Hi John,

Thanks for the reply.
I was insisting on finding those settings in the eqmod driver. Thanks for clarifying.

Regarding the watchdog, is something I saw a long time ago but didn't pay attention. Thanks for reminding me. I've been reading again and I have a doubt. As far as I understand, ekos acts as a client against the watchdog driver. How often does ekos send such heatbeats? The watchdog config heartbeat settings, as far as I understand, is the timeout the driver waits to receive the heartbeat. Does ekos also take this value to send them?

Miguel created a new topic ' How to set RA/DEC limits' in the forum. 6 days ago

Hi,

Is it possible to set limits to RA/DEC position in a similar way ascom eqmod allows? This feature is to prevent hitting the pier/tripod in case a meridian flip fails.

thanks Steve. Although I'm not able to fully link a particular commit with a particular kstars version, according to the commit date and kstars build I can almost suspect the one I'm looking for.
Thanks for sharing

Hi,
If I have fits viewer with two opened files (which, by the way, always happens automatically when imaging and guiding, one fit from the main camera and another from the guide one); when I press the "clip" red button to inspect the main image, the value of clipped pixels disappear just when the other fit file (from the guide cam) refreshes:

Miguel created a new topic ' Kstars ppa changelog' in the forum. 4 months ago

Hi. This is a rather simple question. How can I figure out the changelog of a new kstars update? Ubuntu's system update program always reports "autobuild" on changelog. I also tried to match the .deb version against an specific commit in github, but it's quite confusing.

I confirm everything works fine. Thanks Jasem

Hi,
I've noted that sometimes plate solve does not work as expected. Well, I would say that is an alignment issue rather that plate solving.
Plate solve works pretty well always. But sometimes the corrections applied are very very small. Let's say I have an error of 1400 arcsec. After a "capture and solve -> slew to target" action, it applies such a small correction that the next iteration the solver returns 1392 arcsec of error, for example. And over and over, in very small steps.
I don't note this behavior always, but sometimes. Although (I'm not sure), it seems to behave likes this after a meridian flip. Then, I have to manually clean the model and capture and solve again. Then, it works.

Jasem, please disregard the message. I need to do more tests. Not sure if it's working or not

I'm attaching what I consider the most relevant log lines. I made a sequence of one L image and one R. It should have refocused on switching to R

hi Jasem. I still experience the issue. The refocus routine does not trigger on filter change (updated to Build: 2022-10-04T16:15:28Z)

thanks for the prompt response. Wishing to test it.
