There aren't enough stars there, put the gain to 90 or something.

Isn't this an equatorial mount? Perhaps use EQMod driver with it?

I was able to solve in just 1.3 seconds with a focal length of 700.

This just happens with capturing flats?

It should work if you decrease the scope focal length from 900 to say 400. Go to mount tab, change focal length of primary scope to 400, then go back and solve and it should work. Problem is with narrow FOVs it can fail or take a long time to solve.

Wow thanks for all the effort put into this. I've linked to the documentation now to your response above so that prospective users may use this information when imaging. Thank you for all the dedication!

Hello Tim,

Can you please attach the logs?

I just finished adding Nearest Math Plugin to INDI::Alignment Subsystem. It was tested with EQMod using the alignment system instead of its own built-in alignment system developed by Jean-Luc. The Nearest Math plugin was adapter from the nearest algorithm used in EQMod, and I have to say it performs a lot better for those who want a quick Capture & Solve experience.

The Built in Math & SVG plugins do a much better job at N-Star alignment modeling. So they are worth investigating for those who are interested in this. For the time mean, I invite all users to try out this new math plugin. It is available for drivers that use the INDI Alignment Subsystem:
+ AstroTrac
+ Celestron AUX
+ EQMod (but you must explicitly switch to INDI Alignment in Options)
+ Temma
+ SkyWatcher driver.

I haven't tested this for Alt-Az mounts so it would be good to report back for such mounts. Recently, the alignment system in INDI received an overhaul. This is the first time I take a stab at it in years since it's probably one of the most complex aspects of INDI. At any rate, please test and report back.

what's the issue with the logs? please elaborate. Check this guide: www.indilib.org/individuals/logs-howto.html

Correct, the mount needs to be aligned (1 or 2 star) before you connect to it.

Assuming the mount is already aligned, this should be straight forward. Perhaps enable telescope logs so we can see what's going on? Baud rate is correct?
