Hi all, so I just ran an update, which I will guess updated indilib. I don't know how to tell which version of indi I'm running unfortunately.

In any case, connecting to the QHY268C now crashes kstars, which is unfortunate as I just got it yesterday (and it worked fine yesterday) ... and today is a cloud-free day :(

Please let me know what I can do to get this working, hopefully before dark.

I am using stellarmate 1.7.2 64 bit, latest stable (just ran the stellarmate update)
The log from indi shows this:

My indilib version is 1.9.7.

I started an indi server manually and it starts. When ekos attempts to connect, it crashes (And I have no idea where it's logs are, or maybe it doesn't even manage to write any), indilib says read: connection reset by peer, del property (camera name here in xml tag) and restarts the camera driver.

I don't know what this update did to stellarmate but it's boken wrt this camera now ... I did check that the camera works on my PC, FYI.

Additional information: I ran the updater again. Because I don't know where the stellarmate updater logs live, I know that it updated Kstars to 3.6.1 (yay!) but I don't know if it did this now or before.

INDIlib is still at 1.9.7 though.

Thanks, that worked. One strange thing I'm running into is that the FITSviewer won't debayer the image. The FITS field BAYERPAT is not set, but there's obviously a bayer pattern there. I figure I can correct this manually by adding the field value, but will that work? The files are a bit smaller than they were before the upgrade (they were 60MB, now they are 50)

Check INDI control panel --> image settings, what's set there?

There's FITS, RAW ... type Light. There's nothing that says mono or color like I've seen for other cameras. Compression is set to none, and in Image Info the bayer offset is 0,0 and the filter field is empty.

There should be bayer pattern property in image settings or image info tab.

Definitely not seeing that. Is there a tag I can insert into the configuration?

I am showing the QHY SDK at version 22.7.28 ... should I be expecting to see 22.9.9?
