Anyone using Altair cams on Raspberry Pi ?

Hi Chris,

I am by no means an expert but I can repeat what I've read on the forum:
* Problems persist with Altair cams and INDI.
* You have a better chance of getting a late model camera working.

My camera is GPCAM2 as seen here:
www.altairastro.com/GPCAM2-290M-Mono-Gui...stronomy-Camera.html

I tried searching for your camera at Altair's website. Apparently they don't sell it anymore. From the model number you gave it appears to be a first generation GPCAM1 model.

From what I've read your chances of getting your camera working with INDI is slim.
Sorry.

Chris,

You might want to read this:

especially the response by the Admin.

I don't know if it is possible but there might be a possibility of creating two Altair drivers, one that uses the newest SDK for late model cams and another that uses the older SDK for early model cams. Like I said I am not the expert.

Thanks for that. maybe there is some older code around that could work with older cameras. Must admit it doesn't feel like that old a camera. It works fine on Windows.

Does anyone have any idea about older code?

Or what alternative camera would people suggest? Something to do simple guiding and maybe planetary imaging without costing a lot. Must work with a Rasbpi based system.
