Issues or general comments of the new Raspbian Based Stellarmate 1.5.0 #50286
I have taken the plunge and replaced my Pi3 with the Pi 4.
All seems to work well with HEQ5, 294MC, 224MC and Pegasus PPB.

One question I have is should the Update button in the StallaMate dashboard work?
Mine runs the percentage usual goes to about 3% then I get a message saying the update was successful but the update icon remains red with a little red exclamation mark next to it.

After pairing a bluetooth device, I don't know how to assign a serial port to the device. The device is BTdir. This is connected to EQ6.

Hi,
use terminal on stellarmate desktop and update using :
sudo apt update  &&  sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Cheers

One other question on your configuring of the hard coded IP address. Did you use the network tools GUI that's built into Linux? I've been using this tool as I thought it was the preferred way to do this type of thing, but its leading to constant soft disconnects of the interface.

Thanks, Craig

Decided to give StellarMate another try on Rpi 4 with a fresh install of 1.5.1.

Using the iPad app, I get an error when attempting to access the desktop. The iPad app is version 1.9.13. I think I heard there is a newer iOS app, but my version is the latest on the App Store. The error occurs both when I am connected to the hotspot and when connected to my home WiFi.

Attached is a screen shot of the error. I had the same issue that prevented me from using 1.4.6. I have cleared the browser cache on my iPad, as suggested on the Facebook group.

Please use this beta version now: testflight.apple.com/join/yPEDodh6

Hopefully in a few days, we will work on resolving the other issues with communication ..etc and release it as stable in the App store.

solved. This is advice from jasem.

I am aware of this issue and working on a solution for it. Will update you soon.

You can install blueman and use that instead. I will include it in the next update of stellarmate.

sudo apt-get -y install blueman

then restart and you will see the blueman icon and use that to setup to your device.

Upgraded to 1.5.1
Ran a 60x240s sequence. All on RPI4 (as quoted below). Not a single problem. Really nice!

Well, there was one issue which is not RPI4 or 1.5 specific and has been there for quite a while.
Bias frames. (this was reported before).
Often, Ekos takes bias frames but they are completely empty (no signal whatsoever).
Usually this happens on the first run, when switching from Lights or Darks to Bias.
Switching back to Lights and taking a few exposures makes Bias to behave normally.
Couldn't quite figure out the exact pattern.
At least I know now that the issue exists and sort of know how to get around it.

Thanks!

Everything was running on RPI. VNC from Windows PC (wired) and Android tablet (wireless).
Polar Align. 3-4 stars align. Autoguiding (internal). Meridian flip (went well without any interaction).
No autofocus (I don't have an autofocuser). No scheduler, just a single 100x120s sequence.
ZWO cameras. HEQ5 mount (cable connection). Astrometry.net (offline) with sextractor.
This coming weekend I am going to travel to a dark side (from Bortle 9 to Bortle 4) and try it there.
After that I'll try to upgrade to 1.5.1.
(Jasem mentioned that it could be done from the dashboard but people complained that there were still no updates as of earlier today).

It is a stellarmate application for android tablet, but it can be connected, but it takes a long time to connect. Do you have any tips for a quick connection?
