Currently setting up a pi4 with indigosky which will be run via APT , running win10  and the the latest APT Beta release 3.75.2 , now I can connect to indigosky server via browser , but I can’t connect via APT  indigo control panel throws up an error can’t connect to indigo or indi server  server address is default Indigosky , server port 7624 , on pressing navigate server error says dns address can’t be found , has anyone been successful in connecting to indigosky via APT running win10.

Yes, I have tried it and worked fine, but still prefer full Linux set up with rpi4 and Kstars / ekos with INdI server .. :)

Instead of using the name indigosky, put the IP address of rpi,  in instead, as APT prefers it .... :)

Either in your router settings, or connect the rpi to a monitor and it shows you on the top right corner if you hover over the network connections icon...

Or log in from windows PC via SSH, if you have it and in the terminal window type “sudo ifconfig” 

i had issues using the indigosky name, but worked fine using the IP address...

Quick question, is the entire RPi OS stored on the SD card? For example, if I wanted to flip between Stellarmate and back to APT via Indigosky, then I'd only need another SD card for Indigo? Each time the card is swapped the settings and configurations are all ready to go?

Yes normal set ups are, but you would have to shutdown , change the SD card and then reboot.

It should be possible to add Indigo (i.e. Indigo_server) to your Stellarmate and get Indigo server to load using a different port then 7624. So long as you dont start Indi_server and Indigo_server at the same time you could leave the ports at default (7624).

But using 2 SD cards is the easier/safer way to do it - One for Stellarmate(ubuntu) and one for RPI Buster for Indigosky/Indigo.

Yes exactly, one card for each.. :)

      This evening/morning I am having some problems getting my unmodified canon 600d to live view via apt. One hell of a palaver trying to get focused. Has any one suffered similar problems? Was working fine yesterday, tonight a bit of a disaster all round. I am running the feed for the guide camera down the same USB cable via a non powered hub, the camera works fine during the data gathering phase but no dam preview. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

      I use the Celestron AVX mount and I also use Astrophotography Tool when imaging.
      When I start my imaging session I will undertake a two star alignment then move to my target and THEN platesolve to ensure I have the object centred.
      My question is do I need to bother with two star alignment (or any other Celestron alignment for that matter)? 
      My thought would be to Polar align then take a shot of Polaris and plate solve this, sync the result to the mount then “Goto” from there. The only issue I have is when you switch the mount on and enter time/date etc it asks you to do a star alignment so how do I ignore this or do I do just that, ignore it!
      Sorry for the rambling question.

      Hi,
      I am at the moment trying to set up "Dithering" on my APT. 
      I am presently using a Canon 600D, with Orion ED80 Refractor, mounted on my NEQ6PRO.
      Please note, I have not yet progressed to Guiding - NO GUIDING
      Do I basically select "APT Dithering" and maybe leave all the other settings at Default?
      Most grateful if anyone can let be know which settings I might need to adjust, and to what values.
      Finding it all a little bit confusing !
      Many Thanks
      Steve
