Been trying to figure this one out so I can use the dome in Ekos rather than the Sky X. I have to have the SkyX anyway because of the paramount, but having the dome outside of the control loop in my main software is a pain for automation. The issue I have noted with the driver is even with slaving enabled, I have to choose CCW or CW (or it lets me flag both) before the dome will move. This seems weird. I would assume behavior would be, motors enabled when slaving.

Anyone else experience this? Am I missing something? It just doesn't make sense to me. And in trying to automate everything it is making things more difficult. Im not even sure other software Ive used in the past has cw and ccw buttons, so Im not certain their function.
Thank you

Sorry guys, I don't have much to contribute on rotators. I have a nitecrawler, but I don't connect the rotator because I don't want to re-do flats but 1 or 2 times a year.

Id love to be able to select or center a spot on the sky chart, and do a slew and align in EKOS without first slewing in the mount sub menu, then going to EKOS align tab and then doing the align.

Not sure if this is the right place since it says it's wishlist for Indi. I can repost in EKOS.

Thanks

Thanks for sending this.. We've seen it on Linux also. But good to spread the word. Lots of confused people (myself included)

Jasem, doing this now. What does this do to the status of being in stable or beta branches? or future updates?

Thanks

Just circling back. Any idea when this is going to be live? Im on stellarmate x86-64. Stable. Still on 3.6.9 with your binary instead.

Im referring to choosing "indi" in the mount selection under ss7, and not using the "sky safari indi driver" on the host side. When you do this then the only option you have is to select your specific mount that is running as an indi driver.

Also as to using stellarmate app, I realized you can turn on the image layer where you can see the images on the skychart. Works nice for framing actually, so I was incorrect on that front.

heh, I thought I was losing my mind last night. Glad to hear it wasn't just me. (and that it is known and being fixed!)

stellarmate.com was down last night. If you are signed in to either the app for IO/Android or EKOS Live, it was affected. Back up now.

Compris. Vous n'aurez pas de kstars-bleeding, je ne pense pas si vous avez installé à partir du dépôt standard. Pour Indi spécifiquement, vous pouvez compiler à partir des sources :

github.com/indilib/indihttps://github.com/indilib/indi

en attendant.

Bonne chance. Au fait, je viens d'installer Ubuntu sur mon pi5 8 Go et c'était exactement comme un ordinateur de bureau ! Cependant, il utilise probablement plus de RAM. J'attends un adaptateur NVME pour le mien avant de l'installer, même si la mienne sera une tablette Linux personnalisée, pas pour l'astronomie :)

juste indien ? ou des kstars ?

J'essaie moi-même d'installer Bookworm et je rencontre également un problème. Il semble que les référentiels ne soient pas mis à jour pour bookworm. Pour l'instant, vous devez probablement essayer d'installer Ubuntu à partir de l'application Pi Imager, puis utiliser les instructions Ubuntu. Cela finira par fonctionner une fois que le dépôt astroberry sera mis à jour. Et je pense que Stellarmate OS sera également mis à jour pour Pi5/bookworm. Je ne pense pas que le problème soit spécifique à Pi5, mais plutôt à Bookworm. Encore une fois désolé pour la traduction de Google !

Ill try it on the indi driver for paramount tonight in ss7. I never used the ss indi driver in 6 because the paramount direct driver works fine. As far as SS7, it's pretty frustrating because it no longer works directly with the paramount driver that has worked in 6 and older for years. I opened a ticket on their forums stating I wanted to work like it did on previous releases or a refund. They did neither. The last time I checked my ticket is still open or closed due to (their) inactivity. 30USD in the toilet. Haven't been able to use it. I was past the google refund window so I couldn't go that route. Also they always nag for me to upgrade to 7 when I use 6. So I guess they will kill 6 eventually and make it non-workable. Which I completely get, but it's a "premium" phone app at that price.

Ive been demoing stellarmate app, but the sky chart is still really basic. Not very useful so far for framing, which is all I really need. But I need to dig in more. Kstars of course is fully featured in that regard. Kstars lite (android) seems to have gone to the grave. It says not compatible with my Pixel phone on android 14.
