Is this going to be pursued, if so I’m willing to assist in anyway I can. Do know that I know nothing about coding but could make my machine accessible via the Net for development purposes.Thanks
Cool that it works for you.
I have not found the cause for Latitude roundings (like your 23.9 to 24.0) . I saw it only in EKOS, and could not reproduce in DCD.py . (<a class="bbcode_url" href="http://dcd.py" target="_blank" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer">dcd.py</a> did not round)
Terry Platt from Starlight Xpress Ltd kindly sent us this source code that he used when developing the M26C. It was written for a PowerBasic compiler.
I hope it helps in adding support for the M26C to the indi_sx_ccd driver.
Has been fixed in PR github.com/indilib/indi/pull/1296 which got accepted and merged to the master branch today. So expect it in the next INDI update.

Lead_weight wrote: So the unattended flip update just lets the 10Micron automatically perform it's own flip when the goto command is issued and the driver detects that unattended flip is on? In other words, is there anything the end user needs to set up or configure differently for the driver change that is coming?
For the record, flips had always worked for me in the past. I did have unattended flip turned on in the mount controller.
This new issue reported by Scott, I have been getting in version 3.5.0 as well where the mount attempts to flip every 4 minutes.
I seemed to think this was a time mismatch between KStars and the Mount. When I let KStars control the time everything works. But to be honest, I've not had my 10Micron out since the very first day of the 3.5.0 release, and I didn't spend much time looking into whether or not previous time issues could be remedied by not syncing time either way between the controller and KStars.

The Pull Request is merged into the master branch. This means that ultra high precision geographic coordinates are now part of INDI and will be available in the next build.
