I've found that the Package Updater finds no updates most of the time but if I update from the terminal it finds updates

I did an update yesterday using the Stellarmate updater tool and tonight when doing a polar alignment it's not working. I started with around 15' error, then the next iteration was again around 15' but the opposite direction, then again the next was still around the same error in the opposite direction again. In the end I cut my losses and just moved the star half the distance indicated by the vector and ended up with around 6' error.

I've had problems before but that's when the direction of the vector changes and then each iteration the error gets worse. This time the error stays about the same but fluctuates around the center.

I've checked the Kstars version and it is 3.5.0 beta. Build 2020-08-29TO2:41:24Z. Im actually surprised to see its beta as I though I was only ever downloading stable releases when updating.

Any ideas or tips?

I'm only running the stable version but I'll have a look for that log file it should be very handy.

After updating the software on the Pi I notice that the focus module in EKOS now has an option to re-focus based on delta T. Has anyone played with this yet?

I know my EAF has a temperature sensor but have never bothered to monitor the temperature change over the course of an imaging session. Is there some way to plot/trend the temperature? Next session I will have to keep an eye on it.

I've had the same problem with the button disappearing too, but it happened for me a couple of weeks ago.

Are you running indi server on a Rapberry Pi? If so you might have to look on there for the configuration file to delete.

Did you figure out the inconsistency of the aberations when changing binning? I tried changing from 1x1 to 2x2 last night and my guiding apparently improved tremendously but I'm wondering if the scaling is not changing automatically when binning is changed?

I was having a similar issue after I had the EAF connected to my laptop to reset the zero position. I found by deleting the EAF configuration files in the indi directory on the Pi it solved the problem

Thanks for posting this. I was having the same problem but never got around to asking. I had no idea there was a setting in INDI Control Panel to change it.

I tried it for the first time last night in the field. It seems to run OK except for when running PHD2. When running PHD2 everything slows down, the same problem I had in 1.4.5.
