Hey Jasem, unfortunately, I sold my CGX when I upgraded to a CEM120, so I won't be able to test for you. Feel free to take any code from my indi_celestron_cgx driver as well. The reason it hasn't been updated is the same. I sold the mount.

I'm a big fan of Astro Live Stacker als-app.org/ for live stacking. For full image processing, I use PixInsight.

You will need to have some server running locally. Either my ekos-web project, or I believe Stellarmate make come with an offline server. Without one of those, offline mode will not work.

Yes, I still run it with the latest stable version of KStars. The best way to run it is to use Docker.

docker pull rickbassham/ekos-web:latest
docker run -p 3000:3000 -it rickbassham/ekos-web:latest

This should be run on the same machine that KStars/Ekos is running.

I have a CEM120 and never use the hand controller for anything after setting the meridian flip correctly.

In the focus module, click the icon next to the filter, and check the "Auto Focus" checkbox next to each filter.

I had the same problem and ended up switching to use the TCP connection method and connecting the mount via ethernet. This has been rock solid for me.

They are named differently. In fact, one is a CEM120 and the other is an HDX110 using the EQ Mod driver.

Sorry, didn't grab them this time. But I've narrowed down the issue. I don't think it is necessarily in the Alignment module. I've got a complex setup with two people sharing a single observatory. When we both connect to the remote drivers that run the roof, gps, weather and watchdog, we get the issue, but when only one of us connects to those everything works fine.

Pier A has a Raspberry Pi running ubuntu 20.04, and latest stable indi drivers and indi web manager.
Pier B has a NUC running Xubuntu 20.04, latest stable KStars and indi.
Common Computer is a Raspberry Pi running Raspberry Pi OS Lite, and latest indi drivers and indi web manager from the astroberry repo. This runs the GPSD, OpenWeatherMap, Weather Meta, WatchDog and my own Roof driver.
Desktop A runs Xubuntu 20.04, KStars 3.5.3 and indi (not sure of version right now).

If both Desktop A KStars and the NUC on Pier B KStars connect to the running drivers on the Common Computer, I'm able to reproduce the problem. I'm now able to work around the issue while I do some more debugging. Just a hunch, but it feels like something is getting lost with multiple clients talking to drivers that want to snoop on a single telescope.
