Yes, KStars is running on the StellaMate device. Ekos Live is also connected.

In the cases where the app doesn’t crash when tapping the Ekos button, I just get a white screen. I will wait for the new version to experiment further.

Also, I can connect to the remote server from my Mac and control things. It is just the iOS app that is giving troubles.

OK, I've retried with a generic RPi4 and I seem to have the same issue with stuck syncing. I have my profile set up to use a Losmandy Gemini and SkySafari. With the camera set as Simulator it works. If I specify a Canon DSLR I get the endless "Please wait while syncing...". Even if I switch back to the Simulator camera, I get the syncing problem until I restart the StellarMate app.

I am able to use this combination from macOS running KStars. It is only with the app that I see this problem.

Jasem,

Glad to hear the crash is fixed, but that still doesn't explain the cases when it is stuck "syncing". What is being synced and what prevents it from completing?

I neglected to mention that this was done with ASIAir hardware with a StellarMate SD card. Maybe that is the cause of the problem. I just received a generic Raspberry Pi 4 yesterday and will be trying that in a bit after assembly.

I am just getting started with StellarMate/Ekos.  Currently using the StellarMate iOS app to control things.  Yesterday I was having success during the day controlling the mount as a test.  Today, I added a DSLR camera.  From the iPad I can connect to the StellarMate.  I can start my "home" Equipment Profile and everything seems to connect.  However, if I tap the Ekos tab, I get the message "Please wait while syncing...".  Sometimes the app will crash immediately after that and sometimes the "Please wait" message displays forever (well, at lease 10 minutes before I give up).

Things do work if I select the Simulator profile.

I have tried powering everything off and restarting but that does not help.  I have recreated the Home profiles, but it still crashes when tapping the Ekos tab.

Any thoughts as to what is going on?
