The answer is simple, with a nexstar remote you can't. The last driver published for this handcontroller is 4.21. This function was added with the Nexstar+
The trick is to use celestron remote handcontroler which emule the hand controller. It works fine with wine and linux.

Excellent. I checked it with the telescope simulator. It works perfectly.

Now we have access to kstars and stellarium object database. Awesome.

Thank you.

Hello everyone,

Sorry for the delay, I was not at home.

I made a quick video to show you what is the difference in altitude measurement with kstars/ekos and other program like cgps, xgps, ...
I hope this will help to understand my astonishment mostly if you are telling me that altitude is getting from the same source.

I precise that I'm using a gps module on my remote raspberry pi and for the video my rapsberry was outdoor.

For the device update, I think this append when gps is not fix already. I will made more test this evening.

Sébastien.

Hi Jasem,

I'm flying from bug to bug. Maybe it's time to open official bug reports :woohoo:
1. If altitude is read in the nmea line why altitude in indi gpsd driver is different from command line gps tool (at the same time)
2. 2 updates of gpsnmea later, the driver is still crashing. I think it's more than a build issue.
3. This is really weird. My mount is a Celestron CG5 and support time and location but GPS sync only Kstars, not my mount. This is the case only when I sync PC to device.
4. And the new one : when sync my CG5, the longitude is set to 0.0000E. Maybe, my mount doesn't like the 0 - 360° format of indi for longitude. Latitude and time are fine.

So for now, I think I found a third bug.

First : altitude with GPSD as reported earlier
Second : total crash of GPS NMEA driver. Memory issue ? https://pastebin.com/AZM60kZj

And new and last one. Using a GPS, a computer and my CG5 mount (NexStar driver) :
- Case 1, you sync device to computer then GPS will sync location and time in kstars but not for the mount
- Case 2, you sync computer to device then computer will sync location and time of the mount but this is not the GPS time and location

Ok, PPA update done. As you can see, longitude is correct and kstars is well sync to the geographic coordinate of my gps device.

But there is always a difference in the altitude or elevation value as you can see in the screenshot



indi_gpsnmea is always crashing (KStars detected INDI driver indi_gpsnmea crashed. Please check INDI server log in the Device Manager.)

Sébastien.
