Jerry Black created a new topic ' Crosshairs in DSLR Video feed' in the forum. 13 hours 5 minutes ago

Although this may not be the normal workflow for KStars users, to me it seems it would be useful if the video feed window from my DSRL in KStars would be capable of displaying the crosshairs and zoom that are available in the Fits window. This would allow me to centre alignment stars more precisely than the screen of my DSLR, using Kstars while completing the Mount's (CGEM-DX) alignment routine.

As an alternative do users typically do their alignment by multiple plate solving within KStars and ignore the mount's alignment? I presume this would preclude using NexStar polar alignment.

Thanks

Adjusting the .config/kstarsrc did fix the problem for me, thanks.
The Maximum and Minimum buttons on the window and the top system panel menu are covered in the full screen mode. Nothing but the Kstars menus and sky display were visible.

To answer my own qestion: in .config/kstarsrc
setting:
WindowHeight=810
WindowWidth=1440

Let me get out of the catch 22.

I have done something weird to my configuration while running Kstars Build: 2020-03-30T18:05:26Z. I can't get KStars out of full screen mode. I'd guess this is not likely a bleeding edge problem but rather something I've toggled. The view menu will display "Full screen mode" or "Exit Full screen mode" but either leave Kstars in full screen display (on an Odroid-N2 UbuntuMate configured with AstroPi3 setupUbuntuSBC.sh).

Where is this state recorded so I can reset this configuration?

Thanks

I've been using your setupUbuntuSBC.sh script for an Odroid-N2. It has worked well, no problems with viewing the screen (using NoMachine and choosing option 3 none during the install). The only problem I have is with wifi networking using a usb wifi stick from Ameridroid a Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8812AU 802.11a/b/g/n/ac WLAN Adapter. It will pick up a local wifi on boot, but I can't switch between local wifi networks without it ending up on the standalone hotspot.

Would this switch to Armbian affect this distribution?

Cheers
Jerry

Did you ever resolve this? I have the same issue with an Old LX200 8".

Thanks, I suspected as much. The release notes for 3.4 ( knro.blogspot.com ) said it was included, so I was a little confused, hoping it extended to the new stellarmate 1.5. I'll be more patient...

For me, with the Stellarmate OS 1.5, IL don't see the Sextractor option for plate solving in the astrometry.net configuration tab, with either the released OS or switching to the bleeding edge, although it reports kstars 3.4.0 Build: 2020-02-08T18:45:26Z

Should it be there?

I have the same issue for providing device names in the snoop fields etc. Would it be possible for someone replace the text field with a selection list of possible drivers so that we don't have the naming uncertainty?

Thanks

I would hazard a guess that your system is actually an arm64 system rather than amd, so try an intstaller based on ARM. I have it running on an Odroid without problems, using astap_arm64.deb.
