Dear All,

I was trying to install my pi3 box for astro with a 5D3 prior to switch to an old 20D due to some issues on the 5D3 (other topic open on gphoto2 GIT), anyway :

On the indi control panel now connecting the 20D, i don't see the option to write the file on the camera RAM or SD card (which is a CF btw), neither i see the option to keep the picture on the camera or to automatically delete it. (as i don't have big CF card i can use on that camera, i will be limited if i need to stop from time to time the sequence to delete manually the file on the camera)

Is there a limitation on the 20D to not be able to write only in RAM and transfer it to the pi3 ? or any other reason ?

Here attached is the log/debug of the kstars files as well as the indi_ccd driver one

Thank you very much for your help !!

'capturetarget' widget is not defined by libgphoto2 for this camera. You can ask in libgphoto2 Github page.

Now if you capture, it saves to SD camera and it remains there after you get in INDI?

Ok, I separated SD card property from 'capturetarget', please test in INDI Nightly PPA.

Thanks Jasem !!

Yes it stays in the camera mem card after indi gets it.
I will ask in parallel if there's a reason for the widget "capture target"

let's try the latest build, thanks !

Hello,
I did add the nightly repository of indi.
i did an apt-get update
then i checked indiserver version (still 1.7.2)

started kstars etc.. once connected to the camera, there were no change on the indi control panel of the 20D.
i tried to shoot, still photo on the CF mem card ...
(maybe i did a mistake ?)
