There’s a new version of Stellarmate to update, and a new iOS app bundle was just updated as well. The iOS app automatically update when it’s launched. These to things are supposed to fix connectivity issues, but I’m out of town and have not been able to try.

Looks like the new iOS app is out. It should connect to the updated 1.4.2 Stellarmate OS. Can’t wait to try it out.

I sent a message to Jasem in the support forums for StellarMate. He said a combination of 1.4.2 and an update to the iOS app to 1.9.11 should fix it. But the App Store still only shows 1.9.10. I suspect it will be available in the next day or so once it's been reviewed by Apple. He said he submitted it this morning.

I managed to download the image and flash without issues on a MacBook Pro. The iOS app finds the StellarMate, and I plug in my info with license information and Stellarmate website login information. Then it just sits there spinning wheel without ever connecting. However, I can go to the Device tab and see system information for the Stellarmate. I'm able to connect to VNC, and I switched to my home network and tried reconnecting. Same issue where it spins forever and doesn't connect. I've tried removing and reading the Stellarmate device from the iOS app, and it doesn't make a difference. It will still show system information under the Device tab.

I'm able to get in to the device with VNC and see the desktop. KStars is loaded by default. Not sure if it's supposed to do that, as it didn't with prior StellarMate versions. Anyhow, I was able to configure the server, and connect to it from my Mac Desktop using EKOS and tested the simulators. However I'm still unable to access the StellarMate from the iOS app or use EKOS there. When I select EKOS it says that it seems to be offline, and it asks me if I started an equipment profile. Which I can't seem to do from the iOS app.

I'm running the build you just posted, and that seemed to fix the scheduler. I'm shooting a galaxy right at this moment, and the scheduler went off without a hitch. Thanks for all the hard work!

The scheduler is still not starting. Am I supposed to install Python for this to work?

I’ll test 3.23 tonight. Didn’t realize I only had 3.2.2 last night and scheduler wouldn’t start. But giving it a go tonight. Also got another clear night tomorrow.

Aww that’s too bad. There must be a more global service. I would think they need to provide transparency, seeing data, and most weather services don’t offer the info. But, I’m guessing you can derive seeing and transparency from temperature changes, humidity and cloud coverage.

I'm extremely fond of https://www.astrospheric.comAstrospheric.com . I know the author allows imbedding of his weather information into webpages. I use it on my current website. But I would love for something like that imbedded into the panel similar to how I have it mocked up.

One thing you might have to do after a reinstall is go into the plate solve tab of EKOS, and select the preferences button. Make sure that it’s set to look into the default local directory. I think it’s the first selection at the top of the window. But don’t have it in front of me to know. This should get offline solving to work.

Did you try reinstalling? I encountered an issue with back to back upgrades that eventually broke offline solving. I ended up having to remove the program, and all preference files then reinstalled, and everything worked as expected.

How do I save this setting? I opened up Kstars, edited the location, it applied it when I closed the window. (The time in the upper left corner updated). Then I quite out of KStars. Then I loaded it up tonight to start imaging, and noticed it was off again. Went into location, noticed it wasn't saved, and added my location again. Then started the imaging session.
