On my SBC, I have an apt installed version which I refrain myself to upgrade and I compiled from source to try new features like the new PA procedure.

Same issue here, crashed 2 times in one night, both after one hour or so.

I love chasing the lastest version of softwares but Kstars really taught me not to. 3.4.2 worked fine for me and when I started using 3.4.3, 3.5.0 and all the way to 3.5.3, I had bad night almost every time.

I agree, I used to use the "refocus if delta T " feature but half of the time it failed to refocus and stopped for the rest of the night. It would be great if it can go back to previous position and just keep on shooting.

Also I used SEP with all star profile and linear algorithm, I believe the star extraction is not very reliable as it often picks noise instead of slightly off-focused star.

Same here

OK I can build now, started working on this

I've tried to do this on my own but I'm having trouble building it before I can make any changes

I use mount control to sometime fine-tune the composition of the image before starting a capture session. I'd love to map the arrow keys on the keyboard to directions of the mount control. I believe this will be beneficial to users who VNC into the rpi running Ekos with a tablet as virtual mouse is hard to use for small keys.

OK, I will get started and see what I can do

I love the Ekos polar alignment module and have been using it without issue for a few month. However, one thing that troubles me is that the correction vector does not reflect to Alt/Az motion on the mount. Also the vector is not "attached" to the star so I often lose track of the star that I'm trying to center. Thirdly, if the initial alignment is way off (like 3deg), the vector is too long to fit in the view of a 1deg guider.

Based on my observation of other tools (namely the one on ASI Air), we could make it automatically select a star and show the leveled correction vector (I think direction maybe problematic since the mount does not whether the image is mirrored or not, but leveling should be ok). We could track the star using a similar mesh building method like the one in ASTAP and astrometry.

I'm wondering if the kstars team already has a roadmap for this feature, and if not I'm glad to contribute although I might need someone to evaluate the above and point me to the good direction for implementation.

HI knro,

Can you point out which commit fixes the problem? I went through the commit list and didn't find one.

I also noticed that this issue github.com/indilib/indi/issues/1091 looks like the same as mine.

Thanks
