Michael, you mentioned you just added the commands for pulse guiding for AP mounts. Have you been using this?

I'd be happy to supply teamviewer access if a Mac works for you.

Another AP user monitoring with interest. I have a CP3 with the latest firmware. I have seen the two errors you are seeing
Error reading date from Telescope.
Failed to retrieve time format from device.

Jasem made some changes that eliminated the error reading the date. It still seems in my case the correct location and date/time are making it the mount.

I have yet to be outside to test guiding.

I built the latest OSX version this weekend, this error disappeared.
Error reading date from Telescope.

This one is still there.
Failed to retrieve time format from device.

Thanks David

Ok, thanks for the info on the tracking light, that's good news. I've verified that the computer/kstars loc/time is getting pushed down to the mount as I can view the loc/time on the mount keypad. Slews seen fine although I'm still inside "simulating" things. Would be nice to know if the error is "normal" or not.

I'm having the same problem with the failing translations...

Testing KStarts/Ekos/Indi under OSX and am very excited about the possibilities. I have a GTOCP3 with the latest firmware and am encountering the following two errors up connecting
my mount in Indi Server.

Error reading date from Telescope.
Failed to retrieve time format from device.

Subsequently I can control the mount but the tracking light is yellow and I'm pretty sure the date/time and possibly geo info isn't sync'd between mount and software.
I'm connecting to the mount after I've initialized the location and set the starting park position on the keypad. I assume it possible to send kstars/computer time/loc data to the mount or pull from the mount to use in kstars? Not sure where I would configure this?

KStars 2.8.7 OSX from the kde.edu page which I believe is Indi 1.5 but I'm not sure how to tell the indi version.

I'm a software engineer in a parallel life so I'd be happy to get additional information for you.. On the side I'm trying to build kstars/indi so I can take quicker advantage of updates.

Does anyone have any ideas for me?

Thanks David
