I want to take 100 180 sec subs from for instance M33 but i want to re-align every 20 subs (1 hour).

I tried sequences: 5 jobs of 20 subs and align before each job. But the sequence makes a directory M33 for the subs and it will be used for the first job.
The second, third etc job can not make use of this directory.
So sequences doesn't work.

How can i do this?

Ok topic can be closed. It is solved for now. it were loose allen screws.

Today during daylight i could get a good look at the focusser and there were indeed some allen screw a bit loose.
I saw while the focusser motor was running that the tube sometimes was not moving as if it was slipping.

Now the allen screw are tightend all seems to be ok.

The proof of the pudding i will see tonight.

I have tried other algoritmes but with no effect.
My focusser goes from 0 (full inward) to 100000 (full outward).
When i go to 50000 thru Ekos where my infocus normally was and i try autofocus then i eventually end up around 10000.
Then when i look at my focusser then i see the focusser at around 40000!!! So i thing it must be something like slippage.
I wil look at it today and hopefully i can image tonight.

Since a few days i can get into focus anymore whatever i try.
As i look at the v-curve diagram it looks like there is slippage in the focusser.
Anybodey have another clue?

See the screenprint:

Thanx, i'm currently looking at it and try to get things running.

I just want to build python code to display properties from CCD camera of focusser etc.
Do you have an example?

How can i get the properties like ccd-temperature within a Python script.
I have this code so far:

import dbus
from dbus.mainloop.glib import DBusGMainLoop
DBusGMainLoop(set_as_default=True)

from gi.repository import GObject as gobject

import os
import time

#


# Create a session bus.
bus = dbus.SessionBus()

# Create an object that will proxy for a particular remote object.
remote_object = bus.get_object("org.kde.kstars", # Connection name
"/KStars/INDI" # Object's path
)

# Introspection returns an XML document containing information
# about the methods supported by an interface.
print ("Introspection data:\n")
#print (remote_object.Introspect())

# Get INDI interface
iface = dbus.Interface(remote_object, 'org.kde.kstars.INDI')
print ("Hello, Python!")


devices = iface.getDevices()

print ("We received the following devices:")
for device in devices:
print (device)
#props = iface.GetAll('org.kde.kstars.INDI')
props = iface.getText("OpenWeatherMap", "WEATHER_TEMPERATURE")
print ("Temperature: ", props)

naam = os.getenv('USER')
#naam = os.getenv(`indi_getprop -1 "OpenWeatherMap.WEATHER_STATUS.WEATHER_TEMPERATURE"`)
print ("The user is:", naam)

But i get the error:

TypeError: More items found in D-Bus signature than in Python arguments

Hi all,

Is it possible to make a sequence and use the real asi 294 camera and focusser in this sequence but to use a 'fake' image to focus on and to align on.
My goal is to make a sequence and test this including focus during the daytime?

If so does anybody an example?

Best regards,

Joshua

I saw a new feature: Analyse.
Where can i find documentation about that?

Installed with:

sudo apt-get install indi-full kstars-bleeding resulting in Kstars 3.5.0 beta.

Tried several start/stops and no more crashes.

Thanx all especially Jasem for the effort put into it.

Is it also possible to connect the devices one by one thru a script manually?
