I also think it would be a great addition. It would be interesting to play with a camera that has essentially the same sensor as the ASI 290MC, but for essentially half the price. I think It may not be hard to add support in the future, as the camera is already supported on linux by the AstroDMx software package.
@thx8411 That's great news! Looking forward to the driver! I actually added SVBONY alias for V42L. I think when you driver is ready, I'll rename them specifically for SV105 and SV205 so that it is not confused for your driver.
that's a very good new. I just received my sv305 and I had requested to SVBONY the lib and api for develop the indi driver.
The only problem for me is that the lib is for X86 achitecture and i drive my telescope from a raspberry. I hope that SVBONY will quickly provide a arm drivers.
I will do a quickly install your driver.
C8 lightbridge, Orion Atlas mount, EOS 1000D modified and ASI120MM for guiding.
At this time, I succeed in grabbing a color frame.
2 bugs to fix :
- Abort Exposure kills the driver at next frame exposure
- I get sometimes twice de same frame.
Is the TimeHit method threaded ? I suppose. So I have to protect resources by mutex ?
I also asked SVBony for the SDK and the USB EndPoints descriptions. I was ok for an NDA, but they just gave me the SDK.
The SDK (and probably the cameras) comes from "CK". Sadly, I don't think they will provide an arm version. The SDK is already 3 years old.
You could perhaps use something like an USB forwarder ?
I use a mini X86 box instead of a raspberry. It's more expensive, but more versatile, with a better power supply.
