I just checked my RPi and it was having an error building packages.. so wait for few hours until it finishes building the new package and uploads it.

Can you please clarify which version has this bug fixed? Downloading the current tar file for RPi (from Nov 11, ten days before your posting) still gives me the same error as reported above.

Cheers, Aleks

David Rankin replied to the topic 'QHY163M disconnect INDI' in the forum. 2 hours 27 minutes ago

To follow up a bit more on this. I was able to get 5 sets of 40 images from the camera by avoiding transferring data to Ekos. I stopped about half way through to do a manual focus. After the 5th run, I decided to give an auto focus a try and the camera froze up and stopped responding. Rebooted the RP3 and all was good again. I am really starting to suspect this issue is being caused by either 1. The way Ekos is sending the commands to get the images 2. The data transfer of the images from the PR3 to Ekos. If I avoid any image data transfers to Ekos by storing the images on the RP3 and using an FTP to get them, it all functions correctly.

There is no protocol to control paramount directly (that I know of). You can ask them for this, but I doubt you'll get anything.. so you have to use TheSkyX server (it runs on Linux) and THEN use INDI Paramount driver.

Nope. You'd just have to do it in a smart way. Maybe you can delete/add whole groups if you want to do it this way to ensure proper orderings.

Massimo created a new topic ' Driver indi_qhy_ccd crashed on VirtualBox' in the forum. 2 hours 53 minutes ago

Hello to everyone, I'am using Kstars and Ekos with Ubuntu Mate on VirtualBox (windows 10). My equipment is composed by Avalon Mzero mount, Canon 5D mark2 and QHY 5L-II guide camera. Everything works fine except the QHY camera. Every time I start Indi I get this error message "Kstars detected INDI driver indi_qhy_ccd crashed". What could be the cause?

Thank you.

Massimo

Jasem Mutlaq replied to the topic 'Local mode disabled in win10' in the forum. 3 hours 6 minutes ago

When you used the wizard, it asked you specifically to download INDI Server for Windows. This is the only way to use INDI "locally" on a Windows machine. Note that INDI Server for Windows does not support all functionality as it performs ASCOM-2-INDI translation and many features are missing. If you install INDI Server for Windows and have it up and running, then just set the IP address to 127.0.0.1 and port to 7624 and Ekos should connect to the local INDI server for windows.

INDI Server for Windows must be started and already connected to your devices. But all what I said above is already mentioned in the Ekos wizard anyway.

David Rankin replied to the topic 'QHY163M disconnect INDI' in the forum. 5 hours 40 minutes ago

Okay, after much more troubleshooting I think I have this narrowed down to the USB cables. Hard to believe that the camera is unhappy with 2 USB3 and 2 USB2 cables. I found another high quality USB2 shorter (6ft) cable that the camera seems to be happy with. I have the USB speed at 40 and am saving the images locally to the RP3, but I've gotten about 80 images in a row now without a disconnect. That is by far the best it's done so far.

Stephen created a new topic ' Ekos - TheSKYX - RPI3, and potential PHD2' in the forum. 6 hours 31 minutes ago

Hi,

I am considering at getting a new mount, potentially a Paramount.

Is anyone successfully running a Myt/Mx+ using a RPI3 with TheSKYX, PHD2 and Ekos/INDI/Kstars? I understand I can just use TSX, yet I am curious.

I am concerned about RAM and CPU, and whether there is enough resources to make all this realistically work.

Currently I have used the RPI3 and Ekos to run a CGEMDX, Moonlight focuser, ASI EFW/1600mm-c/173mm.

Thank you

Well, I can't confirm this camera will work with INDI. Seems to work find when I'm plugged into my laptop. With INDI, it wont stay connected. I'm starting to think the issue is with Kstars / Ekos. If I just close Kstars / Ekos when the camera stops responding, then restart it, everything works fine again.

Magnus created a new topic ' Newer abort guiding exposiure...' in the forum. 8 hours 59 minutes ago

Hi Jasem.

