Hello,
I just received my new ZWO 178MM camera.
I tested it on kstars in local, on the USB3 port of my laptop.
Each time I ask for a preview I get 2 successive scans any duration I ask and get the image only after the second one.
Can you tell me if you know the reason of this behavior ?
Thank you
Patrick

No one as any idea of what the problem can be ?
Clear nights are coming, it would be nice to have a solution to bypass the problem before. :(

Hi Patrick,

do you have tested with others thing that indi/ekos ? Have you the same behavior with oacapture ?

I don't know if it's possible, but are you tried on usb2 port ?

Good night

Don't know if it could be related but I notice that when I take a preview (using a DSLR with gphoto-ccd), the new status page continuously shows downloading image long after the image preview has completed downloading. It only stops after I take a sequence....
I would also suggest you enable debugging/logging and post the log file........

If you're talking about the "summary screen", this is still under development and doesn't affect the existing Ekos.

After re-installation I get the same result.
I don't understand because all looks fine in the txt file.

Maybe have a look here on how to get the debug log for your camera: Debug log instructions
Hope this helps.......

Here I am,

First of all I like the new appearance of the Ekos gui, great improvement. Just, pleaaase Jasem make the tab's icons smallers, my screen's resolution is so limited that sometimes I can't see the bottom of the tabs.
However congratulation for this work.

I have made some more tests with the ASI 178MM.

First: the indi_asi_ccd driver crash only when the camera is plugged on USB3 port. There is no report in the log file.
I
When it occurs there is nothing to do to get an image whatever the tab "exposure" is present in Ekos.

On USB2 connection to the camera works fine:

But sometimes, in that case, the shots in exposure are repeated twice. Not a rule, it varies randomly.

I have similar problems that the asi do not work after I run apt-get dist-upgrade sometime after June. Looks like the /usr/bin/indi_asi_ccd date sticks to May 27 while the other drivers seemed updating.. anyway this is my log:

But it is miraculous. All works fine. Need to know what apt-cache policy does.

It just prints out the package version... so it didn't do anything to solve your problem, maybe it solved itself!
