I’d like to add my experience to the discussion. I use Macs as far as I can and I had great expectations from KStar/Ekos, which uses INDI (a very attractive alternative to ASCOM), is multi-platform and implements all it’s needed to do astrophotography, from planetarium to auto-focus, from sequencing to polar alignment. But as it tries to be everything to everyone, reliability is hardly its best feature. While I appreciate the effort of development community, it seems they are much more interested in adding new features than fixing bugs. As an itinerant astrophotographer, I can’t stand to live in a perennial beta testing status. I demand reliability when I’m out imaging, so I went off the wagon.
I really hate to boot my MacBook with Windows, yet I went for SGP and I don’t regret it at all. It does what it is supposed to do with 100% reliability. Period. I do polar alignment with a PoleMaster before launching SGP, but it could be PHD2 or SharpCap or whatever. I don’t really care it’s two different processes. Give me a real screwdriver and scissor, not a flimsy Swiss-Army knife!
That’s why I agree with @Jared, @buzz and @Chris: it’s a matter of priority, reliability and support. To me, the game of adding a feature that’s well implemented elsewhere, at the risk of weaken reliability/support, isn’t worth the candle.
This concept is so important to me that I moved in the reverse path, from a do-it-all application like Kstars/Ekos to a do-just-one-thing-but-do-it-well application like SGP.
