Too many times I only post for issues. Well, the past couple of nights I had great runs all night without issues!

Thank you guys, it really takes the stress off when everything runs smooth.

Oh cool, giving this a try (next clear night). Something pointing slightly down would be enough.
We have a ton of flower petals now flying around. I found a few sitting right on the lens yesterday morning.

Ok, figured it out. If you grab the top or bottom of the EKOS window and drag it larger, it will fix those fields.

Bad news is the window now a bit too big and needs to be dragged below the toolbar, but then half the debug window is below the screen. But it's better than not begin able to edit those fields.

Here I am looking for the same answers to the same problem.

I'll give that same solution a try that rbarberac suggests.

Yeah, I don't have mine hooked up... dang weather. I have the screen resolution set to the highest, so my experiments were to lower it.

I had no luck changing resolution, it did change the screen, but those squished fields were just more squished ;)

How are you driving your mount? I did try that BTW, only using the mount and a CCD Simulator. No luck there either.

I ended up last night using EKOS' ser recording. INDI did work, but it said if filled the buffer skipping frames.

I'm trying to get some Moon images and I'm trying to use the Firecapture software that's now on the desktop.
What's the procedure? Run EKOS normally the toggle over and launch Firecapture?

I've done that a did get some good recordings, but it does tend (almost every time) to crash after each image run.

The errors I get look like this:

Is there a way to change the font/field size? There seems to be an area below it, so no reason to squish it.

Is there a way to set a windows position, so when it's reopened, it opens in the same location.
My most often window task is to reposition the Ekos window back under the KStars toolbar.   It's default position seems to always be right on top of them.

I'd love to have a park position that's horizontal.   I would think it could keep debris from landing on the lens.
