Hi Wolfgang, thanks for your reply. I didn't set a target (but I launched manually a plate solve while still in parked position). Yesterday I didn't monitor the MF status in Mount tab until things got weird, but tonight I've tried again and in the beginning of the PAA process MF status was indeed "Status inactive (no target set)", but after the first slew, it went through the MF pending-running-done/failed loop like yesterday.

The relevant part of the log of yesterday:

Hi all, 

tonight I experienced also this problem. It was my first session with KStars 3.5.6 (PPA) after upgrading from 3.5.5. I have KStars + INDI on a Ubuntu Mate 20.04 x86_64 box, and use a AZ-EQ6 (eqmod) mount.

In my case, I run the PA assistant using the guide camera/scope for faster refresh (my imaging camera is a slow CCD), but this seems to have no effect over this issue. The PA assistant captures and solves the first image, then does the first slew. After this slew the UI went somewhat crazy, "Capture&Solve" grayed out and reenabled in a loop. In the Mount tab in Ekos the coordinates were "jumping" although the mount wasn't slewing. Then I noticed that it was reporting Meridian flip, pending, running. First thing I did after cancelling the PA was purge the configuration of eqmod and set it to the defaults (it also was updated along with KStars and some other INDI modules; in the past I once ran into problems with configuration files of updated drivers). Not to avail. Then, I disabled "Flip if HA>" (which I always had set to 2 deg) and re-run PAA and everything went as normal (as I read now that the other posters did as well). 

Before KStars 3.5.6, this never happened to me. I will try to retrieve logs later to see if they help.

Best Regards,
Sergio

Not a problem. Just needed to understand what these options really mean. Thank you so much for your assistance, Wolfgang!

Sergio created a new topic ' Why this scheduler job was skipped?' in the forum. 4 months ago

Hi, last night I had a session with Ekos Scheduler consisting of two jobs, "LionNeb" and "SoulNeb" (in that order). Both had twilight and >40º altitude constraints. Aborted job management was set to "immediate" (300s) and re-schedule errors was enabled. 

When the first one lowered to 40º alt, Ekos aborted the capture (as expected) but the second job was never started, instead, it proceeded with the shutdown process. I think that those are the relevant log lines:

My interpretation is that Ekos deals with the altitude constraint as a failed job so it tries to re-schedule it inmediately (as configured), delaying it to the next night. (In the log though, it seems that Ekos even scores the second job positively, but just didn't try to start it.)

I was trying to use the 'altitude constraint' as a condition for jumping to the next job, and 'immediate re-schedule' as a strategy for handling capture errors (like clouds messing the guiding/capture). In essence "stay with the same object even if problems arise until it falls too low, then try the next object". How should I do this?

Thanks in advance!

Hi nMAC,

I have my G2-8300FW working with the last packages available from PPA stable repo:
indi-full (1.9.2~202109141834~ubuntu20.04.1)
indi-mi (1.8~202109141612~ubuntu20.04.1)
libmicam (1.0~202109131857~ubuntu20.04.1)

Also at least with the previous versions:
indi-full (1.9.1~202106280946~ubuntu20.04.1)
indi-mi (1.8~202107070054~ubuntu20.04.1)
libmicam (1.0~202011211549~ubuntu20.04.1)

What I get though is a timeout in the first connection (while the filter wheel is homing), but immediately it connects OK. This was happening from a while ago ( see github.com/indilib/indi-3rdparty/issues/425 ).

Not sure if that helps.
Regards

Same behavior for me.

Double click on a scheduler job for editing, then click on "Fill coordinates with sky map center" button, then click the checkmark button --> job coordinates are still the old ones (checked by double clicking the job again).

If I edit the RA or DEC fields after clicking "Fill coordinates with sky map center" and before clicking the checkmark button then the coordinates are indeed updated on the job.
