Quick update.
Still not sure of what happened but suspect it as a possible Indi driver issue. Again I'm running Ubuntu 18.04. I have been installing from ppa:mutlaqja/ppa. I know I had just recently had updates from Ubuntu and suspect they "upgraded" Kstars and Indie for me. I removed any trace of Kstars and Indi from my computer then did a fresh install from the repository IE kstars-bleeding and indi-full and gsc. It's now back to normal Onstep mount is working and both Zwo cameras! Needless to say I'll be checking out the proposed updates before pushing go from now on!

Thanks for the help!

Hi all,
Went out tonight to use my observatory and for some reason unknown to me Indi recognizes my 2 ZWO cameras but won't connect to them. I run Kstars with Ekos on Ubuntu 18.04 and up to tonight everything was working flawlessly. The ASICAP program can see and access both my ASI178 and ASI120. PHD2 can see the ASI120 I use for guiding so USB is working and is connected to the computer. . I suspect an upgrade happened but can't really figure it out. I removed and installed the latest greatest version off of Indilib.org but the cameras stayed broken.

Any ideas?

Thanks!!!!

Thanks Chris, can't believe I missed that. The derivative setting is grayed out though, I assume I can enable it?
Thanks again

Hello everyone,
Running Ekos.
Indi control panel shows 2.22g for firmware number.
My declination axis seems to oscillate + and - around the zero on the drift scale. Max swing around 5 arcseconds.
I'm thinking that I should fine tune the pid parameters to see if I can stabilize it.

Is this correct and if so where can I change the parameters. I've looked at every tab and menu I can find and am at a loss of what to exactly do.
I might add that the mount is a 1980's vintage C8 fork mount. I've pulled the 110 volt motor out and replace the RA with a stepper motor and mounted a dec stepper to control the declination axis. Using Onstep for control. So I have no manufacture information on configuring the mount and recommended guide rate etc.

Thanks in advance,
Wayne Hilliard
