When I'm doing a mosaic sequence, everything starts out ok. It slews to the 1st frame, focuses, aligns and begins auto guiding with a normal pick a star - calibrate - guide sequence. It then takes the required exposures.

The problem starts with the 2nd frame. It does a normal slew and align but then begins auto-guiding without selecting a new star. It tries to guide on "nothing" until it errors out. Only then does it select a new guide star and begin imaging. In the mean time it may have produced any number of unguided images.

Attempting to stop the guiding only makes things worse because it goes all the way back to re-calibration when that is unnecessary.

A second problem is that the job sequencer will not reset properly. It keeps all job status' at "completed" and will not re-run the set.

Follow up to my last post. I tried using "aptitude" instead of "apt". Still no joy but I got a more complete error message....
==================================================
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
indi-full : Depends: indi-astromechfoc which is a virtual package and is not provided by any available package

The following actions will resolve these dependencies:

Keep the following packages at their current version:
1) indi-full [Not Installed]
=========================================================

I see that similar problems have occurred in the past. I'm sure it's just a glitch in the new driver set that will be cured in a day or so.

"Hoping there is a quick fix!"

Me too! I've just made my problem worse by purging indi-full. I was hoping that a fresh start would fix things but it didn't and now I have no drivers at all.

I ran into this problem this morning...

======================================
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
indi-full : Depends: indi-astromechfoc but it is not installable
Depends: indi-dreamfocuser but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages
=====================================

I assume it's a glitch in the new library release. Any help?

If your issue #1 is correct - that's scary! A viewer should be just that - not an editor.

PixInsight can show FITS images and histograms but it may not be convenient to use during an observing session.

Thanks, does that also apply to the guide module?

Is the image Effect selection only for the operator to see what's going on, or does it affect what the system "sees" and processes on?

This is great. Just what I wanted, and so quick! This is the second time that you've made a minor fix for me in less than a day. It's like having a personal programmer on my staff. Thank you again Jasem.
