Patrick created a new topic ' Fress install on Dell D430 & Nikon D5300 that doesn't connect' in the forum. 1 month ago

Hello everybody,
I just installed Kstars-bleeding and indi on a Dell D430 under ubuntu mate 18.04LTS bionic.
The dslr appears in lsusb but doesn't want to connect under Ekos and there is no error message appearing in the log window of Ekos.
I checked to launch the indiserver by hand and get the following result which I interpret as a good start but connection still fail.
Have you any advice that can help me to fix this problem ?

Patrick created a new topic ' astrometry on an image without connecting a setup' in the forum. 2 months ago

I would like to be able to do an astrometry on an existing image without having to connect a camera. The goal is to identify the objects (stars, clusters and so on) presents on the image to be able to do a search on the atlas and do a better frame around the object to capture.
This would be very useful, for example, to frame more easily a nebula for which we don't have name using the stars around that are named.
Astrometry may brings up more "textual" and usefull information.
Maybe it is yet possible but didn't found anything about it.

Patrick created a new topic ' Some pics obtained with Kstars/Ekos/INDIN and a light setup' in the forum. 4 months ago

Hello all,
This is a modest result obtained using a 300mm F/D 4 ED Nikon lens and a Nikon D5300 . The camera was in piggy back on a 80/480 ED AT refractor with ASI120MMS.
I tried to do polar alignment with the Nikon but the camera hangs up after the first or second capture. According Jasem, and to my understanding, this is a known problem that can't be easily reproduced and don't have solution today.
So I made the polar alignment using the 120MM which gives a field very close to the 30' required. I had to do it twice because the target was out of field and hopefully I succeeded because my manual polar alignment was precise enough.

Well found the problem. the installation of the asi library is the problem as it conflicts with the one installed by oacapture. Unfortunately I had to uninstall oacapture to make it works. This is a new problem that doesn't exists previously.

Patrick created a new topic ' A cooling and warming curve for cameras' in the forum. 10 months ago

To avoid the problems of freezing on the sensor surface or the sensor cell window while cooling it or warming it that would be nice to define a step by step cooling curve in Ekos options of the camera.

Is there still issues with the QHY drivers for this caméra on X86 and ARM platforms ?

If this driver cover all available functions of the CEM60 that is a good news.

@Derpi
I have exactly the same issue with my CEM60. Looks like the choice of the current position as parking position is not registered on the mount.
