Yes i have the ASI 120, and as i see the firmware on it is old (v3.0.0.5). I downloaded now the latest (v3.19), will upgrade the cam tomorrow.
For the bit depth problem, the sollution is already applied in the config as posted before.

Hi,
Just checked, and there is no new firmware for the ASI120MC. The FWUpdater Tool says it has the firmware V3.0.

Also unable to correctly stop indi.allsky. When i send the "systemctl --user stop indi-allsky" command, it takes minutes, and after that i see the status:
pi@indi-allsky:~ $ systemctl --user status indi-allsky

Also i see that video0 device is busy maybe:

        /dev/video23
        /dev/media0
        /dev/media1
 
Cannot open device /dev/video0, exiting.

Laszlo,
If this is the USB 2 type ASI 120 MC model it will no longer work with Linux operating systems. You will need one of the newer USB3, ASI120 MC-S cameras or USB C, ASI120 mini for it to work.

Hope this helps

Until today at 13h it was working. I have the ASI 120 MC (black USB connector on the side).

Laszlo,

Yes it will sort of work, especially if you have got the compatible firmware "asi120mm-compatible.iic" installed it will show some sort of image, but it will be mainly broken & distorted and the exposure controls don't fully work, There are a few threads about this subject on the forum. It would be worth a search through and have a read up on it.

Regards

Alan

Is it possible to use an IMX-291 camera from those sold on Aliexpress? I'm trying to make one work but I think the driver I chose in the installation ( 24 indi_sony_ccd) is a wrong option.

I think you would use the indi_v4l2_ccd server.
