StelalrMate App Video Tutorial #45251
Hello Jasem. This looks promising, I took a break from StellarMate/EKOS earlier this year after a series of unstable builds on the Mac, which are hopefully resolved now, I'm ready to try again. Was very much hoping for a native app too, looks like it's here.

How stable is the app right now?

The App is still in Beta, but it mostly work for simple tasks. We will release KStars v3.3.7 soon with lots of fixes and improvements.

Thanks Jasem. And will the app work only with the Stellarmate licenced version of EKOS, or all versions?

Aaand...just bumping this thread.

I'm now finally getting KStars/EKOS working on my RPi4, v3.4.0 seems very stable thus far...just gotta wait for our months-long cloudy night streak to come to an end. I'm accessing through VNC Viewer right now, but would love to try a dedicated app. Will the StellarMate app work on all versions of EKOS, or just the licenced StellarMate versions? I'm very happy with my current RPi/EKOS install, reluctant to change to StellarMate just for the app.

Would be happy to pay for the app to get tablet-friendly interface. Access via VNC on tablet works fine, but it's a bit clunky, clearly still favours access via a computer.

I would be very happy to be a beta tester for the app, I have some recent experience with iPad app testing.

Hello,
You need a fully licensed and paid for SM OS I’m afraid... :(

Stellarmate OS on Raspberry pi4b
Skywatcher EQ8 pro, on steel pier
Takahashi FSQ85 & Meade 8” SCT (de-forked)
Starlight Xpress SXVR H18, SXVR M25c, Lodestar x2 Guide Camera
Pegasus Ultimate Hub V2 for all USB & Power
Pegasus focus motors on both scopes

OK, thought so. I actually do have SM subscription, but back when I bought it, KStars was in the middle of a very unstable set of builds using the Mac interface, and I gave up on it. Used SGP for most of 2019, but giving KStars another go, directly installed on my RPi4 (not via StellarMate) and I'm very impressed. Accessing through VNC, not the Mac app (I couldn't bear to go there again!!), and life is good.

So just wondering if I could use my SM membership to try again, but using my current install on RPi4? Don't want to start from scratch after many hours of compiling.

I would be happy to pay for the SM app, I understand Jasem needs to make a living off this for all the time he puts in; my suggestion really is for him to set up the app as a paid item for exactly this reason.
