I tried the Canon DSLR focuser today but the lens doesn't move when I click Focus in/out in EKOS-Focuser tab. Is this feature already implemented?
I tried with different cameras (1000D/550D/6D) and different lenses (18-55/28-135mm) and AF/MF setting.
My setup: Odroid XU4, Ubuntu Mate 16.04, kstars-bleeding and indi-full from repo.
Thanks it works when I activate and deactivate preview mode. Unfortunately it seems to be not very stable with my 1000D. Indi crashed many times with preview mode or capturing didn't stop. I will do more tests the next days.
So I did further tests with an EOS 1000D. When starting Indi from Ekos, connect the camera and start the preview mode I can control the focus. But when I click on autofocus/framing/capture in Ekos with e.g. 4s exposure time the camera starts taking a picture but doesn't stop after 4s. I can only turn the camera off an on to stop the capture. The video preview window closes when I start the capture. This happened in 90% of my tests. It worked only two or three times.
This is the log of my Indi control panel
