Have you tried using official WiringPi from wiringpi.com/ instead the one located on github? According to wiringpi.com:

There is a version of wiringPi hosted on Github. Do not use this version of wiringPi. It only exists to facilitate building the Ruby and Python wrappers which have been written by Gadgetoid.

It looks great! I will include original astroberry driver in the next release of Astroberry Server. Stay tuned ;-)

I think it is an issue with VNC server (used to access desktop with internet browser). Does the issue persist after reboot? You can reboot by accessing terminal over ssh, then issue sudo reboot to safely restart the device. If it persists after reboot try removing /home/astroberry.Xauthority file and reboot again.

Radek Kaczorek created a new topic ' Autofocus failure is aborting exposure' in the forum. 4 days ago

I faced an issue during an imaging session last night. I was capturing light frames so I configured a session with Ekos CCD module, using "Autofocus if HFR >" feature (as I always do). I never toggle Auto Select Star in Ekos Focus module so I can select a star at the beginning of a session. So far it worked OK, however last night session was aborted. I reviewed the logs (attached) and see following scenario:

  1. Focus deadlock reached so focuser is moving back to initial focus position
  2. Restarting autofocus process
  3. Capture complete. Select a star to focus.
  4. No star was selected. Aborting
  5. Autofocus failed. Aborting exposure

Until last night Ekos focus module was keeping a star manually selected at the beginning of a session and in case of failure it restarted with the same star subframed. What happened last night was an initial full frame image was captured in focus module and it was waiting for user input to select a star. No preselected star was used and the capture was not subframed with prefailure bounding box. I assume that using Auto Select star would avoid getting into this situation. However the question is why the preselected star is not remembered. Any ideas?

Listing available wireless networks has been fixed. Please run astroberry-update to refresh your system. Any comments welcomed

Well, it should work without any problem. Make sure that your hotspot is set to WPA/WPA2 mode and check /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf file to confirm that your wireless configuration is OK. That's exactly what I use in the field, while away from my home network. I use LTE hotspot and I connect Astroberry Server to it so I have Internet access. In such the case I can connect to Astroberry Server over local network setup by the hotspot and/or directly via astroberry hotspot. Not mentioning public IP, while port forwarding is properly configured on the hotspot.

You can do it by editing /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

That's the way Astroberry Server works. Except hotspot is always on.
You can achieve this by setting up VAP (virtual access point), which means running two wireless interfaces on a single physical interface.

I'm glad it worked fine. I will take look at the code and make sure that it doesn't need any updates.

You're welcome. VNC might eat a lot of bandwith, depending on your screen resolution. I would disconnect it while guiding.
Also you can consider running everything on RPi i.e. KStars and PHD2. This way you use your wireless for VNC only and can disconnect Mac anytime not loosing your imaging session if the link gets down. Try ready to use Astroberry Server image for your RPi. If you don't like it you can come back to your standard setup.

Radek Kaczorek replied to the topic 'PHD2 on RPi3 running INDI Server?' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

I assume you run KStars on Mac. If it is the case it's better to run PHD2 on RPi (to minimize data transfers). However you need VNC connection to RPi to start and control PHD2. If it's not an option for you you need to run PHD2 on Mac but wireless link might be an issue. Especially while your captured image from the main CCD is downloaded to Mac over wireless - it saturates the link pretty effectively. You can try it anyway.

If you connect to astroberry access point it always has IP 192.168.10.1
I have no idea why windows VNC client would not connect if it works from MacOS. VNC should work from any system. Just remember to use port 5900
