I'll second your Doh! I had been looking for that button for a while. I kept looking at the bar at the top of the image window. You know, the one with the controls for the image :)

Jim replied to the topic 'How to make USB GPS receiver work for me' in the forum. yesterday

How does the Stellarmate serial port mapper handle having two devices that have the same USB to serial controller such as the Prolific. In this situation, the IDs end up being the same. This is the case I still have some trouble with because gpsd wants to assign the device automatically itself with udev, and it ends up trying to map to my mount causing eqmod to go offline. It is actually gpsd that does not handle this well I think. It assumes that everything that matches a set of IDs is a gps and builds the device links for it and hangs on to the port.

this one is 2560x1440. It does behave the same on a HiDPI though.

That looks nice :) I give you what I see. I wonder if screen resolution is at play here too. What is your resolution? If you grab the bar between the log and the upper frame, and pull it down, does the upper frame continue to fill the space?

Jim created a new topic ' Align tab layout and resizing' in the forum. 5 days ago

Greetings, one thing that I have to do every time I start a session is to resize and layout the Ekos tabs. Would it be possible to have the layouts and geometry saved between sessions? One other thing that would be nice is to have the working area use the same frame divider for the bottom of the panel as the log area uses as its top. That is, I can resize the log area of the Align panel by moving the top of the panel up and down, but when it is collapsed to the bottom of the window, the top panel will no resize down at all. I attached a picture to help explain.

Jim created a new topic ' INDI GPSD and kstars clock' in the forum. 5 days ago

I just wanted to mention that if connected to gpsd, and things are set to "sync the computer to the device's time", the time updates every second. Is this frequency by design? It logs a lot :)

No question it costs a lot. That is just one of the reasons kstars/INDI/EKOS is so amazing.

Jim replied to the topic 'Live Preview - ASI1600MM-Cooled via RPi' in the forum. 1 week ago

Can you tell a little more about your configuration? Are you running ethernet for example? I have never gotten my 1600 to stream, but I am currently stuck on wifi... fast wifi, but wifi all the same. On occasion I can get my 2MP 290 to stream, but usually only the first time. Any additional tries net the black screen.

Jim replied to the topic 'Frame outline of solved image on sky map has wrong rotation' in the forum. 1 week ago

Do you have a rotator? I do not, but this is when I noticed it start too. I mentioned something on here, but failed to follow up on it. When I loaded the first version that supported the rotator, it loaded with some weird rotated angle by default, even without a rotator device. I set it to 0, but the solver doesn't seem to reflect it correctly in kstars, as you are seeing. Everything else still works, so that is probably why it didn't bother me a lot.

I guess that would explain why it does not work for me at all with a 16MP camera over wifi :)

My 2 MP ASI290 doesn't usually work either for what it is worth. There is ethernet in my future.
