Same problem for me too :(

I'm not a CCDCiel user, but I'd guess that it is auto scaling the displayed image to as to make the image visible. Most of the time, astro images need to be stretched to see anything. Perhaps your other display apps don't auto stretch?

Well if you're at -96, ... then the value of 256 looks suspiciously like the max value of an 8 bit number rather than your longitude measured east of the prime meridian.

I believe the values it reports are all positive values, as if you measured your longitude east of Greenwich. For those of us located in North America, west of Greenwich, the values mean the same thing, e.g. -67 W is the same as 293 E.

This is more of a question than an answer... would the scheduler assist in restarting capture runs if autoguiding fails, through the aborted job management option?

Questions about what you've tried? I'm sure you probably have these covered...

Good focus - tested with a bahtinov mask?
Are the stars pin-point at 100% zoom with your exposure?
Did you try the (large scale and) small scale stellarsolver model alternatives?
Are you indexes now appropriate for this FOV?

Could you not accommodate for this limitation by adjusting the out step mulitple in the Focus Mechanics tab?

Using the debugger in QTCreator I noticed that after opening the FileOpen dialog, KStars seemed to be rendering the HiPS overlay (forever, more or less) when attempting to open a Fits Image. Hence the dialog somehow stalled without fully populating its elements. I turned off HiPS rendering and tried a File Open. It worked. After restarting KStars, I turned on the HiPS DSS Coloured overlay again and things seem to be working fine now. No hung file open dialog.
Confused, but happy.
I wasn't able to deduce exactly what the problem was.

Cheers

Hi,

Strange behaviour which I believe is a recent change, although to be honest, I don't know whether it's KStars or the UbuntuMate. The fits file open dialog in KStars does not fully open or populate.
Other software's file open dialogs are working correctly. Double clicking on a fits file in the OS GUI does launch KStars and correctly display the image.

Perhaps coincident with Jasem's various memory leaks update invent.kde.org/education/kstars/-/commit...516ed40b3445bf43dbdd
my KStars Build: 2022-03-12T13:23:17Z 3.5.8 Beta on Ubuntu Release 20.04.4 LTS (Focal Fossa) 64-bit Kernel Linux 4.9.277-122 aarch64
Bleeding Edge build (the subject of this error report) appears to be running well now.
Only tested via running a scheduler job using the simulators.

With a compile about 1/2 hour ago, during a scheduler test using the simulators, it survived all steps of starting up (track, focus,align, guide setup), but after the 1st downloaded image, it crashed, so perhaps you've found the culprit in the std:uniqueptr, but of course this is conjecture.

Thanks
