We'll move the settings to the trains, but there is a lot of work to do. Also, now most of the settings are global so there are retained regardless of train or even profile.

Which focus setting should be saved for each train? Let's start with a small important set of settings then we can extend this later.

That worked, thanks. But I sure wouldn't expect users to know that :D

Well, for me it didn't work and create even more lines :-)
But I just updated with today's version and it's working now.

Per-train focus settings are now in master. Please test and check if it is OK. We'll then move to other modules.

I just pulled the latest git, and now when I start up Ekos, all the controls on all the tabs are grayed out, until I change to a different optical train and then change it back.

It's not a showstopper, but it is inconvenient. :)

Never mind. I made the mistake of doing a build without a clean first. Did a clean build, and it's working properly now.

Nothing to see here. Move along. :)

Thanks for the testing! Next KStars is due on 29th and we would appreciate all the testing we can get for the beta now!

I am testing latest OSX beta (Build: 2022-09-17T18:07:01Z). It seems that it does not like duplicated drivers...

I wanted to check dual camera setup with simulators (if not simultaneous, at least alternative). I created a driver alias of the CCD Simulator driver and named it 'CCD Simulator_2'.

I then added it in a profile as Aux1 (since there's no other option right now) and CCD Simulator as main CCD camera. The result was that the Optical Trains interface stopped working. It did not appear when connecting drivers, and when called, it was blank, and it closed the app when clicking the '+' button to add a train.

This also happened when modifying an existing profile with just one camera when adding the alias as Aux, not just with new profiles.

I guess it is easy to reproduce. If you need any more info, just let me know.

Thanks for your time, and regards from Barcelona.

3.6.1 on OSX
I have added an additional train. From the sequence window, you don't know which train is what. It would be good to have another column to show that info.
