The UI is definitely improving with each release, but its early days and when the UI changes a lot then its back to the start of the learning curve to figure out what has changed. Fortunately I have been using Ekos directly for a few years now so there is fallback.

Check if there is a network path to the RPi IP. Does it respond to pings from your PC?

I think it just needs an overhaul, removing old articles and pages that are no longer relevant. eg. the Contribute menu, the Tutorials section etc.
The Forum is well hidden under the Community menu and should be made more prominent.

Thats a good point about SEP, John. I did check and they are identical.
Now to remember to take screenshots when it all goes pear shaped. I will enable saving of focus images and the focus logs. Now to just wait for the lovely clouds to part in our beautiful country :-)

Thanks Alfred. I get lovely focus using Kstars v3.6.0 but it struggles with newer version. Hence trying to sort of work out a migration path (for want of a better term). As mentioned in my first post, I did a run with v3.6.7 and failed, so swapped SD card to v3.6.0 and got perfect focus for the same objects.

I have the SW130pds newt with ASI533 and I am struggling to get the ZWO EAF to autofocus using Kstars 3.6.7. It works well using the older version (3.6.0)
I have tried to replicate the same parameters from the old version to the new. The problem seems to be that HFR calculation is off/different? So even if I can see donuts on screen the HFR readings are lower so Focus routine thinks its got the minima. :-(
If I switch the SD card to the older version and do an Autofocus its perfect. Can anyone help please.

Good work John. At this rate we are going to need a separate video that does an Idiots guide on which method to use :-)

Ref feedback, here is a thought.... perhaps you could show value using traffic light system at each of the corners to visually tell the user which corners need improving (rather than which screws need adjusting). So if top RHS is showing Red value, I know I need to bring that down and as I move the screws if the value keeps changing to Amber then I know I am moving in right direction.

If I remember correctly FC can use two types of connections - direct or via INDI. Which option are you using?
