Thanks for all the work that has gone into getting this running (just writing out the install instructions must have been a pain)! Mine seems to be working in simulator mode. It's one of the reasons I haven't done any planets since getting on SM. Now for a clear night... been a terrible year for it.

The Bathinov Mask Assistant is in operation!    Oh wow!   I'll have to look for it!

Right now I do this (a link to my post in this thread):  How I use the Bathinov Mask

After yesterday's update (Monday the 29th)... I'm getting fairly long load times.   2.5 minutes.  I know not terrible, but about 2 minutes longer than before.

Is anything going on?   I even get a new error message window I've never seen before.

Could it be done on the Mount module... where the existing flip and other timers are?

Could we have a timed re-center option?   
I've been out of imagining for a while... weather and a new puppy.   But I see the "creep" is still there.  After an hour or so, my image is no longer centered.

Use the same code as the meridian flip, minus the flip.   Yeah, I know, easy for me to say.

Another use might be if you have clouds that pass by and you're not imagining for 30+ minutes and the timer check back in and by that time the clouds have cleared an the re-center option gets to going again.

Not saying this is a feature (and sorry it messed up for you), but boy I would love a feature like this!

After the flip restart from the top of the queue. The way I do it is... by adding more items in the queue than I think I'll need. I don't use the Scheduler and maybe if I did it would help.
And since I don't have total faith in the flip or auto-park, I check-in on the progress through the night (it's helped many times). Helps when your older and up many times during the night :whistle:

Just a thought... is there a config file that tells EKOS where to open the main dialog window? And if so, maybe I can edit it to open the window a bit lower on the screen (not blocking the toolbar).

My Skywatcher EQ-6R is also failing telling me that I have a backlash issue too... failing after 20+ iterations.

I'll give these fixes a try tonight (or the next clear night).

Can we get an option to set the window position where we left it? Mainly the EKOS window is the issue.

Example: Toggling EKOS on/off the EKOS window will always return to a default location. Covering the Command Toolbar.

Normally not a big deal on the PC (even though it's still a click and drag effort). On the iphone or tablet, I have to unclick Move Viewport in VNC, click and drag the window, then click Viewport VNC again. It's a whole deal.

If you are referring the default PW that comes with SM? Can we change the length to something as short as the default? I have to type it in so many times, the required length is just nuts.
