Caux replied to the topic 'Ekos crash, all configs are away, no change possible' in the forum. 7 months ago

Hello, thanks for your reply

these files weren't empty, but they don't show my setup (remoted from PI4 in garden),
now it runs fine, I'd to reconfigure and check after new install (astrometry was not lost/trashed :) ), i don't know who are the configs files while some datas weren't lost... but some away or incomplete ?!

I think, it seems, that was maybe a problem with files/folder rights... as no access to xml or other ... I don't know, the difference after the new install: I was only able to reconfigure and edit/save new profiles (not possible after crash, saving new profile/config led to crash).
I've tested it before clouds came, no problem

I think, in my case, that the problem was in folder /home/name/.local/share/kstars
i've not found the xml with "profiles" (disapeared in ekos before the crash), but there is "userdb.sqlite"

I've had this problem only on PC, the PI4 works fine (indiserver + kstars sometimes for polar align...)

Hello,

I've discovered a new crash, but not funny:
Ekos has no more list (profile), I've lost all profiles
I've tried to make new profile: crash

Ekos d'ont work anymore

Caux replied to the topic 'Scope hitting pier' in the forum. 10 months ago

Hello,
I've noticed the same problem with NEQ5/EQMOD/remote Indiserver -> Kstars
For a lot of targets it runs great, than i've found some target unable to solve (usually near zenith or > 75° without "limits" in Ekos), as dec inversed or too many steps/move...
have you seen a solution ?

I use the EQMOD align system
I purge/reset model each times

greetings

Caux replied to the topic 'Amp glow with ASI 183MMPro' in the forum. 2 years ago

hello,
I don't have usb3

but I checked with any PCs under Ubuntu/Windows7/ Windows10 (maybe USB3)
No problem anymore, but it's known that a low rate on USB make the Amp Glow lighter, I've shot a lot in any weeks, the amp-glow appeared with the stretched histogram FITS preview of Kstars but as I push the levels so far I can: no amp-glow on final PICS.
I use only one bank of Darks (Gain 300, T° -15°C), and the amp-glow seems really stable as it appeared never with DOF treatement.

As I've understood, an Astrams has sent 3 times his camera, the fourth and last one has a faint Amp-glow...

Hello,
I use a PI3B+ with Ubuntu Mate 16.04LTS, INDI/Kstars/Ekos
IndiLib updated 1.7.4

I have the big "amp Glow" with the ASI183MMPro, Gain 200, Exp: 180s, T° 10°C


Checked the forums/topics everywhere, it' seems normal but ZWO and QHY (same sensors) have corrected the drivers to compensate (Dark calibration ? I'm not sure)
Tested under Windows 7, Last ZWO Driver, Sharpcap: no amp glow with: ASI183MMPro, Gain 200, Exp: 180s, T° 10°C
very high contrasted picture (windows picture manager)



has someone an issue to this ?
I've to test furthers solutions, but now I've to go at work :(

Thanks all :)

You're right, I Have this one:

Tested it with last Upgrade, 3 hours outside, "real condition", 5000ms polling, speed 50, step 100, all ok
rel position always > 50000, but that's not a pb

If the DC2 use the HID layer over the USB Protocol.... pfouuu :( designed for Windows...

Caux replied to the topic 'Hitech Astro DC focuser problem' in the forum. 2 years ago

Hello,

i've no solutions for the driver, but yet (after one day over it) it works ...

Hitecastro DC Focus, Ubuntu Mate 16.04LTS, PI3B+, Kstars/ekos

I've removed definitively the powered USB HUB, and after many many tries it works with this parameters:
Polling 5000ms (yeah, 5 seconds)
Speed 50 or 100 (<50 no function)
Max travel 10000

Steps: between 4000 and 10000 it runs but no update for the position (tiks)
between 20 and 4000 it runs perfectly, only wait 12s (12 seconds) to launch another command

Position: for a move of 2000 steps, the position move of 4000
many tries: always x2

no safe position (limits visible in .cpp)
override below 0, i've reached -2200
I didn't test the override > 10000 (Max travel ?)

At startup the tiks (position) is always 49800 (position not saved)
all others parameters are correctly saved

Nop, now I do the changes on Arduino between my focuser and the solution of Cees Lensink, to use the moonlite driver with my second Setup (Mak100/1400 ASI120)
then,
find a solution for the HitecAstrofocus controler.... or replace it with an Arduino :(
