Hello Seb,
Maybe you can do what I have done under Jasem advices, delete the EQMod config files under .indi.

I meet a weird behavior of the EQmod mount. And I don't know from where it comes. Does anybody have any idea ?

Hello Jasem,
I reset my clone of Kstars and git clone it to have a clean install.
I compiled it. All worked fine. But when I run kstars starting from command line and when trying to connect the telescope simulator I get a crash:

file:///usr/share/kstars/ekos/mount/qml/mountbox.qml:2:1: module "QtQuick.Controls" version 2.0 is not installed
import QtQuick.Controls 2.0

I will test it immediately.
Is it always on top?

Patrick created a new topic ' Test of the Tiker Board from ASUS' in the forum. 1 month ago

Hello,
We are working with a friend of mine on a all in one solution that can embed the Kstars/Ekos/INDI, PHD2 and/or lin_guider and as many as possible useful software.
We wanted it easy to use and as powerful as possible to offer a good response time for astrometric operations.
We have tested RPi3, Odroid-XU4 but none of them can't provide a fluent solution. So we choose to test the Tinker board from ASUS.
We installed the armbian distribution on it.
First tests are very encouraging as you can see on the following video from Laurent (Argonothe on webastro site).

Sorry I didn't saw that the 16Go SD card was more than 80% full. I was wondering it would be nice to reduce the size with gparted before creating the iso. But it is not useful.
Another point, I tested the indi-webmanager that worked fine without interaction with kstars profile.
Another point, it would be nice to have a multiple switch to choose the way to communicate between RPi and PC (wifi access point, wifi home network, usb, RJ45 wired) and display the different wifi network availables.

@maudy
I have tried to install indi-webmanager but got an error message when I run it.
I opened a new thread on this topic, because I guess this is not astroberry topic.
To manage date I have done a client/server in python that worked quite good but needed to be activated manually. Maybe not the better solution.

Hello Kaczorek,

Would it be possible to add those possibilities to astroberry:

1 improve wlan-conf gui to display the availables SSID and devices to use a better wifi device or to use an ethernet wired link (as network-manager do).
2 a little gui to choose the frame-buffer size in height and width (reducing it improve a lot display performances) with reboot choice.
3 integrate the indi webmanager to be able to use astroberry as a simple access point
4 include skychart and ccdciel in the available tools.
5 a swap space of 2Gb that could be useful
6 make a compressed iso image that can be expanded when starting mate for the first time. I must admit that I don't know how it can be done. But maybe you know :)

I appreciate the https access it is very useful. I have worked on point 4 and 5. It looks easy to do.

Thank you for this great job.

Hello Kackzorec,

I just installed astroberry on my Rpi3.
I met the first problem immediately with the zwo cams (ZWO 120MM-S and 178MM)
The exposures loops 3 times and fail. That looks like the situation we had few days ago with a package version or older version than the one that can be git today.
I tested the last release on my PC and the cameras worked fine.
Maybe Jasem can enlight us on what is wrong because he does something that fixed the problem.

Thanks
Patrick

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.
