I wondered the same thing. Which OS are you running the app on? I can't get PA to run properly on Android tablet at all.

PAA on Stellarmate 1.6.1 is not working well at all for me on Android (V9) tablet. It does well until it gets to the plotted triangle and then it becomes sluggish during the refresh and eventually becomes totally unresponsive. No buttons or any other aspect is accessible forcing me to close the app.

When setting the temperature for my ASI533MC, the time it takes to cool down the sensor is extremely slow. I have tried various settings for the degreesC/min but it doesn't seem to change the time it takes at all. It is currently taking around 20 minutes to cool my sensor to -10C from 5C. I have tried values as high as 10C/min and nothing seems to change the rate.

I can try and capture some logs next time out but was wondering if this was a know issue.

Thanks.

I run a small rig with a rather large FOV (~3 degrees +-). In the targets tab, the FOV frame becomes rather garbled when choosing this large FOV for framing. Would it be possible to scale down the target image frame when going over a certain FOV (or some other technique) in order to betterĀ  accommodate the framing information? Thanks!

Meant to ask, what are the clear dimensions that you are using for the opening? I am looking at doing something similar but I am having trouble deciding how much clearance I need. Is there some relationship you are using? For example, how long is the longest point of your setup (i.e. the length from the tip of the counter weight shaft to the top of the scope.) How much clearance did you leave? Thanks and I hope you are making progress with your network.....

How long is that extension cord? I used one during an experiment and found it to be causing poor signal. Maybe you could try losing the extension cord and try a longer ethernet cable temporarily as an experiment.

I am using the TP-LINK AV1200 powerline adapters and they have been pretty solid performers. Make sure you're not feeding them through surge protectors or powerstrips or you will likely have issues as these devices tend to pull the signal down and may cause frequent drop outs. As a matter of fact, you don't even want any of those devices on the same circuit if possible. They are affectionately known as signal suckers!

Thanks Peter. 32 bit version is working. The only issue I see is that when selecting a target and choosing 'Track" from within kStars, after the scope slews to the target, the kStars message window still indicates "slewing" rather than "tracking" after it completes the slew to target. It does seem to be tracking though. My real scope is out of commission at the moment with a bad worm gear. Once I make the repairs, I'll try it out under the stars.
When using an ASCOM camera within EKOS, as I mentioned earlier, there is no option to select the type of image such as light, dark, etc. Again not a major problem but thought I should point it out.
Thank you for all of your efforts with this. It is a great compliment to kStars and INDI in general.

Do you have 32 bit version? The 32 bit link isn't working....Thanks.

I have attached the log from INDI server for windows as well as kStars log. There is no option in EKOS control panel to enable logging for ASCOM telescope sim....
