Hi,

I am running the version 1.9.4 of INDI on the latest version of astroberry.
My setup is:
* EQ6 Pro mount
* DSLR Nikon D750 + D4s (tried both): manual mode, bulb.

I have an issue. When I schedule a sequence of multiple photos, the sequence takes only one photo. Then it says that it is taking the next photo but it doesn't.
Same issue with both cameras. They are put on Manual, bulb.
At INDI side, I have tried with default INDI settings and tried both options: force bulb and don't.
Same issue occurs with Astroberry and Stellarmate, both on Raspberry Pi 4.

Any help would be appreciated.


Kind regards,
Cristian

Check the condition for mirror lockup. It's an option in the INDI driver, but if used, the features needs to be enabled in the camera menus. They both need to be set either both on or both off to not conflict.

I still encounter the same issue.

Nikon cameras have a dedicated knob position "MuP" (Mirror Up). I had initially used this position but also tried the Single-shot position but the problem continues to occur.
I think that it is important to mention that, once the issue starts, I mean after the first photo is taken, the DSLR doesn't take any photo at all anymore, even if I restart the sequence or the INDI driver. I have to turn the DSLR off and back on and then, it works again.

Meanwhile, I have managed to get the log.
From what I see, at the first photo, the log says:
"[DEBUG] Setting exposure widget bulb index: 52 "
"[DEBUG] Setting radio/menu widget shutterspeed2: 52 (Bulb) "
"[DEBUG] Setting new configuration OK. "
"[DEBUG] Using internal bulb widget:bulb "
"[DEBUG] Setting toggle widget bulb: 1 "
"[DEBUG] Setting new configuration OK. "

while at the second run I see:
"[DEBUG] Using internal bulb widget:bulb "
"[DEBUG] Setting toggle widget bulb: 1 "
"[DEBUG] Failed to set new configuration value (GP result: -1) "

See full log below:

Cristian,

I think you spottet the issue in the log file. I have no idea why it would set "toggle widget bulb to 1" once but not again though. I just checked with my Canon 5DMk2 and it succeeded in taking a number of pictures using the sequence queue. I have to admit the first thing that came to my mind when I read about your problem was "mirror lock" just like Andrew suggested. I have no idea how mirror lock is handled in Nikon cameras.

I see the logfile states the scheduler was used. Did you try the same using the sequence queue? I assmume the same issue occurs?

Regards
Alfred

I think that I have found a solution by setting the option "Force BULB" to ON in the Options tab of the DSLR. Gave it a few tries and, so far, it seems to work properly.

Force Bulb = ON is the recommended setting for exposures longer than 1s. In your original message you wrote: "At INDI side, I have tried with default INDI settings and tried both options: force bulb and don't." so I had the impression your attempts failed regardless of the Force Bulb setting. Anyway, good to hear it's working for you now!

Honestly, I had initially used the default values and crosschecked that Force Bulb On was On. And I had the same result as described earlier.
Later on, I have upgraded to Indilib 1.9.5. The initial version was the one that came with the Stellarmate version I had downloaded one month ago; I can't say which version it was.

Kind regards,
Cristian
