Use Scheduler on-board Stellarmate? #51616
Has anyone gotten the scheduler to work on-board the Stellarmate (connecting via VNC)? I spent all day last Sunday trying to get it to work; instead I finally found that running EKOS scheduler on a remote PC would work instead. I can run that way OK, but I expect I may have occasions where I prefer to run the Stellarmate autonomously without a remote PC steering it. All other functions that I tried seemed to work, if I recall correctly: imaging, plate-solving, running the mount.

Perhaps related: I noticed in the profiles drop-down on the scheduler tab none of my profiles were listed, just "default profile". Just to be clear, I'm not talking about profiles I had on the remote PC, I had several profiles on-board the Stellarmate and none were listed.

I'm using a Stellarmate gadget bought from a dealer, updated to StellarmateOS 1.5.1 I downloaded from Jasem's site and burned to the SDcard a couple of weeks ago. I have not done any updates to the stock download; maybe I need to do that?

thanks,
Aaron G.

Hello and welcome to INDI forums. The profiles only list those created on the same machine. But what issue did you have running it on StellarMate? Make sure that you create a LOCAL profile on StellarMate and use that. As far as Ekos is concerned, everything is local (when you connect via VNC).

Thank you for your help.

Sorry, I guess I wasn't clear enough previously. I was doing just as you suggested: I did have profiles on my remote PC, and I had separate profiles on the Stellarmate. I tried to allow the Stellarmate to operate autonomously by connecting through VNC to set up its scheduler. However when I did so the profiles on the Stellarmate did not show on the Stellarmate scheduler profile drop-down, only "default profile".

However last night I tried again to make sure I had not done something wrong. This time it worked as expected: the profiles on the Stellarmate showed in the scheduler profile drop-down, and when I ran the scheduler it performed as expected.

I'm not sure what had gone wrong - perhaps the first time I tried something had not been properly initialized, perhaps I needed to reboot, I don't know. Any way it is working now!

Thank you again for your help.
