I don't understand why you can't align with DSC ? You can calibrate the alt-az mount on sky with sync in skysafari. Isn't it equivalent ?

It is good to hear it. Will it work with basic DSC encoders ? That would be a killer solution for public observation that will come this summer.

@Peter
I can't install the deb package. So I compiled it from git content.

@bads3ct0r
Does this mod influence the performances of the camera in fps ?

No I didn't. My cam is a very recent USB3 version. Few months ago version. Is it useful to do it ?

I have tested all you suggest. And I am connected directly to the PC or via a hub. But the result is always the same. I can't understand where the problem is.
Today I will test the cam connected to the RPi3 to see if the SDK under ARM device behave the same way.

I am really desperate and angry :angry: . The sky is clear and the night promise to be nice. But unfortunately I am stuck again with with my ZWO120MM. Whatever I do The camera fail to capture an image. So the autoguiding move away from my mind.
The camera works fine under Planetary-Imager to take movies :( . So I am totally lost.
Have you such problems with this cam. Soon I will believe that this is a real bullshit or maybe the SDK is a bullshit.
Whatever, guys, can you suggest me a not too expensive solution that can surely works for autoguiding ?
Just for information here is the log file.

Patrick created a new topic ' Index tab for astrometry doesnt fit in low resolution screens' in the forum. 3 weeks ago

Hello,
In Ekos, in the options for astrometry, the tab where the indexes for resolution are listed is too long to be displayed on low resolution screens.
Would it be possible to have a right vertical slider to browse all indexes ?

Hello,
Well DSC looks to works fine. I think I will be able to make a real test next week if the clouds let me do it.
After having done syncs on several stars, a thing that would be nice to have is a big countdown counter that display the distance in azimuth and altitude to go from a current position to a choosen target. It might be activated by something like for a goto telescope a goto action in the drop down floating menu.

No I mean that if, manually, I choose east direction for first rotation, at the second rotation one west is checked instead of est.

Patrick replied to the topic 'Ekos Polar Alignment Assistant (Beta) is here!' in the forum. 1 month ago

I tested the alignment method yesterday. Just a simple remark. When a slowing orientation (west or east) is chosen at first rotation it remained not set at second rotation.
Anyway I didn't had enough time to test the accuracy as the clouds went to ruin the rest of the night.

Tested it an hour ago. It works fine on 3 stars in Leo. But as for the first iterations the error is huge the colored target becomes very very tiny. So we have to rescale and pan. It. would be better to rescale the target while the points are drawn. Maybe it could be a better solution.

Patrick created a new topic ' Problem compiling kstars (cmake): missing dependencies ?' in the forum. 2 months ago

I try to compile kstars from git. I met a problem with cmake:
Could not find a package configuration file provided by "ECM" (requested
version 1.7.0) with any of the following names:

ECMConfig.cmake
ecm-config.cmake

Add the installation prefix of "ECM" to CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH or set "ECM_DIR"
to a directory containing one of the above files. If "ECM" provides a
separate development package or SDK, be sure it has been installed.

I don't know what is missing nor what to do. I have installed all ecm packages (sudo apt install ecm). Can you give me a help ?
Thanks

Hello Robert,
I assume that it is not your tool that is to incriminate. Maybe I would have to open a new thread for this topic.
For the test I evoke I just used simulators. And all looks fine, I have the good focal and aperture.
But for this object HD198149 the solver never converge and doesn't move the simulator mount. The object is 61° DE which is far from the North Pole.
I tried to do the same for Alderamin in Cepheus and the result was identical.
I have set the telescope focal and aperture to receptively 777 and 111mm. The camera simulator is 1280x960 pixels of 3,75µm. And all the index files covering the computed field (41.3' x 30.9') are presents (index-4208.fits 2Mass and index-4108.fits Tycho2).

Patrick replied to the topic 'Exciting new tool in Ekos for Mount Modelling' in the forum. 2 months ago

This morning I tested the astrometry function with simulators.
I tracked the HD198149 star and try to solve field. The process doesn't converge to a solution. Is it because of the simulators or the process itself ?
I have to mention that I had, sometimes, same behaviors in real situation in some regions of the sky.
