Hello,

I'm testing it now. The only issue that I have is that I cannot establish a connection to PHD2 but its server is running.
Any ideas?

Greetings

Hi Rob,
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

Jean Claude,

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.

Hy,
I didn't try 3.5.0 and I will report the result as soon I'll get the opportunity.
Thanks

Hy,
KStars 3.5.0 allows guiding as usual
Thus the bug appeared in beta KStars 3.5.2

OK. Thanks for checking that out.
Please point me to a log (guide debug logging enabled) with 3.5.0 successful and 3.5.2 failing.
I did try to recreate last night, but things worked for me.

Hy,
Here are the two logs : dl.free.fr/gcOmlR2ab
Please ask if more testing is needed

Those logs don't seem like the right thing.
When I unzip I get two very small binary files.
Do you have debug logging to file turned on for guide?

Thanks

Jean Claude,

Thanks for testing and I'm sorry there seems to be a guiding issue. I'm glad Hy got it narrowed down with you a little bit. I don't know everything that was changed in KStars recently since I was taking a break after getting StellarSolver working. Just a thought, maybe we should test if it works in 3.5.1. That might help to narrow it down a little more. I know that I forgot to include ZWO in 3.5.1, but it could still be tested if we could copy the right drivers and libraries that they depend upon from 3.5.2 to 3.5.1. Let me know if you would like to try and I can see if that would be doable.

Thanks,

Rob

Paul did the camera work after you played with it a bit, or is it still not connecting?

I am very curious as to why your settings were reset. The only way those messages would appear would be if all your settings were reverted to the defaults or if somehow your settings file got deleted completely. It doesn't matter which KStars you are using, the preferences file should be the same file and is still completely valid. I wonder if it had somehow got corrupted or deleted? The file is ~/Library/Preferences/kstarsrc

So I just tested this on my computer with simulators and PHD2 and it worked fine. I think I would need more details.
