I am always thankful for your help.
I confirmed the operation in the room.
It seems to be moving accurately.
I will see the stars on a sunny day and check.

Other notes
The reverse check box previously reported,
It worked without problems.

I anticipate that the alignment system is operating on the Equator Equator, Equator Equator calculation.
However, DSC does not work properly unless Azis 1 and 2 of the azimuth and elevation of the star map are linked.

Currently it does not do exact movement with star map. Where to read the coordinates other than the position set with the sync button was another move.

Even now, when it is synchronized three times with the azimuth (0, 180, 359), only the azimuth angle is aligned to the star map, but the movement of the altitude angle is not vertical.
(When synchronized at the same time, the azimuth and altitude angle are not synchronized with the star map).

It is important that the azimuth, elevation angle of the chart, the number of axis 1 and axis 2 are linked at the first stage.
(In order to absorb the displacement of the mount button, it is better to consider the synchronization button as a button reflecting the azimuth and elevation of the star map of axis 1 and axis 2.

In conclusion, I think whether it will function properly if the following contents are satisfied.

1. Initial setting

# 1 tick scale 0.087890625
# 1 tick offset 0
# 2 tick scale 0.087890625
# 2 Tick offset 0

In this state, both axis 1 and axis 2 are changed to 0,0.

2. Link azimuth angle, altitude angle, and axes 1 and 2 of the star map of Kstars.

3. Press the Sync button to change the axes 1 and 2 to the azimuth and altitude angle of Kstars' star chart.

that's all.

Thank you.

About operation of chart

I progressed while checking the movement of the star map of Kstars, but unless I pressed the sink button
It is not aligned with the angle between axis 1 and axis 2.
It does not move according to the angle of xis 1,2.

To operate with a certain degree of precision, move the mount to an easily recognizable number (for example, azimuth 180 degrees), hold the pointer at that position in the star chart, and press the synchronization button.
It is necessary to do the same operation also for the altitude angle.

However, even if you press the Sync button, since the numbers on axis 1 and axis 2 are not changed, inconsistent operation will occur, so please be careful.

About setting in half step
 
  It is from the Axis Settings tab.
 I tried the newly added Half button.
 
 # 1 Ticks Scale 0.087890625
 # 1 Ticks Offset -180
 # 2 Ticks Scale 0.087890625
 # 2 Ticks Offset -180
 
 With this setting, both Axis 1 and 2 become 0 and 0. (Azimuth angle 0 degree, altitude angle 0 degree)
 However, moving the azimuth angle from north to west will result in a negative angle.
 Both axes will be advanced from -180 ← 0 → 180.
 
 this
 
  # 1 Ticks Scale 0.087890625
 # 1 Ticks Offset 0
 # 2 Ticks Scale 0.087890625
 # 2 Ticks Offset 0
 
 If you do, Axis 1 and 2 will be both 180 and 180. (Azimuth angle 180 degrees, altitude angle 180 degrees)
 However, in this setting, both the azimuth angle and the altitude angle are displayed from 0 ° → 360 ° → 0 °,
 With this setting, if the initial value of Axis 1 and 2 becomes 0,0, it will be in the correct motion.
 
 # 1 Degrees Offset, # 2 Degrees Offset changes to Axis 1, 2 even if the value is changed
 It does not seem to work because it is not there.

Thank you for your reply.
It seems that it is not listed in the debug log, so I annotated the photo for clarity.

If the numbers of Axis 1 and 2 are treated as they are in Kstar, I think they will synchronize with the position of the star map.

I think that it is necessary to adjust 2 and 3 described last time.



2. The "Sync" command is not functioning for both Kstars and INDI drivers.

3. When checking the inversion of polarity in the "Axis Settings" tab of the INDI driver,
The numerical values ​​of Axis 1 and Axis 2 are strange.
(In the above setting, check Axis 1, Axis 2 0,0 (range 0 to 360), check it, it will be 720, 720)

I am always grateful for your help.
I have installed a new version so I will report it.

My environment is
I checked at 4096 on both axes.

Initial setting "Axis Settings" tab of the INDI driver

# 1 scale, # 2 scale to 0.087890625
(Value of 360/4096)
I set # 1Offset, # 2Offset to 180.

By setting this, Axis 1 (possibly azimuth) in the "Main Control" tab,
Axis 2 (probably the altitude angle) became 0 respectively, and when you moved the telescope, the numbers of Axis 1 and Axis 2 changed normally.
(0-360

However, unfortunately it did not work properly for the following reasons.

1. The numerical values ​​of Axis 1 and Axis 2 are not accurately reflected in Kstars, and the movement of the pointer indicating the position of the telescope is strange. (Proceed extremely or step in the opposite direction.)

2. The "Sync" command is not functioning for both Kstars and INDI drivers.

3. When checking the inversion of polarity in the "Axis Settings" tab of the INDI driver,
The numerical values ​​of Axis 1 and Axis 2 are strange.
(In the above setting, check Axis 1, Axis 2 0,0 (range 0 to 360), check it, it will be 720, 720)

that's all.

Please confirm when you have time.

I was able to display it on the OS X Kstars, Ekos list.
Thank you very much.

Currently, I am challenging OSX Kstars localization.
I installed kde - 10 ln on MacPort, but it was not reflected in Kstars.
Since there was a Kstars language file in the installation file, let's investigate a little more.

Hello
I upgraded to the latest state and checked the DSC driver.

Explain the results and measures.
(Please also check the description of attached data)

1. Since it is set to the hour angle, it does not match the movement of the star map.
(Setting of azimuth angle and altitude angle is required, the unit is angle).

Encoder resolution can not be set. There is no place to enter.

3. A check box is required to change the polarity of the encoder.


The procedure up to the above observation is as follows.

1. Point the telescope to the south or south of the south.

2. Connect the INDI driver.

Enter the direction of the telescope set in 3.1.
(North: azimuth angle 0 degree, altitude angle 0 degree,
South: in the case of an azimuth angle of 180 degrees, altitude of 0 degree)

4. Point the telescope to the reference star, introduce it to the center, right click on the star chart software to display the menu and synchronize.
(Make sure that the azimuth and elevation angle of the star's current time are set from the star chart software)

Example: When starting at local time 170 degrees azimuth, elevation angle 45 degrees, encoder step 4096 (both axes) polarity +, south direction, altitude angle 0 degrees.

The encoder count of the azimuth angle of 170 degrees is as follows.
2048 - ((180-170) * 4096/360) = about 1934

The altitude angle is 45 degrees or less
2048 - (45 * 4096/360) = about 1536

When synchronizing on the star chart software, if there is a deviation from the above values, it is input as an offset value.

PS.LNMOJB - Z.TXT is a log file. The file name changed as you brought the data to Mac.

that's all.
