That's true! But you know how those old proprietary programs are: basically impossible to change (IRAF I'm looking at you).

Anyway I'll write a short PowerShell script to rename the files adequately. Thanks anyway!

Theor created a new topic ' Ekos: choosing saved extension' in the forum. 3 months ago

Hello,
I use two programs to process the data I gather from KStars, both of them use a FIT extension and a single digit numbering (ex: Light_11.fit). KStars uses the MaximDL numbering and the FITS extension (ex: Light_009.fits).

On Linux, it's easy to use a sed script to change the extension and numbering system, but on Windows, a program like Ant renamer has to be used, which is cumbersome and wastes time at each acquisition.

I was wondering if an option to choose between the two extensions (fit / fits) and maybe also the two numbering systems ( _1 or _001) could be added in the control panel? Would that cause a lot of troubles?

Thank you Jasem. Following your answer I've ordered the camera, I should receive it in a couple weeks.

Should I forget to post my results, it will mean it all worked well!

Hi. Sorry if this question was already asked.

I'm currently using an Atik 414 for science imaging and an ASI-290MM for guiding.
However the FOV is very small and the astrometry rarely solves.
So I want to add an ASI-120MM-S attached to a 50mm scope for astrometry solving.

That means 3 cameras in the setup (although 1 only used for astrometry). Will this work with Ekos/INDI?

Thanks in advance!

It could be a workaround (although expensive), but a friend of mine has an AZEQ5 which is belt driven and the motors are just as loud... The nice thing with belts is a lower backlash though.

Anyway, I already have an effective software solution for the noise, and it costs nothing. I just hope I'll be able to do the same with INDI.

Yes, ASCOM/EQMOD does it so there must be a way on INDI.
I hope we can get this feature because unfortunately to me this is a deal breaker, I'm in a quiet area and the HEQ5 is way too noisy at max speed to use during the night with my neighbors sleeping all around.

Jasem, let me know if I can do something to help you with that. I'll be glad to beta-test the feature if needed.

Thank you for your answer. I tried this setting, it works but only for manual slewing, not the "goto" automatic slewing (when you click on an object in KStars and select EQMOD>Slew to target). It's still always at max speed.

I mean the same thing than post #4871 above from Kaczorek.

Hello Jasem,

I live in an apartment building and the goto speed of my HEQ5 at full speed is pretty noisy, so I'm used to changing it to a silent speed so it's doesn't bother my neighbors during the night.

With EQMOD, changing the goto speed is easy, there's a slider for that:

However I couldn't find a way to change it with the INDI EQMOD driver, which keeps me under Windows/Ascom. :(
I searched on Google and found this topic. Is this change request still under review?
