I only have two QHY cameras and the one Canon.Right now am trying to source another Canon camera (different model) and hopefully another guider.
It will take me a couple of days to acquire.

I tried testing with equipment/systems that I used. None of the combinations worked together for taking lights and guiding.
qhy5_canon_ubuntu - created an error on the Canon 60D
qhy5_canon_mac - the Indi server crashed and restarted
qh5_canon_rp3_mac - QHY5L-ll captures images, but Canon 60D posts 'cannot wait for events' in the logs
qhy5m_qhy5l_mac - caused one panic on desktop, upon retry gave me this log

I even tried using the ssag (QHY5M) through RP3 to two different OSs, but it error'd out

The RP3+ is Ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS -updated
The Mac version of Kstars is 3.3.6

Let me know if I can provide additional information or testing

Hello again,

I normally run everything through the RP3+. Tried many different things now; still causes the same strange error when guiding is enabled with gphoto collection shots.

However when the QHY5l-II is connected directly to my computer's USB port., the driver panics and from the log it shows @path/libghyccd.5.dylib has not been loaded.

What is strange, is the RP3+ can capture and process images. Fails when gphoto collects photos.

My Macs, RP3+ are at current versions.

For information: I have tested this QHY5 camera on another platform and it functions. (not a bad camera, cable or firmware)

I would like to add some more data to this thread. I have been experiencing nearly the same behaviour.

Running current version on two RP3+ and MacOs.

See log-rp3. Kstars was run solely on this RP3+ as a test. Canon can take and file pictures. When I select guide/capture/loop from guiding tab the Canon (photo) repeats " [Warning] could not wait for event". Power need to be recycled on Canon and all drivers halted and restarted.
From the Mac desktop with remote configuration to RP3+ (running drivers) the Canon is able to take and save photos. However, if I trigger 'capture' in guiding it get the" [Warning] could not wait for event" message under the Canon driver tab. Power need to be recycled on Canon and all drivers halted and restarted.

Otherwise, last night I used a similar setup with my Star Adventurer, Canon 60D, QHY5L mini guider, sim=telescope and phd2 running on another RP3+. This did work well for me. Mind you I started phd2 after all other drivers were running.

I will keep trying iterations with the desktop system to bracket the problem.

regards

Hello, I assume from your post that all devices are directly connected to your computer.
I run Mac and Linux systems, but Kstars/EKOS seem to be consistent with menus. Do you have a listing under 'tools' then 'devices'?
If you can find 'devices', it can be used to connect to the cameras. This server log will give you a listing of errors if it fails to connect. Make sure your camera has not been automounted by another program. The Orion guide scope is supported natively under windows using their drivers and should work. Try working on one device at a time without anything else connected. FYI when you start EKOS, look at the 'Logs' tab. Enable what is applicable and post the results with the log. There is a link somewhere on this site on how to enable logs, worth watching.

Hello there,
Try this, after you download the package, open it and move to it Application or some other folder, right click open. This will allow the package to extract and you will be given a choice to OPEN or CANCEL. This bypasses opening security preference pane. High Sierra uses SIP.
