Hi Thx8411,

This is my dump file. Hope it helps.

No stopping frames or lost connection during test.

Weird.....Mine works well with RPI4 4GB and 8GB board. No more frames stopping. Good luck.

Hi Pep,

Basically, that's it. Unless you wish to do something more tricky than I do which is I've downgraded my VL805 EEPROM firmware for rpi4 4GB board to 0137ab. This downgrade process is for my ASI120MC which is USB2.0 to run. I assume you are still running 0138a1 EEPROM firmware which I will avoid.

If you wish to check which version of eeprom firmware you are having, issue this command " sudo rpi-eeprom-update " in terminal.

For planetary and moon imaging, I will recommend you use AstroDMx.

Cheers,
Tom

Hi Pep,

What do you mean by tracking in EKOS? Your mount not connected? You are now using PHD2 in EKOS, not internal guider right?

Oysters, sorry ...:oops:

I should jumped on the post where you explained it. :oops: Well that's how I'll try it. In fact today there is a favorable weather forecast and I will be able to tell you, what happened as soon as possible.

I insist, sorry for my insistence to try to give you datas for to resolve the problem. If I would have read it before, for sure it would have worked before. ;)

Thank you for this huge job you have done.:cheer:

Pep


No problem here. Just let us know the test result. :)

Clear skies!

Cirera wrote: Dear Knro and Thx8411,

During this time I tried to track via <em>PHD2</em>, but it continues to give the same problem of the INDI-Driver <em>(it also uses the same)</em>: that is, it makes 1 or maximum 2 images and that's it: it no longer responds.

In another forum I read that the <em>AstroDMX-Capture</em> works very well with the SV305 <em>(the pro says nothing)</em>. I have also tried it and yes, the camera never fails and has many control options of it, but of course this program only takes pictures and does not track.
Seeing that it worked I stopped the <em>astroDMx-capture</em> and turned on the <em>ekos</em> to try to take pictures or track ... and nothing worked anymore. Also, once the <em>ekos</em> no longer detected it, I tried to start the <em>astroDMx-Capture</em> again to see if it responded, and no longer responded.
Then, I had to disconnect/connect the camera and reset the RasPi so that some of the programs would detect it again. And worked, of course.

I hope it becomes clear what tests I have done, if you need any feedback or do any tests feel free to tell me and I'll do it.

Thank you and I look forward to your news,

Best,

Pep


Hi Cirera,

I assume you are talking about raspberry pi 4. I got everything working a few weeks ago after many trial and error.

There are 2 things that u need to do just to make it work.

1. in INDI control panel, change the setting from RAW16 to RAW8. Then try to do a capture looping in the GUIDE or FOCUS tab.

2. In PHD2 under INDI camera selection, choose MAIN for Dual CCD and check the Camera does not support the exposure time option. When you do looping in PHD2, a preview will show up, and just minimize it. That's all.

Then you are good to go.

Good luck.

Tom

Please view the video www.dropbox.com/s/ijmsqx6zm2wy4we/Capture%2002.wmv?dl=0
Any solutions or ideas?


Hi,

Read this post if you are using Raspberry pi 4 4GB board. indilib.org/forum/astroberry/8535-astrob....html?start=12#65530

If you are using RPI4 8GB board, try to downgrade the VL805 eeprom to 000137ad.

Tom

And do you want me to cook something for you aswell ?
Concerning the slow progress, I have a full time job, 2 children and a wife, with health issues...
Your logs doesn't help anyway.


Sorry to hear about your health issues. The log actually is generated from Ekos Debugger. Maybe I tested it in wrong ways.

The easiest and direct ways is set a time for teamviewer session to tackle the issue. :)

I downloaded the file again and .... the content is now changed (from few days ago) and I can see the ASI120MM-compatible.iic is there now
Interesting they did not change the zip file name

Anyway, I now flashed the firmware and I can now confirm that my 120MM now works and acquires images correctly!!!! :-)
Looking toward good weather now.

Thanks all for your support

Best regards
Mirko

Sorry, my fault. French habit "Message Privé" = "Private Message".
Or just attach your log file to your post in the topic.

Hi Thx8411,

since you already receive the sample SV305 PRO, do you mind to get a Raspberry Pi 4 to further debug the issue as well? This thread seems very slow in progress. :(

Best regards,
Tom

I just pushed the Mac OS 64 libraries in my repo (github.com/thx8411/indi-3rdparty).
But I'm Apple agnostic. I don't have any device to test it.

Raspberry/SV305 Pro issues : could you please enable the debug log level and send me your logs by MP ?

Thanks and best regards,

Hi,

This is the debug log when I use kstars guide and start looping with 1sec exposure.

As you can see the exposure will exit and kstars will try to restart the exposure but failed.

Hope this help.
