I have not tried that. To work as a good guidecamera I need to implement subframing first, that way the loop-time should be better. I does seem to be quite sensitive, with back illumination and all but I have not tested myself yet but I will.
Hi, I would like to buy a high quality camera for the Pi in the near future. Currently I'm trying to use the RPI camera driver, a V2 camera on the Raspberry Pi to test if it works as I think it will before I invest more money.
I can also select the driver in Ekos, but I always get the following error (see picture)
After that the driver supports. Do you have an idea what could be the reason for this ?
Could you maybe describe briefly what I have to do to test your driver ?
I have already managed to compile parts from the indi-3rdparty package, but I don't know how to use your driver.
Thanks a lot !
I haven't had any luck with indi_raspistill yet. It still barks on startup. Correct me if I am wrong (because it doesn't work with the HQ camera either), but indi_rpicam is for the original Pi camera, not the new HQ, correct?
SkyWatcher 10" SynScan Goto Dobsonian, SV106 Guide, ZWO ASI178MC, Svbony SV105, SV305, Pi3HQcam, Pi4, DIY WaveShare focuser, Linux Ubuntu, KStars/Ekos, Carte du Ciel/CCDCiel, AstroDMx_Capture, Siril, StarTools, GIMP
I've got a problem with the indi_rpicam driver.
The exposure time i set in ekos does not change the picture exposure for exposures longer than 1 sec. It take the requested time to have a picture ex 30sec but the light in the image is not changing, for time shorter than 1sec it works as aspected.
In raspistill it all works as aspected.
My best regards.
1. Connect Ekos to the Raspberry HQ Cam
2. just set the exposure to higher 10 sec, maybe 20sec
3. Set the gain
Now you can play with the settings and they will be applied.
If I set the gain before exposure, they will all be ignored.
