Thanks for the reply Jasem.
So this means I should enter the focal length x flattener reduction in Ekos for the plate solving to work best?

Hi,

When you set up a profile on the first page in Ekos, under "Select Telescopes", there is the option to specify multiple telescopes but also multiple eyepieces and lenses.
But where do you use/select the entered lens information? I can't find where to set this. You select Primary scope and Guide scope on the first page, but not which lens you use.

I entered the aperture and focal length for my William Optics GT 81, and the 0.8x reduction of the flattener (under "Lens").
But the lens has no effect since I can't select it anywhere...??

In the "Mount" tab, the telescope information is correctly imported, but neither here is any option to select my lens (the flattener).
Is it in this tab I should enter the calculated focal length (including the 0.8x flattener)? And in that case, why is there an option to enter the flattener information when creating the profile?

I'm confused... please advise me.

Thanks for your replies and information!
Good to know both seem to be good focusers.
I guess it boils down to which looks best on my gear then :lol:

Hi All,
I'm considering buying an auto focuser to use with the William Optics GT 81 refractor.
Is there a particular one that works best with Stellarmate?
I've lookaed at ZWO AEF and Pegasus FocusCube.
Any of these you recommend?

Thanks for your reply Jasem, very good support!

Right now when I'm in a capturing sequence it says:

total used free shared buff/cache available
Mem: 3650 1502 163 155 1984 1859
Swap: 2837 4 2833

Hi,

In the CCD module, will checking "Guiding Deviation <" abort the entire sequence or just the current image capture?
The help text says "Abort sequence if...", but that seems a bit of waste, doesn't it?

Hi again,
Is there any chance this bug will be looked into in a near future, or is there any other way I can temporarily avoid this crash?
E.g. is there a way I can disable the FITS viewer (since it seems it's in that area the bug is)?
Just so I can avoid crashes in the precious night sessions :-)

Thanks for your support.

Hello Jasem,

I just discovered I'm using 3.5.0 Beta already.

I just provoked another crash, please see the attached logs.
The way I provoked it was to loop the image capture in the guiding scope camera (to kind of simulate the autoguiding) and at the same time capturing a series of 300 sec images with the telescope camera.
It suddenly crashed leaving me with just an empty desktop screen.

Best regards,

Thanks a lot Jasem!
Where do I download 3.5.0 Beta? Is it part of the "StellarMateOS_1.5.4.img.xz" file?

I have provoked a new crash log just a moment ago - does this mean you don't need it then?

Cheers,

Don't know if this helps, but it doesn't seem all random.
I've got a feeling that the crashes normally happens where there is image capture activity of some kind, either when changing between flat frames to light frames or when there is an interruption by e.g. a meridian flip and the solver needs to capture some images.
Also in the output I provided in the previous post there are statements like "ISD::CCD::loadImageInView".
Could it be something in this area?
