Looks good, you can remove the old lib as it's not used anymore.

The procedure is the same as building indi-asi as they are in the same git repository, just different directories. So create a new build directory, then run cmake pointing it to libasi instead of indi-asi directory and build normally. The rebulid indi-asi to use the new SDK. Sorry for brief instructions, I'm browsing on a phone currently :)

No, nightly builds are always built from git head so git is always more up to date by definition. ASI SDK recides in libasi directory in git and has to be installed first before indi-asi to use the current one. Git version itself has worked fine the whole time, it was just one packaging file I forgot to modify which caused wrong link in .deb files.

Yes, sorry, I had missed a change when I recently updated the ASI camera SDK version, should now be fixed in next nightly.

I just copied the files to new names, search & replaced the class name and added the new files to CMakelists.txt for build and drivers.xml for displaying in Ekos. The submit a pull request and profit :)

Jarno Paananen replied to the topic 'Wunderground API issue' in the forum. 3 weeks ago

When Wunderground announced shutting down their public API, I forked the driver to support OpenWeatherMap API and that is included in INDI too. Each service uses slightly different schema and attributes (for example codes for cloudy/rain/etc.) so some customization is required. But the basic functionality is usually quite similar and OpenWeatherMap API also sends the data as JSON so forking the driver for DarkSky API should be fairly straight forward. Or they could be merged to one driver, but occasionally keeping things separate is simpler and easier :)

Both are in use, earlier drivers used pthread directly, but for example ASI CCD driver has been updated to use std::thread and atomics etc. now.

Jarno Paananen replied to the topic 'ASI294 problem with INDI driver' in the forum. 1 month ago

Are you using the same offset value? I noticed that my ASI178MC has a dark current compensation "feature" that over compensates for dark current and the default offset value was too low and clips to black and was helped by raising offset. This seems common for Sony sensors (at least IMX178 and IMX183 seem to have it) so it might affect 294 as well. It's easy to notice if very short bias frames have higher mean ADU values than longer darks. I had discussion with ZWO about this at bbs.astronomy-imaging-camera.com/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=8426

Jarno Paananen replied to the topic 'Wish: Alignment - Slew to Target sync point cleanup.' in the forum. 1 month ago

For EQMod specifically setting Alignment Mode in Align tab of the driver to Nearest Point seems to help as it then only uses the closest point so the others don't interfere. I've used that mode for a few years first on HEQ5 and now EQ8 and haven't had issues with pointing accuracy.
