By opening "What's interesting" tool, Kstars opens a second window. The problem seems to come from that. By closing and reopening the tool, no more second window and normal behavior. :

I noticed another bug with the "what's interesting" tool. No crash this time but a weird behavior and a little embarrassing. The window of this tool opens normally, but as soon as you click on the map, it goes in the background of the main window, as shown in the video. After a few manipulations, I manage to put "what's interesting" in the foreground, but some buttons (those below) are unusable. I close the windows of "What's interesting", I restart "what's interesting", and there, miracle, everything works normally ...

I'm on Ubuntu 16.04.3 64 bits, with Gnome-Shell. I will test with KDE or Mate to see if I have the same behavior ...

Eric Magnien created a new topic ' [Kstars] Bug with calculator tool' in the forum. 5 days ago

Hello!
I need to calculate the ephemerides for the year 2018. I tried with the calculator built into Kstars, but it bug. I would like to know if it comes from me, my computer, or if you also find the same thing?

That's how I proceed: In the menu bar, tools> calculator, then in the calculator module, I choose solar system, conjunctions. I set the dates as of 1st January 2018 00:00 until 1st January 2019 00:00. I choose between the planets and the moon, a gap of 10 degrees max, I leave conjunction and I ask to calculate. From there, every time, the software crashes completely and I have to restart it ...

I specify that I have the latest PPA version of Kstars (updated every day ...)

Eric Magnien created a new topic ' Configure ekos for camera lens use' in the forum. 8 months ago

Hi, I'm trying to test a new hardware configuration: I brought out all my old photographic lenses Minolta to install them in front of my camera instead of my telescope. However in EKOS, the configuration of the mount tab is oriented telescope (aperture / focal length), not really photographic as that proposed in the tool field of view of kstars. Would it be possible to add the ability to inform only the focal length if only I use a camera lens? This would be useful for the alignment module.
Thanks!

Eric Magnien replied to the topic 'What would you like to see in Ekos in 2017?' in the forum. 11 months ago

I would like to be able to use ekos scheduler and prepare in advance my sessions of acquisition of images. Being nomadic, I can create my sequences only in the field, with all the equipment installed. The ideal would be to be able to create them at home, simulating my hardware setup. But maybe it is already possible?

The developers of siril found the solution: a space had slipped in front of the file names. Sorry for the false alert! :oops:

It's incomprehensible ... I use the same version of SIRIL, it loads without problem my sequences of images of January 7 and refuses to open those of the 15 ... However, each image can be opened individually without problems . My computer is haunted?

Hi, I just found that I can't open in SIRIL fits images sequences I made last night. I can open individually each image, but not the sequence. To bypass the problem, I had to use the image conversion tool in SIRIL.
Fits images are available at this adress : drive.google.com/open?id=0B1ONEH30Ic8EdjlJeUZsdzZCdXc

Eric Magnien created a new topic ' Alignment issues' in the forum. 11 months ago

Hi all
Last night I tested the EKOS alignment module again. For several sessions I have seen the same problems:
- The "load & slew" function always fails to resolve after three minutes.
- Even after activating wcs, none of my images will display the wcs info. Still, "capture & solve" works perfectly and updates the rotation.
- Maybe it's linked, but "meridian flip" does not trigger when the meridian passes.

I did the last test on a new installation. Kstars-bleeding comes from ppa, astrometry.net of repos. Initially, I used the astrometric data from the repositories, then index-4200-4219 files that I downloaded a few months ago.
I activated all debug logs, took screenshots of my settings.
I really need help, when I see that something is not working, I tend to "tinker", and most of the time, it works less well ...

My setup: DMK CCD, SXLodestar, SX Wheel, EQ6 & EQMOD, Joystick

My screenshots : flic.kr/s/aHskSyn8tJ
Attachments : my main logs + astrometry.cfg

P.S.: The new installation allowed me to remove the bug from the Lodestar that does not connect the first time. There must be an old configuration file somewhere that is problematic to my main installation. A little housekeeping in perspective ...
Thank you in advance
Astronomicalement !
Eric
