First of all, thanks for the great effort. I wish to know whether K5IIs, K-01, and K-3 supported as well?

Tom replied to the topic 'Stop trying to use Astroberry kstars and ekos - I'm tired' in the forum. 1 week ago

Hi,

Can't blame Astroberry at all. It is because Astroberry doesn't update kstars via nightly or Github. So, sometimes we need to wait until the stable version comes out. Actually you are having the same situation with me, my Pentax DSLR doesn't support in Windows at all. I have to always depend on Linux when using Pentax DSLR. :) My other devices all connected successfully in Kstars ( no matter SM os or Astroberry or AstroPi3 script.)

Cheers.

I have just made libpasastro library available for Astroberry. You will probably need to remove the original one before installing new one. Also you need to select which repository should be used for installation (note -t switch below), because libpasastro will be now available both from original Patrick's repo and astroberry repo. I'm not sure how it will work during next update. Please test and report.
<code>
sudo apt remove libpasastro
sudo apt install -t buster libpasastro
</code>


remove libpasastro also remove ccdciel,skychart and others. Do we need to reinstall each of them?

Yes, before that you have to so called downgrade to compatible firmware. I am using my asi120MC mainly for guiding now. No more planetary. :)
