You are using the wrong address to connect, you should be using “Stellarmate.local” in your browser address bar....

Would it not be possible to have something in place that stops multiple first posts, as I have sorted loads of these out in the last week, people submitting there first post and then when it does not show right away submitting it again and again, on some I have deleted two, three and  four of the same posts....from the same person...one day there were 12 unapproved posts, and from only four different people.....go figure....

Yes I too have just tried on the very latest AB, and it works fine...configured my wifi over the hotspot, , rebooted and now connected to my home wifi, so I stand corrected....in which case the OP has an issue with the install...as it does work fine...

Hello,
i use the EQ8 in the same way, with a side by side set up, but I just moved the DEC housing round by 90 degrees on the mount, then no offset is needed, it’s really simple just remove the saddle and then the four bolts holding the Dec clutch housing, then turn the housing with clutch released by 90 degrees and put the bolts and saddle back.....simples....saves any issue with offsets....

This is correct and has always been this way, you have to connect with a network cable to get the RPI to connect to your own home wifi, this has to be done just once, then all good, if you try and switch to home wifi from using the hotspot, it will not work as it will disconnect too soon, this has always been like this, on Astroberry and Stellarmate....

I would say your issue is due to using the 2.4ghz wifi connection, this is a known issue when using that and the USB 3.0 ports...so change the RPI to use the 5ghz wifi and also to Chanel 44 this should solve the issues......smile.png

I have the lodestar x2 on the very latest Indi, with no issues at all...
you seem to make a lot of posts about how you can go back to a previous version because something does not work on the latest version, have you maybe thought if it’s all working ok, maybe don’t update, and leave as it, if it ain’t broke, why try and fix it....???
Maybe then you will have less issues......just a thought...

However, I CAN connect easily with the mount using the INDIGO server. However, I cannot figure out how to use the INDIGO server with EKOS. I tried choosing 'External' rather than 'Internal' and first starting the INDIGO server and starting the connection to the mount within INDIGO which works fine (including my ZWO guide camera) but when I then go into EKOS (while INDIGO is still running) and try to start within KStars (having chosen the 'external' rather than 'internal' INDI), KStars crashes. Help is GREATLY appreciated!! 


this is the INdI forum and not the indigo one....!!

I have just done a full terminal update and everything has worked fine and re started, but the desktop updater does not work at all....but then it never has, not sure if this has been fixed or not...?
