I'll also check their ASCOM support. Meanwhile, Matt at Planewave allowed me to share this info with the forum:

Hi Ollie,

Thanks for reaching out. We do not currently have INDI drivers for our mounts, but it is on our list for features to add. If you are interested in writing your own software we do offer a custom programming interface that can let you control the mount via a different machine on the network. i.e. using a Linux based machine to control mount software that's running on a Windows PC.

Best regards,
‚Äč
Matt Dieterich
Technical Services Manager

Does anyone know if Planewave offers an INDI driver (or plans to release one) for their direct drive mounts, such as the L-350?

I can contact them directly if nobody knows offhand.

Thank you,
Ollie

For question #2) When done imaging, can you disable dome slaving and then park (home) to the desired position?

I just installed the latest nightly packages and now the problem has vanished. I am able to take exposures without the error message about streaming being active.

Thank you for testing.

I have tried both the PPA and nightly build versions and am getting this error when trying to take an exposure:

Cannot take exposure while recording/streaming is active.

I verified that I that streaming is not enabled but the problem persists. Any suggestions on what to look for?

Thank you,
Ollie

Okay, that is good to know. I must have a problem with my setup. I'll start with a fresh install and see if it happens again.

Hi Eric,

Thanks for looking at the error output. I an using a OSC camera. No filter wheel installed. The FW and Filter options are greyed out in the Focuser area of Ekos as well.

Ollie created a new topic ' KStars crashes after a few autofocus cycles' in the forum. 5 months ago

Hi everyone,

Since the latest ppa upgrade to KStars and INDI my autofocus causes KStars to crash with a segmentation fault. I have not been able to get any error logs as a result.

It seems to happen after several autofocus data points are gathered. Autofocus was working fine prior to these latest updates.

I am using an Optec TCF-S with KStars Build 2018-04-11T16:32:28Z, Version 2.9.4, and KDE Frameworks 5.18.0, Qt 5.5.1. Attached is the crash output.

I'd be happy to gather more data if needed.

Thank you,
Ollie
