Ok I have used last without problem ( git from 27 september )
search difference in two celestrongps.cpp ( 27 september and today ) with diff command.

At this point I revert line by line, and test ( compile, connect ..ecc )

The offending part, is:

+    char sop;
+    INDI::Telescope::TelescopePierSide pierSide = PIER_UNKNOWN;
+    char psc = 'U';
+    if (driver.get_pier_side(&sop))
+    {
+        // manage version and hemisphere nonsense
+        // HC versions less than 5.24 reverse the side of pier if the mount
+        // is in the Southern hemisphere.  StarSense doesn't
+        if (LocationN[LOCATION_LATITUDE].value < 0)
+        {
+            if (fwInfo.controllerVersion <= 5.24 && fwInfo.controllerVariant != ISSTARSENSE)
+            {
+                // swap the char reported
+                if (sop == 'E')
+                    sop = 'W';
+                else if (sop == 'W')
+                    sop = 'E';
+            }
+        }
+        // The Celestron and INDI pointing states are opposite
+        if (sop == 'W')
+        {
+            pierSide = PIER_EAST;
+            psc = 'E';
+        }
+        else if (sop == 'E')
+        {
+            pierSide = PIER_WEST;
+            psc = 'W';
+        }
+    }
+
+    LOGF_DEBUG("latitude %g, sop %c, PierSide %c",
+               LocationN[LOCATION_LATITUDE].value,
+               sop, psc);
+    setPierSide(pierSide);
+

..removed this part work ok, please add other control.

P.S.
In reality it remains one "[ERROR] Serial read error: Timeout error " at the beginning .. this has been present for a long time (I remember that I wrote it in a message a long time ago) fortunately this does not create problems.

Bye.

I not have read all thread, report only my issue ( solved ) with calibration.
I have Celestron GPS mount and in indi mount options I have "absolutely" to set "Use Pulse Cmd" off
if this option is on ...not calibrate.

Try it if it's for you too .. I repeat, I did not read the whole thread, in case you're talking about something else ... excuse my intrusion.

Bye.
