Will Live Video ever be supported on the ASI cameras on OS X?

Stephen replied to the topic 'Re:Capture & Solve -> Slew to Target...' in the forum. 6 hours 58 minutes ago

I hope to work through some of this this week. Not sure what I am fully getting into yet.

I can say that last nights RPI3 imaging session worked amazingly well. The only thing pending is the nudging the mount to centre the RA/DEC:
- The celestron GPS driver controlled things well
- pulse guide calibrated a lot better then the ST-4
- PHD2 guided well consider how low NGC 7293 was
- the scheduler worked great.

The meridian flip needed my intervention to re-center which I am not good at yet - sigh, took about 30. Once done things continued on until twighlight.

If this nudging can be added... oh my! I may post back with questions as I work though things.

Stephen replied to the topic 'Re:Astroberry Server' in the forum. 7 hours 7 minutes ago

openVPN can work quite well. Going this route does require thinking through what you want to achieve, and where you put your openVPN entrance (if it can be on your home router it can be easier.) This page worked for me: openvpn.net/index.php/open-source/docume...n/howto.html#install

Implement the most basic connections first, and then add in the security as you need. It can really be as complex and you wants. If using iOS you will need a TUN connection.

The iptables can be the most complicated; this link helped me: allanmcrae.com/2013/09/routing-traffic-with-openvpn/

Sorry to intrude on the astroberry server thread. If there is interest please move this to different thread (or create new one).

Ken Self replied to the topic 'ASI Camera - Gain/Offset/x-Bit' in the forum. 11 hours 12 minutes ago

And if I want to correct a wrong setting on a job is this the right procedure?:
Double click the job to go into edit mode
Enter correct settings in Control Panel
Click Custom Properties
Click Apply (since the control group is already selected)

By the way, for ASI owners, the Offest is labelled Brightness
Also, my earlier issue is resolved and I can edit the numbers. I suspect it was something to do with not having 12V power to the camera. The camera works without 12V but appears to be less stable.
As another related question (still learning all the features in Ekos): I want to set up a sequence of LLRGB that repeats with different gain/offset for L vs RGB. So I set up the sequence with 4 items (with L having a count of 2). So I guess I then set up the Scheduler to run the whole sequence, say, 50 times?

Hi all,

when i use the DSS colored HIPS view, i have a small shift between kstars and the dss display when i'm above 2.5 fov (in this fov, the 2 stars are in the same place). See screenshot below.

Richard Beck replied to the topic '14 bits per pixel ASI 224C?' in the forum. 15 hours 9 minutes ago

I thought I had used 16 bit before successfully. I don't know if it's the PixInsight BPP script missing the debayer step (complained no CFA images) post upgrade to 1.8.5 or something else. I was able to successfully debayer the files I thought were 16 bit monochrome.

Now I need to complete preprocessing.

Eric Vickery replied to the topic 'ASI Camera - Gain/Offset/x-Bit' in the forum. 17 hours 53 minutes ago

knro wrote: This won't work, what if a camera has ISO + Gain + Offset ...etc? At any rate, I implemented a solution, I removed Gain setting and replaced it with a new setting: Custom Properties. So using Custom Properties, you can set any number of properties in the sequence from the list of available numeric properties, but you have to set it first in INDI Control Panel, then "record" it in the sequence then proceed as normal. It should be in v2.8.1 due some time next week.


So if I am understanding correctly. I set the gain, offset, etc... in the Indi control panel, then choose "controls" in the Custom Properties. Now when I add an entry to my sequence it will use the gain, offset, etc... settings I set in the Indi control panel.

Here's some screenshots showing what I trying to do, and perhaps it's just user error. I will post server logs soon.

Ken Self replied to the topic '14 bits per pixel ASI 224C?' in the forum. 19 hours 38 minutes ago

RGB24 is 8 bits per color per pixel - 24 bits in total after debayering.
Sounds like you want RAW16 which you could debayer in software. This would be the 14 bit result left shifted 2 bits (multiplied by 4) to make up the 16 bits.
The SDK offers:
ASI_IMG_RAW8 = 0,// 1 byte every pixel
ASI_IMG_RGB24,// Each pixel consists of RGB, 3 bytes totally (color cameras only)
ASI_IMG_RAW16,// 2 byte every pixel
ASI_IMG_Y8,// mono mode,1 byte every pixel (color cameras only)
