Thanks Rob looking forward to the update. Other than that small niggle its a great bit of software.

2: For anyone reading the first post I now really love the alignment solver in ekos. I did two things one was discover my collimation of the scope was slightly off after recent transportation which wasn't helping. Secondly I set up the astrometry.net solver locally and downloaded all the data files. Now it runs offline and is 100 times as fast.

3: Havent found a joystick driver for OSX. May need to write one myself thinking of using a bluetooth joypad like this amzn.eu/cPJNZTs

Thanks for the reply I'm happy to help debug if I can. I have noticed running

./indiserver -vv ./indi_canon_ccd

2018-03-22T20:43:37: startup: ./indiserver -vv ./indi_canon_ccd
2018-03-22T20:43:37: Driver ./indi_canon_ccd: pid=15609 rfd=3 wfd=6 efd=7
2018-03-22T20:43:37: listening to port 7624 on fd 4
2018-03-22T20:43:37: Driver ./indi_canon_ccd: sending <getProperties version='1.7'/>

2018-03-22T20:43:37: Driver ./indi_canon_ccd: Number of cameras detected: -4.
2018-03-22T20:43:37: Driver ./indi_canon_ccd: read <message device='' name=''>

Gives me that output and camera is not detected at all. But from within Ekos the camera connects fine, so it must be something simple, possibly setting or disabling PTP mode?! Ekos asks about it when connecting command line version doesn't mention PTP at all. Would be great to have even a workaround. Frustratingly I can make my camera and mount work individually but not at the same time..

BG- Using OSX with High Sierra 10.13.3, NEQ6 with EQ direct cable, Canon 450D, ZWO ASI120MC

1: When I hit start INDI in Ekos using the local server it says Eqmod driver failed. I can bypass this by starting a remote server in terminal with >> ./indiserver -vv ./indi_eqmod_telescope ./indi_asi_ccd
All was fine until I tried to use my Canon DSLR which connects fine using the Ekos built in server but fails with the command line one. I'm sure if it works on the terminal app it should be possible to make it work in Ekos with some knowledge?

2: I am used to aligning manually by centring a few stars with the controller this takes 5 mins. Can Ekos allow me to manually align with a list of stars in the same way? I have tried the solver but with the ZWO it fails 95% of the time .

3: Is there already a driver for remote hand controls bluetooth or similar?

Many thanks!

Brilliant thank-you! I missed that at the start and all my google searching only threw up those manual install instructions on github. Working now perfectly :)

Sorry I wasn't clear enough in my explanation I'm running on a mac entirely. Its all connecting to the local server started via Ekos. The instructions are just written for a RPI but no PI is involved in the setup. I followed this information github.com/jamiesmith/kstars-on-osx but cant seem to get it working.

I have a few rpi's kicking around I hadn't considered it as an option to be honest.

On osx I have brew but there is no gsc package so I have to install it manually unless I've missed a packaged version somewhere.

I cant seem to get this working. I've used the RPI instructions compiled gsc, moved the files around as the guide says set up the GSCDAT path. The path shows up when I query with printev.

When I open kstars and try to use the ccd simulator it just shows fuzz and the ccd simulator info says [ERROR] Got no stars, is gsc installed with appropriate environment variables set ??

Not sure how to debug this further? Any suggestions?
