Is this with SM 1.5.0 ?


Yes! 1.5.0

No, that's not that.
That's for backup/restore INDI config.
Updates - look at the top-right corner (when connected with a remote client) or bottom-right corner (when in RPI (VNC or monitor)).
There should be a round clock-looking icon.

Currently there are no updates.


Cool, but I hate to say it, but I don't see any "Check for Updates" or any "Update" on the StellarMate Desktop window when it pops.
I've looked around and nothing on the Bottom Right Left arrow or the Top Left 3 Line menu.


Ah! I think I see it (grayed out at the moment)... Clicking the 3-Line menu, top left Under "Diagnostics"

The 1.5.0 build posted on stellarmate.com 3-4 days ago SexTractor is preinstalled.
Initial/older build didn't have SexTractor preinstalled.

Finally, it's not clear that to use SExtractor on SM OS 1.5 we need to do the sudo apt commands. Can someone confirm this is for SM OS, or is this just for DIY installs?

1.5.0 seems to be the best SM release for RPI4 so far.
WiFi hotspot is finally working reliably (I don't really need it anymore but still it's a big improvement).
Only tried things indoors. Everything seems to be OK.
Tomorrow night will try outside.

A couple of questions:
-- What about the updates? The Package Updater says that everything is current. Do I update from the terminal? sudo apt install indi-full kstars-bleeding ? What about the nightlies?
-- How do I prevent KStars from starting automatically (in Ubuntu it was easy...)

Thanks!

Yes, I am still using this config.
Here's the cable: www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NIGO4NM

I was wondering, did you purchase a special cable to gang together enough amps to the C connector for Pi, or did you just make your own connector? I like the idea of using the charging ports from the powered hub if it works well as the cable management is clean. Are you still using this or did you move on to another config. Comments?

Cool! - thanks! Even though I used 3.4.0 from nightlies for a while I never noticed the Sextrator option. Will give it a try.

Just did bias frames with a Nikon DSLR through Ekos. Set the exposure time to 0.00025 (1/4000). Resulting nef images look good but exif shows exposure times of some random numbers around 11s. Weird.

Good point! on the exposure for bias frames being always at min of 0.000032. It does make sense.
So, can I use bias frames taken with the offset of 40 with the light frames taken at lower offsets?
Thanks!
