Hi Ollie,
the driver is ready for testing with indi_microtouch_focus and is in the official repo. The sourcecode is under /libindi/drivers/focuser/microtouch.cpp. Any feedback is appreciated.
Thanks
Marco

I guess it depends on what version you are installing. Beta support is in the source version.

Sorry. I have no idea yet. Would it be possible to reproduce the error with debuglog turned on?

github.com/indilib/indi/pull/49 could be related to the problem. It was working fine on my arch dev computer, but crashed the driver on my RPi 3.

@ Robert: Good to hear that. Thank you. Have fun at the Star Party.

@Scott: Good, sounds like progress.

@Peter: Do you think this is related to the driver ?

Peter, I think I know whats going on. I had a signed/unsigned mismatch in the code before PR #48. Position is returned as an unsigned short int (16bits). If the focuser is sitting at a position higher than 32.767 the negative sign is returned and Ack() failes. This is corrected in PR #48. Sorry.

Scott, please try and move the unconnected focuser by hand to a position below 32767 and try to connect. Let me know if this works.

@Riprock99

Did Peters instructions solve your connection problems ?

Hi,

I took the Moonlite focuser driver as a template, and I did not change the disconnect function nor the destructor. Thanks for making the MacOS stuff clear, Peter.
I also added a ResetToPosition element where you can set the Focuser to a certain value, without moving it. I hope this solves your problem. I have to find out the Max value of the focuser, maybe we can set it to 200000 possible ticks.

Thanks for testing the driver and for your feedback. The Microtouch controller is not able to move to negative values, as far as I know. With the recent fix, motion for pos>9999 should be working. I am working on tempcomp and reseting to a custom value now. Is anyone using the learning/snapshot functions or are you setting it by coefficient ?

Marco Peters created a new topic ' QHY6 Guiding Issue' in the forum. 6 years ago

Hi,

is anyone using a QHY6 successfully for guiding using the ST4 port? I have a strange issue where sending guidecommands results in:
North - no movement at all
South - moving north
East - moving west
West - moving north

The indi commands seem to be OK. Could be a bug in the QHYSDK ?
I will try using a QHY5, that I have laying around...

Thank you for posting your log file. I found the bug and will provide a fix soon.

For now, you could try to see if the Focuser is working right in the 0-9999 range.

Hello,

I added some Debugging Code to the driver. Please post more information. I am not able to reproduce it here.
