Excited about this update Aaron - even more-so if we can get the appropriate INDIlib driver sorted as I'm sure people using the library will have other applications where these cameras could be used.

This update was really more of an experiment for me to see if I could acquire images from other sources. The time lapse part of the code does not particularly care where the data comes from.

It was never my intention to push for a new driver in indi. I am not that subtle. :-) Although, I can see how my post could be perceived that way.

Recently, I have been following the Allsky Camera group on facebook and there has been a lot of activity and interest in the new Waveshare IMX378-190 camera that has an integrated lens. It is a compelling product at $50 and is perfect for all sky cameras, although I think the view might be a bit too wide.

Hi all,
is there an easy way to change the web page's port?
I tried to edit /etc/apache2/ports.conf and virtual port on /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/allsky-indi.conf without success or the only option is to edit setup.sh and install again?
Best regards
Pierre

You can run setup.sh as many time as you need. It will not hurt your existing installation.

You can either edit setup.sh or just edit the /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/allsky-indi.conf file directly. You just need to restart the apache2 service when finished.

I believe the setup.sh script comments out the Listen directives in ports.conf, so the only file you need to edit is the site.

I am continuing to make improvements to indi-allsky.

I was able to implement an interesting enhancement. Since indi drives the underlying camera, I decided to integrate [virtual] telescope and GPS functionality from the respective servers. I used the Telescope Simulator and the GPSd servers to get information about where the camera is located as well as where it is pointed. The telescope simulator is [virtually] slewed to the zenith of the current location which is detected by GPS.

Since the Telescope Simulator is used, if the FITS files are exported, they are properly tagged with time, site latitude/longitude, and RA/dec of the sky for each image.
