Hey all. How the hell do I go about setting temp compensation in ekos for Moonlite focuser? I can enable it but what do I put in the calibration tabs? Do I actually need to measure the temperature of something? Also how does EKOS use this info as no tab to say refocus every 1 degree etc?

Sorry i know we should supply logs but none were enabled, but needed to bring to your attention. I will enable logging as it will likely happen in the next few nights again. I should note that indi is on a raspberry pi4 using raspbian buster compiled from sources from only 4 days ago and ekos is on a remote computer using ubuntu ppa.

Latest Kstars - When mount fails to autofocuss in EKOS it hangs and seems to prevent a scheduled meridian flip from occurring. The result is scope keeps tracking until it hits the mount :( We need something that always prioritises the meridian flip over another module completing something first.

I tried the standard methods of resetting home...didn't work. However, I deleted all the .xml files under ~/.indi and it all reset itself and is working fine now. Not sure what went wrong but this is a fix.

Would altering the eqmod scope limits XML file (or other XML files) be a solution?

Just last night I had an issue that required me to undo clutches. After I went through the usual method to reset home position but had to purge data as couldn't get home set right.
The mount now thinks it's below horizon so won't allow the scope to slew, even though limits are not checked. Furthermore the eqmod config can't be saved or changed. It's like it's just locked everything and although it says unparked it won't even allow me to implement park, or change slew speeds etc.

Funny thing is that if I use different computers the same issue occurs! Yet if I connect hand controller to mount it works fine, and if I connect using synscan driver it appears to work ok (at least can park/unparked and manually move mount).
