I have an CGX and can confirm that your option 1 (USB mount) doesn't work for me. I always use the Hand Controller interface with KStars.

Also, although it's probably just me, I find that the Celestron all-star polar alignment works for me whereas the KStars polar alignment doesn't provide as close a polar alignment. For me, they differ significantly.

Are you guiding at a high sampling rate? With that scale, I wonder what the duration of each oscillation is?

Thanks Hy, I've updated the README.md file to highlight this dependency / difference in comparison to the standard install.

Hi,

That's unexpected. On my UbuntuMate 20.0.4 machine, I didn't have to run the script as root and /usr/share/kstars/ contains TZrules.dat
The /usr/local folder on this machine is owned by root, so I suspect you might would have to execute the script with a sudo to be able create things in that folder. The default ~ install probably? avoids this.

If you didn't already have a stable install of KStars on your machine perhaps that's why TZrules.dat is missing?  I'm just guessing here.

Sorry for adding to the complexities of a simple install.

Cheers
 Jerry

OK, thanks for reporting this. I may have fixed this during your compile run.

In addition, a subsequent update also set the -j3 compile option to be configured via a script variable.

yes, as described below by Grimaldi, it depends on the machine. On my 4G Odroid, with 2 G zram, there are a couple of groups of files which won't compile in parallel in the build with -j4, but everything compiles with -j3 for me.

OK, thanks. I think I've added those just now.

If I remember correctly, I used ApplePiBaker (on OS X) to make a backup of the SD card as a image/or zip file on the mac and then ran it again to copy from the backup and install on the SSD (wiping it out completely is part of the process). I plugged in the SSD into the RPi4, removed the SD card, and powered the RPi4 up.

There is equivalent software on Windows, but I've forgotten the name.

Cheers
