Now I've installed indi-allsky on Ubuntu 20.04.4, installation went fine but for some reason I had to install opencv manually.
Trying to connect to localhost with Firefox it asks for User/Password.. ?? I tried using my accounts but it didn't accept my credentials, so what credentials do I suppose to use ??

Markku created a new topic ' KStars crash...' in the forum. 2 months ago

Hi,

Trying to run for first time using KStars version 3.5.7, Build: 2022-03-04T10:42:19Z but when trying to take a image with SXVR-H9 KStars just crash :( everything else seems to work, noticed that a image using the LodestarX2 within the guiderwindow  in Ekos does not crash but when the fitsviewer comes up then KStars just dies.

Everything is up to date both Ubuntu, KStars and also the drivers.

Runing in gdb this is the result:

Thread 1 "kstars" received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

So what do I do now ??

Markku created a new topic ' DATE-OBS keyword in fits header..' in the forum. 7 months ago

Hi forum,

For now the keyword looks like this when taking long exposures: DATE-OBS= '2021-11-05T22:02:00.034' / 2021-11-05T22:02:00.034
I guess the first time and date is when the exposure starts, so could we have the second part showing when the exposure is finished ? the above data is taken from a 120 second exposure.

I ran autofocus to to get new focus settings for a lower temperature, but the old values from previous autofocus keeps coming up even if the new values are set ??
Also the new values is filled in the wrong field, they should be in "Offset" but gets to the "Flat focus position" instead for some reason.
I moved the new values to their correct places but the old values is what the focuser uses anyway.

Ok, thank you for answering Jasem.

Hi forum,

I'm just wondering if the offset for filters after autofocus should be filled in or are they needed at all ?
It seems that the offsets are not filled in after running autofocus, as I remember the numbers where there in previous versions but not sure about that.
Now I'm using KStars 3.3.3 Stable. I supply image from the "userdb.sqlite"

Hi,

I tried using a 1,5 Barlow on my 300 scope long time ago but it was not possible to resolve the images so I gave up, have you tried to send the image to astrometry.net for resolving ??

Hi all,

I wish the Rapid guide was enabled and usable, i'ts a great feature.

Hi,

This is a tricky one but my guess is that the wobbly line is a geostationary (TV broadcast) satellite, the stars are moving but the satellite is not, and the cause of the line is wobbly is because of the guiding.

Hi,

I just came across this link : www.himax.com.tw/products/electrically-tunable-focusing-lenses/
Maybe you can use the ESP32 for a new kind of focusing ??
Just a thought.

Hi,

Maybe you can use a sms utility to send a message from your observatory : smstools3.kekekasvi.com
I use it as a alarm if the temperature in the server hall gets too high or there is a power failure, I can also send a sms to a server and ask it so send back some status information to me.
Of course you need a USBstick GSM modem and a sim card but it can be worth it.
