OK thanks. Simple as that. Just a regular USB cable I take it?

Did you get an answer to this question? I’m interested because I’m thinking of buying this mount.

I am seriously thinking of buying a Rainbow Astro RST-135 Mount for portable use. Eventually I hope to get a StellarMate or similar to control the mount.

However, just to try things out initially can I connect my MacBook running KStars/EKOS/INDI directly to an RST-145 over cable as I do now to control my EQ-AZ6-GT?

Wvreeven - hello, thanks for that suggestion. I'd discovered that popup already and had tried it using my iPad mirroring my macbook's screen. It works in a kind of fashion. A bit unresponsive, but that's probably down to the connection between my ipad and the Mac.

OK. Thanks. At least that answers the problem. :-) Pity I didn't post the question here first. I'd have saved myself several hours of messing about.

That means I have got to work out a way of being able to adjust the mount at the scope since my MacBook is 5 metres away in my warm room.

Anyway, thanks again.

Hello! I'm a KStars/EKOS/INDI newbie (1 week) so please bear with my stupid questions!

I am trying out KStars on my MacBook. I want to see if I can use it to run my equipment instead of using EQMOD + Cartes du Ciel + PHD2 + EOS BackYard running in Windows7 in a virtual machine on my MacBook.

So far so good. It's been a bit of a steep learning curve. Nevertheless I've successfully got KStars controlling my mount. It also works with my Canon 450D and my guide camera.

The specific problem I'm having is getting KStars/EKOS/INDI to work with the gamepad I use to control the mount at the telescope.

I understand I have to connect the gamepad to the mount in the Device Manager as described here: indilib.org/support/tutorials/135-contro...ools-menu-gt-devices

When I do this I get the error message: " ... make sure the package that provides the indi_joystick binary is installed."

Any suggestions how I do this?
