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.

Pick one of those for the usb c cable

Very interesting. I'm currently using a USB-A type supply (only 2.4 A), simply because I was worried that if I bought a USB-C supply it might not like the Pi and supply no power or limit to low current mode.

I have had a couple of times where the Pi has stopped responding then found the red power led is off which seems to suggest low power supply.

I've only been able to test it indoors as well but so far it seems much faster than 1.4.4 and 1.4.5, both in starting up and general use. I'm running everything on the Pi at 1920x1080 and VNC in from a laptop.

I think its a known bug in polar alignment. If your PA error gets bigger after polar alignment then you have to put the circle on the star, not the end of the line (opposite of what you are supposed to do) I always do it this way and 9 times out of 10 it works.

Tried again last night using indi camera instead of asi camera in PHD2 configuration. It was maybe a bit quicker but still slower than in 1.4.4.
