Steve,

What controls the HAT?
Is it something in INDI?

Slowlearn,

Can you reprogram the Arduino to swap the ports?

Paul replied to the topic 'Latest Build - from about an hour ago is aborting when trying to connect devices' in the forum. 19 hours 44 minutes ago

Determined that this has something to do with QSI CCD, because it works when I replace the camera with CCD simulator,

I have also performed another git pull but no change.

As soon as I connect to te devices the kstars aborts.

I cannot see anything obvious in the log.

Mike,

There is a lot to like about the internal guider, which has come a long way since I last attempted to use it, much like the rest of Ekos.

PHD2 drift alignment is the feature I missed most, but also the ability of taking and storing multiple darks etc.

JCJ,

I have had to swap to the internal guider as although I connected I could not get it to calibrate.

This only happended after I loaded a build 3-4 days ago.

The internal guider has definately improved since I last attempted to use it but I miss some of the features of PHD2.

Peter,

The solver works faster when you are close to where it thinks it is.

In your case I can only see an iteration #1, it would be interesting to see what happens with an iteration #2 which should be faster.

You will need to ask for more accuracy to do this.

Another thing is to ensure you have the correct focal length set.

Hy,

As I said, do another pull and it will be fixed - I had the same problem when I did it immediately but after waiting a few hours it was fine.

Hy,

If you do another pull this should work as Jasem has now fixed it.

Paul created a new topic ' FITS QSI Camera name' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

I use two different QSI cameras and when I use INDI they both store the name in the FITS header as 'QSI CCD' which, while accurate, it not enough for me to tell them apart. If I use Nebulosity I get 'QSI 683' or 'QSI 583'.

I would like to see something simlar with INDI.

I have updated this to highlight that stopping the scheduler seems to be the cause of some follow on issues.

Paul created a new topic ' Scheduler reset jobs is not working' in the forum. 3 weeks ago

I have updated to the latest source and reloaded a scheduler job that had already completed.

I selected the reset jobs button but it does not appear to be doing anything.

I ended up creating another scheduler job and it had no issues.

Marc,

I think the issue is more than just resetting the Dome Ignored flag.
If you don't have a Dome then why is it happening and secondly what triggered this in the first place?

Doug,

I had the same issue after stopping the scheduler and trying to restart it.

In the end I had to completely exit kstars and start again.

Jasem et al,

I also would like to offer thanks to everyone involved with this project - it is a pleasure to use and improving all the time.

Sometimes I notice new features and think what a good idea.
