This is still an issue in the latest kstars. It is detecting a filter that isn't there only in the camera module

David Rankin created a new topic ' Add Flag in Kstars Dec Degrees?' in the forum. 4 weeks ago

This used to come up with HH;MM;SS and now it's some strange combination of Decimal Degrees and Sexidecimal.

Can this be changed back to HH:MM:SS? Or can there be an option to do so? It's really difficult to copy the coordinates from a flag now.

Thanks

Okay, thanks. I didn't realize there were same version updates for stable releases. I'll update asap.

I am not using a filter wheel, at all. It is detecting one that isn't there.

I'm on Version 3.6.1 Stable

As you can see, there is no filter info being shown. Can't select any filter prams. Yet it tries to change filter before exposing.

I'm not sure how to access the QHY logs? I'm running indi on an astroberry.

This was not an issue at all before I upgraded to the latest kstars / ekos.

It only appears to be a problem in the camera module of ekos. If I do a plate solve or focus, it doesn't try to change filters and hang up.

The latest release of kstars / ekos is detecting a filter with my QHY268M that is not there.

This happened intermittently and now it wont go away. I can't take any images as it is trying to change a filter. I can't find a way to bypass the filter settings in ekos.

Also, this website wont let you login on Opera for some reason.

I used to have connection issues constantly on my pi3 and pi4. I ended up just flashing the astroberry image and it's been rock solid since.

Using latest kstars / ekos. Never had issues with ASAP before. I prefer ASTAP as it does better in the milky way. I've tried just about every setting I can change.

It fails almost immediately.

A lot of coordinate packages need the HMS DMS info to have leading 0's for single digit RA or DEC coordinates:

Format 00:00:00 +00:00:00



It appears Ekos is just writing an empty space instead of a leading 0.

My Eqod mount just started doing this out of the blue. Had connected without issue before.

RP4 - Astroberry

If I just unplug it, plug it back in, then restart Ekos - it works. Any idea what causes this?

Thanks
