Hi, I have managed to setup Ekos and Kstars, it has detected my Nikon Z6 camera and I can see a video preview, so I know the camera is talking to Raspberry Pi, when I try to take a test image, the shutter fires and then the wheel in Ekos spins, then the software crashes, I suspect it has to do with either the file type or where I'm trying to save it. I have read that on Nikons the images need to saving to the card in the camera ?, so that is what I have tried to setup. I'm not sure if its the setting in Indi or Ekos that is causing the problem. Does anyone have a working Z6 ? if so could they share the correct settings that work for them please.

I have a Nikon Z6 and it works just fine in Ekos on StellarMate. I write raw files to the camera SD card and FITS to my pictures folder in StellarMate. I have the capturetarget setting in the indi driver set to SD instead of RAM. This was a carryover setting from my old Nikon d7000 that required it, but it seems to hold true for my Z6 as well.

I'm having tons of issues with my Nikon Z6 as well (www.indilib.org/forum/ccds-dslrs/8642-ks...with-dslr.html#66961)

Anyone that is having this working I'd love to know the details of your INDI settings to see if I can get mine working.
