I can now use Raspbian buster with AstroPi3 script in my pi3B and Pi4B without issue.

Thanks.

Thanks. Already done that long time ago and it works fine for guiding on my Rpi3B.

Many people have issues with that camera, there is a firmware upgrade for it, but not sure how easy it is to do... :)


Hi,

can show me the link or steps how to do that firmware upgrade? I do not want to waste money to invest another guide cam since my 120MC still works very well on guiding. I am now a planetary guy!

Manage to connect to all my equipment but sadly my ASI120MC cannot capture anything from RPI4. I already tried both USB3.0 and 2.0. The same thing happens.

No problem at all on my Rpi3B.

Any ideas guys?

Thank you.

Me too...wxformbuilder is hard to get past for my level. At least i tried. But failed. :( Please add phdlogviewer into all scripts.

Although I ended up just re-running the script, it seems inefficient for rebuilding only KStars. Good news is it resolved the crashing.


That’s good news. Note that rerunning the script actually isn’t that inefficient because it doesn’t do most of the things again once they are already done, it just checks and prints a message saying it’s done already.

I do plan to take the rebuild code out of the main script and put it in a separate subscript so it can be run separately if you want to rebuild the Astro software again. It will still be run by the main script but there would be the option to just run that.

If you want to see the steps just look in the script. I have loads of documentation explaining it.


First time running the script was time-consuming. But after that, it is fast for rebuilding after git pull.

I got some of it corrected in the INDI repo now, but I have to do a complete rebuild make some changes so that it can build from scratch to see if it is fixed.


Thanks for the advice. I think til now IMHO Raspian buster still very stable in rpi4. This morning i saw a major buster kernel and firmware including ffmpeg update. Looks like RPI foundation really doing something behind the scene now. Good for us.
