Yes it is possible. Select SkySafari as auxiliary driver and select LX200 in SkySafari. When starting Ekos you need to note the ip address and port for the SkySafari driver and make sure that SkySafari uses those to connect to INDI. No additional hardware needed.

It only opens when Ekos is running. You can try with the simulators first to make sure that everything is working.

Sorry, I misinterpreted that icon on your desktop for the KStars installation directory. But of course it is the virtual disk that gets mounted when double clicking the dmg file. I have those desktop icons disabled on my MacBook.

My INDI config in KStars looks like this:



What happens when you click the check boxes for INDI Server and INDI Drivers XML Directory?

I think the installation directory is wrong. When you double click the dmg file and you get the popup, try dragging and dropping it on the Applications folder icon in the popup. That is the default directory for application on MacOS. And make sure to remove the current installation from your desktop first to avoid clashes.

I downloaded the Mac installer for KStars 3.4.2 from the KDE website a few days ago and installed it on a brand new MacBook Pro running the latest patch of Catalina. No problems whatsoever. How did you install KStars exactly?

Both AstroPixelProcessor and PixInsight handle CR2 files very well. APP is better at creating mosaics than PI but PI is more powerful. Just to give you a few ideas. I use both apps by the way. APP for stacking and light pollution removal, PI for post-processing.

Disconnect the ZWO USBST4 adapter, open a terminal and type

dmesg -w

This will print out all kernel messages since the start of the machine. Wait for the scrolling to stop. Then the command will wait for more kernel messages to appear (that's what the -w flag does). Then plug in the ZWO USBST4 device. Copy and paste the new kernel messages here so we can see what they look like.

You can exit the dmesg command by typing CTRL-c.

I am sure you searched the forum and found this thread, but in case you didn't:

Apart from that you can install Raspberry Pi OS (formerly known as Raspbian) and compile yourself.

Wouter van Reeven replied to the topic 'KStars & Ekos shared configuration' in the forum. 1 week ago

Yes they are. You need to copy the directories

.local/share/kstars
.indi

Both paths are relative to your home directory. Note that the paths start with a dot which means they are considered hidden on a Linux system. Many file managers don’t show those paths unless you explicitly configure them to do so.

Wouter van Reeven replied to the topic 'Unable to connect' in the forum. 1 week ago

Dario,

Can you please try the following: open a command line terminal without any of your equipment attached and without KStars started and type

dmesg -w

You will see a lot of info scroll by which are the kernel messages of Linux that you can ignore. Once it has stopped scrolling it will wait for more kernel messages to appear (which is what the -w switch does) so please plug in the eqmod cable. You will see a few messages appear. Then please plug in the qhy camera. Copy and paste the messages that have appeared in your terminal when you plugged in the eqmod and the qhy in the forum here. This will allow us to help you resolve your issue.

By the way, press CTRL-C to exit dmesg and then simply type exit to quit the command line terminal.
