Ah - I see that now - makes sense, thank you! I also notice that it records the absolute focus position so it can return there for the flats. Excellent!

Is there a way to force an auto focus between imaging sequence lines without using the scheduler or specifying an offset?  For example, image 60 frames of Ha, switch to Oii, refocus, image 60 frames of Oii. All inside the sequence.

Nevermind - I think I found it. There's a "Summary screen preview" checkbox in the Ekos Capture settings section.  Do you concur?

Why am I not seeing the latest capture image in the Capture frame on the Setup Tab?  I see everything else (focuser, guiding, capture stats, etc)

I think I've discovered the problem. I have a WeatherCat application running on another machine to retrieve WX data out of the WeatherLink device for storage and display on my home automation stuff. I think the WeatherCat app and Ekos (or WeeWX) are competing for communications with the device itself. The WeatherLink device doesn't do a good job brokering requests from multiple clients.

Installed WeeWX and have similar results. I see connectivity and initial data sets, but then seems to have issues re-connecting and updating.

Still have the exact same issue with latest nightly. Anyone have luck with an ethernet connection to a Vantage Vue?

Oh wow - of course! I installed my reducer for a wider shot of the Veil, and forgot to set the scope params to the shorter focal length. I stared at those numbers many times, noting that they were correct (just not for THIS config!)

I'll bet that's it - thanks for the reminder! Might get a chance to try it tonight.

Perfect WX last night - thought I'd try to image the Western Veil.  Running KStars 3.5.4 Beta (Build 2021-05-28T02:09:57Z) on Ubuntu 20.04.2.  All devices seemed to be working fine.  I couldn't get any shot to solve to save my life.  Tried StellarSolver, ASTAP local (all index files), Astrometry local and online.  Always the same behavior - image looks great with plenty of stars in focus, solver spins and never comes back or occasionally I'll get the "Solver failed - check to see if you have enough stars" message.  It got too late and I gave up before I turned on any logging.

Known issue?  Anyone have a known good solver config for latest KStars and Ubuntu?  Hints or suggestions?
