We saw this before with other mount drivers as well and there it was due to the park data file having become corrupt. Try deleting the .indi/ParkData.xml file, start KStars and Ekos and finally set the park position anew.

Hi Jasem, does it make any difference to ekos / indi if the latitude is displayed as -3° or as 357°? It seems to try and default to 357°, and I change it
cheers
Terry

Not sure why it's crashing on park. Try to put this in a browser:

What response do you get back?

Run the driver via gdb in the terminal:
sudo apt-get install libc6-dbg indi-qhy-dbg
gdb -ex "set follow-fork-mode child" -ex run --args indiserver -v indi_starbook_telescope indi_simulator_ccd

In Ekos, create a new profile, turn off Auto Connect and add CCD Simulator + Starbook. Set mode to remote and leave it to localhost. In Logs, make sure to select Verbose Logging to File, check INDI + Mount. Click Start then in INDI Control Panel --> Starbook --> Options, make sure "Driver Debug" is checked. Then go back to Main Control Panel and press "Connect". Park the mount and Check the terminal to see if the driver crashed, if it did, type backtrace and paste the trace here. Also attach the KStars log file.

odd.... the debug isn't suppose to fix anything, it's just to record backtraces in case of crash.
