I thought I'd posted before but apparently not.

Anyway, thanks azwing, I was going to work on a lot of what you've already done.

I do have one problem (OnStep Beta and Mega2560. USB connection) and current (as of yesterday) both your and regular INDI. It's that the longitude won't be set I"m at -97 20 16.00 Which turns into 262:39:44 in INDI. However, values above ~260 don't seem to work. I'm not quite sure why after looking at INDI and Onstep. Nor do negative values.

Examples, setting to 97:
[2018-02-06T22:43:30.197 CST DEBG ][ org.kde.kstars.indi] - LX200 OnStep : "[SCOPE] <setSiteLongitude> "
[2018-02-06T22:43:30.197 CST DEBG ][ org.kde.kstars.indi] - LX200 OnStep : "[SCOPE] CMD <:Sg097:00#> "

[2018-02-06T22:43:30.214 CST DEBG ][ org.kde.kstars.indi] - LX200 OnStep : "[SCOPE] <setSiteLatitude> "

Setting to actual location

Your work has been awesome, I started my own hacking on indi lib, then noticed this, and that you'd already done what I was working on. :)

There's one thing however that's not working, which is longitude with the latest off github (I saw no way to report issues there.) I'm at -97 longitude, and INDI/OnStep have an issue with that, both with the released one and with the latest one built before last night. (I think it included the parking fix.) At above about 260 degrees it seems to fail (-97 also fails) I've looked through both code bases and I can't see why. I did find some comment (not sure where) about it not doing it as an lx200 does.

I'm using a Mega 2560 with the beta version currently.

Another question, the EKOS Astrometry module, after Align has been selected will the mount model (with 3 points) work? (I assume it would.)
