Markku created a new topic ' Filterwheel offsets after autofocus...' in the forum. yesterday

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,

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.

It's happening for me too using KStars Version 3.5.2 Stable, I looked at the FITS header in the viewer and it did look good but saving the image results in a error anyway.




I hope the logfile helps.

Hi,

KStars Version 3.5.2 Stable, Build: 2021-03-01T11:47:36Z have some problems, looking at the ppa it looks like not all drivers have been build against the new library and therefore not updated with apt update/upgrade, maybe I'm wrong ?

This is the errors I get starting EQMod and SX drivers.

indi_eqmod_telescope --> indi_eqmod_telescope: symbol lookup error: indi_eqmod_telescope: undefined symbol: _ZN4INDI10BaseDevice11isConnectedEv
indi_sx_ccdindi_sx_ccd --> symbol lookup error: indi_sx_ccd: undefined symbol: _ZThn5128_N4INDI3CCD13GuideCompleteE12INDI_EQ_AXIS
