It would be interesting to balance the background of the sky during capture.

That is more of a post processing software feature than an image capture. A color camera with a Bayer matrix splits the light for each pixel to RGGB. Don't see how you could adjust that during capture.

Thanks! I am assuming that this is pretty much similar for mac users as well?


I do not know what Mac uses for a command line editor.

I use Ubuntu as my desktop and my Pi as a INDI server only for remote operations. (I bought the StellarMate OS to support Jasem and the project) Personally I use the command line editor 'vi' as I can do a lot with the program. Nano is easier to master for a new user, it is a basic command line editor. I was simply answering your question in regards to a command line editor that runs on StellarMate.

I would check out Jasem and the link to 'How to submit logs' on his signature.

Cheers

Configuration issues. On Ubuntu's side you don't need to place the DNS server IP address, all you have to do switch automatic to 'on' and make sure nothing is in the 'Gateway' IP address. Also have to configure the eno1 using the ifconfig command

me:~$ sudo ifconfig eno1 192.168.100.2
password: ########

Now I have to find the config files to make this permanent...

Jim S. created a new topic ' Ethernet cable' in the forum. 4 weeks ago

Let me preface that I am able to log onto my Stellarmate via the WiFi using Ubuntu without issues:



When I attempt to use an Ethernet cable things don't go well... I have set my eth0 adapter up:



I have tried this with auto on DNS and off.



I have tried authentication on and off. I have used; user: stellarmate, password: smate and a few other variations. I am stuck at this point on how to achieve a Cat5 connection???? Any tips, what am I missing here?

Went to go-to Vega for a quick test shot and plate solve and the mount decided to go this way. Tried to go 20 degrees bear Polaris and still wanted to point at the ground but this time decided to crash into itself

Time and site are correct

What am I missing?


Looks like you have put your ADM dove tail mounting plate on wrong. I have one of those and I placed my inline with my DEC motor, not perpendicular like yours.

jerry wrote: Can anyone comment on the suitability of <strong>Mint</strong> for KStars/ekos/indilib etc.?
I'm using
<code> Ubuntu Release 20.04 LTS (Focal Fossa) 64-bit
Kernel Linux 4.9.219-72 aarch64
MATE 1.24.0
</code>on an Odroid-N2 without any problems.
20.04 appears to be faster than 18.04.

In light of this article regarding <em>snap</em> www.zdnet.com/article/linux-mint-dumps-ubuntu-snap/
I was wondering if I should switch to Mint Mate on my 8G RPi4?

Thanks


Disturbing... This was what a friend mine was referencing but without this article in front of him he was paraphrasing, pretty sure this was what had him ticked... Just kept saying it installs programs without users consent and Chromium. (He is not a fan of anything related to Google...) So I have not upgraded from 18.04, thanks for the link. Maybe I will have a look at Mint.

To bad they don't have an ARM iso.

and then make sure it cannot be installed again:

sudo apt-mark hold snapd

And then sit back, keep using Ubuntu 20.04 for another two years and see what happened to snap when the dust settles. Plenty of time to consider moving to Linux Mint or another distribution in the mean time.


HTH, Wouter



Huge part of the reason I am still using 18.04 at the moment. I can't understand why they decided to use the Chromium package that connects and installs without the users consent...

Linux Mint doesn't have an ARM edition. Don't think Mint will run on a Pi as they only have 32 and 64 architecture...
