Jasem said that the updates should be done via StellarMate Dashboard.
Currently there are no updates.


Cool, but I hate to say it, but I don't see any "Check for Updates" or any "Update" on the StellarMate Desktop window when it pops.
I've looked around and nothing on the Bottom Right Left arrow or the Top Left 3 Line menu.

To the Sextractor (Sex Tractor What???) Update... I opened a terminal and entered (copy & paste, using the noVNC clipboard icon, very helpful)

sudo apt update && sudo apt-get upgrade -y && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

On the copy/Paste in noVNC, click the clipboard icon, paste in your item.... select it all again and copy it. Seems to be the way that works for me. You can also do the opposite from the SM back into Windows.

When I first used it, I had screen tearing issues with noVNC (I think that's the term), but Jasem on another occasion told me to clear my cache in my browser. I did that and it cleared right up!

I also didn't like the screen colors and odd fonts (to bright), but that was easily changed with Raspbian screen preferences.

And in order to get the new Sextrator astrometry feature you need to run the following: sudo apt update && sudo apt-get upgrade -y && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Hate to see anyone go... but I understand.

Maybe you might think about using the Raspberry as a wireless hub so you don't have to run multiple wires inside the house (assuming you want to do you work inside). Not sure how this would be done, but for me... the cold and later mosquitoes keep me from hanging out outside. Plus I can watch movies and the like inside.

That being said I ran a ethernet cable inside to my hub... which gives me 11mb per second vs the <1mb I was getting wireless. But that's only one cable and I don't thin USB can run anywhere near the 100ft I have my ethernet cable.

Good luck and hang in there.

Nuts... I forgot to save my Sequence Queue Templates!

I still have on another SD, but I'll have wait to swap SD's in the morning. Just something to remember to add to the script above. ;)

Was the trick! Thank you.

I tried "sudo apt-get install -f" one more time before I did that just to see. And it and no updates. Saving that for the next time ;)

Yes. Running the "Updater Package" yields nothing new. Nor does: "sudo apt-get install -f"


You can’t get the full new 1.5.0 from the updater, you have to download and burn the new image to the SD card.... :)


Yeah, that's how I got to this point.

Yup, that did the trick!

Yeah those files might not be needed. However I chocked it up to a blank version of EKOS and have no profile to begin with. If they're not needed, then I would think no harm done.

Up until this morning I really didn't know what or why the big difference. I see we are now using Raspbian vs Ubuntu.

Secondly I meant to say they sextractor was installed if you look in astrometry settings you will see a checkbox for it.... :)


On these Pi's I suppose 64 vs 32bit makes no difference. So yeah, Ok.

But the checkbox on Sextractor is not there on my screen (I don't mean to be a pain, sorry)
