As a follow-up...

The master-87 build (22-Jul) works for me - no crashes.... as soon as I tried with the 3.3.2 build, BOOM!

I am having the crashing issue with the fitsviewer enabled on windows... sometimes with it disabled... I was using V3.3.2 from the normal download....

When I use the nightly build (I tried tonight with kstars-master-87-windows-msvc2017_64-cl.exe ) & if fitsviewer disabled, the sequence works fine..

When I have finished tonight's sequence I may be able to test some more....

My mount is set to park at a custom position - I just hit the "Park" button in Ekos control...

Hi,
I have been using the CEM60 with INDI from the start... initial quirks were ironed out long ago.

Once GPS lock acquired, I fire up kStars & INDI - it is set to use the location supplied by the mount... works just fine...

Utilises a custom park position (set via the handset initially) at the end of a session....

I get the following message appearing in the status window of the Guide Tab in Ekos (kstars v3.1.0)

2019-02-04T22:35:09 Exposure failed. Restarting exposure...

My final images are 99% ok... but every so often there is a "bump" - not sure if it's directly related to the above or the aggressive guiding.

- I am using a Lodestar X2 guidecam, an Atik 16200, on a CEM60EC, running on an oDroid using Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS
- libindi is compiled on the oDroid from a Git download v1.7.5 (according to the Changelog)
- Guiding is binned x2, exposure 1s, using a guiding accuracy of 1.2 (This works really well with the 60mm finder guider 450mm f/l)
- The Lodestar is plugged into the mount's guide port
- Guiding settings are :
Algorithm : Smart
Lost star timeout 60s
Max delta RMS : 10 arcsecs
dithering set on

I just used my local copy of emacs (I've been using that editor for 25 yrs!) - no tabs... all spaces.... in fact, Emacs has a python mode which is showing me the correct indents
