It's good to hear that Starbook is ready to be supported by INDI. Thank you for the great contribution!! Here is one thing about the pattern of RA in the response to GETSTATUS command.

static regex pattern(R"((\d+)\+(\d+)\.(\d+))");

The 3rd (\d+) group of HMS returns from my Starbook S is ranged from 0-9, so I doubt that this group should be the fraction part of minutes rather than seconds. Does it mean that there is the difference between Starbook S & Starbook 1 regarding to HMS definition?

I can confirm that on Starbook L values are 0-9. So probably one tenth of a minute. You can fill bug report or make PR, as I used all my free time on 0.5. GitHub issues

Hello

I have the starbook Ten with firmware 5.00.
It failed With the last version of the Strabook driver. It was working well with the previous version.

Kstar message:
KStars detected INDI driver indi_starbook_telescope crashed. Please check INDI server log in the Device Manager.

Console log message (with all debug activated)
2019-05-05T14:22:40: [ERROR] map::at
2019-05-05T14:22:40: [INFO] Starbook is online.

With Wireshared, only 1 HTTP session was done:
<html><!--VERSION=5.00--><HEAD><meta http-equiv=Pragma content=no-cache></head>VERSION=5.00</html>

What can I do to help debugging ?

I found and fixed the issue in v0.7 of the driver. It should be out on nightly later today.

Version 0.7 which is bundled with 1.7.8, creates regression for Starbook L/S. This is intended audience for this driver, and changes regarding Starbook TEN shouldn't break experience for older device.

should the parser then converts all responses to upper case first?

Hi,
I finally got round to updating the starbook drivers to 0.7 this morning, and well, I have similar problems..

version 0.5 worked both on astroberry (raspi 3B+) and on ubuntu. Does anyone have any ideas? or should I revert back to 0.5? How? Using starbook original on sx mount.
cheers

This morning I rebuilt the Raspi 3B+ with ubuntu mate 18 32bit, as I'd had a few probs with another driver. That now works, but I'm getting the same problem with the starbook 0.7 driver.
I've built libindi etc from source,have used indistarter and client.
The same thing happened with the astroberry server install.....

version 0.5 worked both on astroberry (raspi 3B+) and on ubuntu. Does anyone have any ideas? or should I revert back to 0.5? How? Using starbook original on sx mount. Has anyone got an idea?
clear skies to one and all

I will look into this summer. I have extracted my work to this repository. I see you are confident with compiling drivers from source.
You can compile this driver using instructions from .travis file.
