Fully agree on that, it's great to see the community effort in it. Good point about the ascom drivers as well, I kind of hate the ascom way of control.. however, the drivers that do come with it never failed on me. That may have been my main point in all this, those remained (for better or worse) unchanged and thus stable. But ofcourse, that means they remain buggy for anyone's equipment where it didn't work.

Yes I think this intermediate period of the big change to github and all the commits was not optimal for the system as a whole. But I did see the positive direction coming out of that and that's why I'm still following the progress closely, as said, I love the entire setup and idea. Seems things are settling done judging from the forum issues (my new indicator :) ). So I'll fire it up for a session soon again. Thanks for all the effort and for the nice discussion!

Although I still use KStars and INDI, I have to agree that I shifted from using it fulltime to using it to set everything up, then switching to SGP. And It's totally not meant, as the TS also states, as a rant, we all love the enormous effort put into this still free software. It has so much potential, INDI rocks, but at the end of the day an astrophotographer needs to be able to rely on a system. My problem with it is that I updated to much, also my fault, but I noticed that stuff that always worked, suddenly didn't, then it did again, then it didn't. Things like the guider or my Canon, it fluctuated too much between versions to be able to rely on the updates. Again, totally get it, I programme as a hobby as well, still love the open-source of it and I might even go an learn to get involved into INDI as well. But these basic things fluctuating has been a thing since I started in 2015, our Dutch weather is terrible, so I kind of had to switch at some point. I do keep a good eye out on it though, the moment I think it's working great again with my setup I'll go back 100%. For the same reason of stability which is also needed and INDI totally offers that, Windows isn't my thing either. :)

Yes, welll... :) I'm a beginner in electronics, but have learned quite a bit about the various components in the past year. I also learned how to solder and read the diagrams. What I always end up finding difficult, is how to properly connect everything to ground. Is it simply, in your case, that all components feed back to the negative wire of the mains?

OMG this is awesome! Thanks so much for posting the pictures and diagrams, I'm already looking around for months to see what would be the best solution. I figured to design it myself, but this is so close to what I wanted I might as well try that. :)

Just out of curiosity, but why would you want to take a photo by hand when the INDI system is made for automatic workflows? I would almost assume it could throw that off (ofcourse would be nice if it didn't).

That would be nice indeed, I didn't have a chance to test this again, but it does seem the scheduler is not re-evaluating sometimes.

Yes, that would indeed be great. Thanks, I'll await those versions!

Well I wonder indeed. As for instance my setup was running great 6 months ago and now isn't. Granted, I should've simply made a backup of my SD-card. But it would be nice if there was a much longer stable version maybe, you can kind of get an idea at which time most people don't report a driver problem to make that the looong stable version. :) It's just something that came up as when I update the builts, all drivers are also updated very regularly and was wondering why.

Vincent Groenewold created a new topic ' Driver updates, why the frequency?' in the forum. 5 months ago

Just out of pure interest and because some drivers have been behaving badly recently, why are the Indi drivers actually updated so often? I understand this to be the case for Ekos and Kstars, but most drivers like eqmod, lodestar, etc. have been working fine for a long time so would it not be wise to have a sort of stable driver package just sitting there for people to use instead of even the stable and nightly builts? Just curious.
