I meant EQMOD, but the INDI EQMOD driver, not EQMOD for windows. This as nothing to do with EQMAC or EQASCOM.
All the details here:
But I just remark this driver is unfortunately not include in INDIGO.
I not notice before because I always compile the INDI drivers from source and in this case Eqmod work fine but this is probably a bit difficult to start.
So the best option is to install the last Kstars 3.0 that include recent INDI drivers:
You can start with Kstars as it is a very powerful software with everything integrated, then look if you need one of the other software I mention above.
Just as an update to my progress with KStars, and by way of a thanks to Patrick Chevalley and others who helped me ages ago at the top of this thread, I can report:
At last I have had some time in August to get KStars/EKOS/INDI installed and configured. It's working quite well despite a few silly hiccups on the way.
I succeeded to polar align using the polar alignment routine and use plate solving to sync the mount, both using my guide camera. I have to say I was greatly impressed with plate solving.
KSTARS seems to work quite well with my Canon 450D. Unfortunately I didn't manage to get a good imaging session because I was dogged with poor skies.
The one remaining thing is to get guiding working. I had a few goes at it, but the patches of clear sky were so intermittent I didn't manage to set it up and test it properly.
So that's my next task.
Again .... Thanks so much for your help.
