Hello,

Very happy that this idea will be finally included into EKOS. Joined, an example with Siril, the french software DSO image processing.

Hello Jerry,
I use regularly the internal guider of Kstars. Usually I guide at +/- 0.5 arcsec with f=510mmm and 80mm diameter, on à finder 9x50 and a QHY224C. I prefer having one software than two. The internal guider borrows a lot to PHD2. It's a good thing to active the GPG option also.
You must do the calibration on the equator and near the meridian

Hello;

I make today an update of my Stellarmate system with the desktop icon. After that, the stellarmate hotspot wifi does'nt appear on my laptop. I can only connect with the item invisible wifi network. And more it tells me the password. I type "smate" then "stellar@mate" and it denies it both! What's going on ?

MORELLI created a new topic ' No guiding in simulation mode' in the forum. 2 months ago

Hello,

V3.5.8. It is no possible to simulate guiding. No stars into the image, so no calibration. The camera guiding gain is at maximum and exposure 1 or 2 seconds. Always the same message at last:
"Lost track of the guide star. Try increasing the square size or reducing pulse duration." . Is it a know issue ?

It's OK. I omitted to modify the path to the database into the quad file. Thanks.

Hi Rob,

It is just I do. Unzip the file (CLI) into /opt/watney/ with a quad file (0.6-0.7).
and setup the path option, plus watney-solve.
I'll have a look this evening.

Hello,

I install the watney API and the star database into /opt/watney-api/. I setup the path in options Alignment Ekos: /opt/watney-api/watney-api. No success !

Hi,

I try to use this new method with v3.5.8 but it fails. The others methods run well. Is there something to add in order to run well ?

Hi,

Sky are clear since somedays, so I can do images every night. But I have an issue with the guiding. After the MF is does'nt restart. This night, I was imaging M101 from 00:47 (45 images of 4 minutes). After the image 35, the guiding didn't run, just after the MF.
Hereunder the setting of calibration and the log file. Thank you for your help.

More fear than harm! The CLS filter had unscrewed and was floating in the wheel. After reassembling it, the wheel worked normally again.
