Yes, it has been merged so if you compile from git, you can use it. Jasem preferred single method instead of two so there is now just setPollingPeriodRange(min, max);

Just tested and it does work, set the range for my ScopeDome driver to 1000-3000ms and it showed up correctly. The device doesn't like too long intervals as it has a watchdog mechanism that resets the serial connection if there hasn't been traffic for a while.

Normally I agree, though in this case the risk is very low as the code doesn't get called unless the device actually opts in to use it and it's literally three trivial lines of code to set new minimum and maximum values over the defaults. I would have tested it in my own drivers but had other things to do during the weekend so I thought it would be better to get it out early for others to use. As for device specific hacks I much prefer the base classes to be flexible enough not to need to be worked around as that just leads to code rot and incoherent user experience, especially if the fix is trivial like this one.

It has now been merged to master, hopefully it works as I didn't actually test it :)

Jarno Paananen replied to the topic 'Can't connect NEQ6 Pro via ST4 cable' in the forum. 4 weeks ago

ST4 cable is only capable of sending guide pulses from camera to mount, it's not used for controlling the mount in any other way so you can't connect the mount driver with it. To control the mount from Ekos you need either serial cable from computer to hand controller or preferably EQDir cable directly to mount. For purely guiding, the same setup in PHD2 works, just don't add mount driver at all, use via camera guiding and control the mount with hand controller.

I made a pull request to add these methods as github.com/indilib/indi/pull/1013 and hopefully Jasem has time to review them at some point.

Ah, it would then be useful to add something setMinimumPollingPeriod() and perhaps setMaximumPollingPeriod() to DefaultDevice that would set the range for that control, currently the limits are somewhat generous (10-600000ms) and most serial devices wouldn't like 10ms either.

In focuser case the addPollPeriodControl() seems to be called by the base Focuser::initProperties() call, you can set the driver specific default polling rate to 1000ms with setDefaultPollingPeriod(1000); and it's also saved with options so I don't see the need to take away the control in case someone wants to use it, to make the period longer for example.

I have the ZWO probe and temperature is read, though a bit noisy and I'm not sure how accurate, the value seems to jump around quite a bit so it's not very useful unfortunately.

My HEQ5 had random serial disconnection issues due to loose power connector. I added a separate lockable power connector in parallel and didn't have any issues after that. So that's one thing to look at that the power connector is secure.

Oh, sure it would be nice to be able to do just one dither per round, but this is the best I've managed to get reliably working with the current implementation.

Jarno Paananen replied to the topic 'Dither counter wrong when having several short sequences' in the forum. 1 month ago

Ekos doesn't do dither when changing filter so I guess it doesn't count those transitions aren't counted towards the dither count either. I have dithering set to every frame and if I do one frame each LRGB, it never dithers, would be nice if it dithered once when going back to first filter, but that would require some special case handling. For this reason I use two frames each which works and dithers every second frame. This way I have fully dithered subs per filter, but minimize unnecessary dithers. Looping can be easily done with running the sequence via scheduler.
