If you were also running PHD I think you could have tried that alignment tool right? Not sure if the Linux version has it as well actually.

It totally does, I would give that an install asap. ;) It has a similar alignment tool and is very robust.

Thanks, hopefully I will get another clear night within the next 7 days before I go back home. I'll give this PHD stuff a go, watching the videos now.
However, I need to/must find a USB cable somewhere here as all my cabling is nicely done and cannot be undone without major surgery... oh damn !!!

Can this PHD thing connect to a remote indi server? I doubt I'll be able to connect the equipment directly to my laptop.

I don't know if you use stellarmate. If so, PHD is included in it. It's on the desktop...

Yes it works fine with INDI (that is, when I tried it and it wasn't broken ;) ). But you can totally use it as a stand-alone piece of software just to align the mount and then continue with EKOS. I think you need to input the INDI port as well (7624 I believe from the top of my head) as configure EKOS to use PHD. In pHD make sure the server option is checked (menu item).

Trying as a stand alone software, on connection to the indi server to access the QHY5 the program hangs...

Mmm, so there might be an issue with the INDI server configuration maybe? Maybe try a restart of the system with Kstars on it, after you selected it to use PHD as an external guider. You also configured PHD to present it as a server right?
