Hello everyone, If I've read the thread correctly, this driver is for the SV305, I own an SV105 that I would like to try as a guide camera for my widefield astrophoto setup, and was wondering if this driver could also work for me. I've tried using both the INDI webcam and V4L2 drivers via ekos in kstars, but none work, as the camera is only able to take a single exposure before not responding again. I figured this thread is the right place to ask, so if anyone has any experience with this little cam I'd be helpful for any tips !!.
I'm working on it. Not a big deal, in facts, the actual driver should work, except that the bayer matrix reported in the FITS fields should be wrong.
I'm waiting for informations from SVBony to properly identify the camera and set the good color/mono pattern.
Do you allready own a SV305M Pro ? In this case, you can allready give a try to the actual driver, and report me the results.
It would help me a lot.
If it doesn't work, you may try with the "work in progress" driver in my repo :
Hi Collin, thank you for reply. I don't own this camera yet, but I would like to buy one and INDI support is critical for me. So if you think that it will work, I can order the camera and try your driver.
I just pushed a new commit to my repo, disabling the HAS_BAYER capability for the SV305M Pro.
It deserves some cleaning (bayer matrix offsets and white balance/saturation settings are a non sens and should by removed), but I hope it could work "as is".
In december 2020, SVBony sent me a MacOS version of the SDK :
<< This is the first version SDK for Mac OS. I know it not that perfect. >>
I haven't received any update since.
I haven't developed on MacOs for 15 years, and I don't own an Apple device.
I don't know how to handle the platform detection, the packaging, etc.
If an INDI/MacOS experienced developer could help me, it would be great.
I'm trying to use the SVBONY 305 pro camera for guiding i Kstars, using the stellarmate on a raspberry pi. Not having great succes. There is a lot of "noise" in the picture compared to pictures taken with the same camera in a different program, eg. SharpCap. When I check the list with supported cameras in ekos, sv305 camera is listed but not the sv305 pro version. I think it could be a problem with the driver. Does anyone know if there is an updated driver or there might be one on the way. I have taken 5 darks with an exposure time between 1 and 5 seconds, gain 200 and bin 1x1. If anyone can use the pictures for something, they are attached as zip file. The attached image is preview of one dark frame in kstars.
