@Khalid,

I succeeded to have a TimeOut Field an it seems to work.
Have a little bit more trouble finding out how to get telescope stratus but it's on the way.

After some tests it seems working well when I set the time slightly over the time required by OnStep (may test fiirmware is an Arduino Mega so is slow).
When I reduce the time, I get the timeout and after third trial it goes to abort
here the screenshot of the modified interface.
I will do more tests tomorrow and also try so have the entered values saved for later reuse.

Chris,

no everybody is programmer, myself I am really a nut in computer programming ...
I just try to survive :-)

I hope I can issue a pull request for that during next week.

It seems the change is already obsolete. see phabricator.kde.org/D18235

I think you must make it a check box because if not checked default Ekos settings are used is that a idea?

What do you mean with this "It seems the change is already obsolete"

Meridian Flip is njow wotking with Onstep, thanks to Wolfgang Reissenberger and some other that patched KStars.

Basically no more Timeout but rather chnaged the way meridian flip is triggered.
Now meridian flip is managed by the mount so it becomes independent from Capture.
It might be confusing on the first viewbecause now there are two places where stup can be done:
- in the Capture tab
- and in the mount tab
The mount tab has priority in the sense that if one sets the meridian flip in the mount tab it is executed even if no capture is running.

If one set the meridian flip in the Capture tad, then as soon the captue sequence is started, the settings are transposed to the Mount tab (Time and checkbox)

In the mount box there is additionally a countdown field that shows status of meridian flip right under the setpoint.

It needs a bit experimentation with it but it is working fine.

and Mount not set

Chris,

I cannot answer, I have no Mac.
But as far I can see on www.indilib.org/download/osx.html the latest update is from 2017, so I don't see grat chance for you to get a daily built.
Seems the dmg file is for KStars 3.0.0 not a 3.1.0

Sorry

Alain, All

The mac Version beta is available see for link Mac test users needed, Thanks to Rob.
The new code is in there so the coming week i will do a dry run.

@Genral question to OnStep users in relation to Guiding

Which Guiding program do you use?
And who use the ST4 connection versus Pulse guiding what are the experience with this.

Reason
I use yesterday the OnStep via pulsguiding
With the internal Guiding i was not able to get round stars
While with PHD i had more succes

Thank you,

A propos Guiding:
I don't have a CCD or Webcam suitable for imaging.
I found a refurbished Lacerta Mgen Autoguider that I connect via ST4 directly to OnStep.
