Hello,

I connected Ekos to the AZ GTi mount successfully, but the goto actions seem irrelevant.
For example, when moving only in altitude, it also moves in azimuth (is it using equatorial mode?).
When connecting with the Android app, it does say Alt mode.

Thank you and clear skies!

Hello,

On my side, I am using the notifications to launch a small java program playing a mp3 file.
This warns me when the sequence stopped, and I can snooze it by closing the app (which you cannot do if you run the sound directly).

However, I did not find the appropriate event to use.
For example, when I stop the sequence manually, the alarm is triggered.

Hello, this is unfortunately not true. Only the focuser temperature will work. Not the observatory one. The weather temperature was added after my feature implementation, and was not made available to it.

I would also advise, like others, to start telescope cooling more in advance, so that it gets more stable sooner.

Clear skies.

Hello,
If your focus issue is indeed due to the temperature, I think it could be solved by the feature I recently developed : trigger autofocus on temperature change. It uses the focuser probe, if available, to compare the last focus temperature to the current temperature, and triggers the autofocus in case it reaches the specified limit.

The feature should be delivered in the next release, but you can test it with the nightly.

Clear skies!

Hello,

How could it be possible to have drift if you are guiding?

Hello Jasem,

In focus.cpp, method Focus::setAutoFocusResult, I always get a null pointer when trying to access the Temperature property (although the logs show the temperature, and it is displayed in the INDI control panel):

INDI::Property * np = currentFocuser->getProperty("TemperatureNP");

Meanwhile, I noticed I could get temperature value updates in Focus::processFocusNumber.
This is even better.
I will perform some tests and will soon propose my code for the feature.

I managed to run the debugger, and of course we get a null pointer for the property "TemperatureNP".
I also tried to understand the indi driver code, what the difference between TemperatureN and TemperatureNP is. But I think I would need help here.

Hello,

I am currently having a look on how this Delta T > threshold focus trigger could be implemented.
Like for you, the learning curve is a bit hard.
My USB Focus V2 does have a temperature probe, but it seems I am still getting the default value -274.
