Sorry if this is an old problem. I am just getting started with my new HEQ5 mount using a direct connection. I have updated to KStars 3.6.6 and Stellarmate 1.7.9. On starting up EKOS, the EQMod Mount driver crashes. This occurs whether or not the mount is actually connected with the EQDirect cable. Using the SynScan driver does not result in a crash. Does anyone have any hints as to what I am doing wrong?
