I'm involved in a project to use the Stellarmate align module to make my large dob (Nexus/ServoCat) center the requested object in the field more accurately by using plate solving after a GOTO slew. The weather finally allowed me to do some field testing last week. I captured some images during testing. I attempted to use one of the images I had captured to do a "Load and Slew" but Kstars and Ekos both crashed to desk top upon selection of the image. I'm on RPI4 and Stellarmate 1.4.6. Any suggestions are appreciated.
Hi, there has been some discussion on this topic in another post "1.4.6 release - impressions, problems, etc. Please post." Most of us are having a similar problem on a RPI4 and 1.4.6 For me, everything works fine until I do a " capture and slew". It will plate slove, center the target, guide etc and can even do single images but once I start an image sequence, it will crash. Have not tried "Load and SLew" though but looks like the same problem.
Tried doing the same actions using only simulators in the profile and it still crashes to desktop. Also tried "Capture and Solve" with the simulator profile, it also crashes. Thought I would try submitting the image directly to Astrometry.net. The result is: the image is solved without an issue. Fingers crossed for 1.5.0.
