Hi

Some of us here would like to use polar assistant, but their configuration (4/3 DSLR + C11) is resulting in too small FOV
Thus, here is the question :
Is it really mandatory to have such a wide FOV ?
What do we loose ? Precision ?
Or is it just because the risk is to not have real north and the mount north on one frame ?

Hi Jasem
I've made a few ones in french, since many of us here in France speak... french :)
I intend to do more, i think the next one will be to show Kstars/Ekos running on windows, with a Rpi acting as server.
This question comes really often in our forums ...

Yes it works very well !
But astrometry can't run on windows, and your pi might be a little slow to solve fields.
Keep only mandatory index files

Tried another trick :

sudo setserial /dev/ttyACM0 low_latency

This one seems to solve initial lag on connection
but :) also stuff described before (the unpark/slew symptom)

In"think" i've resolved the delay on first connection
i've read somewhere that "modemmanager" could be a problem, so :

sudo apt-get --purge remove modemmanager
This problem seems solved...

New (good) point :
I've just tried with a fresh Ekos VM on windows.
I don't see such behaviour
=>Something is wrong on my other config...

hi,
i'm still searching...
No solution found atm, but i've noticed another problem :
1-unpark => ok
2-sideral tracking on => ok
3-slew somewhere => mount moves somewhere
4-park => return to home & park => OK
5-unpark => ok
6-sideral tracking on => KO :
After doing that, my mount starts to slew (somewhere else...), then stops, and then only sideral tracking starts...
i'm trying to read logs

Hi

i'm building an AstroEQ board for my old EQ5 mount :
https://www.astroeq.co.uk/tutorials.php
This is really a great project.
You can follow my attempt here (in french) :
http://www.webastro.net/forum/showthread.php?t=151035
I took the Arduino option.
It's working quite well on Windows despite driver problems i'm having atm.

It's a little bit more difficule with Indi, i have two problems.

The first is a timeout when connecting, it lasts ~15s before connection to serial port is up.
I think this is an arduino related problem, but any i take any suggestion.

The second is that after connection, when i set sideral trasking, my RA motor doesn't move.
The only way to make it move is to make a brief slew to W or E with the motion buttons.
After, everything seems to go fine.

I've attached my log, i must say i couldn't find anything

Gilles.
