It sems I should not have to do anything to save these settings, so there must be an issue.

Tonight the software started and the exposure setting was maintained so no issue there now, the dark still was not selected, so only that is now an issue.

If I am not missing anything then I will raise this as a new Ekos issue.

Terry?,
I have found that attempting to have an automatic meridian flip while tracking the Sun does not work since the pop up dialogue was added to confirm that you want to go to the Sun.
As far as Meridian flips are concerned it is the mount that needs to do the flip and you need to have Ekos configured to match what the mount requires. On my Losmandy G11 with gemini 2 you need to configure it to ensure nothing colides and there is point after which a go to produces a flip but if you leave it too late it will not do it but will beep. So, you need to make sure Ekos performs the request between those two points.

I am currently creating a new INDI environment to bring my software uptodate.

The alignment settings 'Plate Solve Capture Options' do not get saved if I disconnect, stop the INDI server and then recoonect.

Exp: resets from 3.00 to 1.00
dark gets unselected.

Am I forgetting where to save these options?

rishigarrod,

Kstars runs fine on a Raspberry Pi 4 2GB along with Ekos and PHD2 - although I have stopped using PHD2 recently and started using the internal guider.

I VNC into it over WiFi.

DrWho,

You have not provided any information about the mount - which would be useful.

This is more than likely a configuration issue, but I would be concerned that the longitude is not showing correctly.

Ekos can be set to update the mount or have the mount update Ekos, I use the first option.

EricFROL,

I notice you are testing with a Bahtinov mask.

Have you removed the mask before aligning?

Jasem,

A problem still exists but it seems slightly different.

Please see the attachment for the current error when trying to 'save as'.

Anon,

Probably just an issue with the particular Linux distribution you are using as I have always followed the install instructions under Raspberry Pi OS (formerly Raspbian) and never had any such issues.

In fact I did a new build a couple of days ago and it went flawlessly.

Jasem,

I just did a git pull for both kstars and indi and there are no updates yet.
I will wait a few hours and try again.

I have updated Kstars and Ekos and now find that the save as FITS viewer option now throws an error as shown in the attached images.
It does actually save a record but it is not readable as a FITS file.

For me it is happening with Firefox but not sure if it has spread to all up to date browsers.

Alex,

I have compiled many times on 1GB and 2GB Raspberry Pi's without running out of memory so it is probably not a memory issue.
