Hi everyone
After today's update to stable, load and slew no longer work using offline astrometry
Online works fine.
Capture and solve however continues to work fine.
Can anyone help?
TIA

Hi,
I have just done that latest update and checked load and slew and it is working fine for me. I am using and NEQ6Pro with EQMOD. Try down sampling your image in the EKOS alignment options by about 6-8 and see if that helps. Also uncheck use scale and use position as sometimes this creates problems especially for the first solve of the night (well for me it has in the past).

The FITS file includes the wrong RA/DE coordinates. It indicates the mount as "Telescope Simulator" and it was not on Deneb for sure, it reports RA/DE at NCP position.

So that's the issue.

Hi. Thanks. Yes, that's it.
I just tried with the simulator and it DOES record the correct RA and DEC.

What could cause it not to record the coordinates with EQMOD?
The correct coordinates are displayed in EKOS (attachment) but are noit written to the fits header.
TIA

Looks like the Camera "snoop" property was not updated properly. Just go there (INDI Control Panel --> Camera Driver --> Options) and see Active telescope to EQMod Mount and save configuration so that it records from the EQMod mount.

Hi
Yes. All well now.
Thanks

** I've added [SOLVED] to the thread title. Do we do that here?

Hi. Sorry. Still not working.

The RA and DEC are always recorded as NCP in the fits header.Any ideas?
How can I make the fits record from EQMod?

Capture and solve and slew to target are working fine.

Ah, OK. Linux. Of course. Case sensitive:

EQMod Mount
but not:
EQMod mount

A case of rtfq.

And now the fits header takes RA and DEC values from eqmod.
Will test tonight under the stars tonight.

Cheers
