Thanks... I guess bypassing the GPS is the way to go. I don't think I really need the GPS, since my location is fixed at the observatory and can use network time from the Pi. Setting the time and date is a pain on the handbox. Are you willing to share the code?
My club has a Meade 14 GPS scope permanently mounted and aligned on a equatorial wedge in its observatory. I've been using Stellarmate on an EQ6 and a refractor, so I'm hoping it will be a simple switch to this scope and mount. I got a USB-RS 232 cable, which connected right away. My problem is that when I try to sync the mount to my KSTARS position, the scope indicators moves to the right position, but then immediately jumps far away - maybe 6-7 hours of RA. My guess is that the GPS is conflicting with KSTARS in some way. I'm wondering how to fix this problem.
I pointed the scope manually, and guiding worked well. It calibrated quickly, and was able to track well, even at the 3600mm focal length. (I was using an Off-Axis Guider for the first time, so it was a pleasant surprise when it worked right away.
Any suggestions on how to fix this? I'm wondering about some way to disable the Meade's GPS and just do everything from KSTARS.
I have a GEM45 on order, (planning to replace my EQ6, which I've been running pretty well under Stellarmate). I'm using a Pegasus Power system. Just to confirm, the GEM45 is now fully supported? And what is the status of the iPolar support?
Thanks for any information...

I'm interested in a live display of astro images as the sub frames come in... for example, a Pi 4 with one HDMI showing the KSTARS control, and a second HDMI showing a deep sky image as it comes in. For example, each 5 min sub would be processed, and displayed until the next sub in.
Can this be scripted? Show more
