good point.
I have enough field of view to compare the two methods.
A priori, the method from the Polemaster should be the best, but what if the telescope is not perfectly aligned on the mount (I find that the plate of the eq6r pro is not perfect and even for the vixen bar of the C8 ... a little too much flexion I find).
if the sky is discovered a little on the side of Angouleme, I will try tonight ;)

Frank created a new topic ' Best Polar method ?' in the forum. 4 weeks ago

Hello,
I ask myself a question for polar alignment:

I have a Polemaster camera on my skywatcher eq6r pro mount, a Celestron C8 and either my Asi 294mc pro in hyperstar mode or in the focus of the telescope.

my question : is it better to do the polar alignment via ekos from the Polemaster (so directly on the mount) or go through my asi 294 ?

Frank created a new topic ' New option Meridian flip issu in Mount tab / Kstars' in the forum. 3 months ago

Hi,
Sorry for my bad english :(
There is a great option in the new kstars 3.1 or in the nighty build 3.1.1 : the meridian flip option in the mount tab !
But there is a but.
When i check the box and choose for example ha > 0.01 and then when I point the Mount at any object (whatever the side), in the Mount tab, the status of the option changes to "active " with a mention like "processing meridian flip" and a small Wheel turrns ans turns but nothing happens (I specify that the mount is not at all at the point of passage of the Meridien). So, impossible to take a picture because there is blocking in the tab of the camera (again, a small Wheel turn with the mention meridian flip).
And this continues even if I park the mount. Unchecking the option in the Mount tab does not change anything
The only way to get back to normal is to disconnect and then close Indi and then reconnect.

My system : A tinkerboard (ubuntu 18.04 Bionic) where al my system is connected : EQ6R PRO via EQMod, Pegasus UPB and focuscub, Polemaster camera and 2 zwo.

Frank created a new topic ' Server path for fits has disapeared since kstars 3.0' in the forum. 5 months ago

hi,
Since the 3.0 revision, i can't choose anymore a directory which is on my Synology nas (i can see it on my tinkerboard but not in kstars)

it was very useful because :
- more simple to use with my PC
- and more important, i used DSS live to live stack in direct

is it possible to fix this ?

Sorry for my bad English, i'm better in french ;)
