I actually was testing using the client on windows. After I thought about it I realized I needed to test with a client running on the rpi. It looks like some of the settings are now saving. I’m not getting the same error on the client on rpi as I was on Windows.

I’m on the nightly build. And I can’t save the config. What XML file are you referring to? Can you let me know where it’s located?

I've been using a Altair Hypercam 224c as a guide camera. I have never been able to get the camera settings to save. I normally just go in an change the 2-3 settings each session. When I try to Save, nothing happens. But I do get messages when I select Default, Load, or Purge.2021-04-13T01:20:52: [INFO] Configuration file successfully purged.2021-04-13T01:20:46: [INFO] Error loading default configuraiton. message requires 'name' attribute2021-04-13T01:20:46: [INFO] Loading device configuration...2021-04-13T01:20:40: [INFO] No previous configuration found.

I’ve not been testing the new builds of the aux driver. It was not focused on EQ mounts originally. They have been trying to update it. But last I tried it was still not usable. And I’ve not had to time. Check the new thread out below.

Yes, I save the config. Interesting that my options are quite different. I guess this depends on the camera itself. But I'd like to control the log level and I don't have those settings to enable.

Not sure if this has anything to do with my bad guiding...

I don't believe that I changed the settings. But it's possible? Below are my settings.



I'm beginning to think this might be an issue with my guide camera. I notice that the settings are never saved when I restart EKOS and the gain is always set to low. I always increase the gain before I guide.

Fast is a different algorithm that you can use for guiding. Multi star seems to be the default lately. You can switch it underneath the options. When my guiding is bad it’s in the 2s or worse. Thank Hy, i’ll check those settings out.

I’ve never had what I would describe as good guiding. On a good night I would say my guiding is OK. But recently I found my guiding to be horrible. I switched to PhD2 for a little while as that was getting me better results. But last night I tried to use the internal guider again. I was finding the guiding just as poor when using the multistar. So I started to test some of the other algorithms. What I noticed was when I switch to Fast my guiding was good. I did notice that when using Fast I would lose the guide star occasionally. But when it found it again it was not far off and would continue.

So I guess my question is why would I be getting good guiding from one algorithm an absolutely horrible guiding from what everybody else is saying is the best newest way to guide?

My set up is an aVX mount, 50mm Orion guide scope, and an Altair 224mc camera.

Any ideas are appreciated.

My default settings got changed a little while back. I’ve been really struggling with guiding ever since. I just discovered that they changed, but have no idea what the defaults were. These are under the control tab and are integral gain, max and min pulse? Maybe these change depending on the hardware? Is there a recommendation of what these should be?

Thanks!

Not sure why but it seem to be set on stable. I had set it to Beta before. After selecting it again I got the update and can see what you see. Thanks.

Yes, I’ve checked this and double checked! I have adjusted the threshold up and down. And change the rotation under the CCD simulator. I’m using 100% simulators right now. And I’m using the load and slew.

I’ve been following along with the video that you posted above. I can’t seem to get the window to appear that shows the angle and rotation cw or ccw . I am on the nightly build.

This looks very interesting. I am eager to give it a whirl if it makes it into the nightly build. Any idea when that might be?
