Do I understand right that you're trying to use the generic EKOS mount modeling system for a 10micron mount ?
As I see it the EKOS mount modeling system is a generic system that augments the pointing of a mount. Any mount.
A 10micron mount however has a built-in modeling system, far superior to what EKOS has (because fi. it uses the absolute encoders to model things like sag and mirror flop and also corrects for air pressure and air temperature).
The EKOS mount modeling system currently does not program that 10micron internal modeling system.
That said the EKOS mount modeling system should of course work. But I do not recommend to use it on a 10micron mount, I recommend to use its superior internal modeling system.
If you want to continue with the EKOS mount modeling system I have to defer to others here on this forum. I hope they can help you further.
If you want to program the 10micron internal modeling system then you have several options of which 2 work on Linux today (that I know of) : Either use the 'Alignment' tab in the 10micron INDI device driver by manually adding plate solved coordinate results. I have used this to make a model myself once. Or get MountWizzard version3 or later to automate the whole thing. I now only use MountWizzard together with a local installation of astrometry.net and the astrometry-api-lite interface to it that offers the same interface as nova.astrometry.net . Sadly MountWizzard v3 is not released yet publicly, and the repo still only has 2.x branches. The good news is that the MountWizzard author is working on a new version.
