Hi,
same case here ; RPI4 with Pegasus UPB, eqmod, and 3 zwo recognized but not connected ; SM and kstars just updated on 3.4

I have changed the port, try a new config with autoscan (all ok) but my cams still not connected.


I tried by SM webmanager and kstars on my PC (Windows 3.9) ; exactly the same...no cams connected :(


All worked fine before the update.

Hi Hy,
as Chris said, my Celestron can have BL but especially the problem of the flip mirror when you change direction for focusing. This is the reason why I can not do autofocus, but maybe I do it wrong especially over the duration of the subs?

Merry Christmas to all !

Frank replied to the topic 'Best Polar alignment method ?' in the forum. 1 year ago

good point.
I have enough field of view to compare the two methods.
A priori, the method from the Polemaster should be the best, but what if the telescope is not perfectly aligned on the mount (I find that the plate of the eq6r pro is not perfect and even for the vixen bar of the C8 ... a little too much flexion I find).
if the sky is discovered a little on the side of Angouleme, I will try tonight ;)

Frank created a new topic ' Best Polar method ?' in the forum. 1 year ago

Hello,
I ask myself a question for polar alignment:

I have a Polemaster camera on my skywatcher eq6r pro mount, a Celestron C8 and either my Asi 294mc pro in hyperstar mode or in the focus of the telescope.

my question : is it better to do the polar alignment via ekos from the Polemaster (so directly on the mount) or go through my asi 294 ?

Frank created a new topic ' New option Meridian flip issu in Mount tab / Kstars' in the forum. 1 year ago

Hi,
Sorry for my bad english :(
There is a great option in the new kstars 3.1 or in the nighty build 3.1.1 : the meridian flip option in the mount tab !
But there is a but.
When i check the box and choose for example ha > 0.01 and then when I point the Mount at any object (whatever the side), in the Mount tab, the status of the option changes to "active " with a mention like "processing meridian flip" and a small Wheel turrns ans turns but nothing happens (I specify that the mount is not at all at the point of passage of the Meridien). So, impossible to take a picture because there is blocking in the tab of the camera (again, a small Wheel turn with the mention meridian flip).
And this continues even if I park the mount. Unchecking the option in the Mount tab does not change anything
The only way to get back to normal is to disconnect and then close Indi and then reconnect.

My system : A tinkerboard (ubuntu 18.04 Bionic) where al my system is connected : EQ6R PRO via EQMod, Pegasus UPB and focuscub, Polemaster camera and 2 zwo.
