Wes Creech created a new topic ' Under-Voltage Detected' in the forum. 5 days ago

I keep getting an under-voltage warning sporadically with my StellarMate Pi since I upgraded to the newest OS. I've tried it on different pi boards and it's the same thing so it's leading me to believe it's the OS flashed to the SD card. I've checked the hashes on it like the StellarMate website says but the Hashes are different than the expected Hashes. It seems to be working fine but the warning is a little concerning and I'm just wondering way it's doing it. I've also noticed that the noVNC viewer is a little slower after the upgrade. A few seconds of delay with every click. Is that normal?

Thanks, Wesley

I updated to 1.4.1 OS and now for some reason VNC isn't working with Safari on my MacBook. It works for Firefox and it works on Safari on my iPad but not on my MacBook. I get "NoVNC encountered an error: Script Error". Any ideas as to where I should be looking to find the problem?

Looks like I'm in the same position and need to update SM OS on the StellarMate to 1.4. I'm still on 1.3 and this is probably the reason the tablet app isn't communicating.

Same here, I just get Network Error if I'm on my home wifi or on StellarMate wifi.

Very interesting Chris. A lot of this is above my head though. What exactly is inditelescope? Is it the way Ekos reads the mount?

Interesting. I know it doesn't show in the log but do you know if your mount switches the tracking from "ON" to "OFF" and then "ON" to "OFF" a second time when you slew? I see this happen in my case in the mount control tab.

I'm not sure. I tried to re-create this issue yesterday to log it but of course, it didn't do it!! I always thought Verbose with the part you wanted logged check should always write every bit of activity to a file.

You're correct but when ekos "thinks" the mount has stopped and is tracking, it actually has not stopped and is still flipping or slewing and the settle time of 3000 isn't enough time for the slew or flip, perhaps I can work around it by adding even more settle time (the time is takes to flip). It'll just make the flip longer but at least it may actually work.

YES! I did that exact same thing. Problem is... sometimes the slew is longer than the 3000.

I use an iEQ 45 Pro plugged into a StellarMate RPi via USB Serial cable from the RS232 on the mount itself to the Pi. Works great after using serial assistant. ALWAYS Connects. The only issue I see is when slewing the driver briefly reports that it's done slewing and is tracking (even though it's still slewing). This throws off ekos because it will then start to capture and solve before the mount is complete with slewing. Really annoying, I wish I knew how to fix it.

I'm running a iOptron iEQ45 Pro with a serial cable. This has been the only problem I've ever experienced with it. I've made sure I'm running the correct INDI driver.

Hi, I did attempt to find this problem in the forum but couldn't find it. Basically what is happening is that the mount driver is briefly reporting to Ekos that it has finished slewing and is tracking. This false report only happens once for a brief second just after the slewing begins. So for instance, during the meridian flip, the alignment procedure automatically starts capturing images to solve while the mount it still moving, this results in an image that is un-solvable and the alignment fails. It prompts that it will try again, but I usually just go ahead and do a capture manually rather than wait for ekos to attempt again. Sorry I don't have any logs yet but it's obvious that the mount driver is the problem because when sending a slew command, the mount console switches to tracking for a brief second during the slew.

Has anyone had this problem before? Anyone have any ideas how to fix this?

Thanks, Wes
