Thanks.. This brings up another question or aspect... Is there a standalone INDI Server Control Panel application to see all of the connections, etc..? I know there is something built into Ekos, but I'm looking for something more akin to one that's available for INDIGO Server application from Cloudmakers (software for the Mac)...
i have successfullyy compiled the Indi librairies, stellarSolver and Kstars using the bash scripts from Nou, thanks to him. I only faced an issue for the "Celestron" indi 3rd party driver the first time i tried, there were some missing dependencies in the script.
So the 3 drivers Eqmod, Gphoto and QHYCCD work very well for me up to now, with Kstars/Ekos even if i have not yet tested it in the field.
i have 2 points
I can't find the GSC source (for plate solving using Simulators), i'd like to compile it.
Do you know how to configure the raspberry to create automatically an Wifi Hotspot and start a VNC server, as Astroberry and Stellarmate do ?
SW 150/750P (Newtownien)- SW ED72/420 on HEQ5 pro using EqMod
ASI071 pro - CC Baader MPCC III (for newtownien)
Guiding with 60mm refractor and QHY5 II mono
Stellarmate with Kstars/Ekos on RPi4
2 I have built a full suite around RaspberryPi64 running KDE desktop. The built-in Network Manager allows me to create a hotspot automatically if the internet connection fails, and also to use Dolphin file manager to transfer files via GUI between the Pi and my Mac (or Linux or Windows box), on which I am using RealVNC viewer to log on to whichever of Internet or Hotspot is available. I can also leave the files on the Pi,( which is in an ArgonOne SSD enclosure which has integrated fan and a very good wifi performance without an external aerial) for transfer via Network cable or USB3 cable later.
I find this very flexible. On the Pi I am running either KStars or CCDCiel, with IndiStarter. When using CCDCiel I also use EQMODGUI (on above SourceForge link). I aso have CdC, HNSky, ASTAP, PHD2, Entangle (DSLR control), and Timeshift.
Now I need some decent skies!
If there is any interest I can describe this setupt better at length, but will be away on holiday for a while.
Thanks for the fast reply ; I prbly misunderstood - this is what happened
