In case we buy such sensors, we should take that offline from here.

hello
I have a question, how to set the right value for the sky temperature for cloud detection.
Because I notice that now that the temperature becomes wintery the detection is not precise enough anymore.

Do I have to change each time at the change of season, or is it a ratio between the temperature, for example, the temperature of the cloudless sky and x degree less than the ambient temperature?

Thank you

Hello,

there's an explanation about it in indiduino.wordpress.com/2013/02/02/meteostation/
and you can modify the code in github.com/indilib/indi-3rdparty/blob/ma.../weathercalculator.h

It's even easier, you can calibrate the sensor parameters directly through the INDI interface:
github.com/sterne-jaeger/indi-3rdparty/b...g-weather-parameters

For explanation about K1..K5, see the section "Tuning Sky Temperature Parameters" in lunatico.es/aagcw/enhelp/

For tweaking the parameters I have an Excel so that I can import CSV data from a RRD export - see attachment. With some Excel knowledge it should be possible to understand how it works. For questions, send me a PN.

Rain Sensor RG-11,

Hi Wolfgang,
What do you think, will we order such a Sensor? I send out a request to an international company, so let’s wait until I get an answer.
Can you please advise how to install Weather radio, including the web pages? I could not find it in the readme’s. Thanks

Hi Gunter,
the documentation is here: github.com/sterne-jaeger/indi-3rdparty/b...adme-WeatherRadio.md

Regarding the RG-11: If we order three items, it should work with customs and the shipping costs are reasonable. I'll send you a PN.

Hello,
So I've read the links you've put, but it's more for the setting of kstars, that's OK.
On the other hand, how to configure the code, to have a good value in the web page.
Because if the sensor marks sky temperature -7C° it tells me no clouds, whereas the right value would be more -23C°.

So I can adjust this value in the weather radio code.

That's a misunderstanding, it's not about KStars configuration.

What you need is an INDI client so that you can change the parameters of the INDI device - KStars has one, but if you have another one, fine. Parameter calibration is done through INDI configuration, there is no need to change the code.

OK, but unfortunately I couldn't find in the configuration tab of weatherradio or change the temperature.
