Logs attached. I did manually press "auto-focus" at one point in time and all the focus logs seem to explain the procedure well. It's when it does a Auto-refocus that seems to be the problem. There's not much going on after it captures two focus images. I'm not sure what to think. Any help is appreciated!

I used " sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mutlaqja/indinightly " and received a message saying something to the effect of "Command not found".

I still don't understand how to get nightly builds. I'm running a RPI4 with KDE and tried to use the Ubuntu instructions but that didn't work.

New issue I've never seen last night: Woke up this morning to find Ekos summary screen stuck on "focusing". I set the autofocusing routine to focus every 45 min. but when it hits 45 min, the summary screen says focusing but the focus module isn't doing anything. I have to hit the "autofocus" button then it would go through the focus routine and capture the sequence for the next 45 min unit it happens again. Which logs do I need to turn on to capture the problem? Also, any ideas as to what I can do to work around it?

Thanks, Wes

Would love to check it out tonight. Should be clear here. I'm using RPI4 with StellarMate. If you can briefly tell me how to download the latest build on StellarMate (RPI4) I'd be happy to test it.

A weird thing keeps happening... I connect PHD to Ekos and start calibration/guiding with PHD but for some reason the Ekos module just says it's calibrated. It shows RMS numbers but the graph doesn't seem to show movements. I have to either press "Stop" and then "Guide" in Ekos to get Ekos to connect to PHD properly. This wouldn't be an issue if dithering was working but that's the problem. This is the only way to get dithering to work. I've used PHD and Ekos together plenty of times without this issue but as soon as I started using 3.3.6 it's been happening. Any ideas as to why or how to prevent this from happening? Thanks! -Wes

My wifi problems went away as soon as I got my Pi 4 into a case with a fan. I thought maybe it was overheating and culling off the wifi. I now realize that I also quit using a powered usb hub connected to the same power source as the pi so maybe they were fighting each other for amps?

I was unaware that the Nikon D3300 was able to be controlled via computers. Did you have to modify it to work with Indi or communicate with Ekos?

It works great! Be sure to select Ethernet connection option from the Indi Driver before connecting and plug in 10.10.100.254 for the address and 8899 for the port. It works every time for me. Guides perfectly just like a RS232 cable connected. At least this is my experience. Hopefully, everyone else's is the same.

I'm just curious if anyone has recently updated their ioptron mount and if it works with the current INDI drivers.

Does anyone know if the latest iEQ45 Pro firmware (released 06/02/2019) is compatible with the latest INDI V1.3.0? I want to update the mount firmware but I want to make sure INDI can still do everything it needs to do with the mount.
Thanks, Wes

The top right icon just tells me there's no wifi modules available. I've tried to change the wpa_supplicant file. It will at least recognize my network but it won't connect to it even if I tell it to connect. It's like the hotspot broadcast has it disable and is the priority. I don't know enough about raspbian to know how to change this. Regardless, I tested it with iEQ45 Pro, ASI183MM-Pro, ZWO EFW, ASI120MM-S and everything worked great. Imaged all night and worked just like on the StellarMate Pi but obviously quicker since it was a Pi4 with USB 3.0
