Major INDI Library release v1.9.0 bring significant internal changes championed by @pawel-soja to modernize core INDI Library drivers and clients. New drivers for DeepSkyDad Flat Panel & Pegasus devices plus further improvements to PCM8 drivers.
Sorry, what i mean by the reverse button not working is if i tell ekos to focus out 1000 steps, the focuser moves in 1000 steps. then if i hit the reverse button in order to reverse that wrong directional move, it still moves in, not out like the reverse button should do. hope that makes sense. i did pull the source down from git and compiled it. that version is working correctly.
I'd also like to say one more thing. I hope it doesn't sound like I'm complaining here. I want it known that I have been using kstars/ekos with indi drivers for just over a yr now. I have been extremely pleased with them. Until the other night when this issue showed up with the ZWO focuser, I couldn't have been more pleased. I'm not sure what changed the other night, I dont remember running updates on that pi, but maybe I did. All I can say is I am SO proud of everyone that maintains these packages. To all of you developers, THANK YOU
So this isn't working for me, the guidance for this focuser is to set 0 when the tube is fully retracted and then adjust the max for max tube focuser extension - problem I have is that the steps are 0 to 10000, so if I set the tube fully in and set that as 0, the motor direction is wrong if I command a move to say 2000. If the motor reverse was working, then that would move the tube out rather than in.
I've managed to get the focuser working as it's relative at the end of the day if you dont worry about the 0 position though this of course means that positioning without a 0 reference point that is repeatable is not useful!
Any idea when this fix in the nightly will make it to the Astroberry version of Ekos?
OK - I've downloaded the 3rd party drivers from github and compiled the ASI driver, I then ran sudo make install
BUT... I still have no motor reverse behaviour - if I set direction FOCUS IN and set Relative position to 1000 steps I expect the focus tube to move IN but it actually moves OUT. If I toggle Reverse Motion, I get the same behaviour.
In Ekos, the driver reports as indi_asi_focuser, Version 1.0, Interface 8 and firmware is 3.1.9
Is there something specific to Astroberry that I am missing here?
Do I need to fully build indiserver rather than the installed version ( INDI Library: 1.8.5 Code v1.8.4-93-g6a13bd11. Protocol 1.7.)
I had the same problem while going from version 1.8.1 to version 1.8.5 (bleeding under Fedora).
The "reverse" button no longer worked and the focuser used the direction opposite to that requested.
It was not EKOS (Kstars) which was in question since I had the same problem through PyIndi.
The recompiled version 1.8.5 also didn't work.
However, yesterday's git version works again.
I would not have had the idea if I had not seen this post.
Thank you very much !
Hi. I'm having same issue, and it's just in the last 24 hours. I, too, don't remember doing an update, but one may have occurred without my knowing. I read the manual and some of the drivers, including ASCOM, have a software means for reversing the motor, and, I think that would be a fix. I'll be watching carefully for other possible fixes (I run EKOS on an RPi and my other computer is a MAC, so ASCOM is not an easy option for me). Thanks for starting this thread and looking forward to a fix.
Update: After updating Lib to v1.8.5 and updating Ekos, including all drivers, ZWO EAF is working perfectly, again. Can't say for sure which update fixed the problem, but happy to be back in business. Thanks, all.