So for the first time I have tried some automation in Ekos, and I love it.. (I was plaing with Mosaic job creator, and it was easy to use after som learning).
I also got Orion SSAG + Celestron AVX to allways calibrate guiding IN TWO AXIES by changing algorithem to (Auto treshold?).

However the SSAG will allways fail if a exposiure is aborted!. It's 'qhy get single frame error (-1)' I think.
With some updates since last imaging sesion (last april), I do not have to reeboot the server as I did before. Simply disconnecting and re connecting QHY-xxxx fixes the error, but all automation failes.

One example is if I enable dithering after image. The guiding will be ABORTED and I get the error. And there is other issues. If I try to calibrate guiding I cannot use the STOP button if guiding fails, so I have to wait.

So is there a way to not abort guidecam exposiure? I think the feature of aborting will atmost be 0-3 seconds faster for the automation, in some cases.
Is it not better for the guide cam to just not start a new exposiure? So If you are guiding with 1.5 sec exposiure, then do not 'abort' the exposiure, let it finish, and do not start the next one?

I am not sure if this is is a big rewrite or why it aborts in the first place. However changing the guiding algoritem makes the SSAG finnally usable 'minus the abort funktion'.
If I make a version of the qhy_ccd drver that does not implement the 'Abort exposiure' feature, then what will happend? Will the desired behaviour occure? Exposiure cannot be aborted, so Ekos waits for exposiure to complete, then does not issue a new one?

I started this thread a year ago, but it was never picked up. www.indilib.org/forum/ccds-dslrs/1766-in...1-logs-included.html

Any help appreciated, Magnus...

I'm using an RP3 serving INDI. Connecting via a Lenovo Y700 running Windows 10. Seems to finally be working with the USB2. We'll see how reliable it is, going to setup now and test.

And another FYI, there is a 1.0.5 version of the QHY linux SDK available, but it is under a different folder.
qhyccd.com/bbs/index.php?topic=6241
No build for RPi yet though.
I’m still waiting on delivery of my 163M.

Rankinstudio, what hardware/OS combination are you using?

David Rankin replied to the topic 'QHY163M disconnect INDI' in the forum. 10 hours 1 minute ago

I don't really know what to say other than I have no luck at all with USB3 cameras. I bought a 12V 5A power supply and a pluggable 5A powered USB3 hub. The camera will still disconnect if I am using a USB3 cable. I am still using the USB3 cable I got with the QHY camera. I tried this setup with a very high quality USB2 cable and it seems to have resolved the issue. I have a higher quality USB3 cable on the way, we'll see if that makes a difference for the USB3 connection. For now it looks like I'll be sticking with the USB2 cable.

Thank you Magnus_e.

I'm sorry, the enthusiasm for the functionality was premature. Data is not updated and horizontal lines in charts.

I do not know Linux very much. I am a fan of astronomy.
Where should I find a bug or logs?

lukfer created a new topic ' Local mode disabled in win10' in the forum. 11 hours 41 minutes ago

Trying to run ekos for the first time in win 10, local mode is disabled (grey button).
I would like to use ekos on a laptop with all devices connected on it, so i need a local mode.
Wizar let me choose " devices connected to this computer" but in profiles local mode remains disabled.
How can i fix this issue? Is possible run ekos in local mode over win10?
Many thanks.

The wrong path is in meteoconfig.py. I also had to edit.

The wrong path is in the tutorial, see: indilib.org/support/tutorials/177-howto-...tml?showall=&start=1

Well.. Both paths are correct. I think it's /usr/local/share if you compile from source, and /usr/share if you install trough apt.
Not sure if that is correct, but depending on how you install, you would have one of the paths.
Usually on ubuntu things are placed in usr/local if it's not managed by the package manager (apt).

I have this to.
It's from the original code, that I did not write.
I might get around to checking if I can do something about it, but I don't know any python, so...

I have however not been able to find anything that does not work, and would be explaned by this error.
So you should be good to go, I think...
