steve created a new topic ' Phd2 guide after meridian foip' in the forum. 6 hours 15 minutes ago

Hi everyone
After a flip and realignment, phd2 does not restart. Hitting guide manually causes a recalibration which while is needed for the internal guider, is not necessary or desirable for phd2.
The workaround is to stop and restart phd2 manually and restart it from within rather than from wood.
Anyone else finding this?
Cheersnd clear skies,
Steve

steve created a new topic ' good and bad session' in the forum. 17 hours 53 minutes ago

H everyone
Our Windows to Ubuntu migration is going well and we have had some nice shots from ekos.

I'ts difficult to know what we're doing wrong. Last night we had a crash (kstars disappeared from the screen), a failed meridian flip (could not solve on the other side of the meridian) and after the failed flip, restarting the guiding resulted in PHD2 being instructed to re-calibrate a previous -good-calibration.
Otherwise, we obtained a good set of frames of m57 and m20.

I've put the logs here:
drive.google.com/open?id=1hRe12w3rZA7KBjR_VeutuUfmedlMCpsl
If anyone has the patience and goodwill to have a look and tell us what we're doing wrong we would really appreciate it.

TIA and clear skies,
Steve

steve created a new topic ' ekos window focus' in the forum. yesterday

Hi everyone
I've a feeling this maybe an OS issue rather than an ekos issue but is it possible tor the ekos window to behave as a window which can move behind kstars and clickable to focus rather than an always-on-top toggle?
TIA,
Steve

steve replied to the topic 'Add settle down time after auto guiding start or resume' in the forum. yesterday

Hi
My solution is that instead of setting the settle in Guide here:


...instead add the settle time to the Delay in Capture:

Hi everyone
I find the pause after dither in the guide module works fine with the internal guider. With PHD2, I add a wait to the capture instead. I think that amounts to the same thing (?).

Hi. I'm not sure if this is the same thing but even if you can zoom easily, it's not possible to focus:

steve replied to the topic 'indi-eqmod always shows side of pier: WEST' in the forum. 4 days ago

Ah, ok. So it matters where Dec is pointing too? If I slew so the telescope is on the east side of the pier, the Dec has to be pointing west for the pier side to return correctly?
TIA

Hi everyone

Un-park and slew so that the telescope is on the west of the pier:

steve@steve-ubuntu:~$ indi_getprop *.TELESCOPE_PIER_SIDE.*
EQMod Mount.TELESCOPE_PIER_SIDE.PIER_WEST=On
EQMod Mount.TELESCOPE_PIER_SIDE.PIER_EAST=Off

Slew so that it is on the east:
steve@steve-ubuntu:~$ indi_getprop *.TELESCOPE_PIER_SIDE.*
EQMod Mount.TELESCOPE_PIER_SIDE.PIER_WEST=On
EQMod Mount.TELESCOPE_PIER_SIDE.PIER_EAST=Off

This is playing havoc with the guiding: log attached

Any help most gratefully received,
TIA, Steve

Hi
Unfortunately, it pixelates before reaching a suitable size for a Bahtinov. Is there a way to get it to scale?

How about buiding the git to /usr/local? Are there path and env variable problems?
