Most akkor mi van?
Can you elaborate a bit because I am lost what is failing and what is working?...
I tried these drivers only with a serial connection from my laptop, I never use Bluetooth or other wireless solutions because they are not 100 % reliable. However, I daily use the wedge version between a Skywatcher Merlin <-> Raspberry Pi3 via serial connection. It works like a charm.
I have also a Virtuoso mount and I am the kinda maintainer-author of these drivers.
The indi_skywatcherAltAzMount driver crashes immediately when the serial connection is established at my side. I discourage to use this old driver, I would remove from the stack, but Jasem wanted to keep it around.
Please use the "Skywatcher Alt-Az Wedge" aka indi_skywatcherAltAzSimple driver. I don't see any positioning problem with this driver+Virtuoso. Just make sure in INDI Control Panel/Skywatcher Alt-Az Wedge:
- Wedge Mode set to Disabled.
- Don't use the parking functions if you don't need what I suppose the case.
- Naked eye or DSLR use? If the mount fails to track a star:
1. Raise Tracking Values if it falls behind.
2. Lower the Tracking Values if it goes ahead.
- With DSLR don't expect more than a few seconds of shots with the higher mag. lenses on this mount.

Yes because it is still the old, crashing version. Jasem did not upload the fixed version by some reason yet.
Yeap, I fixed the build two days ago.

I have to add extensive optional logging to this driver because the verbosity is not enough for diagnosis.

I checked the video and did some math with the results there, but I have no idea why RA update does not work. To be more weird, the results there do not make any sense. The RA jumps like random offset after syncing, but its update is identical to Dec in the protocol. I think this is a bug in the handset firmware, but strangely enough it works with my AltAz mount with V3 handset.
@Frank: KStars 2.9.6 was released a few days ago. Can you download to your Mac give a try? edu.kde.org/kstars/#download
I am the most curious what are your results now?
- Syncing works.
- RA does not sync, Dec syncs properly.
- None of them syncs properly.
If Frank is lucky, it is possible that this bug is present only in V4 handsets (kross has this version), but not in V3. I and Frank have this version.
Frank, let us now your experiences.
Frank, please wait a bit, the issues are not fixed yet as you can read in the previous two posts.
