I guess so, because the artificial Horizon is implemented by the altitude limit!

So i have fixed this bug with changing  github.com/KDE/kstars/blob/stable-3.5.7/.../scheduler.cpp#L3684 currentJob->setState(SchedulerJob::JOB_IDLE); to currentJob->setState(SchedulerJob::JOB_ABORTED);

With this, the Job is aborted and the next job in the queue is executed

So here are the recent logs:

Have checked the code github.com/KDE/kstars/blob/stable-3.5.7/...eduler/scheduler.cpp and the bug seems to be in the void Scheduler::findNextJob() ... 
It selects the previous "aborted" job :'(

The Artificial Horizon is a nice feature, but if a Job is running into the Limit the scheduler stops the complete queue instead of the related job only :(

With this behavior the feature is quite useless, my setups where sleeping 5 hours - just because of this - instead of capturing the next Target :'(

 



 

Thanks for your help!

@Jasem Mutlaq Just recognized that the state machine was refactored with 3.5.7, so i will update and give it a try.

So Clear Sky here in Germany after many weeks, but KStars 3.5.6 Build: 2021-11-11T14:55:20Z crashed after the Flip on M106. I had no logs enabled, because it was quite stable till yet ...
From the Analyze Tab I can see, that Ekos may run into a race condition after the Flip, because instead of running the Solver the Capture was resumed: 



There are also some "cancel" files in /tmp from that timeslot: 


There was already performed a Flip before, but with another Target (M78): 


It worked, but the Pattern looks a bit weird, but the scheduler changed to M106 just after the Flip. 

While researching, i see that "ekoslive" is flooding the syslog with an SQL Error:

Don't think that this is related to the main issue, because it floods the logs since beginning of the session ;)

Ah i see!

So the alignment Module will rotate relative to the current rotation angel!

So with the correct fit's header, i should be able to create the corresponding flats!

Thanks

Philip Mair replied to the topic 'Ekos/Kstars and Rotators?' in the forum. 4 months ago

Hmm, so what does this mean?
My goal is to schedule a job with this:
Target A with Rotation @ 0
Target B with Rotation @ 90

Rotation should be applied when slewing to target and before guiding process starts.I had the "Rotator" checkbox enabled last night (setting was 30.00)
This works in general, but with this i was not able to make reliable flats after the night, because i guess that the align module will sync the rotatiors position to its resolved value? 

 



Currently i have tested with the simulators to use a rotation without having the align checkbox enabled. But in this case no rotation is applied :(

Sorry for my missunderstanding and thanks for your help

Philip Mair replied to the topic 'Ekos/Kstars and Rotators?' in the forum. 4 months ago

So i just have one more question:

When using the Rotation Tab in Scheduler, is it Necessary to have the Rotator checkbox enabled in align module? I don't want to rotate after a flip. This only increases the amount of Flats ...

But in my case the rotation has to be applied before the Guiding Process starts. because my OAG will be also rotated ...

Thanks for you help!

So i just have upgraded my setup with the Falcon Rotator. With the rotation enabled in the Plate Solving module the alignment works great. But it would be nice if the Rotators absoute position is written into the Fits headers of all Lights AND Flats. 

Here are the current Fits Headers of a Light:
