Additional info:
In 2017, the user timsdeepsky fixed (i think) the same problem. This was his answer:

This I resolved by purging Kstars bleeding, and then reinstalling Kstars bleeding....It just started working perfectly after that....

He didn't use a windows computer, I do, and frankly, I don't know what this solution means. Can someone help me with this answer?

Thanks Sebastiaan

Hi,

I have my LX90 connected through the autostar RJ10-connection to my raspberry USB, together with my canon eos and my Inova. Until a few days ago all 3 devices connected perfectly, but now the LX90 doesn't connect
If I try to communicate with them from my windows 10 computer (i have installed the latest version of KSTARS), it connects perfectly with the canon and the Inova, but not my Meade LX90 and I get: "lx90 is disconnected"

The logfile is:

Hi Wouter,

I use a windows 10 64bit operated Lenovo ideacentre. The LX90 is connected by the USB port of a raspberry pi and I make a Wifi connection to the raspberry. The weird thing is: it just happened after it worked before. I have checked all the usb ports on the raspberry by connecting a different device (Inova): they all work and both aux-ports on the LX90 work too (i tested the laser dot of the smartfinder in both aux-ports).
If I unplugg the USB of the LX90 from the raspberry, I get a different error message, so I find it hard to believe the cable is broken. Unfortunately, I cannot try another cable, I only have one.

Gr Sebastiaan

Hello,
I'm a newbie with this and still experimenting, but after a few successful connections, all of a sudden, the lx90 couldn't connect to the computer. I have screenshots added. The strange part is, my Canon and Inova do still connect.
Can anyone tell me what might have happened?
