Tom created a new topic ' manual filter wheel or filter drawer option' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

Hi,

I am hoping Kstars can add manual filter wheel or filter drawer option for those who doesn't have EFW.

1. Manual Filter Wheel is used when we have a filter wheel that is not computer controlled, but
still want to have the benefit of the sequencing, file naming, and FITs headers found within EKOS.
2. We may setup the Manual Filter Wheel just like a normal filter wheel in the Filter Setup dialog in EKOS.
3. Whenever a filter change is requested a dialog box will pop up asking us to manually change the filter.
4. This dialog will pause the sequence and any other actions currently taking place until "OK" has been
clicked.

Hope developer can consider this seriously.

Regards,
Tom

BUMP! No one really support this? Even SGPro or APT already has this option for non EFW user.

Yes. I 2nd that! Kstars seems very stable in internal guiding and dithering as well.
No problem on my K5IIs also.
Thanks.

But before the new release of Kstars, both EKOS and PHD2 works fine in dithering. Now no more. :(

Hi Knro,

Is it possible to add manual filter wheel or filter drawer.option into EKOS? For an example when one filter finish capture, EKOS will prompt a dialog box and ask us to change filter and press "OK" to continue for another set of exposure.

This is maybe useful for those user without EFW.

Regards,
Tom

Is this means that the Ekos & PHD2 dithering issue is solved?

I still think that cable still play a very important role in transmitting data without failing. :)

try to connect the mount using USB cable and see any miracle happen? Pulse guiding either doing great with USB or RS232. :)

Now you can try my way of guiding. I am also having the same mount and ASI120MC for guiding.
1. under profile editor, guiding set to internal
2. Under Guide tab, choose via EQmod moun and bin to 2x2
3. under guide option page, follow my setting in attached photo.
4. Please remove ST4 cable!!!!!!!

Are you using USB to connect to the mount? I am doing that as well.

Good luck!

Any ideas on how to reproduce this reliably? I don't really use PHD2 so I don't know. Can this be reproduced with the simulators?


Hi Jasem,

I have done the simulator test right after I found out this issue, but simulator dithered flawlessly in PHD2. But it is opposite when real hardwares connected.

I also can confirmed that the dithering between EKOS and PHD2 is having issue after upgrading. Since both the EKOS and PHD2 also upgraded recently. So, Can't really figure out which one is causing the issue.

I can hardly get the internal guider up and running all the times. Until I found out PHD2 is the right choice for my mount, also AZ-EQ5GT.
In internal guider, i always get unstable and high RMS. But in PHD2, I always get beautiful RMS with less than 0.5 for my mount. Really can see the differences.
