  1. Hi, I am hoping someone can give me some recommendations. I'm running Astroberry/Kstars and have been using NetGPS on my android phone to get my location . Unfortunately I've had to swap my Android phone for an iPhone and I cannot get NetGPS. Can anyone using an iPhone give any recommendations on a GPS App to use. Thanks Doug
  2. Great Talk and images. Thanks Nik and everyone else involved in bringing the talks to us. Doug
  3. Hi, I was unable to get to watch the live talk last week so it was great to watch it today. Thanks for uploading this video Doug
  4. Thanks, Once I realised I could not get rid of the simulator profiles I then did as you suggested and labelled them up as 'Test' and then I could p[lay around with my equipment etc and delete at the end. Unfortunately I'm left with a couple of Simulator Profiles, I'll just have to live with them, a small price to pay for a great bit of software. Doug
  5. Hi, I set up my own profile and called it Simulator and this profile can't be removed even though I set it up. Doug
  6. Thanks, Ill have a look Doug
  7. Hi, Thanks for the reply. Only reason I'm looking into it is due to the fact that I've had a coupe of near misses with my equipment and software going mental so I thought there may be a way to keep my eye on my equipment from the warmth of my house. I don't know how people can set everything up, leave it then go to bed, I wouldn't sleep. I've seen a few Bullet type weather proof CCTV cameras that I may look into as they cost less than £30.00 and I don't need anything fancy. Doug
  8. Hi, I'm setting up my imaging rig at the bottom of my garden and I'm thinking about setting up a CCTV type camera to give me an overview of my telescope/mount etc. I'm thinking of setting this up so I can see my telescope etc on my laptop instead of running out of the house every 10mins to check everything is working properly. I have a few spare USB 3.0 ports on my powered hub and I was thinking of using one of these. Has anyone done something similar to this and if so what type of camera did you use. Any advice greatly appreciated. Thanks Doug
  9. Hi, Thanks for the replies, I've tried hitting the minus button and it doesn't work, for some reason simulator profiles appear to be locked. I'll live with them for now it would have been nice to tidy everything up. Doug
  10. Just set mine up using the Flirc case and so far it's great. A big learning curve for me but I've got time on my hands at the moment. I'm sure you'll enjoy using the Rpi. Doug
  11. Great idea, I'll be there Doug
  12. I'm doing the same and waiting, in the meantime I'll run my SSD via the micro SD. Doug
  13. Hi, Whilst learning to use Astroberry on my laptop, I ended up setting up a number of Simulators Profiles in Ekos. Now that I've hopefully got all my equipment working I was wondering if there is a way to remove some of these profiles as I cannot remove or edit them as they appear to be locked. I'm just trying to tidy up the profile list in Ekos. Thanks Doug
  14. Hi, I'm new to all this so don't fully understand it so won't be able to do it yet but here is the link to the forum discussing it. https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=63&t=274595 Doug
