When I try
sudo apt-get update as I usually do, I get the following info:

E: Repository ' ppa.launchpad.net/mutlaqja/ppa/ubuntu artful InRelease' changed its 'Label' value from 'INDI' to 'INDI Stable Builds'
N: This must be accepted explicitly before updates for this repository can be applied. See apt-secure( 8 ) manpage for details.

Any ideas on this?

libsbig collides with libsbigudrv2. Therefore you must uninstall libsbigudv2 first and then install libsbig.

There is an interesting thread about 16bit issues:

My impression from this is that referring to the USB3 cams is just an excuse.

Klaus replied to the topic 'A complete help for polar align.' in the forum. 1 year ago

I've used the legacy PA of EKOS successfully, so everything's fine.

For using the new PA, it may be crucial where the vicinity of NCP ends. The northern direction is almost completely blocked so that I can point the scope up to the zenith which means that I can't come closer as 40 deg to the pole (I'm on 50 deg north.) Nevertheless, I'll give it a try when time permits.

I've read the article Ron has pointed out and from my point of view it does not describe the usual Scheiner method already implemented in EKOS. The central statement is:

A simple method for adjusting for polar alignment error has been given.  By selecting a reference star close to the meridian and celestial equator, a star offset position can be calculated from the altitude and azimuth alignment errors.  Pointing a telescope at this position and adjusting the mount to recenter the reference star brings the mount into very close alignment.

The author advocates for taking one image, calculating both azimuth and altitude error and correct them with one reference star. Having such a process in EKOS would speed up the process and being a plus. Unfortunately, I can't use the new polar alignment routine as I can't see Polaris from my terrace where I set up my scope every time I want to be with the stars. This means that every minute counts when setting up.

BTW: Years ago I found a website which makes use of one star in the zenith for polar alignment. Unfortunately, it is in German only, but I provide it for the curious:

Any more thoughts about this?

Klaus replied to the topic 'Are Ekos settings suppposed to be saved on exit?' in the forum. 2 years ago

Hi Derek,

as far as I know settings of KStars/INDI/EKOS (settings made in KStars configuration dialog) are stored automatically on exit once applied. Settings made in running EKOS are only stored when hitting the respective save configuration button. To make sure that your specific settings are loaded check "On connection" at Configure Kstars --> EKOS --> General tab.

Settings config files are

~/.indi device configurations
~/.config/kstarsrc KStars settings
~.local/share/kstars KStars settings and data

Klaus replied to the topic 'Ekos crashing adding sequence.' in the forum. 2 years ago

Yes, it happened to me too last week when I did a number of darks and after finishing I wanted to run a second sequence with a different chip temperature. I deleted all old sequence entries, changed the temp, waited to settle and then added new sequence entries but KStars became unresponsive and finally I killed the process. Unfortunately, I haven't it running in debug mode.

Is it necessary (or of any help) that the guider ccd rows are parallel to the RA axis or does it simply not matter?
