how I can correct the mount misalignment


Hi
Go back to basics?

Turn off the mount and physically set RA and DEC level. Use a bubble level. Whilst you're there, zero the setting circles then make sure that the park command -from anywhere- also zeros the circles. Finish every session by parking the mount.

Connect the mount, Clear the mount model for good measure then polar align.

Cheers and HTH.

Hi
Yes. AFAIK, a single dark frame introduces more noise. Unless you're prepared to be at the camera all night in case EKOS asks you to cover the telescope to take a new frame, go without and get cleaner guide frames anyway; win:win.
Just my WFM and €0.02.

Hi everyone

At around 03:11, align makes 20 attempts to hit the target, but fails.
It requires manual intervention (mount tab: reset model) to cure.

Could anyone tell me why it fails or give me a clue as to what I have wrong? Any/all input most gratefully received.

Hi
It's the same on all monitors I've tried; laptops and a -€90 so probably not 4k- 24" Philips. 4k I'm not sure, but it seems to display the same the same at all resolutions.

I compiled everything from source.


WFM:
Don't include any source built stuff. Simply install the stable indi and kstars update from Jasem's ppa and run the stable version.

I think the problem is in the git. NOT the stable. Maybe start a new thread with the crash when building the git? It may get more attention that way.

Reinstalled and wiggled cables. In sockets. Now all is well.
I apologise for the noise.
Cheers, Steve
