Hi!

I tend to use 2 different ASI filter wheels, one with 7 positions (for RGB and NB filters) and one mini, with 5 pos (for photometric filters). However, both are identified as ASI EFW.

Now, I have saved the configuration in the Indi window. And then when I switch filter wheel, it does not adapt to the correct number of filters. So right now, I have the mini with 5 filters - but in Ekos, I have 7 filters.. THat is less of a problem. But previously, when Ekos told med I had 5 and then I switched to the 7-pos filter, it did not update in Ekos so I could not use filters 6 and 7.

How do I handle this? I'd prefer to have 2 different equipment profiles for them.

Hi!

This is a really dumb question - but I can not find out how. I use my stellarmates on my local wifi net at home, but now I am going to a star party and need to use hotspot mode on them. But I just can not find out how I turn on the hotstopt mode on them....

Anyone can guide me?

Hi!

I just updated and upgraded to 3.5.9, and yes, this is much more useful to me :) even though the whole table does not fit the window, it's enough to be able to scroll to see the colums I want.
Thanks!

Hi Hy,

Thanks for the explanation. See two screenshots. It is possible to see the full ending time when maximizing the window - but not particularly smooth solution for me at least. I use these times quite a lot. And some (not few) of my targets have names like "MASTER OT J042609.34+354144.8" and similar, and it might be quite difficult to tell them apart, if there (like tonight) is a list with some 4-10 of these...

Hi!

I just burned a SM 1.7.0 64-bit image on an SD-card. Runs nicely. But: I can not change column width in Scheduler - which means it is diffficult (to say the least) to see when jobs ends, and thus to plan the imaging for the whole night. Is there something I can do about it, or is this a bug?

Hi!

Thanks. It seems that it turned up in the Control panel after a while (a few hours..?). Install without any problems after than.

Hi!

I just flashed a SM 1.7.0 32-bit image - and I see no option to install ASTAP (nor Teamviewer) in the Control panel. Am I missing something...?

Hi!

Is there a way to change the default extension to images from .fits to .fit? I have recently begun doing spectroscopy, and programs like ISIS seems to prefer .fit - and I'd be happy to be able to eliminate the step of mass renaming files after acquisition, is possible.

So if anyone knows if there is such an option and in that case where to find it. I'd be happy :)

Hi!
OK, so nothing else. Then there is something odd there because this happens AFTER alignment is successful and finished. I'll check the logs for next time it happens.

Hi!

Recently, when running the scheduler, I have several times noticed that after aligment, so that the object now is centred, the scheduler says it is "repositioning". However, nothing is happening - scope not moving - and this goes on for ever. Or rather, until I stop the scheduler and restart. 

What is this "repositioning" and why is it doing that after successful aligment...?

Hi!

I seem to have had some problems with meridian flips lately - intermittent. I do not have a log to show. But playing with it now in daytime I note that the HA given in Ekos, and subsequently the time to meridian flip, does not update when tracking. I have set up a scheduler job to expose to test the meridian flip, and from the moment the job starts to capture, both HA value and time to meridian flip stays stable.
I'm running Stellarmate 1.5.9, Kstars 3.5.7, updated recently but not today. 

In the log (the one produced now) I have lines like this: 
[2022-03-08T17:50:47.012 CET DEBG ][           org.kde.kstars.indi] - Losmandy Gemini : "[DEBUG] RES: <W>, lst 4.828764, ha -0.250125,

If the ha given there is HA, then that one updates regularly. 

Anyone recognize this?

Hi!

Great, thanks! Seems to work like a charm :)

Hi!
I'm trying to use the GPS NMEA to connect to my mobile phone as GPS device. However, when I start the module (GPS NMEA), it connects to the phone but says "no fix". Then when trying to refresh (I have set refresh period to 5 secs) it says "Failed to connect to.... connection refused". I am using Share GPS on my Samsung mobile. 

Anyone got advice on how to make it work?
