Really amazing work. I can't believe how full featured it is for a V1. Great job.

Hi Jasem, looks really exciting - I am just wondering what is the advantage of a web-based application, compared to the one I download to my computer? What is the use case you have in mind? I thought it might be for people with an observatory „far away“ - or is there also a benefit for people that are next to their mount? Would be very curious as always!

This looks great. But a question. Does it have to be cloud based? Can it be hosted directly on the Raspberry Pi, for example? Put the Pi in hotspot mode, and my phone or tablet can connect to the Pi when I'm out in the middle of nowhere with no Internet access.

Agree with the idea of using it far from Internet access. My dark sites are dark in light, wifi and even cell phones. Truly off the grid.

Not yet, but it would be quite reasonable I assure you. I spent a lot of time in the development phase and now have to see how it actually scales along the associated costs.

Excellent question! For me, it would be very useful to use Ekos Polar Alignment Assistant tool directly without having to use TeamViewer..etc. Another use is for folks to monitor the progress of an ongoing astrophotography session while somewhere else. I've received stories like "My guiding aborted while I was an hour away and I couldn't do anything about it until I came back to my observatory". Well now with this, you can do such corrective actions from a distance! I'm sure there are other use cases, maybe for EAA as well (I plan on adding live stacking later).

I can see a use case for this. However, for the time being, I will work on the cloud deployment aspect. Maybe I can release a future version for offline use!

You need to use ekoslive branch:

git.launchpad.net/kstars-bleeding/log/?h=ekoslive
