Hello Paolo,

congratulations to your ASI2600, this a very good start in CMOS-imaging. I have got some experience with ASI cameras within the years, mostly good.
I got a gallery on my website with images sorted by camera: www.starhopper.eu
I got my ASI2600 some weeks ago and I used it in three whole nights from now.
What can I say?
The cooling is not as powerful as for the ASI1600 or ASI183. I operate these cameras at -20°C, this is fixed with the intend to reach this temperature around the year here in Germany. I decided to use -10°C for the ASI2600 because of the the same manner.
I also found that the temperature regulation oscillates within 0.8°C (peak-to-valley) around the setting temperature (no disturbing wind). I have not checked if this happens with the ASCOM driver too.
My second image I made was from a suburban site, but the object is always very low in the sky here. I used gain=100 and 4min subs.

I made two Masterbias and Masterdark (4min), one for gain=0 and one for gain=100. I will use gain=0 in the future for star clusters.

Hello Eric,
thanks for your reply. But for clarification, I am quite quite sure, that I have never night INDI builts on my laptop before.

Hello Wouter,
I cannot agree. I am very sure that I was on stable ppa. To troubleshoot I switched to nighty built and than back. Both sides produce the bug.

Yes, after this update it does not crash any more. What was the reason?

Hi Duncan,
was it a stellarmate update or an INDILib update?

Please roll_back the eqmod changes in the stable PPA,
so I can image tonigt. It is clear weather.

My crash happens on LinuxMint, my Astroberry is not affected because it receives not updates.
It is an INDILib issue, not an astroberry issue.

If there is no fast fix or solution, the only way for me is to go back with timeshift, to rescue the following clear night.

Thanks for your reply. The driver is crashing before a INDI Driver Tab opens, so I have no access to these buttons.
Can it be done without the GUI

Is there a chance to get an older driver that works

Hello,

I am ready for imaging , the night will be clear and dark, not often the case here, but I cannot do that
because my mount driver crashes immediately after start.
Reboots, reinstalls oder nighty does not help. Please fix that, it is urgent.
Search "crash" in my logfile.

Thomas

I try to survive tonight with my small astroberry server, here everthing works, because he receives no updates at the moment.

It simply debugs 70MByte per night at my laptop, just slowing INDIStarter, EQMODGUI and Skycharts a little bit and the response of commands.

Hallo HTH,
I am astonished. I will try it.

In my particular small setup (lab), I do not have a mount connected. I use "on camera" in PHD and a autoguiding cable to send autoguiding commands to the mount.
