I have never seen a satellite trail that looked like that and it is unlikely since the amount of lateral movement would probably tear it apart. They usually appear as a single straight or dashed line.

Look for something much closer, such as a plane or balloon.

Phil,

I have no experience using a DSLR with INDI, however, are you using a camera lens or a telescope?

In the last week I have had two similar but probably related issues.

In the first I was using the scheduler and found after an hour of imaging I only had a single issue.
I quickly realised the counter had "stuck" and was overwriting the image each time.
My solution was to renumber each image after it was written and before the next was written.

The second was last night where I left the program to write 27 images but found only about half were there numbers from 8-23 only.
I can only assume it started at 8 wrote to 23 and then not sure. It showed 27 images had been written on the screen.

In both cases I had altered the "script" after it had been used for a previous object.
I can only assume that it is losing count of something when this is done.

Jasem,

Thanks that solved the problem, not the most obvious thing :)

I tried to extend the Ekos window today and the information window disappeared.

Does anyone know how to get it back?

I finally had a break in the cloud long enough to have another go at polar alignment.

Things seem to go wrong at the following line, where a slew should happen to take the second image, but no movement occurs.

Jim,

Thanks for the suggestion, I have updated my Profile.

I will try and get the log files soon, but when I looked at them earlier I could not see anything obvious.

I don't have any issues slewing other than Polar alignment.

It is for a Losmandy Gemini 2 controller but I cannot see how that would be an issue, if it reaches limits it beeps and is wasn't beeping and was nowhere near the limits anyway.

I do have a log but I cannot get it at the moment.

After a new build I now have a problem communicating with my Losmandy Gemini 2 controller.
The new /dev/serial/by-id link is not appearing however I tried connecting with /dev/ttyAMA0 and it does connect but then fails at handshaking.
Is this likely to be an INDI/Ekos issue or something else?

I may have some setting wrong but cannot determine what might be happening.

I go through the steps of trying the new Polar Alignment routine and it takes the first image and says it is slewing to take the second image but no mount movement occurs.

After a while I stop the process and the mount starts slewing to somewhere but I have no idea where it is tring to go as I have to stop it.

I have tried with the mount parked and unparked and have updated the builds a number of times but no change.

Jasem,

It seems to be sorted, I have manually added the new link and saved the configuration.
The main problem was I was not expecting it and it defaulted to the wrong link, and the scan did not work.

total 0
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13 May 22 15:25 usb-Arduino__www.arduino.cc__0043_557393232373519131A1-if00 -> ../../ttyACM0

So, I can see the links in the directory but it was looking at the wrong one and kept failing because it was already being used.

If I manually set the correct one will this be a permanent thing?

Is there a reason that the scan has stopped working?

I now have Ekos being found but the port handling has been altered in some fundamental way, I am no longer seeing ttyACM0 or ttyAMA0, just some long string /dev/serial/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxetc
I have enabled auto search but it still does not work.
I finally found that I can manually enter the actual port as /dev/ACMA1, but don't understan what has changed.
Is this a Raspberry Pi OS change or something to do with INDI?

Paul
