Where is the temperature displayed?

Can you share a screen capture?

That's why I posted the previous post.

Thank you for this great update.

I have only just noticed that the indi driver does not show the temperature sensor readout anywhere.
Is there any way that can be included?

I have been following this thread for some time - you guys are amazing.

I have the Sesto Senso and use Astroberry on my RPi3b+

I really appreciate what you are doing to fix this annoying issue. Following this thread is quite a learning experience.

As soon as a new version of the driver is available I would like to try it out. ( Please explain how to load it)

I had the same problem. my Sesto Senso focusser reads approximately 89,000 all the way out and it reads 0 when all the way in. IT does remember where it was when you power it off.

I am using Kstars and Ekos. What I found was that if you move the focusser using the indi driver to around its middle position say 40,000 and then let Ekos do the focussing it actually works fine. Then simply power off and manually wind the focusser back in at the end of the night. Next time I simply manually wind it to approximatly the same position before powering on and it remembers where it was i.e. around 40,000. Then I tell the Ekos focussing app to auto focus and it works. Hope this makes sense.

Thanks for the quick reply, it seems it does work easily with Raspbian, as long as you make sure the no sd card installed patch is done to avoid excess CPU use and the subsequent heat increase.

I think Astroberry is based on Ubuntu so does that work as well?

I have Astroberry successfully working on my RPi3B+ installed on a 16GB SD card.

Is it possible to load it onto a USB stick that is plugged into a powered USB hub and boot and run Astroberry on the RPi from that? and have no memory card installed.
If the answer is yes will it improve or downgrade the performance?

I did a release update to 18.04.2 and everything works fine.
That said I only run the INDI drivers and PHD2 on my RPi. Then I run KStars/Ekos on my windows laptop and connect over WiFi.
