Hi Wouter,

but this is exactly what i´m talking about:-) I can´t play around with it, cause i can´t click on it, it just doesn´t change the pierside.

Hi Wouter,

i need to try it under the stars. But anyway, there must be a possibility to overwrite the east or west side of pier, this is at least the case in any ASCOM environment, but maybe this is different in indi. I don´t know, but would love to hear how other takahashi users experienced this.

Hi,

i mentioned it because it makes a difference in plate solving and "directions". If the Mount driver ist set to East or West, makes a difference cause, the Motors will possibly go into the wrong direction and GoTo fails.
Of course i know that almost each stacking software is able to stack flipped images, cause i´m doing that all the time:-)

Hi Radek,

yes, i thought about that already. Might work, although i can´t really trust it, because sometimes i change the rotation of my Camera to 180°. But i have to try it.
But i still think its either a misconception or a mistake by me, because in indilib connection its greyed out and all other tasks can be switched on and off. It also has this underscored capitals like E and W to toggle them East and West. Still not really trust it.

i will specify my question a bit more.

it seems like indi is automatically setting the pier side. Which might be good if you running an observatory with a fixed mounted Telescope and a fix parking position. But with mobile equipment i have to tell the Mount each night where it is pointing to, and which side of peer it is.
Maybe i´ve overlooked something, or looking at the wrong places, but maybe someone can tell me how i should handle this the best. My normal Workflow would be: Pointing the Camera and Mount to a certain position and sync it with my Planetarium Program, like in this case kstars. Then tell the Program if it is pointing west or pointing east.

Hi,

i cant switch the side of pier position in the Mount Settings. they do only appear when i´m already connected, but i can´t click on them. Where can i tell EKOS the right side of pier for a Takahashi Temma Mount?

Hello,

i think its a general problem that the Ipad does not behave like a mouse. I switched now to VNC Viewer and here you can choose between Mouse or Tablet functionality. That works quiet fine for me firstly.

Hi Radek,

yes, its only the slide menu (as far as i can see by now). OK this could be a go around. To strange that it works in Safari on my MacBook though.

Hi,

i´ve tried that already. And it doesnt help in all cases. I can for instance click on the little checkmark box saying autostart, but if i´d like to define for instance my own setup, i can´t choose and type in something. Its weird.

hmmm, but this is what i like so much about Astroberry, that i start the Raspi and can control it just from my device, with just opening a webbrowser.
Is thar (maybe) a problem with older Apple Software, or in general a Problem with Macs?

Hi,

ok i see, but how can i run the indi server if i connect directly to the PI via VNC?
Sorry, this Server/Client thing is relatively new to me.
Btw, it runs with almost no problems from my MacBook Pro.
