Hi
Although I can't speak of the focuser, the last source where scheduler, guiding, capture and align worked and which I tested was: 7499206e70e30a65dc14d79057a5b0b195f031d8. end of Sept.
Unless you need anything more recent, checkout that comit? A good idea is to install the stable, but call call any subsequent source from the build folder.

Before and after crossing the meridian Sadr shown HA > 0


Hi
You have set the flip to happen 2º after the meridian. In both your examples, Sadr had already crossed the meridian but had not reached your 2º constraint.

If you want it to flip as soon as the HA comes zero, remove the constraint.

Before it crossed the meridian, it had a -.ve HA value.

you have that problem as well


Jo, everyone,
Sorry I didn't reply. Haze and full moon prevented any urge.
I'll report back with a log next session.

Hi Deesk, hy, everyone

Using EQMOD, I have 'reverse DEC on pier-side...', UN-checked.

@OP I only bin 2 when using an asi120 on an OAG @ 1200mm focal length where it is important to remove the backlash before calibration DEC. There is an option to bump the mount in DEC before calibration. Must have it set although using a 240mm focal length bin 1 guide telescope, it doesn't really matter.

HTH and clear skies,
Steve

Thanks Jo

Trying to decide if this affects me with a dslr
I run batches of 6 captures using the scheduler 'repeat for' say, 10 runs so as to obtain 60 captures with 'remember job progress' checked.
After the flip I suppose it will go back to repeat the current job of six captures on the other side of the meridian and then go onto the next batch of six?
Ahhgghh!!!

Looks as though I'm gonna have to sit by the telescope tonight. Ahhgghh!

Cheers and clear skies,
Steve

the scheduler did not continue the Capture sequence after the meridian flip


Hi Jo, everyone
So it overwrote the files that were already captured?

steve replied to the topic 'Problems with AZ-GTI mount and PHD2' in the forum. 4 weeks ago

Hi everyone
Guys, are we sure the azgti is reporting side of pier correctly?

@OP: (pointing south for now, there maybe different issues crossing the pole to the north) slew east of meridian:
indi_getprop *.TELESCOPE_PIER_SIDE.*

now slew west of meridian:
indi_getprop *.TELESCOPE_PIER_SIDE.*

What's the output of each command?
Cheers and clear skies,

Hi everyone

is there a short cut to rotating a camera FOV symbol other than:

Settings -> FOV symbols -> edit FOV symbols -> choose -> camera -> rotation?

Cheers and clear skies,

Hi everyone
kstars latest git.

Is it possible to prevent the screen from locking, as in never goes to sleep or blanks?? I've found the usual culprits, but must be missing something lower down.
TIA,

if Ekos reports the mount is aligned should the mount position be updated in KStars?

if anyone has any ideas


Hi

Of course, send the logs but...
Just one thing I did which produced the same result: on the guide tab, I had specified the primary telescope, rather than the guide telescope. Yeah, I know. DUH...

Maybe worth checking?
Cheers,
Steve
