Well I wish someone had replied to this topic and told me it was a bug in Kstars, and that it was being worked on, I see in the latest Kstars release the issue has been found and fixed, but I have spent three weeks wrestling with this assuming it was an issue with my kit and or GPS module, as the mount was slewing all over the place yet on the screen in Kstars it was showing correct slews...but time offset kept showing -12, in th end I ditched the GSP module deleted my profile and started again... ☹️☹️

So to update, I have to download the new image file and burn to a SD card all over again, so any settings I have on my stellarmate will be all lost, all my serial port manager settings, screen layout settings and so on, and I will have to star all over again....!!! Is this correct, does the updater within stellarmate not update to the newest version...??? Seems a bit ridiculous that after each update we Have to start all over again by burning a new image file.....

I’m not having trouble, as I don’t know where to look, for an updated version, ....like I say I am just updating it using the update tool from within the stellarmate OS, is that not correct....?.

Ok, got that, so in normal home position (scope up and weights down) what figures should I expect to see in the main control tab for RA/DEC...?

Hi,
I set the correct location for my backyard obsy, but I noticed each time I set up the longitude setting is different on settings screen compared to the main planetarium screes, see 1st image below

Secondly when I start my mount on home position, the DEC reading is always near to 90 degrees, 89 or so, but the RA i thought should be on zero for home...but it never is, see second image...

Any ideas of reasons for these discrepancies...??

AstroNerd created a new topic ' Where are settings saved....?' in the forum. 2 months ago

I had a issue with my set up, the telescope alignment got corrupted and the first slew was way out..every time I start my session.
So as I had a second SD card with full image installed of the system when it was working perfectly, I decided to put that in until I could pinpoint the issue.
But when I started up with the new image, that had the same alignment errors....so my question is when the alignment points are saved within the EQMOD driver, are they save in my case to the rpi or to the laptop controlling it.....as it seems that it must be the laptop, as I had the error on both SD cards.....is that correct..?

Well this is a weird one, took off GPS dongle and removed GPSD from my auxiliary items in user profile, and still when I start Indi it’s there in the tabs, which is really odd....and because of this it won’t let me change the setting to use info from Kstars instead of GPS....
So had to delete profile and create new one, and seems to have solved it, but now can’t use GPS dongle as it screws with time offset...

Ok, well I think I have found the problem, and it’s not to do with the recent Indi update, it’s the time offset in Kstars, each time I set it keeps defaulting to a -12 time offset which explains the issues, but when I change to 0 which it what it should be for me, it goes back to -12 .....any ideas, I am using a GSP module to get data, and am wondering if this is causing the issue....
