I am using the Orthographic projection but only because for me, it's the most visually appealing and it does not feel awkward when doing rotations on screen.
But tastes are tastes of course.

nMAC replied to the topic 'Moravian G2 8300 color - Supported?' in the forum. 3 days ago

Well I am using the mono version and it works very well. On the Moravian site they make no distinction on color and color and they say:
" Libraries and drivers supporting this standard are now available for all CCD cameras of the Gx series, connected through both USB and Ethernet."
I suppose the color model it's supported on INDI too.

Didn't know about that! Anyway my focus routine is much sharper with tthat option enabled. Go figure!
Now it's disabled because of the stated problem. It pauses and never resume.

It also happens on the focus module, some days ago I had autofocus with "guiding suspend" option, in the middle of the session, after the focusing, the guiding was not resumed and had to shut everything off and restart.

nMAC replied to the topic 'Re:tracking / polar alignment bad' in the forum. 7 days ago

I am having exactly the same behavior, and it's even worse as it approximate the meridian.
My guiding is very good giving me an error between 0.3 and 0.5 but stars get oblong above 60 degrees altitude.
One thing that I am going to check is the counterweight, instead of having only one at the end of the shaft, I will add another one and distribute the weight on the shaft.
My balance is not perfect too, I have it more heavy on EAST side.

nMAC replied to the topic 'guiding: via guider or mount?' in the forum. 1 week ago

On my H-EQ5 pulseguide works better than ST4 but on my Vixen GPD2 it's the opposite, I "feel" the mount more responsive to ST4. It's also much more stable.
I have tried also no Orion SVP and LXD-75. Same results.
It varies from different mounts and mesh/wheel/backlash combinations, so, I would try both and see what is best for you.

nMAC replied to the topic 'Summary Preview screen not working' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

This problem has ressurrected again in the last build.
The preview and image count (image/sequence/overall) only works if the Kstars Fits Viewer option is selected on Ekos options.
If you deselect Kstars Fits Viewer it stops working.

nMAC replied to the topic 'Moonlite driver does not focus' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

Well it seems the problem is really in ekos interface, I have 100 steps defined but when I press Focus in or Focus Out the status
message says it moved 0 steps and the focuser obviously dos not move.

It's not the driver itself I can move the focuser using the indi panel options.
