I had posted this in the general thread but I think it's more of a feature request and hence posting here.
Can anyone make any suggestions on how the control of more than two imaging cameras can be implemented in KStars?
I've been using two instances of Kstars and being limited to DSLR cameras only
I have a dual-telescope setup which I used in the past with Windows APT software (which allows dithering of two cameras by having two instances working together in a Client/Server configuration) but have started migrating to linux as I hope to have a fully automated system in future.
Yea they are not in sync.
I played around with a spreadsheet and basic formulas to see what would happen over a number of subs to see how a small delay due to dithering/settling might cascade over 10 subs.
I tried a field-test and I got confirmation of the stars streaking in one of the instances that's out of sync.
Do you have any suggestions as to how I can get myself into coding to contribute?
I'm very tenacious, it might cause more grey hairs and early baldness but Ekos has allowed my astrophotography to be more productive.
Basically, get QtCreator, clone the KStars repo, and build. It takes a bit to get started, but once you're rolling, it's pretty straight forward. You can join KStars chat at riot as well:
Would an answer be perhaps to have two Stellarmate’s (raspberry pi’s), one for each scope doing camera and focuser control, but one also has an addition being the guide camera attached. Reason is that I thought I read somewhere where you could chain instances of INDI together, that was controlled by the same client. Is this correct though folks?
