Just to say I really like what's been done with the Polar Alignment in this version ( 3.5.2 ) . The new green and yellow lines showing the ALT/AZ axes really help speed up getting a good alignment. Thanks!
I had downloaded 3.5.1 to my Mac early in Feb., and found the new libraw would work with my Canon CR3 files. But due to our winter weather only got a chance to try it with mount, imaging camera and ZQO guider tonite. I discovered the ZWO 'bug' right away (ugh!) and after re-starting the program a couple times,, checking cables and USB hub I was getting an error message of not finding the driver library. Finding this new 3.5.2 version tonite, and installed from the google link in the forrum, on my Macbook , I now get this error message: " Unable to find INDI Drivers directory: /usr/local/share/indi
Please make sure to set the correct path in KStars configuration" So, I need some help here, if this is a 'bug' in 3.5.2 or somehow INDI files were moved or deleted?
Also the update installs as 3.5.1 with no indication other than the install date this is a new version.
Thanks. This morning I found the 3.5.2 install was renamed in the Applications dir., since I kept previous versions. So re-named and opened the 'right' 3.5.2 and still got the could not find no indi directory' errors. I found the INDI directory 'boxes' unchecked in the 3.5.1 Indi menu under Options (there is nothing called "configurations" I could find. and rechecked them and both Canon M50 and ZWO (and mount now connect ok and work from the camera module in in 3.5.2. -at least in daylight. Will see if this is all true after the Indi /EKOS vampires come out after dark. I see there are some new features in the mount INDI panel for linking to a dome which took me a couple minutes to figure out where/how to turn that off since I don't have a dome and mount would not respond until that was turned off. Seems like that default should be for no dome... Onward into the dark...
No calibration prior to guiding is possible with KStars 3.5.2
The process stops after RA drifting. It never reaches DEC drifting.
I could complete the calibration with KStars 3.4.1 + KStars 3.4.2 + KStars 3.4.3 and could have a normal astro session with my 2 ZWO cameras
Have you ever used 3.5.0? The reason I ask is the big change in 3.5.0 was StellarSolver, and that can impact guiding and calibration in a big way if it isn't set up well for your setup. There is a stellarsolver setup for guiding in the guide options. If that's your issue, Rob's a better resource than me. In any case, could you retry and set a debug log with guide logging on, and perhaps I can see what's going on.
