INDI Library v1.7.6 Released. (27 Feb 2019)
First release of 2019 comes with quite a few new drivers across the board along with significant performance improvements to INDI camera and live streaming performance. Many drivers received significant updates to improve performance & stability, while a few were re-written from scratch to be in line with INDI standards. Here are some of the highlights:
Horizontal coordinates as input in EKOS
Horizontal coordinates as input in EKOS was created by magnargj
However, I've not been able to find an efficient way of giving altitude and azimuth as Goto input in EKOS, except by right-clicking on the sky map which isn't very efficient and accurate. EKOS seems to be set up only to receive celestial coordinates, which of course makes sense for looking at celestial objects, but my artificial star will be stationary with respect to the ground. We will be pointing the laser at several locations in the sky, so it will be necessary to change direction of the telescope as well.
Are there any ways of giving horizontal coordinates as input for goto in EKOS?
Hints will be highly appreciated! Maybe I just missed some functionality?
