as you can see in my screenshots I set the "non guide dither pulse" to 9999ms, which is to long for real imaging. Bu using that I was able to check, if dithering is used. I found out, that it is really moving the mount between the captures and you can also find a log entry in scheduler log like "dither completed" (I do not remember the correct log entry).
But I found also out, that the dithering is not randomly to all directions, one direction was preferred. For that reason the object was moved outside the chip area after some captures. But (as I said) for real captures nearly 10s is to much!
I am using unguided capturing with my 10micron mount but activated non guide dither pulse.
During capture session I can see the "green circle" ( screenshot) .
I am actually faced with an interesting issue.
I am using KStars 3.3.9 with a 10Micron GM2000HPS.
Because my mount is connected with a GPS module, I decided to configure in general INDI Configuration, that Mount will update KStars Time and Location.
sorry for the stupid question above, but the problem was in front of the computer.
I will shorty describe, what I have done wrong and how it is configured now, probably it helps someone.
1. I created a profile containing only the mount and CCD (see picture 01_profile.png)
2. I started Ekos Driver and mount and CCD getting connected. And the Ekos windows is opened with all tabs for Setup, Scheduler, Mount, CCD, Focus, Align and Guide. (see picture 02_Ekos.png)
3. Then I go to CCD tab and configure the sequences. (03_CCD.png)
4. Then I changed to Guide Tab and I found, that my primary CCD is configured as guiding camera (and this confuses me) (04_Guide.png)
5. But this time I ignored this and opened the Options (lower right corner) for Guide. (05_configureGuide.png) Here I configured a very long "Non guide dither pulse" to see what happens.
6. Then I changed to Scheduler tab and configured my capture process. And here I did the next misconfiguration. I forgot to deactivate the guiding for every sequence (06_Schedule.png)
After setting this I was able to start the scheduler and the mount dithered between every picture.
yes the mount, which I want to run without guiding, supports guiding.
It is a 10micron GM2000HPS and I want to connect it via Ethernet.
first of all I wish all of you a Happy New Year.
I am a new user of INDI, KStars and Ekos and I want to configure my astro photography setup with short focal length without guiding (another guide scop or OAG).
I already checked the forum and I found, that there is an option "Non-Guide Dither Pulse", but how can I configure this and how it is working ?
In Ekos -> Options ... there is no possibility to configure guid options.
The only way how to activate the "Non-Guide Dither Pulse" option is, to configure and connect a Guider and than go to Ekos -> Guide Tab -> Options... Than it is possible to configure this option. But I don't want a guider.
So my question is: What is the correct way to configure and use dither without guiding.
1. Should I configure a guider simulator and connect this to have a chance to activate "Non-Guide Dither Pulse" ?
If yes, how should I handle this during a real photo sequence ? Should I remove the configured guide simulator ? Is the "Non-Guide Dither Pulse" still active ?
Or exists another way to configure that correctly ?
I am using KStars 3.3.9.
I hope I was able to describe the issue clearly.
Thank you for your support.
