The latest OSX version available to download is 3.4.3
You can also compile it from github.com/rlancaste/kstars-on-osx-crafts

I do not think 3.5.0 is considered stable.

I have been testing this home position a lot now, and it is extremely reliable. I'm still waiting for my USB cable to connect this mount to my laptop.
Hopefully the park position of Indi is as good as the home position of the hand controller.

Also looking at options to add limit switches to avoid crashing the mount.

I am really surprised that there is no mechanical switches build in this mount to avoid collisions.

I do not think that my counterweight bar is 100% square to the top of the DEC motor box. I can clearly see it's offset by a small amount.


Not an actual picture of my mount, just for illustration purposes.

The green line is not at 90° to the red line, so is this normal?

In the following folder /etc/apt/sources.list.d you should see a few mutlaqja-ubuntu-ppa files
See if one of them contain the following:

I am way behind yours, Stephane!

I don't think firmware is the problem.


My USB cable should be there in a few days time, I will be able to test this park & meridian flip soon.
