Yes, but it should be streamlined and easy, especially for new users, I have been telling the developer for a year now about this…the issue with this software is that they are always trying to make it more complex and better, which is good, BUT not at the expense of the little things still not working, it puts newbies off..

It has not worked for over a year, I have asked numerous times for it to be fixed, but again it fell on deaf ears…not everyone wants to or can update from the terminal….so this should really work…but hey ho…

I have also have had EQMOD issues for about three months, and these have still not been sorted and had to abandon INdI because of it, the EQMOD driver is bad and full of bugs, not sure what has changed but it used to work well, but as of late, no :( :(

I doubt this will happen, the Astroberry PPA is only updated with stable versions, as in new and beta versions there are always loads of bugs and the developer of AB does not have the time to sort them all out as he does this for free, so he will only update his PPA with stable versions, when all bugs are sorted, which I personally prefer…..
I am sure he will correct me if I am wrong, but I doubt they I am….

Just a quick question, do you still need Astrometry in the Ekos profile for stellasolver to work … or not..??

I’ve already said, it’s the same SDK as already used, but these cameras are quite old so not included, but the Legacy drivers in the Atik website does include them… and I have the windows drivers now, from the Atik website, so it’s not that difficult for someone with the skills…it’s just a matter of adding the correct info to the driver….

Hi all,I have an Atik 4000 mono camera that was made my Atik OEM for a scientific company called Synoptics, it’s identical but it does not work with the Atik drivers, so guess the company made there own from the available SDK.Any idea how I can get this to work with INdI Atik driver…imactually have three camera all mono and mint, the Atik 4000 mono, Atik 428 mono and the Atik 450 mono, all work fine got them all for £200 and was going to sell them on, but need to get them to work first….

Just put system on for the first time in a few weeks, and now the Pegasus UPB is now failing to connect with a Serial error, in fact it’s not even finding the serial port, and yet nothing has changed other than being updated…

the tabs all sometimes come up, and all work but I get this constant scrolling serial port error, which is similar to my EQMOD issue, which also was never solved…

so has anyone made changes to this driver as I know there were some issues and people were looking at this, because if there is that have trashed the driver now…..
any ideas…??
