I have noticed that the frame orientation for large mosaics don't quite match what I expect. If they are meant to wrap the on the celestial sphere in the same way an FOV symbol can 'Lock to Celestial Pole', I find they don't match up. It should adapt for all declinations, but the pattern is more or less the same until it approaches the poles where things get a bit wonky. At the celestial equator, there should be no significant rotation, crossing to the southern sky, the scheme does not work at all in the southern hemisphere which should turn the opposite way.

Since it can use the synscan hand controller, there is no reason why it wouldn't work with the EQmod driver and cable.
Did guy forget to unpark it

The Stellarmate only has one built in WiFi antenna that it uses by default as a hotspot to connect to. Therefore, without an additional external WiFi adapter, there is no other way for the Pi to connect to the AZ-Gti built-in hotspot. So basically the IP address did nothing because I don't believe they shared a network. I would recommend a standard EQmod cable for this situation.

You should disable power saving features from within the camera menu when doing astrophotography to avoid such issues. Just manually turn off the camera display when you want.

Seems to be working. Thank you :)
Can you elaborate on the 'older systems' point?
Is a system resources issue? I was compiling on a Raspberry Pi 4 with only 4gb of memory.

Thank you.
I also encountered this while building KStars at a point when it is generating files called Options.h and Options.cpp.
Googling 'Too many signals to create unique bit masks' is no help. Any idea what's going on there?
I've deleted everything in the AstroRoot folder to try from a completely clean build. I'm still waiting to see if that helps.

I had an issue compiling Core INDI today, reported as 'Could not find Libev'. It was a simple fix to reinstall/update it.

sudo apt-get install libev-dev

You should be able to compile it locally once you setup a few things.

I can confirm Peter's observation. Using the toolbar mosaic panel button from the toolbar will open multiple mosaic planner windows.

I have found one more thing to improve.
The Mosaic frame on the sky map does not disappear on its own when the planner is closed. It does go away if I try to open the planner again, but the first click doesn't reopen it. A second click does bring it back though.
