Great job!

Optimized images to analyze when embedding in Ekos (pixel size, file size for quick analysis, etc.)

Please consider it as well.

When solving with Ekos, I am currently setting Jpeg / downsample on the DSLR and binning / downsample on the astronomical camera to increase the image transfer rate. If you have a frame from live view and you have an astronomical camera, shooting in stream mode will be even faster. (I think ASIAirPRO improves processing in this style.)

I think adding this function is an operational problem.

In many other applications, you can adjust gain, offset, color balance, focus, mount position, and more while viewing the live view.

It would be very convenient if you could make all adjustments before shooting.

(I think you can refer to the ASI AirPro interface, SBC, etc. that operate with the same driver.

ASI AirPro can also add live stacking. )

I think Ekos is a great integrated environment like no other, but it doesn't have the ability to interact and adjust with Live View.

It is convenient to be able to adjust the focus, gain, and color while watching the live view.
(It would be even better if you could do live stacking)

I think it's a great idea.

In the case of another window, I think that it is difficult to operate depending on the function, so make it easier to access with tabs etc. in the module,
It would be nice to add a configuration module that can perform the required operations suggested earlier.

I understood the cause.

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mutlaqja/ppa

When re-registering the repository with this command, the repository for the OS of a different version will be registered.

I'm using bionic, I've tried it several times and the groovy repository is registered.

I checked, but the dependency does not correspond to the system version.

And it seems that the dependencies cannot be installed.

kstars-bleeding→The dependencies cannot be installed, the required version is too new to get in the repository, and the dependencies cannot be installed.

Dependencies that cannot be installed
libcfitsio8
libqt5gui5-gles
libwcs7

What you can't install
libindi1
The indi-bin

A dependency is required for a newer version of the repository and cannot be installed.

libc6
libgsl23
libqt5core5a
libqt5gui5
libqt5widgets5


Please include the following dependencies in the repository.

There have been many problems for a long time, but this version can not be updated at all.

There are the following problems.

・ Indi-full → Installation is not possible because there are no installation candidates.

・ Indi-bin → I cannot install due to lack of dependencies.


-Kstars-bleeding → I cannot install due to lack of dependencies.

● Missing due to dependencies
libindi1
libgcc-s1
libcfitsio 8
libgcc-s1

It cannot be installed because the package cannot be found.

sudo apt-get -o Dpkg :: Options :: = "-force-overwrite" -f install

I tried to install it, but it cannot be installed due to lack of the above dependencies.

When installing with SSH, the previous version was put on hold, and when I followed the instructions of autoremove, KStars, indi-full, etc. were deleted, so I could not install
Currently it is completely unusable. .. ..

If you know how to avoid it, please let me know.

I have created a distribution with many functions such as time acquisition from web browser, latitude and longitude acquisition, VPN server function, SkyFi function.

How to use is summarized on this page. (Please check with the translation engine.)

The distribution is localized in Japanese, but people in other countries can use it by switching the language environment.

This is in addition to INDI Web Manager.

tstudioastronomy.blog.fc2.com/blog-entry-248.html

Please check with automatic translation.

There is no need to connect an RTC.

The specifications of the mount driver refer to the system clock if the time is not obtained by GPS. .

If this function is added to INDI Web Manager, you can get the system time without DIY.

Thank you for your always wonderful work.

Since SBC does not have RTC, it seems that those who build the environment with distributions such as StellarMateOS and Astroberry have troubles because the system time, GPS time, driver time etc are not aligned.
(Confirmed in my blog.)

I feel that if this function is added to INDI Web Manager to get the browser time and set the SBC system clock, this problem can be avoided.

Please consider it as a useful feature for many SBC users.

(I thought that if you could run a script that can set the system time from the browser provided by Max on TinyAstro before, it could be avoided, but unfortunately it did not work.
I myself wrote a script with PHP etc., but unfortunately it does not work. )

If the system clock is too bad, information will not be transmitted from GPS to NTP.

If the system clock can be set in advance with the above functions, GPS and NTP will also work properly.
