I had a similar issue with taking flats in indilib.org/forum/ekos/2219-items-from-l...s-session/20065.html
For me it was somehow stuck on taking flats.

Maybe try again with logging enabled. What does the indi driver control panel list as currently selected frame type? Does it work after switching to a different frame type like Bias?

Hi,

I just uploaded my motor focuser to thingiverse. www.thingiverse.com/thing:2617278

The images on the github page show a Arduino nano and the stepper motor driver board soldered together for the data pins. I used jumper cables for all connections.
The Arduino Nano is just a smaller board compared to the bigger brothers.

I had some issues with my mount and an Arduino myself. The EQ Mount and the Focuser try to connect via /dev/ttyUSB* and employ some auto probing if that fails.
I don't know if that collides somehow.

I changed the Indi devices to not auto connect at startup. I also disabled the serial probing. (restarted Indi to make sure everything was idle)
After that I could connect the devices one by one. (I checked to get the device names/numbers correct)

A better way would be to make and use stable device entries with udev. hintshop.ludvig.co.nz/show/persistent-names-usb-serial-devices/

Maybe we should encode them as a video stream.. something like libtheora (.ogv) and then send that blob over to KStars. Let me see if this sorts of thing is possible or worth it.


a full frame with 16bit is 32MB on the ASI1600MM-C
a good HDD is able to get about 30MB/s via USB on the RPI 3

so getting more than 1 fps from camera to Indi seems unlikely

My Setup is a RPI3 with StellarmateOS.

ASI1600MM-C + ASI Filter Wheel, ASI-120MC (via the ASI1600MM-C usb hub)
Ekos/Indi running locally
VNC Desktop over 2.4GHz Wifi

I wonder if usbip.sourceforge.net/ could be of any use for you?

Probaly needs a bit of network knowledge and a VPN connection like www.zerotier.com/

just did an other testing round

this time the live preview worked
the live preview after binning a single frame caused an other crash

Hi,

just tried to live stream to my rpi with the ASI1600MM-C.

In the first tries I ended up with the player window staying black and reporting about 1.1 fps.

After switching to binning 4, doing a preview, then trying to stream the driver even crashed.

I used github.com/fehlfarbe/arduino-motorfocus with an Arduino Nano 5v clone from Amazon ( Link ). It emulates a MoonLite focuser via USB and can run even without RPI.

Karsten replied to the topic 'ASI-EFW not saving the Filter labels' in the forum. 5 years ago

Saving and loading the config for the ASI-EFW works fine for me. (7x36mm)

In you log I can not see that a config load is triggered.
Can you try to load the config via INDI Control Panel? ASI-EFW -> Options -> Configuration -> Load
Can you check what the setting in Kstars is? Settings -> Konfigure KStars -> Ekos -> General -> Configuartion -> Load Device Configuration - "On Connection"

works again :)

Thanks
