The only issue I am having is the difference between RAW (CR2) and FITS images having different sizes. I decided to stick with FITS

Maybe need to change the screen resolution in the opposite direction. I have had my system off for a while due to changes, but when I get it running, I may try it out. It is possible the apps need some work in relation to fonts but in the meantime, they appear to be concentrating on device functionailty

This is the Raspberry Pi screen resolution setting that causes this. Need to set the resolution based on the size of the screen first then play around with other magnification settings as well. I have not spent the time to master the setting, just adjusted the setting to Large Screen.

Trying to get this answer myself for the last 2 years. I have a feeling for my set-up as alignment of the telescope to the mount. I think it safe to say that the position is of the telescope than the mount.

Interesting has the same flavour as the issue I had in Version 3.5.7 (FITS Viewer), but this was fixed in 3.5.8. Out of interest, try disabling the FITS viewer and see if it still plays up.

That is good, although I had a similar issue and the latest update cleared this problem. Go to KStars about and check you have 3.5.8.

Update if you have 3.5.7 or lower.

Since my last post, I concentrated on areas surrounding the DeBayer error. I ended up disabling the FITS Viewer and now I have no issues at all. No crashes. Every time I had the FITS Viewer open it would crash.

This actually fits my previous situation before upgrading to the latest. On version 3.56 the FITS Viewer I turned off, but still worked during previews. This was the best method, as I never ran the FITS viewer during imaging and during those times didn't crash hardly at all. Version 3.57 no longer worked the same way. To view preview images I had to activate the FITS Viewer, turning it on and off was annoying, so I left it on. Now I simply switch it off now.

I will keep monitoring but last night had an almost perfect imaging night with no crashes and flawless meridian flip.

Hopefully will have a resolution by the next clear weather session.

I unchecked the Auto Bebayer option in EKOS with nothing to do with Meridian Flip.

I ran it last night with 1 hour of capture, this time I watched the screen and for a very very short instance I saw a dialog box appear that was not entirely clear but could make out "Debayer Error"

I found the only option "Auto Debayer" and unchecked it. It lasted through the night but weather crept it so I did get a full capture afterwards. I will try and confirm this on the next clear night.

Thanks for the info, although concerning that at client like this was added. seems to say something concerning. I also see a lot of Meridian Flip failures on this forum too, which is concerning.

Also, this issue has only started recently as have been working well with MF for a long time.

Interesting, I deselected logging INDI, but it still logged it.

I will update further as it crashed again, also with the same messages apparent before it crashed

Well, it crashed again at almost exactly the same point in the logs, if not the same. I think there is a memory leak because there is a section of the log that request whether there is enough memory to carry out a task.
I might be wrong but, I have an 8G RAM RPi, so I think it is a bit weird that it would request this, but I have no coding experience in OS so I would have a clue why this appears. It did the same thing the night before.

It also appears that I have the option already selected for clearing the mount after Meridian flip anyway.

 



I am lucky I am pointing to an object that starts low because in the morning when I awake it is still tracking but fortunately nowhere near the limits.

I am going the deselect logging of INDI, as it appears that that may not be the issue, the logs are quite comprehensive, so I wish to reduce the logging as it may cause part of the problem. (Maybe)

Cheers, My system crashed after Meridian Flip last night so I am trying tonight without checking the box. Tomorrow will try again.
