Small update

Seems new driver works a bit better. Initially it would not solve anything, saying I ran out of memory...so I deleted all downloads and only picked the required. worked better at least.

Still not 100% happy with it tho...

So I do some solving/polar align with the main camera + telescope and it works right away...
1st image solved
move to 2nd position
2nd image solved
move to 3rd position
3rd image solved and then some wcs?

With built in solver Kstars crashes to desktop all times
Tried another solver and it works!

So then to follow instructions to move star along the lines...I didnt even see the darn star...
I need to watch some Yt videos on that part.

Lets pretend I could align properly - move Ekos window out of way as "minimize" also minimizes KSTARS.. rightclick some targets like Sirius and select mount/goto and the thingybob moves over swiftly and starts tracking there...

Lots of things to learn, good thin I practice at home so I can have the laptop inside the garage - hooked up on WIFI to Astroberry.

What do I want to do next?

I assume setting up and start shooting a lot of pictures of something and see what comes out the other end.
