The same is happening to me using V4L2 Webcam and Focus simulator.
As soon as I increase exposure and select a different field, for example, the ccd detector, it crashes Kstars, where's the gdb debug:

Ok, so if you have the port showing that's good, it's detected by linux.

First check if you have bluetoothctl installed, normally it is. If not you should install it using:
sudo apt-get install bluetoothctl. Ubuntu should take care of other dependencies.

After that you follow this steps by order:

bluetoothctl
[bluetooth]# agent on
[bluetooth]# default-agent
[bluetooth]# scan on
...
[bluetooth]# pair XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
[bluetooth]# trust XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
[bluetooth]# connect XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
[bluetooth]# quit


And the last part is tricky, some have made it on boot, some don't.

You can add this to the file /etc/rc.local:

rfcomm bind hci0 XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX 1 &

This did not work for me, I created a bash script with the same line and run it after login in.

Note: XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX is the mac address of the adapter that you are trying to connect, it's listed after the SCAN ON command.

Hi,
I am not using eqtooth, but use a DIY similiar solution with my HEQ5.
Does the eqtooh comm port get detected on operating system? Wich one are you using (Linux?).
If so, mine usually shows as an rfcomm0 port. You should have at least one port with similiar name on /dev folder.
Did pair it with the receiver?

Yes I have seen it too with all color sets, it seems random, specially switching between color set and zooming in and out. Maybe a graphics glitch?

Yes I had to do that on mine as I had too much steps and I could not find the center spot.
Try to do it cutting the current steps in half and so on.

I can report the same, only works for manual slew with my HEQ5. Goto is always at full speed.

I am just making a session right now and I got 1.4 on focus. That's the best for tonight, the sky is not very steady. Also I live in a suburban area so I have some light pollution adding to that.

Well having a river near can be kind of problematic because of ascending water currents.

What HFR values would you expect with your DSLR similar to my Canon700D?


It depends on the star you are trying to focus and focus accuracy (motor / manual). In autofocus my 550D usually has values around 1.2 - 1.5. Sometimes more than that. Usually I make a motorized (accufocus) manual focus and can achieve 0.8 to 1.0. But only on very steady nights.
