Hi Jasem,
I guess i will have to "eat humble pie" .
I found the problem was simply that the mount limits were not set!
I set Min Alt to 0 and Max Alt to 90 and now all is working .
Thanks for your help. I am now confident when i install the old mount onto the pier it will work fine.

Regards,
Bruce

Thanks Jasem,

OK,
I understand how to use the Logs now.
Here is my procedure and attached Log:

- I set up the Log to record:
EKOS
indi
Mount
Alignment

and

DRIVERS
Mount

- restart Kstars
- connect devices (in Ekos)
- searched for Acrux in Mount control Tab
- found Acrux
- hit GOTO
-returned: Status ERROR then back to IDLE

- seached for Gcrux in Kstars Planetarium
- centered Gcrux
- tried to slew to Gcrux via right mouse context menu GOTO
- returned ERROR slew failed

I hope this is enough to help narrow done the issue.
Anything more, i will be glad to help
Thanks for you efforts

Bruce

The last few hours i have spent trying to get the mount to move to a selected target..... Nothing happens. .....Except the mount control gives a "Status: Error'

The only way i can move the mount, is by using the arrow buttons in the "mount control".

Kstar sees the scope move when this is done.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Having problems controlling an Lx200 classic from kstars/ekos.

- using the Meade Classic driver
- mount connects ok
- can manually slew from "mount control tab" arrow buttons
- mount will not slew to target when the target is selected thru "Kstars" or directly using the" mount control seach"

Any thoughts please.

Bruce
(it seems that everything works now except the Mount!)

WELL!
I revisited the code you suggested earlier that didn't work
This time around it worked!!!
...........so happy
So Ben I guess you can I tested the code from my pc.
Will this change be made available to normal driver download?
You have been most helpful, thank you.
If I can help in any way ie testing etc., I would be pleased if i could help.

Here is your code i ran in terminal to get the dsi connecting:

Hi Ben,
thanks for your help again.
I have looked at your code updates.
As i think i understand, you are now looking for the camera name or the camera id string?
It will be fantastic if the DIS can be used within Kstars for Photomerty and a bit of AP.
i feel we almost have it sorted.
Bruce
