I would really like to see a build number or something similar so, as you said, it would be easier to make sure you are running the correct version.

I have the same issue.

Wasn't sure which logs or where to find them so I just attached the app output from QT Creator for a run of kstars when the filter wheel didn't work.

I'm running it on a 4k monitor that I am running at 3008x1692.

I have fixed my issue by putting a splitter between the log view and the rest of the screen.

My equipment is:
Mount - ZEQ25
Main Camera - ASI1600MM-C

Eric Vickery created a new topic ' How to make and submit a patch?' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

I have made a small change that puts a splitter in between the log view and the rest of the screen and now I would like to submit a patch for possible approval but I'm not sure how.

I have used git a good bit but only on repos that I have rights to and just do normal commits and pull requests.

Eric Vickery replied to the topic 'Kstars OS X missing drivers' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

I figured out the tabs. It is an OS X feature. In System Preferences->Dock there is a setting "Prefer tabs when opening documents". I think it makes kstars easier to use.

BTW. How do you get the image to show up in the message instead of just as an attachment?

Nope. It looks like this. Notice the 2 tabs across the top.

This is not on the right hand side. The Ekos window is in a tab at the top of the screen. Not sure how to upload a screen shot to show you what I'm talking about.

It would be nice if sections of the Ekos windows were resizable because when I run Ekos on my big monitor the log view takes up about 50% of the height of the window. I would much rather see more of the other parts of the window and be able to shrink down the log view.

I hope to be able to make changes like this myself but I have not had time to look at the code yet to see what it would take. I have programmed in C++ many years ago but for the last couple of decades I have been doing Java and more lately have been doing Objective-C and Swift for mobile apps.

I found the independent window option and it seems to work fine. One strange thing that has happened and I don't know how I did it is that the Ekos window is now a tab in the main kstars window. I don't mind it being that way but I'm not sure how I did it.

I was wrong about it not being the location. I had my Longitude in as a positive number instead of a negative one. Now the data looks much better.

Eric Vickery replied to the topic 'Kstars Say Sun is up in the middle of the night' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

I don't think it is location. I checked that multiple times just to make sure.

I will post a screen shot later today.

It is currently 12:22AM local time and when I start kstars it shows the Sun being up in the sky. It says the Rise Time is 3:57PM and Set Time is 5:57PM. What setting do I have wrong that can cause this?

There's no way to build it from one of the Xcode targets? I don't need the dmg, just the app but with all the libraries included in the bundle.

Eric Vickery replied to the topic 'Ekos on Mac OS X ?' in the forum. 3 weeks ago

Another question.

The project built fine and I can run it on the machine I built it on but if I copy the app to my other machine it doesn't run because it is missing libraries. How do I go about getting it all bundled up so it will run on another machine? BTW I chose the Xcode option in the script.

Fist off I would like to say thank you for everyone's hard work. I haven't been using it very long but kstars is great and all the effort put in to make it work on OS X is much appreciated.

Now on to my question. I got kstars to build using Jamie's script but I want to build again using the latest code do I have to run the script again or can I just do a pull from GitHub on the kstars repo?
