I seem to have answered this. The Fits Verifier at fits.gsfc.nasa.gov/fits_verify.html says the Fits file is fine. I'm just not reading it corrrectly, I guess.

I'm trying to read the cards from a fits file made by indi. CCfits only reads 39 cards. There are 52 in the header. One of the cards it won't read is "BZERO". The reason I ask if it is wonky is that I expected 36 cards in the primary header and the rest in an extension. I may very well be reading the docs wrong, but CCfits is having trouble reading it. I've looked at Fits files from other sources, but haven't found any that exceed the 36 cards yet.

Thanks,
Dave

Now I'm curious. I have to try it. I have run wired and wireless to the same subnet, but it gives priority to wireless. At least on the newer Mac. I have an older Macbook Pro and a pair of Pi's to play with.

Simon,
I'm running a remote Indi server and I find my current configuration files stored on the server in /home/<user>/.indi
After hitting the "Run" button on Ekos on my workstation, but before I hit "Connect", I saved the config on one device, and looked at the files in the /home/pi/.indi directory and the one I changed had a current timestamp, so it is updating on the server. After I hit "Connect" it updated again, and only the one I changed.
Hope this helps a little.

My mac won't allow two networks at the same time. One or the other. If one is wired and one is wireless, it works. This is in general - not specifically to Stellarmates.

I'm so... I should have asked that question.

Please post the script name you have configured in Ekos, and the script code itself. Just the first 10 lines or so will do.

Thanks

I just had a similar problem last night. When I put a reducer on, built a new scope, and chose it as primary, the solver would not solve it. Plenty of stars. Turns out the FOV was wrong. I manually entered something close and it solved, and then it filled in the proper FOV.

Of course you don't want to kill indiserver - I just used that so I could see it working.

I think I figured it out.

#!/bin/bash
killall /usr/bin/indiserver
exit 0
Works in the scheduler as a shutdown script. When bash closes, it gives a return code.

I always have a VNC open and manually shut the Pi down with sudo shutdown -h now, which I assume works because the Pi goes away. I would test it on my Pi, but the Pi is outside and the ambient temp is 115F. I'l have to wait until it cools off a little before I go out and power it up. I will later. I have to know.

James,
I've done what I believe is correct, which is exactly what you've done. The script executes in terminal but when it says it is running in ekos it does not do what it is supposed to do. I'm going to suggest that there is something I don't know about how Ekos executes shutdown scripts. I used to use scripts all of the time to move images from the default directories to the proper directories in between each capture and that worked perfectly.
