Would be good to create an area in the Ekos website for users to upload their scripts. Like drivers

I do believe the limitation will be the write rate on the drive where images are being stored, assuming that its being stored locally to same device to which camera is attached. (i.e no network latency)

AstroMuni replied to the topic 'KStars FOV Rotation' in the forum. 2 months ago

I dont have an automated rotator hence my requirement is for Manual rotation. I think it should work similar to the Polar alignment tool (and called a Framing assistant). So when you select this option it could show a screen with the FOV and a desired FOV with a rotation option and continuously take images at a set duration until you are happy with the framing.

If you are referring to the Job startup Conditions - date & time, you can set it for a date in the future which could be next year!

+1 to this. I had asked for it as well.

I have noticed a strange quirk in the Kstars 3.5.7 thats on my RPi 4b running Astroberry. When I deselect the button to show images in FITS viewer it comes back to say that it does not have anywhere to display the images and I am forced to use FITS viewer.
It works as expected on my Linux laptop and on my Macbook.
Any ideas on what I am doing differently??

Is there a way to rotate the view in skymap or elsewhere so you can visually see the effect and the rotator then knows what angle to change to?

AstroMuni created a new topic ' Framing assistant in Ekos?' in the forum. 4 months ago

I am trying to work out how the Rotator can be used in Ekos to help frame an object. I can see that that Stellarmate app talks about a framing assistant and I have read the documentation on Rotator. But its not clear to me how would one go about it in regular Ekos? Short of knowing the exact angle to rotate the rotator, is there a visual way (similar to Mosaic) where I can see the effect and frame the object? Any tips would help.

Spoke too soon. The kstarsrc file seems to be getting corrupted quite frequently. Its done this a few times already today and a couple of times in last 3days. It also did a core dump today. I have kept a backup of this kstarsrc file which I am restoring to bring me back online everytime.
