Stephen replied to the topic 'Linguider vs PHD2' in the forum. 1 hour 10 minutes ago

Please know I was wrong in the above. The trend line are typical between the +1" to -1" not the +/- .5.

So it is about 2" peak to peak for my typical tracking. Sorry for the mistake.

Stephen created a new topic ' Ekos and ADU values from Preview' in the forum. 4 hours 52 minutes ago

How can Ekos be used to determine the ADU value from a preview image?

I am using the ASI1600MM-c for imaging, and following this thread on CN: www.cloudynights.com/topic/559771-asi160...cheat-sheet-no-math/

At unity is says to expose until ADU 850. When the statistics for the Fit are used is it the mean value to use?

Any help is appreciated.

João Brázio created a new topic ' Live View Window' in the forum. 6 hours 28 minutes ago

I have a couple of suggestions to the Live View window:
- Add shutter dropdown (DSLR users) or exposure float inputbox (CCD users)
- Add ISO dropdown (DSLR) or GAIN (CCD) integer inputbox
- Add a button which would allow to activate an image overlay such as a cross-hair (X, +, bullseye, etc)

The selection (DSLR/CCD) would be automatic based on the driver used.

The Window stuff only lag behind the Linux stuff by a few days. I'll make another Windows build now just to be in sync

Jasem, do you think it could be feasible to test the ASIStartVideoCapture function in the asi driver?
Thank you.

Thanks.

Added it into the indicated file. Plugged the camera into the Pi and tried to connect with Phd2 -- didn't blow up, so a step in the right direction. Trying to get an exposure failed with usb bulk transfer error -- probably because the Pi doesn't put enough power to the port to run the thing. Will test again when I get the powered hub that is on order. Question -- the firmware load line for these devices. What is it modifying or setting up? And any issues I should be aware of?

There are official (stable) binaries to be downloaded for Windows, I wonder if we can download the bleeding edge binaries (nightly builds of some sort) for Windows anywhere.

Anyone knows ?

Ben replied to the topic 'Using a starlight camera with a c++ program' in the forum. 9 hours ago

I tried copying the 99-sx.rules file into /lib/udev/rules.d instead and ran the reload rules command, but no such luck. I still get a lot of libsub IO errors. I tried deleting the 99-sx.rules file from /etc/udev/rules.d just to make sure they weren't somehow interfering with each other, but still nothing. I'll be looking into libusb to see if I can get more information about the error for troubleshooting. If you have any more suggestions they would be greatly appreciated!

Keith Cobby replied to the topic 'NFocus - Negative Number - Inward Focus' in the forum. 12 hours 17 minutes ago

I would like to add that I use a Rigel usb-nStep but use the Indi NFocus driver. I presume the Indi NFocus driver is designed for focuser's with relative positions as apposed to the Indi NStep driver that includes three stepper speeds.

(Just an observation but the two Indi drivers nFocus and nStep are called the opposite in each case to the Rigel products the nStep and nFocus).

Keith Cobby replied to the topic '"Aborting Autoguide" issue with external lin_guider' in the forum. 12 hours 43 minutes ago

As a comparison, can you guider using the internal guider? (It's very good by the way). I've never used lin_guider so may be coming to the end of my input.

I would suggest turning OFF the dithering to measure the capture peculiarity.

The only 128 pixel reference I've seen is the option to select the 'Use Image Guiding" feature in the Guide Settings section of the Options.

norikyu replied to the topic '"Aborting Autoguide" issue with external lin_guider' in the forum. 13 hours 50 minutes ago

thank you for the advice.
It helps me a lot.

Sequence aborting still occurs.

  • Set to use external lin_guider.Internal guider is not used.
  • Make a shooting sequence. (Ex. Exposure 15 sec, Count 5, Delay 5 sec)
  • Start autoguide and sequence.
  • First shot. success.
  • Dithering execution. success.
  • Suddenly, an image of 128 pixels is taken.
  • Guide is aborted.
  • An image of 128 pixels and a full size image are taken.
  • The sequence is aborted.
why?
What is a 128 pixel imagese?

0547:f111 is not the the QHY udev rules file. Try to edit the file here: /lib/udev/rules.d/85-qhy.rules

You'll see 0547 already mentioned, just add your rule in a similar fashion. In the end of the file, also add 666 permission like it's done there as well.

You will of course need the tablet and device running Ekos to be on the same Wifi network.
