Yes, I have to change the offset to avoid ending focussing prematurely. (I always change it to 500)

Hello cl330b,
It is certainly possible using a local indi server connecting to the local camera and connecting a remote mount via a remote indiserver at the same time.
instructions are provided at www.indilib.org/support/tutorials/159-in...ultiple-devices.html
You just have to connect from kstars to the local indi server on the loopback (127.0.0.1) ip address as if you are connecting a remote indi server.
I use this method always to connect multiple instances, you can even run multiple indi servers on the same host, using different port numbers.

Jurgen Kobierczynski replied to the topic 'Thanks for INDI/Ekos/Kstars' in the forum. 3 weeks ago

Hello to all,

here a word from me too. Now after 3 years of use this tread might be a good place to thank you all.

I remember the problems with my workflow 3 years ago: I wanted to start using off-axis-guiding to enable long exposures to combat differential flexure. Available autoguiders were not sensitive enough so I had to use an USB connected guiding camera, and the USB limitations forced me to use USB extender cables. These USB extender cables worked but I had lots of connection losses. Looking for another solution without having to buy and place a laptop outside near the telescope, I tried using an USB server, but this solution failed big: the usb-network drivers crashed my laptop multiple times, and it did not worked with USB-cameras at all! ASCOM was not a solution either due to USB requirement.

Then I discovered INDI. It allowed me to monitor the capturing process from my seat behind my desk. Now having a "complete" remote controlled system I can testify what a difference it is. Streamlined it will reduce your setup time and have less frustrations. The INDI/Ekos project has undergone big improvements in the 3 years I've used it.

Surfing on the Internet I saw a lack of usage videos. It gave a false impression of Ekos as a small fringe project, so I decided to correct it by uploading some full usage videos. Hopefully this will help spreading adoption of Ekos/INDI too.

Thanks!
