Stellarmate w/GPS connected to mount w/GPS #44254
My Pi4 Stellarmate is currently connected to my iOptron CEM25p. My Pi4 has a UART-based Neo6M connected. My CEM25p also has GPS. Currently, kstars is set to "GPS updates kstars". I presume the GPS will be the Neo6m and not the iOptron?

I noticed my time top right of the VNC screen is off by an hour (+1) even though I set the time zone to Phoenix. Is there a DST setting I missed?

Bottom of Kstars screen says GPS location, but to the right the numbers are wrong. Currently says +129(degrees) 25' 26", -11(degrees) 05' 46" 17h 51m 15s -39(degrees) 04' 41" (j2019.8) and the numbers change.

Checking INDI control panel, it shows lat (dd:mm:ss) as 33:26:57 which seems correct. Lon, however, is 248:18:29. Why?

Thanks.

It counts longitude from Greenwhich in the Eastern direction from 0 to 360˚. W 111:41:31 (i.e. 360˚ - 248:18:29˚) for Phoenix sounds about right .

Thank you. I just hadn't seen that format before.

Any idea why the GPS status info at the bottom of the kstars screen is so different and changes?

D'OH!

That's not the GPS location information - that's the cursor location.

Argh...
