef6d5fbe7

I have no idea what exactly happened, but there was a recent change to INDI calls that might cause the problem.

Is that...

git checkout 632c414357b51aa7e92642bba7e30eaef6d5fbe7

In the folder where I have the current kstars git?

and then:
make
in the build/kstars folder?

**EDIT
I took a risk and built it anyway. Now the align works.
log with git checkout attached.

I'm not sure what happens next? Do I report the issue formally somewhere?

Many thanks. Maybe we need your support for tracking down the problem. I quickly checked it with simulators, but the telescope simulator seems to work properly and syncs to the mount.
