Thanks for your recommendation. I double-checked the configuration - and it turned out the bind command was missing! No idea how it happened, but at the end, easy to resolve.

btw : I do the binding upon start via modification of the bluetooth.service file

(I still follow the procedure once shared by "tseckler" for the shoestring bluetooth adapter.)

Hi Franck, hi Paul,

thanks for the updates - it is a while ago since I was using the driver / focuser. I have to admit that I got frustrated with the mechanical part of the focuses and removed all parts that I do not really need from the scope... one day I will give it another try! :-)

Best, Helge

Hi,

I am connecting to my eq5 (AZ-EQ5) mount via Shoestring Bluetooth Adapter (BT2EQ5) for two years, now I cannot get the mount connected:

EQMod Mount : "[ERROR] Failed to connect to port (/dev/rfcomm0). Error: Port failure Error: No such file or directory. Check if device is connected to this port.

Compared to last time when it was working, I was running the regular updates, including KStars / INDI drivers.

I have attached the log file.

Would be great if anyone has an idea how to resolve / get back on track!

Best, Helge

Hi Kes74,

To my knowledge, there is no guide - but in case it is useful, this is, what I have been putting down some time ago. I could not find the electronic version, just a sheet of paper...sorry, it does not look very nice.

Hi Ron,

with the not-pro version I also had the mentioned amp-glow problem on the Pi with USB 2.0, that was "fixed" with the buffer introduced with the "pro" version.

Hi Ron, hi Ezwheel,

I actually gave in with the ZWO ASI071 pro, as with two cameras I encountered ice on the sensor at -10 degree Celsius. It strikes me reading that both of you have experienced this issue.

Helge replied to the topic 'New INDI Atik driver - Feedback requested' in the forum. 8 months ago

Hi kamisan,

I just had a look on the astroberry side, concerning upgrade via standard procedure you would be fine ( github.com/rkaczorek/astroberry-server ).

In my case, there was a conflict between new Atik driver and some outdated general libraries, which was solved with the upgrade.

Hi Kamisan,

In my case - and I am sure you have done already - I got it sorted by running sudo apt-get upgrade
