Hey.
I uploaded the files to thingiverse :)
I updated the original thread I had on the 'Dark Cap' so It won't hijack @pauledd's thread

As I have recieved my Prusa 3d printer, there is now a new 3d printable prototype on thingiverse.

It was a drop in replacement for the original DIY part I based the tutorial on, but now slightly less DIY as a 3d printer is involved.

Good to hear it works :)

The picture was first print of the protltype, and 4th print total. I finished assebeling my Prusa mk2s yesterday :)

The aluminum version you ar making should work just fine, I think.
If I remember correctly I installed the prototype from the tutorial in my observatory in November and it still works great (and that one is held togheter only with tape and glue.)

Ok. Let me know how it turns out.

This was a funny coincidence. Yesterday I 3d printet the first prototype of the printable dust cap :)
I have to figure out how to get better finish when printing with supports (this was my 4th print), but hopefully It wil turn out nice after some dev.

Hi @pauledd
I got your message on my website :)

By the looks of your errors I suspect you might not have compiled indilib from source, but installed from ppa (apt-get)?
If so, then try compiling indi from source indilib.org/forum/general/210-howto-buil...st-libindi-ekos.html

Other than that, there might have been a update to indilib, and I have to update the driver. I will try to update everything to latest version, to see that it works. (You should not need to copy indi*.h files anywhere)

If there are links not working in the tutorial, then all the instructions is also on github. github.com/magnue/indi_servoblaster_cap/blob/master/README.md

Hi.
After seeing that KStars has gotten new notifications settings I put together a small node gmail client (MailMeMessage) that can be used with the 'Script' option for notifications.

Syntax is real simple, so to set a alert for 'Video capture started' the syntax would be.

mmm -m "Capturing video"

Just have to figure out how to get the notification settings in KStars.

MailMeMessage can be cloned here: github.com/magnue/MailMeMessage
Let me know if it works or not :)

Hi.

Earlier today I saw the new movie with video capture in Ekos and Notification setup in KStars.
I tried updating with apt update / upgrade, but did not get it, so I pulled the git repo and compiled, and still no notification settings.
The new Video capture is there in Ekos.

I have compiled and installed all mandetory and optional dependencies.
System is Kubuntu 16.04 LTS
Linux workstation 4.4.0-59-generic #80-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jan 6 17:47:47 UTC 2017 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Magnus replied to the topic 'Orion Starshoot Autoguider' in the forum. 4 months ago

So this is something that must be investigated!

I have a perfectly clear night, witch is not usual. It's a lot of moon, but I'm imaging my first nb session :woohoo:

So today I did not manage to calibrate the qhy at all. No matter what I did it would not reach start point after 30 iterations.
So what I noticed, was that it never complained about ra, only dec.
So I turned off calibration of dec. At this point the guider did not know that I have to swap de, so I enabled that manually.

What happened the? First the dec axis was dropping all the way to -20 or something, in the passing of a minute or so, but then it gradually got back on track!
It's like guiding is a self calibrating effort :)
Just look at the guide graph after it settled, and notice it's qhy5 via qhy5.
Not sure, but I'm thinking the calibration algorithm is not agreeing with the qhy5.

First picture is guiding started with uncalibrated dec, second is after it had settled. Looks like it's working just fine to me.
