Once you've burnt the 1.5.0 image to an SD card and have that card up and running in your device then open a terminal session and enter:

sudo apt update && sudo apt-get upgrade -y && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

to pull down the latest build

Nice script

I took a look at the script source and included an alternate menu dialog which seems to work to overcome the challenge you observed

Modified script attached here for reference

For reference:
I observed that there were five items that your script looks for to make copies of
In my v1.5.0 Stellarmate build these 5 items did not exist:

'/home/stellarmate/.local/share/kstars/mycitydb.sqlite': No such file or directory
'/home/stellarmate/.config/pluma*': No such file or directory
'/home/stellarmate/.config/session*': No such file or directory
'/home/stellarmate/.local/share/kstars/wishlist.obslist': No such file or directory
'/home/stellarmate/.config/caja*': No such file or directory

Otherwise the script does appear to work as advertised to copy and zip the Stellarmate files that it finds :)

Hi Wouter

For my use case, so far the only consistently reliable way I've found to reconnect the DSLR when the connection fails is as follows:

unplug camera from usb
power off the camera
power on the camera
restart the raspberry pi
replug camera into usb
