INDI Library v1.9.8 Released (29 Sep 2022)

Bi-monthly INDI Library released with new drivers and bug fixes.

Can't get "Amp Glow" Option in EKOS for QHY163m

No, this is the official response:

We have set some camera to force anti-ampv enabled. So these camera's amp glow setting is removed. For these camera it will automatically enable the ampv control.

The official response from QHYCCD:

In fact, we have automatically turned on the amplifier glow controller in the firmware and set it to be turned on by default. So the current image is the effect of turning on the amplifier glow controller. However, due to the limitation of the CMOS chip, this camera cannot completely avoid the effects of amplifier glow.Most of our new generation CMOS cameras have achieved zero glow, such as QHY268 and QHY600

I can't be really sure because I don't know this exact model, but all qhy cameras don't have a resident firmware fixed in the hardware.

What happens is the firmware included in the driver installation gets loaded inside the camera every time it's powered on. So you only need to make sure you have an up to date version of the indi driver to have the latest firmware.

Please anybody correct me if I'm wrong.

I hope that you wrote is right.
At this time the repository does not have packages updated to latest version, for 32bit systems.
There are updates for the 64bit

x86 32bit was discontinued long ago. Only 64bit and armhf/arm64 is supported.

I know, i use an Raspberry system based on raspbian os at 32bit. There is no way to migrate the current system to the new 64bit, without reinstall all the stuffs?

I can only recommend to create a small .sh script with everything you do to install the system (and copy all your config files to the correct location, etc).

That way you only change your settings one, define it in your shell script (which you can have on github) and a reinstall will be fast and everything will be setup again.

Kind of like I did here: github.com/RononDex/dotfiles/blob/master/AstroPi-README.md

Hi,
I noticed that in the INDI version 1.9.5, the QHYCCD 183M driver reports that che camera 183M does not have the AMPGLOW control.
I remenber in older version that this is present and it was enabled/disabled.
Please check it and let the user to controll it
