as you closed issue 762 on Github I assumed that meant it was cured. Sorry after doing an update/upgrade today 14.00 GMT situation still the same.

Have I jumped the gun and assume too much - i.e. the changes have been made to daily update yet - sorry in advance

closed down powered off and this time just used RPI3 so Kstars running on RPI3 - same thing plus no Camera FOV shown either. Kstars 3.0.0.0 nov 17 2018 01.26 Log attached - cant see anything obvious. RPI3 is using bleeding edge daily.

Hi,

After updating my RPI3 Ubuntu 16.04 (used as remote server) and PC running FED28/Kstars the Synscan telescope icon no longer moves when the telescope is slewed. Alt/AZ details change in Ekos ok .

Cassiopeia using 10 x 20sec x 3200iso plus darks stacked in Astrotoaster - these are just screen prints - All using old SW AZGOTO RPI3 (wireless) running off a 12v battery. Granted pictures are great but a step forward for me using Indi

Pointless for me my Camera is not support (yet) - think i will finish my DIY mod for a focus stepper for my Canon Lens and just take pictures until I think its focused. If not then I will be going back to Windows APT again and look into Indi now and then to see if any progress has been made. I understand the Co-software route (Magic Lantern and Canon OS) but dont see the point ,for me,unless Indi Focus Module works the ML firmware (does it?) .

Doesn't even have to be a telephoto lens - using 18mm upwards still presents the same problem. Never used a Bahtinov mask on a camera lens and with remote working thats a bit hard to do LOL - so not a starter for me !

Using yet another piece of software (Magic Lantern) no thanks that's why I like Indi - all in one - when it works. Question also is raised why/how can Magic Latern do it (if it can?)

I am sorry to say it does work in Byeos and APT with Canon len's so that's my measurement point of what Indi is doing for me - same ok ,less not acceptable. :-)

Sorry missed that on my search - doh!

Therefore we should make sure the focus in / out buttons are inactive/non-functional whenever
1. Canon DSLR is selected as active Focuser AND
2. no Live Video window is open.

Totally agreed else it also means that your PC will have to be restarted as it seems to leave a process which become CPU hungry on the Ekos PC - On my ekos pc - RPI3 servers set up. I have to restart all ( Ekos PC and Indi RPI server) - very bad work flow not user friendly at all.

Thanks again Herrhausen :-)

Hi does anyone know if the Indi Focus Module should control a Canon DSLR Canon Lens focus - as it does not seem to do anything?

This combo works fine on APT Focus Control !

Maxthebuilder - glad you have your set up working and I did expect he "Cheap AP" to fail but hoped it would be ok :-( - hence I use a TP-link - still cheapish but good robust h/w.

IMHO The problem with making the RPI be the AP it has to do a lot of work - be a AP,DHCP,DNS and as the RPI3 still shares the USB channel with he Ethernet/Wifi I think we are asking a lot of the little device if you add in Mount,Camera etc - remembering the AP,DHCP,DNS carry a lot of overheads in terms of network management messages.

If Stallemate can work in Station Mode (RPI3 default) and you can attach your "comms" to your home or travel AP network I think performance and wifi problems will diminish. Especially as the RPI WiFi signal is not that strong IMO

But I understand the "does it all" commercial approach :-)

"Both modes can be enabled at the same time" - IMHO I would never do this again asking a lot of what is most likely a ESP826 or ESP32 chip.

Again glad you are getting somewhere !!! :-)

Nothing strange at all Wifi and Wired could (and sounds like they are) be connecting to 2 networks. The Wifi just happens to be connecting to the same network as Ubuntu PC. You can of course create a bridge (assume IOS/Mac is allowed too) between the networks so that the Wifi and the Ethernet allow traffic to pass transparently across the 2 networks.

However as stated before the lack of info,network drawings etc does make it hard to help in such cases :-)

But hey its working :-)
