Is the adapter plugged into a usb hub? Powered or otherwise? If so, I do not recommend that. The adapters work best connected directly to the system. Just my experience using a Raspberry Pi.

Andrew created a new topic ' Mosaic Overlap does not factor into Mosaic FOV' in the forum. 2 days ago

I was in the process of creating a set of FOV symbols that represent an assortment of mosaic FOVs when I noticed that changing the overlap percentage does not change the FOV values given for the total field of view of a mosaic. Fortunately it is represented correctly in the preview window. It appears to be a small oversight not to factor in the overlap percentage for actual FOV values for reference.

userdb.sqlite was the first place I looked for my entry, but I did not find what I was looking for within it. I will look again. Thank you.

I found the editing functions of the Manually Add a Deep-Sky Object lacking. Specifically how to delete an entry.
It would good to have a list of custom object, similar to how flags are organized in the future.

For now, is there a file I can Edit/Delete to remove my added object(s)?

Thank you.

Fonts are a bit tricky. They reflect the system theme and appearance settings. At least on Linux.

I'm not familiar with Astrophysics mounts. But the behavior is reminiscent of a pier side function. Check the settings on the mount with the hand controller for it and turn off anything like that you find. Just a guess though.

Welcome to INDI.
Create a profile for the INDI drivers you want for your equipment. Save it. This is #1 a the top of the EKOS window. #2 is starting the INDI service. #3 is to Connect/Disconnect the Driver (an auto connect option is available in part #1 Profile Setup)

Why not dither every frame? It only takes a few moments.

You should be able to use it with the Polar Alignment Assistant tool found in the align module in it's stock configuration.
I have accomplished something very similar with an ASI 120 with a 50mm lense (same FL as polemaster) mounter on the RA axis.
