The setting you need to change is focuser speed. I have a moonlite focuser, and it has to be set to 100% speed or it does exactly what you’re describing. Anything less, even 80-90% don’t work well with a moonlite. Other speeds might be appropriate for different focuser, but the moonlite needs 100% speed.

I can supply logs for the PowerBox V2 as I have that. It reports temp and dew point, but not atmospheric pressure. So I have the MBox connected for weather information in MountWizard. I will have the mount out tonight, so I'll try to capture a log.

This is nice, I've tested it with my MBox Meteostaiton. The MBox software displays all sensors in a single graph. Is this possible? Then have a check box next to each thing being graphed to turn them on or off. I love this tab, but hate that dome (especially if you don't have one) takes up such a large spot. What if weather took up the top 2/3 and dome was in a line across the bottom 1/3?

I worked with Michel to get V4 running on the Mac. MW3 release wouldn't launch on the newest OS. So he helped me install and get it going. I would imagine he's going to release it soon, but I believe he's out of town right now. It took some modifications to get it running, and he's been looking at my logs and trouble shooting the issues as they come up.

This just started happening with mine. It did not seem to be happening in 3.3.6, but then I installed 3.3.7 to test it on my Mac. No messages were showing, then I loaded MountWizard4 and suddenly they started popping up. I quit MW4, and EKOS/KStars, and relaunched only KStars/EKOS and the messages keep appearing. I turned off logging as suggested above and they went away. So maybe that will add something to the puzzle.

Looks like that fixed it. All drivers now load.

This is what I got from amazon. SanDisk SDCZ880-128G-G46 Extreme PRO 128GB USB 3.1 Solid State Flash Drive

It was about $43.

Rob, I connected all equipment, and started EKOS. The ZWO drivers for both the cameras and EFW crash immediately. I logged the events.

I've been able to connect to a Mac SMB share from the Stellarmate to copy things over the network. And while I can see and even VNC into the Stellarmate, I can't get a local disk to mount on my Mac.

But when connecting to my Mac over SMB and copying files that way, I find it's too slow anyhow to be of much use, and end up copying them to a thumb drive instead. I ended up purchasing an SSD thumb drive for like $50, and I set EKOS to write to the thumb drive instead of the internal drive. This makes it as simple as pulling it out, and sticking it into my desktop.

Wow, OK, I had no idea you could do this. I've been using Ekos for probably two years and never pressed that button. Haha. Probably my previous mounts didn't support it.

Ok, so if you can make a mount model from within EKOS, what settings do you want for your mount. I had a few folks on Cloudy Nights insist that the Mount always update Ekos. Should it be the reverse for this? Or does that not matter when sync'ing alignment points? What do your mount settings look like in the mount driver? Are you using the default settings?

Cool, I missed that before. I’ll take a look.

mpfjr wrote: This is actually not the case. 10Micron has updated firmware since then and now it just takes the first three points as base points. You can just make the model in Ekos lets say 20 points and 3 of them are base points and 17 are refine points. As long as they are all spread over the sky there is no problem.

There is a bug though that I am trying to get a fix for. Look at this thread. indilib.org/forum/mounts/5180-alignment-...slewing.html?start=0


What are the steps you take to do this? Are you only using the alignment tab in EKOS? What settings did you use for your mount to sync the points?

Screenshots of your settings could be helpful if it’s easier than describing it.
