Hello,
I'm new a newcomer.... :)
I installed the latest version astroberry on a raspi 3, with on board pi camera.
My goto system is onstep.I have created a new profile step by step.
As soon I start INDI
I don't see the a tab raspi-camera inside the INDI control Panel

In EKOS I get this error message."Unable to remotley establish:
+RPI Camera
Please ensure the device is connected and powered on"To check the rpi-camera is working, I have tested the camera.
Inside a terminal I run next commandraspistill -o test.jpgThe rpi-camera made a picture.

Please help....
What do I need to do?

Kind regards,

Wolf

From your pictures, test1.jpg appears to have the resolution of a v1 camera. As far as I know, the driver only supports the HQ camera.

Looks like a 5 megapixel camera equivalent to the version 1 (v1). The camera that the driver was written for is the HQ camera:

I see from your other post that you have not started an INDI driver for your camera.
You use remote mode in your Ekos profile so you have to add the driver where LX200 OnStep is added. What you are doing now is using remote mode and selecting LOCAL drivers. It's not going to work.
I'm taking a guess that you define your drivers using left-side floating menu. Add camera driver there and start the profile. THEN add it to Ekos profile in remote mode OR don't use left-side floating menu for selecting your devices and define you Ekos profile using local mode.
