I believe I downloaded the source and compiled it. I also installed by sudo apt-get etc.....

If I try to install again, it says everything is already up to date.

Rob Lancaster replied to the topic 'Mount model' in the forum. 34 minutes ago

Hi Magnus,

So I believe you misunderstand. I wrote the Mount Model feature in the align tab specifically because I have a Losmandy G11 and it really benefits from multiple align points. I'm not sure how many the G11 can take, but the more points you get the better the pointing model. I don't always use it, but I like that i have the feature. Ekos does not save any alignment data when it does any plate solve in the alignment module, it simply does plate solves and tells the mount where it is located. What the mount or driver does with that information is up to it.

For the Losmandy G11, it does all the alignment points and modeling internally. There are two commands that the G11 takes, the sync command and the align command. You need to make sure that the Gemini system is getting any additional alginment points from plate solving as an "align" command so that it updates the pointing model instead of shifting the model to do a sync. There is a menu option that you need to change in the hand paddle to make sure it is getting the right command. Once it builds a pointing model, it can retain that model from night to night, or you can replace the model with a new one. You cannot export the model to a computer or transfer a model to the mount as far as I know.

For EQMod, it can also build very complex models, but the model is built in the driver, not in the mount. But again this is not handled in Ekos, it is handled in the INDI driver. Since here the model is built on your computer, you can save and load the model using the INDI control panel. As I have said before, I don't know everything about the EQMod driver so I can't speak more to that.

Thanks,

Rob

Hello Dan,

How did you install INDI? Looks like there is a problem with the driver linking.

Jasem, would it be possible for you to rebuild libgphoto2 with the latest updates?
Marcus Meissner has updated it with the newest version of PKTriggercord for the Pentax cameras (3 days ago).
My K-70 has some issues with Stellarmate/Indi, I can take a picture and download it to the Raspberry Pi, but I cannot not set exposure time and ISO from Stellarmate/Indi

Magnus Larsson replied to the topic 'Mount model' in the forum. 3 hours 22 minutes ago

Hi!

I have a Losmandy G11, and I thought that this mount could not benefit from the Mount model in Ekos. Is there a way to upload the model to the mount, or is it jus saved in Ekos?

My understanding is that if it is just preserved in Ekos, then why would the mount type matter?

Yes, as you can hear, I don't really understand what the "Mount model" does. Even now....:/

Eric replied to the topic 'Re:Mount model' in the forum. 4 hours 9 minutes ago

A small comment of this excellent feature for which I need your opinion...
In terms of robustness of a permanent setup, adding sync points is a weakness: it is better to start with a deterministic mount model, and use it without modification.
So that when something goes wrong during the alignment procedure, the ability of the setup to abandon the current target and slew to the next is preserved. We perhaps all got in the situation where the alignment enters a weird loop because of a wrong sync point.
Thus the method is, once the model is loaded, to always use a differential goto during alignment, and disable the model reset on alignment failures or job startup.
