Often times when I'm working on EKOS, I need to troubleshoot before I start a schedule. However, scheduler is 'dumb' to what happens manually. It would be nice if events like 'focus' and 'alignment' where a globally tracked asset so that if it's already been accomplished, the scheduler skips over it until the next commanded time.

For instance, if I start a focus manually, it knows when it focused last; but scheduler just does it again because it's 'stupid'. I have my focus routine setup to take into account temp and a time.

For alignment, I imagine it could cross reference the coordinates and if within the tolerances expected, it would skip that portion..


Hey Jasem,

Where is the selector for whether it's disabled or not? I don't see a tick box or anything inside the Nitecrawler driver, the align module, or the rotator control panel.

Updated using the commands you gave me earlier in this thread.



Have you tried this script? I feel like it would pull all the files correctly to build it from scratch.

I'm spit balling... I hope it helps.


You should be able to use the commands on the previous message to fix it.


Is there a way to update INDI similar to the kstars-update command?


With my nitecrawler I get this error regardless of what I set in that limit option in the driver. I can manually tell it in the rotator control to go to it but it won't automatically go to it because of this bug.

Here's the line from the code... it happens after 5 images are taken and it gives me an index out of range..



Ran into where it did the freezing on rotation again. Logs attached. The nightly build also crashes after 5 images in scheduler.. not quite sure what to do from here.
