Hi Ray - not sure if this is what you are looking for but, in the Align module, click the options button in the bottom right hand corner. You'll get a pop up window with the first section being 'Stellar Solver Options'. There is a Rotator Settings check box there that may be what you're looking for.

Rob - my initial results are positive - everything seems to work as expected. It's daylight where I am so I won't say it was a full test but, no more crashes when starting the profile. The imaging trains appear as normal and my filter wheel filter selections also appear as expected (under 3.6.1 they sometimes weren't accessible). I'm able to move the mount and shoot frames as well.

Thank you and the team for your work on this - look forward to using it under dark skies!

Thanks Rob - I'll do that!

Rob,

To answer an earlier question, I am running KStars on a Mac desktop and connecting to a StellarMate OS remote Indi Server running on a RPi. I had the worry that the RPi wasn't current and did a software update to the latest release of the StellarMate OS. I got the same result - crash when starting the profile. It crashes immediately so I don't get as far as looking at optical trains.

Hi Rob - I wanted to make sure you were aware that the KStars download site (edu.kde.org/kstars/) has the 3.6.2 version as the current release. I did try it and it still crashes when starting a profile. Perhaps consideration should be given for having the 3.6.1 release for Mac users posted on that site until 3.6.2 is able to run reliably.

Rob - unfortunately I am getting the same result. I've attached log files for your review. Regrettably I don't have the technical chops to interpret the information.

Hi Rob,

I removed the Manual Filter from the configuration and tried multiple relaunches, including after a system restart. Still the same result. I've attached log files for you from the runs without the filter. It's strange because this configuration runs fine under 3.6.1.

Hi Rob,

Tried the Beta 2 file and got the same results as before. The moment I start the Ekos profile there's a brief flash of the Indi Control Panel and then EKOS and KStars simply crashes/quits. I've attached four log files (apparently two are created each time I launched KStars and then tried to start EKOS).

Let me know if I can share any other information.

Hi Rob,

My crashes occurred immediately after I selected the 'Run' button in Ekos. The system would not even get as far as displaying the Indi Control Panel. Having read Peters post as well, I wanted to say, in my case, rebooting the Mac didn't result in a change. I've attached three log files from this morning (I had to re-install 3.6.2 first). Again, happy to provide more information.

Hi Rob,

Just downloaded from your link to give it a try. I'm running KStars on a Mac talking with an RPi (running SterllarMate OS) at my mount. The Beta crashed 7 or 8 times every time I tried to run the profile for my setup. I reloaded 3.6.1 and everything works again - made no other changes. I have no idea.

I'm running Mac OS 13.0.1 on an M1 Mac Studio. Happy to provide any information you'd like.

Frederick Ruegsegger replied to the topic 'Multiple Zwo Cameras' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

I've been using a ZWO main camera and a ZWO guide camera and it has been working well. I just use the ZWO CCD device selection in the Profile for both the CCD and the Guider. I have noticed when I occasionally have to look back at the profile that the Guider selection is blank but it hasn't had an impact on my imaging or guiding. I tried using the ZWO Camera 1, Camera 2, etc. devices but that turned out not to work well for me - in fairness I haven't even tried to use those in many months.
