Hi,
as I already stated, the driver does not work for Automatic Dew. I have an UPBv2 running and it does not work actually. Other functions were OK.
As you are working on the driver anyhow, I would like to ask, if you could support a flag / property in the firmware portion to tell the client if a UPB v1 or a UPB v2 is running. This information is available in the driver, but is not passed to the client. THis would help a lot.

I think there is a bug in the driver. I though in an earlier version it worked, but I'm not quite sure.

Hi Scott,

we could share the experience with the equipment as I own a gm1000 MGPBox and running my setup with Indi (you also might use a INDIGO server) on a small computer on the rig. I used RPi3 and a finless mini PC.
The MGPBox should be attached directly to the mount and the mount reads the data directly. You only have to setup the mount to use it (Handbox or MW4 for doing that). You need in case of a firmware update a windows PC and connect MGPBox via USB (bis this so far was not needed). Please remind that only on source of refraction data should be used at the same time. So if you have MGPBox attache and enabled, please do not use any other software to update refraction data to the mount computer (MW4 does only allow one source and recognizes if a MGPBox is connected directly).

Same observation in my environment. Was not always the situation, changed somehow beginning this year.

Hi Doug,
a good idea, too. Ideally I would store all context information about and image in the image file and nowhere else, because this data is linked 1:1 togehter.

Han, Rob,

as I use the WCS Files from astrometry.net as well as from ASTAP: As far as I have seen: Han you are writing a text file with the entries, which are not readable from CITSIO and astrometry.net writes a FITS file with header entries only.

Jasem,
in profile editor I can't set QSI as filter. So there it's none. I sorted out the problem and removed the CCDSimulator as possible problem from the INDI server. So it should now be impossible to use it.

Hi,

with KStars 3.4.1 on MAC I recognized strange filter name entries in the FITS header. My setup show 'R', 'G', 'B', 'L' for example. in R is say 'Red ' in b it says 'Blue' but for example in L is says 'H alpha'. Do I have to set the names elsewhere ? The filter setting I get via INDI protocol show the right naming as they do in filter setting in EKOS. Interesting was that EKOS did automatically split the directories for Light in R, G, B, L (which are excactly the naming), and the string in the FITS file name was correct,



too, but the Header Entries were wrong:



Any Ideas ?
