Notice: A non well formed numeric value encountered in /mnt/data/vhosts/casite-460905.cloudaccess.net/httpdocs/plugins/system/tapatalk/tapatalk.php on line 147 HELP - RPI3 - ASI1600 - ASIGetExpStatus failed (0) - INDI Forum - Results from #1
The setup is one cable from ASI1600MM-c (imaging) to Mac, then using the ASI1600 hub the ASI EFW and ASI224MM-c (guider) is connected. This setup seems to allow images to save to the mac.
KStars on the Mac is connecting to the CloudMakers Indi Server. The indi_asi.xml needed to be copied from the IndiServer into the Kstar package, and all came up. Unfortunately this setup does not work in real use for me; it at least confirms the new hardware does work.
I will check another setup tonight on the RPI3 and report back. There is clearly a difference if the using the servermanager.py on the RPI3 instead of the indiserver within Ekos. In some cases the images seem to appearing the preview, some cases they do not, and in others they do not save to the RPI3 - they appear in the directory and disappear
Everything on the RPI3 was installed via apt-get per the tutorials.
Jan 18th I was able to connect my ASI224mc-c as a guide camera using Ekos local Indi server on RPI3. Now the camera will not connect at all. Jan 18th was first night with ASI1600mm-c. I thought I was just my in experience new camera.
To confirm all equipment (two cameras and EFW) works, I setup/connected all the equipment directly to my Mac using Kstars and Ekos. Everything worked.
So last night on RPI3 all indi-full and kstars was removed and reinstalled using apt-get hoping It may have corrected something. It did not.
I have now tried connecting only the previously working ASI224mc-c directly to RPI3 and it will not connect at all give error (5). The ASI1600mm-c connects with Ekos remotely/local but only local allows for a preview image.
Below is the indi_asi.xml at the location you mentioned.
The ASI1600mm-c is now capturing its image and saving the files. This is great.
The ZWP EFW is also working.
However, the ASI224mc-c will no longer connect: "Error connecting to the CCD (5)"
The specific log entry:
INFO 50.206727 sec : [ZWO CCD ASI224MC-Cool] Debug is enabled.
DEBUG 62.953859 sec : [ZWO CCD ASI224MC-Cool] Attempting to open ZWO CCD ASI224MC-Cool...
ERROR 62.955346 sec : [ZWO CCD ASI224MC-Cool] Error connecting to the CCD (5)
If there is more information I can provide let me know.
The ASI224 connected prior to Jan 19, as I used it as a guide camera the first night with ASI1600 when I found out images did not work, and in December with my canon DSLR.
You helped greatly with the Jan 23rd INDI updated - ASI1600 worked today.
ZWO helped as well with the ASI224. The said to make the indiserver run as root, and it corrected it. Although, I would prefer running as pi. Having everything work now was the goal!
I will create a test run tonight with the whole setup - ccd, guide, efw - to confirm all is good.
Aside, I will be testing running Ekos in a web browser off the RPI3. I can post the setup if it is of interest. My goal is to have everything running to be controlled from browser, so I can monitor from PC, iPad, phone...
Thank you so much for the great project and support.
You all replied so quick, and I am grateful for it. Sorry I was not able to update sooner. I wish to correct that now.
In short all seems to be working now. Hoping for clear skies tomorrow to confirm all works. Thank you all for the great support it is most appreciated.
- Not successful
- INDIserver/servermanager.py running as user pi. ASI224 fails to connect. Potential solution is to move the 99-asi.rules to /etc/udev/rules.d instead of /lib/udev/rules.d. I have not been able to get this to work yet, and assume it is something I missed.
- Configuring ZWO CCD in the CCD and guider section.
- Successful: (allowing Ekos to work so far)
- Jan 23rd update allowed ASI1600 to capture and save as expected.
- INDIserver, or servermanager.py running as user root works: ASI24 connects. 99-asi.rules is left in /lib/udev/rules.d
- Both ZWO cameras configured in INDIServer as CCDs only; guiders is left blank
Remaining tests - mount tracking, ASI224 auto guiding, while ASI1600 and ASI EFW doing captures.
