Tom Gibson replied to the topic 'Access to Indiserver & -web in Subnet' in the forum. 1 week ago

It is possible by subnet/supernet you mean one subnet connecting to another through a router. If you have that already set up and working then you can use the default ports. In the Ekos profile editor you explicitly specify the remote host and (default) port of the indiserver on the subnet. If you are asking about the webmanager look at github.com/knro/indiwebmanager to see if that helps.

Tom Gibson replied to the topic 'KStars crashes repeatedly - FITS-viewer associated?' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

I was trying to do other things and did not take the time to look into why it was happening. Probably not helpful but
I'll attach a log from 3 different nights, I have another 4 that all appear to end in a similar way. I think this indicates a crash or more frequently progress stops and the UI is unresponsive, so they could be a forced kill of KStars.

Tom Gibson replied to the topic 'KStars crashes repeatedly - FITS-viewer associated?' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

I have had issues with KStars terminating or becoming unresponsive while collecting multiple images. "Use FITS viewer" is checked and it seemed to possibly be somehow related. With ongoing bad weather have not progressed collecting logs to submit a query. I don't know if it is a real issue but have the following after seeing the advise to run KStars in a terminal session.

Thanks for the quick replies, I'll try these. Wanted something for a quick screening. I intend to get to PixInsight but it looks like a steep learning curve for a first timer, so I was thinking of doing that during snow season.
Thanks again

Tom Gibson created a new topic ' How do you work with fits files under linux' in the forum. 4 weeks ago

In between the clouds and full moon I'm collecting images to use them to learn about stacking and processing. The default for opening .fits files on my system is gimp but by default it shows just one or two of the brightest stars. The FITS viewer seems like a good representation of the image but it minimizes on each file open and requires going back and forth between windows. It there a utility or application that assists in flipping through FITS images to give a quick evaluation of whether it would add or detract if included? Alternatively batch conversion to some other format for evaluation. Attached example of consecutive images, perhaps a passing car light?

This is how mine looks, I just use the default ports.

Me again, sudo xrandr --fb 1920x1080 in the nomachine window had an effect, so need to find a way to do something
like that permanently on boot.

Sorry I blew right by the most important part of your question. Went back and rebooted the Compute stick without a monitor and see the problem you describe. So it appears that the issue is how to set the screen resolution on the local machine (stick) when it doesn't have a monitor to detect. This doesn't seem to me to be related to the client used but more a local linux issue. Used to edit /etc/X11/xorg.config, I think Fedora is using Wayland and not sure how to go about this right now.

Yes I see a full display, but had in the past been restricted and don't now have the exact directions to correct.
This morning I powered it up locally and had a restricted local display, used the control panel > display settings to
apply 1920x1080 globally and the display changed to full screen.
Then went to the laptop and used nomachine to connect back to the compute stick and it also displayed 1920x1080.
I'll include a screen shots taken on the laptop indicating the appearance. Use the alt+ctrl+0 key combination and note the fit to window selection and the nomachine's display settings. If you can achieve full display locally then by playing with nomachine's setting should be able to get it remotely. They are very helpful to people asking questions in their forum if you get stuck.

Also running indi remote on the Compute Stick, the old one sold without operating system.
I could not get Ubuntu 32bit booted, but the 64 bit 16.04 version came up without issue and
it upgraded to 18.04 this week. A 12V battery powers a USB3 hub with a USB stick for local
storage and the hub powers the stick. I use it remotely over wireless from KStars and get
full screen GUI support running nomachine's NX server with good response. The hdmi isn't
normally used so I haven't noticed any problem's getting in with ssh or NX communication.

Have not had it outside yet, but not expecting the wifi range to be all that great.

tightvnc seems popluar, I run vnc4server, but I couldn't find any thing specific for your combination.
This is a bit off the wall, but this blog might be a resource for you.

He just got his nanopc-t4 & install lubuntu and last post had run into your dbus issue.
Could let him know the fix and ask him which vnc server he is using.

Is the basic setup as you think it is and getting through any firewall?
If you have something like telnet on the MAC client.
[tg@tcup]$ telnet obs 5905
Trying 192.168.1.108...
Connected to obs.
Escape character is '^]'.
RFB 003.008
Also some clients only need the last digit of the port #.

Any documentation on the EQ6-R mount?
A outline from the Losmandy Gemini controller doc
- The modeling information is stored in the controllers non-volatile memory.
- Powering on offers different startup options. Powering on for the first time or after a CMOS reset
only Cold Start is offered.
- Cold Start Required if was mount moved. Deletes any stored model & positional info. Requires
New location and time be entered.
- Warm Start Mount same position, perhaps clutches released, OTA moved. retains model but resets
position to CWD & polar orientation.
- Warm Restart Mount & OTA same. Modeling & position information retained, mount ready for use.

Tom Gibson replied to the topic 'Losing stars when guiding' in the forum. 4 months ago

Running on Fedora, these are the packages that got picked up yesterday evening.
Upgraded:
indi-gpsd-bleeding.x86_64 1.7.3-7.1
kstars-bleeding.x86_64 2.9.6-8.1
libapogee.x86_64 3.1-15.1
Did not see any change in the results, but the log captures guiding calibration.
Just to repeat, images are good without any guiding, The first attachment is a 2 minute exposure
unguided. After attempting pulse guiding 10 second exposures are streaked.
I could attempt installing PHD2 if that would help isolate.
