Dear knro,
I have a concern to get the nightly ppa, as my setup is working nice,
so if I get the it, do I have to do again wizard steps? Or Can I save the "old setup" for keeping all same configurations?

Hi folks,


Last night I did my first tests using NS 8300:
CCD recognized
ekos drive operational, ..

but downloaded images came with problems, please see attached the Print Screen.

I tried Raw and Compress mode, as well changing pooling values.

Related to images LUT : histogram and auto-stretch changes didn't work out.

Hi,

You're getting truncated images- basically the driver can't download the whole framebuffer because there's a usb synchronization issue.
What system is indi-nightscape running on?
Also, please make sure you have the latest libftdi1 package installled.
Please make sure that on Linux you have the updated udev rules installed for a usb buffer size increase. You will get this kind of problem all the time unless you increase the buffer size correctly.
You can also try running indi-nightscape as root, but i can't recommend that.

Regards,

Dirk

There should be a file in /lib/udev/rules.d called:

99-nightscape.rules

Containing:
ACTION=="add", ATTR{idVendor}=="19b4", RUN+="/bin/sh -c '/bin/echo 256 >/sys/module/usbcore/parameters/usbfs_memory_mb'"
# All Celestron Nightscape Cameras
SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="19b4", MODE="0666"

Hi, i have read in the driver page that it can be used with the nightscape model #95555. This one is the camera that has the KAI-10100 sensor. Did someone manage to get this cammera working with the driver.

Tanks in advance

Hi, It's never been tested with the KAI-10100 version. It may sort-of work, but probably won't work at all.

The first thing i need is lsusb output and a full debug output from the driver during startup to see what is actually happening.

Better yet, lend me a camera for a few weeks and i'll proabbly be able to get it working ;-)

We would like to lend you the cammera, but we are located in Uruguay and it's a bit expensive to send it, of course we will send you the debug output, can you guide us how to get it? We have already turned on the debug option in Ekos but when pressing connect it only displays "[DEBUG] open failed!".
Is there a way to debug from console?

Thank you very much.
