Canon EOS 600D issue capturing images (Video works OK) #57028
Hello there, everyone.

I'm starting to setup my automated astronomy gear using a Manjaro Linux notebook with KStars, a Canon EOS 600D DSLR and some other equipment. So I've built INDI on my system myself and was able to connect the Canon DSLR with Ekos on KStars, really nice.

The problem is that even tho I can connect to the camera and even use the "Live Video" feature with no problem, I face issues whenever I try to perform a normal capture. And that started to happen after I have configured the DSLR information on Ekos. Before configuring it I was able to take 2 pictures. But then I think I did something that broke it, I really don't know.

I already tried to create a fresh profile and reset configs, but no success.

I've collected all my logs and taken screenshots of the INDI config: https://gist.github.com/fschuindt/2436b9b0cffbfbcdfa19593e86b329a4

I think that's it, any tip/idea/comments? I'm trying to find my way out of this for a while now without any progress, so any idea is more than welcome.

Thank you all!

Hello, knro. Thanks for replying.

Yes, as this page shows content for the same camera I have here, I even tried to mimic the same values. But stills the same, live video works fine, capturing fails.

I've also found an YouTube video of someone using the same camera with KStars/Ekos, followed all his steps on the video and got the same result: video OK, capturing fails:


But yes, I've read the entire page, also all the posts of the FAQ topic within the forum.

Still can't find hints about the problem here. :(

Maybe this is a mirror lock issue. ML setting in the camera has to be the same as in Indi/Ekos, either both on or both off.

Thank you, Herrhausen. You were right, I had it 'On' on Ekos and 'Off' on the camera. After fixing this I was able to take pictures with it, thank a lot!
