I wrote a new driver for Gotonova since the differences were too great to modify existing ZEQ25. You will see "Gotonova" driver in tomorrow's PPA update. Please test that one.

The FITS headers are created in INDI, not KStars. It could be added, but can you can if the forumla here is sufficient?

Jasem Mutlaq created a new topic ' libgphoto2 PPA' in the forum. yesterday

Folks, I created PPA for latest libgphoto2 from Github for 16.04 and beyond. This should help in installing latest libgphoto2 without having to compile it or upgrade the OS. Initially, it was added to INDI PPA but as that was causing few issues, I moved it into a separate PPA.

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mutlaqja/libgphoto2
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libgphoto2

Please try it out and let me know if you have any issues with the packages.

I believe it has to do with libgphoto PPA. I'll open another topic on it.

I updated the driver to use :SE?# if it encounters an error. Please test tomorrow from PPA. If you can compile from GIT, you can do it today.

I see it timing out for :SE# command. Can you try connecting to it using Cutecom :

sudo apt-get install cutecom

Put speed at 9600, port to whatever port you were using (e.g. /dev/ttyUSB0), and connect to it. Select "No Line End" from the combobox at the bottom and enter :SE# and see if you get any response. If not, try :SE?# and see if you get any response back.

Also try :V# and check the response for that.

The problem is probably related to the libgphoto2-bleeding package I added recently to the repo. I just removed it now and added it in a separate PPA so users who wish to install latest libghoto2 can do it from there independently.

It _might_ be an issue with the PPA build, please wait until later today for an update.

Jasem Mutlaq replied to the topic 'iOptron Gotonova driver' in the forum. 3 days ago

The information is this thread is obsolete. There is already a ZEQ25 driver you can use. Use "SmartEQ" or "ZEQ25", they're the same. When using Ekos, there is no need to perform 2/3 star alignment, you can use Ekos right away and do the sync in there. I do not recommend you "Sync" manually, use Align module to do any syncs by solving images. But you can just click on the sky map on any object and then from the mount submenu you can select sync.

For other issues, please open a new topic.

Have you tried:

You could perhaps use the "Guide Scope". So even if you do not have one, adjust the Celestron "Guide Scope" so that whatever focal length you put there results in the correct FOV for Pole Master. Then from Align tab, you can select "Guide Scope" and FOV will be updated accordingly.

Works with IEQPro driver, correct?

Jasem Mutlaq replied to the topic 'Issue with Polar Alignment' in the forum. 5 days ago

So that error is not really important per se, but I just fixed it anyway. If you already run an alignment before you start Polar Alignment Assistant tool then WCS data is already valid, but if you use it straight away after you begin Ekos then there is no valid WCS data. At any rate, I now made it simply take another capture if there is no valid WCS data. Should be in the next KStars release.

IEQ driver uses :V# command to check connection. Use that and see if you get a response. Also, I think latest KStars on OpenSUSE is already old. Try kstars-bleeding on Kubuntu and see how that works. You can install Ekos VM as well (but make sure to run update after you run it first time).

Jasem Mutlaq replied to the topic 'Which property for INDI DATA STREAM' in the forum. 5 days ago

Oh this won'to work. I spend the last few hours on revising the code to make this doable again from within Ekos. I had to disable it before as it was causing issue, so now I rewrote the bits that enable/disable BLOBs and hopefully it should work in the next KStars release.

Jasem Mutlaq replied to the topic 'Cannot connect to iOptron CEM25p mount' in the forum. 5 days ago

Looks like this mount uses the newer command set, so try the IEQPro INDI driver and see if that works. Also, check my signature on how to submit logs. The indiserver -vvv is not always useful.
