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

Barry Carney created a new topic ' Focus based on temperature change' in the forum. 2 months ago

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.

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.
