I thank the development team.
Align module does not work properly after becoming a new Kstars.
I am using Celestron AVX.
After moving to the target object, align it.
Executing Slew to Target resulted in "Sync Filed" and alignment failed.
After that all Sync repeatedly failed.
Looking at the log, the command to AVX seems to be timed out.
I am connected with AVX via serial port, and can be controlled normally with KStar.
Please tell me how I can avoid the error.

Hello. I am a newbie with INDI and EKOS. I have the MacOSX Stars/EKOS installed on my system. Last night I was out with the telescope for the first time (after many hours with the simulators). I am able to capture images, and plate solve online. A solution is calculated, but EKOS is unable to sync or slew with my Celestron AVX. I polar align using PoleMaster, power on my AVX mount, and then point my mount at a star field and use EKOS to plate solve/align. Unfortunately, I am getting stuck after the image is captured and solved. I think this may be a similar problem to noriQ AVX mount, but am not sure. Thanks so much for your help! Suggestions?

Did you run the software update from the PPA? Make sure everything is up to date.

It should be fixed in the KStars v2.9.0 release for MacOS. Hopefully soon within 2 weeks or less.

Thanks, knro! Last night I installed Kstars-bleeding on Ubuntu (on Parallels on my OSX mac), and the plate solving worked to slew and sync with my AVX mount. This was the first time I have ever used Linux, so it was a bit foreign to me, but in the end, it worked great. Looking forward to the update on the OSX version. Thanks again!

Checking if this is the case on Linux Mint as well? I'm stuck on 2.8.9 waiting for the PPA to update.
In my case I'm running on a Paramount MX using the indi Paramount driver. Solving is working, but when it tries to slew not much happens. The system will repeat the solve and slew until it gives up. The deltas change very little, and what little change could be due to drift.
