It was just missing some spaces, then works:

#!/bin/bash
cd $(dirname "$0")
source ./venv/bin/activate
if [ -d "./venv/lib/python3.6" ]
then
cd ./venv/lib/python3.6/site-packages/
elif [ -d "./venv/lib/python3.7" ]
then
cd ./venv/lib/python3.7/site-packages/
elif [ -d "./venv/lib/python3.8" ]
then
cd ./venv/lib/python3.8/site-packages/
else
echo "python not found"
exit 0
fi
export QT_SCALE_FACTOR=1
python3 -m astrodom
deactivate

I had edited my previous post to add more information. I had hoped to update it before you read it, but was not quick enough :)

I have it running with python 3.8.1 without any problems so far. I have pointed it at a folder of folders that spans 4 years of raws and calibration frames, and it is chugging away, but getting the error:

ERROR Null value for dec keyword: in Settings fix keyword name or set a default value else the file cannot be inserted into the database

It would be nice to have a stop or abort button to stop the import to fix any import issues.

I run mine on a gen7 (was current when I got it) i3. The i3 has plenty of power to run everything, and saves some money.

Is this due to dithering? Does it only go in one direction as that would make sense because of backlash considerations? I guess even though I use it, I never stopped to look and see if that was the case. Most of my capture sessions are around an hour each so I have not noticed drift much.

Very nice video work and explanation. Congrats as well to the kstars/Ekos developers that have put countless hours into this beast to have it operate seemingly effortlessly on the outside.
