Answereed my own question. it changes because its JNOW. However, it is still the correct coordinates. Can anyone confirm I am right?? I just had to also change my PA(rotation) angle and its framed exactly how I want!

So really quickly. I have input coordinates from telescopius for the framing of the object. Once I input the details and I get to plate solving, the coordinates change. It seems like specifically only in declination for some reason. I am not exactly sure why. See screenshots. Thanks!

Absolutely no idea what I did, but its working now! I did nothing, must have been a hiccup, maybe low power or wifi issues. Who knows. Ill report back again if anything else happens.

Ive tried pretty much everything I could find online. I tried to reset to defaults. Turn off use scale and position. Chnage the SEP profile. Binning etc.

Log below, not sure if it is the correct one.

Thanks for the help in advance!

Just wanted to know how well a Nexdome works with Indi/Ekos. Interested in purchasing one, but just want to make sure It’s supported here. Looks like they moved to a beaver system?

Any info would help, just gathering ideas for now. Thanks!!

HI Chris,

I would do a clean install if you can. Its not worth fussing with it, and I am not honestly sure what I did to set it off the first time. If you need any assistance feel free to message me, this thread is kinda old. Thanks

Hey! What's your all sky camera setup? Was looking to make one.

I am not too sure what is going on. I have not touched anything at all. However, every time I go out platesolving is taking forever. Currently it takes about 2 - 3 minutes to solve a picture. This is all with using stellar solver. I also tried to turn of use scale and location. No difference. I can try to pull logs but I am not too sure that will help. 

Thanks!

Still having issues after 2 star alignment. No movement from the mount at all. I tried to access logs but it was not working. Next time I am out I will figure out the log issues with him, 

One issue we did get however was an error. 

[ERROR] Write Error: Network is unreachable 

also, is is possible to connect to the celestron mount with the an rj45 cable instead of the hand controller?

By alignment, do you mean 2 star alignment? We did not do this, I am assuming this is needed hen before successfully connecting to the mount? Ill get the logs turned on as well.

So,

I am trying to help my friend start using Kstars/Ekos. 

We were having some issues though with the mount. The mount was plugged in through the hand controller and we selected the "NexStar" driver. This did connect to the mount, but it seems that the mount would NOT receive any commands. We could not slew, guide or anything at all. 

How are we supposed to connect? Is the hand controller okay, or should we get a RJ45 to USB connector instead? Does the port need to be set by us? Is there a setting on the control that needs to be chosen? 

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

What I am trying to do is get an "all sky" camera on my mount for the imaging session. So I would be looking at running my regular imaging mount and guide camera with kstars/ekos. I am then wondering if it would be possible for me to use some additional capture software that is different from kstars/ekos to capture on my all sky camera. 

Thanks
