Hi NOU, everyone

I'm hopeless with git. A question which comes up quite often is how to roll back to a previous version.

Using your scripts, would it be possible to publish the steps we would take to install a previous version of INDI/kstars?
e.g. Let's say I have kstars 3.6.9 installed and wish to revert to kstars 3.6.8.

Cheers and clear skies,
Steve

I am trying to make both HDMI/vnc available

Hi
Not sure about on a pi, but on a mini pc, this gives both dummy resolution for vnc and output to a physical screen:

You can change resolution to any one of the dummy resolutions so long as your physical screen can handle it. 1600x900:50Hz seems to work with most modern screens.

Hi
PHD2 has a 'guiding assistant' which estimates the seeing and goes on to recommend different settings e.g. for minimum guiding pulses in RA and DEC.
I wonder if something similar could be made available with the EKOS internal guider?

Hi
Cable changed for a USB2 to the hub of an EQ8r.
The MF was fine. To help debug future issuses, could anyone tell me if this is a correct/typical/good flip?
The flip starts here:

I have attached the full log. Anything suspect?

Thanks Jasem. Here's hoping.
Question if I may? Which cable type do you use with your veTEC?
TIA
