.This is great, thank you for this great upgrade!

As far as blind plate solving, would you uncheck in Scale and Position the RA and DEC vs leaving that and entering 0? (As read in another thread)..

Also would it be proper to leave the corresponding . update check marks in place?

A side question, are nightly builds equivalent to bleeding builds?

Thx

Hey thanks for the help. I have not used cmake much.
I tried your instructions, cmake with -S <src directory>.
However, I cannot find where to insert the install directory this error is calling for:

"CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:39 (install):
install FILES given no DESTINATION!"

I had not seen `pwd` /.. as a means to change to root but figured that out and added GSC for /GSC which exists already.
I also tried with no change to the MakeFile but the above error still comes up.

Thanks for the help

I tried to get this going but I think the toolchain in Gentoo wont compile the source. It fails looking for the correct software to do so.
I will either just use my Astroberry Pi or spin up an Ubuntu docker image at some point.
Thanks

It seems that the .deb installer just places files.
Following that I have the data files with the two regions.xxx files in a bin subdirectory.
Also, decode and gsc executables are in /usr/bin.
From here I can only surmise that I need GSCDAT and GSCBIN environment variables for this to work.
Am I correct or is there some other “configuration “ of Ekos needed?

Thanks

Hi, I was going to ask a general question about simulations but have managed to get a profile in Ekos up and running.

However I don’t know how to get the GSC Catalog installed on a Gentoo system.

Would a flatpak work (never done it) or is there another way?

Thanks

"Myself I followed a short PDF from Astrorunner who wrote the software..."

Do you have a link for that, or any other similar documentation?
I appreciate the link above though, which was quite helpful, thanks.

I would also appreciate more information on this.

Bump!

Thank you for the reply. I will try out the V4L2 driver.

As for building on Bullseye, my rpi3 hung about an hour in. I decided better to go with Buster for this project.

Will an old v1.7 Raspberry Pi camera work with indi-allsky?

I am also building indi-allsky on an Rpi 3 Bullseye installation. Judging from the time to build it, I may be a little too ambitious!

Thanks
