It doesn't work for me. It seems like any options specified in the field are not actually passed to the solver, which still shows 1 degree in its little window.
Mind, I'm using the "Load & Slew" button, unlike your screencap which shows you're using "Capture & Solve". I don't think Ekos/Kstars is doing the same things when using the two buttons.

Thanks Han, I'll try as soon as possible and report back.
If this works though, wouldn't it be possible to automate it when the image loaded doesn't have any info into its header?

Hi Han,
I'm trying by clicking on load and solve from ekos, but it always fails. I see that when I do this, the image vertical dimension is always 1 degree, even if my FOV is different. It seems all my settings, like focal lenght and CCD data, are not taken into account when using load and solve. Is this the expected behaviour?

Thanks!

From which kstars release is the problem of the guide scope focal length solved? I'd like to check before I go out. I'm using the stable ppa in Ubuntu.

Thanks!

Sorry to maybe hijack this, but from your capture Jasim, it seems the Altair astro cameras are supported now? If so, the devices page needs to be updated! I am in need of a new guidecam and I was looking at those for a while and holding, waiting for indi support...

You need to use the nightly builds, there are instructions on how to enable them in the Ubuntu format page.

What kind of issues were you having? With Ubuntu mate it should be just a matter of apt install kstars..

Besides, I must say that I am not a big fan of running everything on the little raspberry. It seems like squeezing too much into it. I currently use it as an indilib gateway to the network and then I use kstars and ekos on the notebook. Have you considered this approach?

The attachment is missing from that message. Can you repost that firmware please?

Before I borrow my friend's QHY8, I'd like to know if any changes have been made to this camera driver at all. We tried a few months back, but we had several difficulties, with the firmware first, which wouldn't work with the camera at all and had to download a different one, and we were then unable to stop a capture without locking the camera up.
If anyone thinks it would be a good thing to try, I can get the camera and make a few tests.
Thanks for any info!

I'm curious as to why chosing a color camera for guiding. Won't you give up some sensitivity? What about this one, instead, which is even on sale: www.teleskop-express.de/shop/product_inf...tive-Autoguider.html

No one has any idea? Are there people using this with a guiding focal length that's shorter than the main OTA?

Fabio Papa created a new topic ' Internal guiding subpixel' in the forum. 12 months ago

Hi,
is the internal guiding software capable of subpixel detection as is the case for PHD/PHD2? If so, what's the limit for the movement detection? I seem to recall the default PHD configuration sets the minimal movement down to 0.2 pixels but you can go even lower, and I'd like to know cause I'm evaluating some mini guider hardware for my setup.
Thanks!
