I've been using StellarMate for a few months.  It's always worked for me... but had some quirks which I kept having to deal with... auto-focus, meridian flips, polar align, etc.  However, I updated my RPi with 1.5.8 and everything worked right away!  I had a great session last night and used align, plate solve, auto focus, guiding (PHD2), and meridian flip... and everything worked perfectly.  I'm going to try the internal guiding tonight.  I would like to use it to simplify my environment.

Thanks to the Stellarmate team... nicely done!

Nice! I'm running the same version. Hope to get it all ready before Wednesday May 26th (total lunar eclipse out here).

I've found one issue which I don't understand -
So, I'm tinkering away with an Arduino next to the Raspberry Pi, in order to drive a servo and a relay, and that's all sort-of OK so far
I can run that on the StellarMate via VNC,
I use VNC on my laptop to tunnel through the hotspot into the Stellarmate,
I can edit the /usr/share/indi/<my device>_sk.xml setup for the indiduino device,
I run KStars and then EKOS on the Stellarmate, and
I can configure the indiduino <my device> settings in EKOS, and
the switch switches and the servo serves, etc. 

HOWEVER then when I tunnel back out and run KStars and EKOS on my laptop, using the remote StellarMate as an indi-server, I cannot add <my device> to my virtual observatory. 

What am I doing wrong here?
Do I need the <my device>_sk.xml on my local laptop as well, and if so, where ?
It seems strange to me that the client needs to have the configs for the server ?!?

Cheers, Otte
