Those are very good mounts. My current mount is a Losmandy G11 with Gemini 1 Level IV. It is now a little dated, but is a great performer. It works great on INDI when it is set up correctly.

I do believe this discussion thread is now not about the original topic at all, but is now about several different topics at the same time.

Yes PHD2 needs the indi driver. I am running indi on the RPi in the observatory and Kstars and PHD2 on my desktop.

Here is how I configure PHD2 on a raspberry Pi to not need an INDI driver for a ZWO camera (so that it doesn't have to send guide images over the network), to use the ZWO ST4 guiding cable to send the guide commands, but to still benefit from pointing information from INDI.

Oh i just reread DerPit's question. My suggestion is what he said he already did. Sorry about that. So yes, I dont know if there is a better way

PHD2 does not need an INDI driver for a camera that it has native support for. On Linux, support for ZWO is built in to PHD2. If you are using PHD2, you dont need the guide camera to be connected to Ekos. In fact, directly connecting PHD2 to the ZWO and then not including it in the profile in Ekos will cause an increase in performance, assuming that you are running PHD2 on a raspberry pi. The reason is because then it doesnt need to send the image over the network to your client computer it just sends it right to PHD2.
This is the way i run my imaging setup.

Now as to DerPit's question about having 2 zwo cameras. . . I am not sure. I will have to think about that one. Can you try just not including the guider in the profile, and when it shows up, just not connecting to it?

Oh you are using phd2? Why do you have your guider in the profile then? If you are running phd2 on a raspberry pi, then you can directly connect it to the camera. No need for INDI or to have the Guide camera in the ekos profile.

In the guide module I believe you can select your guide camera as qhy and disable the receipt of guide frames from that camera

I'm pretty sure my ZWO has always given me at least 8 bit data. This is odd.

Hi Paul,

I know how you feel, I've had my own share of Github confusions. But typically that commit message that you mention has not been a problem for me. It seems to happen often when you do a "git pull" after you have already made a pull request. I don't think it causes any problems, it just gets in the way.

I would be more concerned about it not passing all the checks like here:

travis-ci.org/indilib/indi/builds/452469..._medium=notification

But it looks like you fixed the error in the next commit.

It does currently say there is an error, but if you look at the cause, it is an issue with free type not downloading properly which has nothing to do with your code I expect.

Thanks,

Rob
