An old bug still there with 3.5.9 stable. The mouse pointer disappears under Wayland. Any chance to fix it ? (building with different parameters, etc ... )

Same here ... I have an ASI 290mm and a 462c for planetary imaging and an ASI1600mm for deep space. For very small objects I tried to use the 290 but encountered the same problem. So your post was the occasion to go deeper into the subject. :)

I tried to solve according to your specs, using the simulators and GSC . As I suspected, I only managed to solve when I was inside the Milky Way. Everywhere else it seems there is not enough stars in the FOV for the solver to work.

Applying Pythagorean Theorem, your circular FOV is 13.47' . So first of all, you need to see if you've got the index-4205-*.fits. Look at Align/Options/Index files for this. Eventually download it. That said, this field is VERY small so chances are you won't have enough stars in your image to solve your position, except maybe if you're pointing at some object inside the Milky Way.
There nothing to do with this, it's not a bug and you're not responsible. Try with a camera with a larger FOV and it will work fine. I have a Celestron C11 XLT (same focal lengh) and it solves perfectly with my ASI1600.

Hi Harkant,

To connect the D750 to your computer, you just need the USB2 cable provided with your body. I suppose you can buy one on the Nikon website (?) or Ebay. if yours has been lost.
The link can't be done through WIFI on the D750, sorry.

Kevin says :

"Well one thing is certain, if the OS doesn't see the device, INDI never will. So this appears to be either an OS-level, or hardware issue, and not an INDI issue."
Agreed !

"What does dmesg say when plugging in the device?"
Nothing, as for the OS, the EFW plugged to the hub simply does not exist .

You say this happens no matter what hub you use, and both on Raspberry Pi, as well as your laptop? Is that correct?
Absolutely.

Now ...

I tried to plug 2 USB keys to the camera hub : it Works, the keys are both available Read/Write.
Same if I plug the USB keys to a separate hub.

So it appears the EFW **IS** the problem.

I tried this set up:

- Focuser and ASI290mm plugged to the camera hub (USB port 1 on the Pi)
- EFW on USB port 2
- Mount on USB port 3
- Wireless joystick on USB port 4

Everything works fine, but I still don't understand why the EFW on a hub isn't detected by the system.
And by the way ... ASI290mm and EFW on a hub both work ... Under Windows ... Which excludes any EFW related problem :(

It did work several months ago and I didn't change any piece of hardware since ... Plus, the Pi is powered by a 3000 mA source. More than enough IMHO.

Hi Kevin,

# First attempt, user "astro", filter wheel plugged to the camera hub, 2 cameras + EFW :

[astro@astra:~]$ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 009: ID 03c3:462b
Bus 001 Device 010: ID 03c3:1604
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 04b4:6572 Cypress Semiconductor Corp.
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0424:ec00 Standard Microsystems Corp. SMSC9512/9514 Fast Ethernet Adapter
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0424:9514 Standard Microsystems Corp. SMC9514 Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

# Second attempt, user "root", filter wheel plugged to the camera hub:

[astro@astra:~]$ sudo lsusb
Bus 001 Device 009: ID 03c3:462b
Bus 001 Device 010: ID 03c3:1604
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 04b4:6572 Cypress Semiconductor Corp.
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0424:ec00 Standard Microsystems Corp. SMSC9512/9514 Fast Ethernet Adapter
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0424:9514 Standard Microsystems Corp. SMC9514 Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

# Third attempt, user astro, filter wheel plugged directly to the Pi
[astro@astra:~]$ lsusb
Bus 001 Device 013: ID 03c3:462b
Bus 001 Device 011: ID 03c3:1604
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 04b4:6572 Cypress Semiconductor Corp.
Bus 001 Device 012: ID 03c3:1f01
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0424:ec00 Standard Microsystems Corp. SMSC9512/9514 Fast Ethernet Adapter
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0424:9514 Standard Microsystems Corp. SMC9514 Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

As you can see, the filter wheel ( Bus 001 Device 012: ID 03c3:1f01 ) doesn't show up when connected to the camera hub.
Not even under the root account.

It is only visible when plugged directly (the third attempt).

Marc created a new topic ' Bug connecting through a hub ...' in the forum. 1 year ago

Hello everybody,

After a few months off, I'm back to deep sky imaging. So two days ago, after having updated everything, ( Fedora 34 and last GitHub version ) I had a very bad surprise.
Usually my setup for deep sky imaging is the following :

- one mount SW EQ6-R Pro
- one ASI1600mm Pro ( imaging )
- one ASI290mm ( autoguiding)
- one ASI EFW mini filter wheel
- one ASI EAF focuser.

I used to connect the ASI290mm and the EFW to the two port hub on the ASI1600mm, and the rest directly to the Raspberry Pi.
This setup used to work perfectly several months ago.

Now, INDI refuses to discover what is plugged to the camera hub, and after a few minutes, everything is freezzed
If I plug everything directly to the Raspberry Pi, it works again, except ... The Pi has only 4 USB ports :( ... So I'm left with a device with no possible connection, except if I chain a second PI. Any kind of separate hub has the same result. What's connected to the hub fails, what's connected directly works. And this with the Pi or directly with my laptop.

Some help would be appreciated. :)

Hi Jim,

Yes, I know copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/xsnrg/, of course :)

All my Raspberry PIs run under Fedora.
This distro works really fine on PIs, i've been using it for years, and I love setting up my network both the old way AND with nmcli) ...

That would be nice to have those 'bleedings' (with the appropriate fedora-repoxx) under Raspberry Pi..

Last time I checked, I dindn't find them.
