Thanks, Jasem, as always.
I installed 2.9.4 for Windows to my PC running Win10, and had to re-install the latest Visual C++ redistributable after that.
It would be better to add some note on this or add a script for vc_redist to the installer.

Have you tried the link on the KDE project site ?

edu.kde.org/kstars/

The Download page for the kstars for Mac has been left untouched since release of the older version. The latest version is 2.9.3, which will soon be updated to 2.9.4 and will be available from the link on the KDE project page.

An hour ago, I downloaded the 2.9.3 installers from the quick link, whose size is a bit larger than the previous one.
Now the icons are back, and of course, the offline astrometry works fine on Windows.
Thanks again, Jasem.

Thanks so much, Jasem!

The binary works file with my field setup as shown in the SS attached.

Another issue: the small icons on each Ekos panel disappeared.

Hi, Jasem.
I've read how to build Kstars from sources on Windows, techbase.kde.org/Projects/Edu/KStars/Building_KStars_on_Windows , but it does not seem to be complete.
If you have an executable binary build from the revised source of astrometry parser, could you upload it and let me know the link to it?

I've used a Macbook Air 11" for kstars, while the INDI server is running on RPi3, which is attached to the scope. Since the battery of the Air 11 runs in short time and the small display is not suited to use the kstras. I bought a Windows PC whose battery is more than twice of the Air 11 and has the FHD screen.
As I wrote above, the kstars 2.9.2 works so fine as on the Macbook, but the 2.9.3 has the issue on Wifi connection. If this issue is not solved by the forthcoming kstars, I will make my PC dual bootable with some Linux such as Ubuntu.

No, I cannot immediately. I'm new to Windows and recently introduced a note PC to use INDI in the field.
I could build kstars following the instruction on techbase.kde.org/Projects/Edu/KStars/Building_KStars_KF5 , but it will take some time, since I have no development environment on my PC.

I would be better, if you build the modded kstras and send me a link to download the binary.

I've roughly read the log of kstars.git, but couldn't find any possible cause of the issue.
Since 2.9.2 allows successful plate solver with the ANSVR local astrometry on Windows, it may be possible that some change in the Qt binaries/libraries is brought after the release of 2.9.2, which affects the behavior of networkAccessible().

I noticed that you modded the code onlineastrometryparser.cpp, and soon later, you reverted. I don't know why, but your mod would solve the issue. If you need any test, I'll help to test a revised binary on Windows.

Thanks, Jasem, for your reply.
Do you mean by "accessible" that the client Windows can reach not only the server on the RPi3, but also the internet?
If so, I cannot use the RPi running the INDI server with the Ekos on Windows in the field.
Hmm.., it's strange that the solvers of 2.9.2 and former have succeeded with the same setup.

Koichi Funakubo replied to the topic 'KStars 2.9.3 is released' in the forum. 2 months ago

I tested with my field setting, that is, the RPi3 is connected with a cable to a small Wifi router (TL-WR802N), to which the Windows PC accessed thru Wifi. Then the Windows PC and the RPi3 are isolated from the internet.
With this setup, the Kstars 2.9.2 succeeded to plate-solve, as shown in the attached SS, but 2.9.3 shows "Error: No connection to the internet" as in the second SS.

I changed the network config in such a way that the RPi3 is wiredly connected to my home LAN and the PC is connected to the LAN thru Wifi. Then the solver succeeded as shown in the third SS. In this case, the PC can reach the internet outside the LAN.
I wonder 2.9.3 may check the connection to the internet when the "Online" solver is selected.

Kstars 2.9.3 on Windows prevents the offline plate solver from working and complains that it's not connected to the internet.
In my setup, the INDI is running in a remote RPi3 (ubuntu) and the Windows PC has the ANSVR Local Astrometry.net solver, and in the Ekos alignment module, the solver type is set to "Online" and the address is set to 127.0.0.1:8080. The RPi3 is not connected to the internet, but this setup worked fine with the Kstars 2.9.2.
Does the new Kstars check whether the remote server connected to the net, and if not, does it give up plate solving?

Thanks, Jasem.

As you suggested, selecting "Local" as the Upload option makes it possible to save the image on the SD card, but at the same time, it is uploaded to the RPi. Is it possible to force the INDI server not to upload to anywhere and to save only to the SD card?

Koichi Funakubo created a new topic ' How to make gphoto save images only to SD card?' in the forum. 12 months ago

I'm running the INDI server on a RPi3 which is controlled remotely from the kstars on my MacBook Air.
A Nikon DSLR is connected via USB to the RPi and I can capture and auto-focus with the USB_focus on my scope by this setup. I'd like to save captured images ONLY on the SD card in the camera, not on the RPi or the client Mac, once the focus and plate-solving are finished.
With the gphoto2 command-line app, setting the capturetarget to 1 enables to save the images on the SD card, and I found the setting of the capturetarget on the INDI control panel, but it seems not to work. The INDI server on my RPi (Jessie) was built from the source on the GitHub after installing the latest gphoto2 lib and app. Searching this forum, I found the following thread showing the "SD Card" option for the Upload in the control panel:

indilib.org/forum/general/354-nikon-bulb...d.html?start=36#1596

How can I realize this state in my setup? Is there any patch to the present distribution of the source codes?

Thanks in advance.

Thanks, Jasem.
I did the test following your advise, start INDI with the Ekos option "Load Device Configuration" being "Never".
The D800E works fine in this case and the config can be successfully loaded pushing Load in the INDI control panel. Then stopped the INDI, connected D810A in place of D800E, and started INDI. The control panel appeared and I pushed "Save" the config, and got the yellow as before. After that, any pushing button did not do anything even Disconnect. In the .indi directory on RPI3, there is the config file "Nikon DSLR DSC D810A_config.xml", which seems so natual. After quit and restart the kstars, both D800E and D810A cannot be connected.
I checked on the RPi3 by lsusb and gphoto2 --status that both the cameras are recognized by the RPi3.
Then I rebooted it and started the kstars on Mac. First, I connected the D800E and got the first log. Then stop the INDI and connect the D810A, then start the INDI again. The control panel appeared as before, and I pushed "Load" config and got the yellow again.
After that, all the behaviors are the same. Then I again connected the D800E and restarted the kstars and INDI to get the third log which shows faulty to connect the camera.

The loading config after start of the INDI gave no improvement. I'll have to wait you solve this problem.

Hello Jasem,

After you explored my RPi, I tried different combo with the D810A and saw different behaviors from each. I got another microSD card, on which installed the latest Ubuntu Mate for RPi and the indi-full and kstars-bleeding packages as well as the tightvncserver.

1. indiserver on RPi and kstars on Mac
In contrast to the case of the raspbian where I saw the Indi control panel, even the driver seemed not to start and showed the dialog attached.
I found 2 different logs, which are attached (remote_log_D810A_1.txt and remote_log_D810A_2.txt)

2. indiserver and kstars on RPI
In this case, gphoto started but could not recognize D810A. (see local_RPi_log_D810A.txt)
Is the gphoto2 contained the repository older than 2.5.9? (D810A is supported in ver. >= 2.5.9.)

3. kstars 2.7.6 on Mac
Does not work for any my Nikon DSLR as before. (local_Mac_log_D800E.txt)

How about the progress on this issue?

Yes, sshd is running on my RPi. I've left a message on remote login to you.
