INDI control panel error - Nexstar SE mount #45235
It means what it says, the firmware for that model of mount does not report pier side.
The SE mounts are normally used in Alt Az mode where the pier side property is not relevant and even if the mount is set up equatorially then because it is a fork mount it doesn't change side of pier.
