Do All Ekos Moduals Work in Simulator Mode? was created by werper
In order to better learn Ekos, I've started using the Simulator. I'm running a CCD Sim, Telescope Sim and Guide sim - chosen in order to model the three pieces of equipment I actually own. The Camera module seems to work well, as does the Focus Module (without an auto-focuser, as I do not own an auto-focuser, but the Focus Module is still just as useful focusing manually). The Align module captures an image but the offline solving (I have the ANSVR catalog downloaded and installed and the server running) does not seem to work - it is pointed at 127.0.0.1:8080. In the Guide Module, autoguiding calibration is rejected with the report: "Star Drift is too short" which does not entirely surprise me since the guide image is the same every time and the stars of course never move, but then that begs the question: why have a Guide Simulator then? In short, only the Camera and Focus modules seem to work in Simulator mode. Is this normal, or am I doing something wrong/missing a piece to the puzzle?
