Wolfgang,

Yes, I think the relationship between the Observatory and rolloff is working.

The mount did not park at the end because of:
2019-08-08T09:54:46 Telescope altitude is below minimum altitude limit of 0. Aborting motion...
Even though the rolloff simulator had the "Ignore Telescope" set it then failed to park.

Running the scheduler again with the telescope's altitude limits checkbox unchecked allowed it to park at the end, and then the roof would also park.

Perhaps the scheduler might have eventually stopped looping on the mount unparked message if a rain simulator was running?
Regards
Tom

Wolfgang,

That helped, I did a local build and tested it with all simulators including the rolloff-roof, If the simulator roof works then my variation will be okay, or I can make it so.

Your change fixed the relationship between the Observatory and rolloff-roof states. It work ed to park and unpark the roof just fine and kept them in sync.

I tested with a simple scheduler definition and there might still be an issue there. For me it opened the roof and went through the imaging steps. But when it came to closing the roof it did not and just kept repeating "Mount unparked." messages that I did not see the end of and just stopped the scheduler. This might be a problem local to my install due to mixing package manager daily updates with doing the local clone/build on the same machine. I need to sort out a better approach for doing the builds.

Wolfgang,

I have not progressed to the point of checking out code.
Tried a git clone github.com/indilib/indi.git but did not see any changes to roll_off.cpp if that is what I need.
Can you give me a pointer on locating the stream/release where the changed file(s) are?

Thanks

Wolfgang,

Be glad to. I can't do it directly because my implementation is so different. But I'll do a diff between the previous rolloff files and your updated ones. Depending on what is there I might be able to change my version to incorporate those differences for testing.

In my case it is just a dyi home build, got general ideas from cloudynights observatory forum. Do not have plans but built it like a small shed 6'x8' with lumber from the local store. The motor and inverted V track is intended for a sliding gate opener, Aleko 1450. The motor comes with a remote control and has wired connection points for a open/close push button. It relies on magnetic switches positioned at either end of the run to turn off the motor.

When I was looking for a kick starter I saw there was the rolloff roof simulator code as an example and took that as a framework. If using a Raspberry Pi in the observatory there is a WiringPi interface that could be used directly. I am not using a pi and chose to interface via a Arduino controller. A simple text based protocol was used between the INDI driver code and the Arduino using the Arduino's default USB connection.

The question you asked about connections, The Arduino uses a relay to control the Aleko's push button on/off connection. There is a mechanical switch at both the opened and closed positions of the roof that the Arduino can pickup along with a switch that gets closed when the roof's tie downs are closed to stop me from forgetting. How to force a close, you would just use the normal Ekos interfaces, using the Observatory panel or the INDI properties interface, the Weather monitoring drivers will also work as for other Dome rolloff drivers. For the Aleko motor the remote also still works.

I have only a few images of the build if interested and of course you are welcome to the software if you can use it to get going. For Ekos software I think there are various approaches including script control examples. You might get more visibility starting a new thread requesting examples of what people have done.

Before making any changes other than logging.
After the rolloff calls Dome::InitPark: examined the Dome's parked status and the Dome's state.
From the rolloff's indi window (reversed)
019-07-29T21:20:21: [INFO] Dome indicates it is parked
2019-07-29T21:20:21: [INFO] Dome state: DOME_IDLE
2019-07-29T21:20:21: [INFO] Dome parking data obtained
2019-07-29T21:20:21: [INFO] RollOff ino is online.

Observatory indicates Dome is unparked and can not be used to park the roof.

Made a change to my rolloff
In the rolloff's equivalent to SetupParms after the call to Dome:InitPark.
Get the Dome state and Dome park status. If isParked returns true and that agrees with the roof switches
but the Dome state is not a matching DOME_PARKED, change the Dome state to DOME_PARKED.

Observatory now indicates the Dome is parked and can be used to open the roof.

Wolfgang,

The rolloff is at present passive with the Dome park status, it seems that it needs to intervene. I think for my purpose after initialization I will check the Dome status and get it to sync up with the roof switches. Prior to the Observatory I had just been using the open/close buttons to control the roof.

It appears the error is with the rolloff as can be seen in the inconsistency with the park buttons in the screenshot.

I don't seem to see the indi state externally and would need to setup for debug to look at it.
tg@chai ~]$ indi_getprop|sort|grep -i ino.dome

Tom Gibson created a new topic ' Using the Observatory panel with a rolloff roof' in the forum. 3 weeks ago

Last night when trying the scheduler for the first time the roof failed to open. I'm using a modification of the rolloff roof simulator. So before attempting to debug I tried the simulators to get a baseline. There appears to be an issue between the Park status of the Observatory and Rolloff using the simulator (and my copy of it).

The first screen shot is at initial Ekos startup and the state of the roof is unclear to me. The Observatory shows it to already be open. From the rolloff simulator view it is does not provide a visual indication but it is actually closed.

The second screenshot is after pressing the Observatory park button. The Observatory now indicates both open and closed (bcause it fails to complete) and the rolloff error indicates it considered it to have already been closed.

You can not get them in sync and working by using either's Park/Unpark buttons. But if you use the Rolloff Open/Close to sync them up, the Observatories Park/Unpark buttons then work.

Running the scheduler from initial conditions using simulators appears to reflect the issue. There is a Dome already unparked message logged by the simulator and the rolloff's indi panel indicates no attempt to open the roof from its closed position.

There might be other issues with scheduling simulators, focusing failed and it looped on shutdown issuing mount unparked messages.

Tom Gibson replied to the topic 'Issues with Toupcam driver - capture will not finish' in the forum. 4 weeks ago

In case it is not specific to a particular driver, I have this problem from time to time. ASI071 camera. Last nights session for example was a failure. Not using the scheduler just selecting 60 x 60 second exposures in the camera panel. After 17 exposures it stopped making progress, kept counting down to 0.01 second remaining, then restarted the count from 60 without creating an image or incrementing the completion count. The logging had been focused on an issue with my roof driver but an extraction is below. It shows the transition from the last image collected #17 to when it gave the appearance of just looping.

I'll try and catch it again and what can be seen resource wise with the multiple use of /tmp.

Jasem,
The original panel and these two might have the information you ask for. It is a ASI071 one shot colour camera so I think 16bit RAW bayer would be the answer. 40ms exposure for the individual frames and and 30 or 120 seconds for elapsed time was what was intended, assuming I did not get them the wrong way round in the panel settings.

I don't need it myself, I would mostly like to know if it can be reproduced or if others are able to successfully produce .ser files.

Last night I attempted another run to see if I could determine whether it was simply that a stretch was being forced on the collected frames. In that case unless it can be made optional streaming would not be suitable for planetry work.
Unfortunately I could not get past a CCD driver crash every time it ran.

Turns out to be the last thing I would have expected, the name of the output file. A name under 4 characters results in a crash. M11 fails M11_ is okay.
