So would you say the focuser is a bit out of "scope"?  :o)

Running Indiserver -vvv (devices) in a terminal (or the ssh to your server) will show telemetry and turning on and checking logs in ekos may show errors the driver outputs.

Can I re-use a previous nights calibration say from a week ago when I know everything was working?

No, In fact I will routinely toss calibration data between targets. the guider will try to use previous position and any creep that has occurred, even intentional - like moving targets, will result in your described deviation. The app often replaces old cal data on its own. even if you are using a fixed mount in an observatory night to night atmospheric conditions, temp, humidity barometric pressur and layers of seeing effects will throw off guiding cal. It's easy to just hit the trash can icon and let your mount get some noew cal data. LP is also a factor(mine just failed due to moon)
Also, check cable arrangement, any drag or tension will trash guiding pretty quick. Hope this helps and apologies if I miss any followups.

  I've been busy the last few weeks learning arch linux and setting up a new distro to my liking. Ended up with Artix/runit/cinnamon. I finally got a night I couldn't ignore and when I started guiding after midnight I saw this crazy view window.
@Jasem Am I right that this screen shows multi target comparisons? If so this would be more than pretty nifty. It could help negate the atmospheric density effects of seeing. :eyes:

Hi Martins! That's my DIY fitler wheel project you're working with. Try using the indi_moonlite_wheel driver with it. I never got around to finishing my own driver and decided to just make it moonlite compatible instead, based on Rbrown's work, if memory serves.. Also, I'll be updating my github soon with a more current sketch. Be sure to backup your current one in case you have wiring differences.

Happy new year and hope this helps.

Hi guys! Just popped in for unrelated stuff but when I saw this I thought maybe I could help This may be off the mark, ymmv and all damages and legal ramifications and abject fussing should be addressed directly to @KNRO
Just kidding. :P

I've found that when I see this sort of message it's quite often from a missing dependency in the install. My most recent was "libindi1" wasn't updated or was somehow removed. The other tripper I've found that can cause weridness like this is the remote mount side server not being up to date with the system side setup. Hope this helps!
