Thomas created a new topic ' eq6 MCU-Upgrade. Problems with indi_lx200basic driver ...' in the forum. 2 years ago

hi Guys

I bought an EQ6 about 15 years ago and upgraded with Rajiva's MCU-Upgrade Kit.
If I run the EQ6 with Skychart the internal driver and the control of the mount works without problems.
If I use the Indiserver indi_lx200basic with Kstars then i've got the connection to the driver but more does not happen.

I can still remember a libindi version that worked. But that has been many years ago.
I have run on the server the latest PPA from Jasem and connect with Kstars from the client.

In the "sync" of an object, I see the cross for a second, but immediately disappears. If I want to "slew" on a object, nothing happens.

This is the Kstars Indi-Control output

2017-06-09T08:42:21: Object below the minimum elevation limit.
2017-06-09T08:42:21: Error Slewing to JNow RA 2:44:12 - DEC 3:18:21
2017-06-09T08:42:12: Synchronization successful.
2017-06-09T08:41:56: LX200 Basic is online.


What should I do to run the EQ6 with the Indi_lx200basic driver?
I would like to use ekos, but as long as the assembly does not work it is useless.

I have already read that many EQ6 users with MCU upgrade, have problems with this driver.

Is there a solution for this problem?
If there no driver specifically for the eq6 with mcu-upgrade kit?

If I can help to solve the problem, so let me know how i can help.

Sorry for my bad english but google ist my friend ;)

Best regards
Thomas

If I run the EQ6 with Skychart and the internal driver, then the control of the mount works without problems.
If I use the Indiserver indi_lx200basic with Kstars then he set the connection to the driver but more does not happen.

This is the Log from Indi-Kontroll in Kstars.

Good Morning,

Please apologize if I can not always answer the same. I have family.

@KNRO
I have made 2 log files.
Indiserver -vv -l / home / thomas / indi_log indi_lx200basic
Indiserver -vvv -l / home / thomas / indi_log indi_lx200basic

"Sync" on Venus at "Slew" on Uranus. 2 times each.
I hope you can do something with it.
If you need other logs please tell it.

@NMAC
I have read your topic. I did not know you were still there. Is already a while ago
I would be glad if someone manages to get the thing to run.

I had already played with Kstars and Indi 15 years ago and it worked with this mount. Then there was a change in the libindi.
After that, nothing happened and I had to go to Skychart.

Somehow I had then Kontact to jasem and he has viewed with SSH the source from libindi. After that, it worked a while. At least until the first update but is certainly 6 years ago.

greeting
Thomas
