I've been using Kstars/Ekos/INDI/PHD2 for a while with a Celestron CGX, and have just upgraded to a Paramount MX+. I'm running Kstars 3.5.3 with PHD 2.6.9dev5 on Ubuntu 20, connecting to TheSkyX 10.5.0 (Build 12846) via TCP at the loopback address 127.0.0.1@3040
Slewing works great, and it's been a seamless transition in general. I've been able to successfully connect, calibrate and "sort of" guide.
My problem is that PHD2 guiding feels glacial - and doesn't work that well. Previously with the CGX, I had been able to guide with as short as 0.5s exposures and everything felt snappy. With the Paramount via indi_paramount_telescope, even with 3s exposures, it seems like there's an extra second or two added between imaging, guiding and update activities, and sometimes updates come in bursts. I tried updating the polling frequency to the mount (vs 0.5s then 0.25s) but that doesn't seem to make a difference.
Has anyone else experienced this problem? I'd invest time in getting TSX guiding working, but it doesn't help with an automation workflow on Linux.
