Thanks, yes it crashes and is restarted. If you can run it under gdb (instructions are somewhere on this forum, can't browse with this phone unfortunately) that would give where the crash happens. It does get pretty far in initialization though.

I've had some instability with V4L2 sometimes. (Before and after this patch) I haven't tracked it down.

Nothing the patch does should have caused that unless there's an assumption about pixel size. (Which wouldn't be the problem in the logs above, since it went with the default. So as far as the code, the only difference is the message. )

I appreciate your work, and just pushed a few more, that I don't know if they work, and added a tested option, so that things can be added, and if they work, they can be marked as tested.

INDI as far as I know doesn't have an easy way to get that information, or any surveys. I know I am ambivalent on them, but maybe add an option in Kstars to generate a report of data that could be posted somewhere could be something looked at? Because sometimes it's hard to tell if people are using something or if it was working years ago, but got broken. (Any way it's done, it's imperfect.)

Just installed gdb, and ran it and it worked, so i ran it again without gdb and it still worked, so i think your update finally came down to my machine. Thank you for fixing it for me.

Well, I only when wondering if it'd been merged, figured out I hadn't submitted the pull request for the latest one. Ooops. I did, since Celestron published a PDF listing the pixel sizes, add that.

Does anyone know of a good database of UVC cameras (webcams) and pixel sizes? (I've found I have to search a fair bit sometimes, based on the ones I own.)

It seems the reported name in the post above is the same for several generic camera boards using the Sony IMX290 color version. I have a version purchased on Aliexpress with a product name of "2mp Camera module"

Reported Name In Indi using V4l2 driver: USB 2.0 Camera: USB Camera Common Name: Generic USB Camera Module IMX290
Pixel size 2.9um x 2.9um

Using the INDI webcam driver, there is no access to adjust this cameras settings (brightness, contrast, gamma, gain, etc.) but will give a looping feed in Ekos for guiding. If selecting V4L2 CCD the settings are available but there is no image when trying to use it under Ekos.

Hi all,

I am not sure what information you will need, but its the first time I am seeing this mesage, and yet not the first time it has been plugged in.
