I would agree, but I see several strange issues:

screen resolution suddenly very low,
PHD2 guiding became really, really bad, still works though (related to screen resolution issue???)
Filter change creates hangups almost nightly. NO: nightly
post flip alignment hangs on occasion
and my iMac has to think a lot more for some reason, as documented by the cooling fan coming on, which it didn't need before
and there is more....

about to revert to my old setup...

Any behavioral changes in your setup?

Thanks

But it crashes and crashes and crashes.... hangs on filter change mostly, and I understand that is a common problem, so probably not related to Myfocuserpro2, or my installation skills....

Are you aware of a solution, is there somewhere a Nightly builds maybe? Cant seem to locate that

Thanks!

Ok, maybe somebody else is checking this out and finds it helpful ...

First, Thanks Alan, love that driver, and I would award you 2 or three extra Karmas....

Took my astroberry installation down because I never could update PHD2 it due to some weird Firefox error, installed Raspbian, but due to incompetence I was not able to complete KStars build/ install

Reverted back to Astroberry to have at least my previous used KStars solution; poked around a little and found an “install Updates” feature, and “what the heck” clicked on it. 1 hour later i returned, and was able to -for the first time- start Firefox.

Started PHD2- and to my total surprise it was up to date.
Started KStars, and it had updated to 3.3.7! Wow...
Started the INDI server, and the MyfocuserPro2 Driver was right there and started w/o problems.... WOW WOW

No other issues, your driver - and I checked it back and forth - is working great

Now I just will have to get me a RbPi4

like i said, I don't know nothing....

I downloaded the current Astroberry image(1.1.0) and flashed it. its running under Ubuntu Mate

up to this point I was running Kstars on my iMac, und only PHD2 and INDI server on RbPi at the scope...


Thanks

Gentlemen,

Here is a MAC guy, proudly built my 3D printed focuser rotator, both controlled by Arduinos, via Astroberry.

Very enthusiastically downloaded the new kstars, and immediately reprogrammed my focuser Arduino with Myfocuserpro2, only to find out that my Astroberry doesn't speak that language yet....

would be so eager to try, and don't want to wate until Astroberry is updated.

Is there a "RbPi3" for dummies, or a simple explanation/ tutorial how to get that INDI driver uploaded to Astroberry?

Thanks

Michael replied to the topic 'Meridian Flip + Scheduler + Mac = no meridian flip' in the forum. 2 months ago

slightly off topic, as my issue is not related to the scheduler module.....

my meridian flip fails when one does not check BOTH "Meridian Flip Box" in both, the Capture module AND the Mount module.

I am not sure if I understand the rationale behind that.... could be an easy fix, too

Thanks

Michael replied to the topic 'autoselect star...... subframe.....' in the forum. 3 months ago

all good ideas and I will check (again) into that full frame thing. tried already a few times, but I always lost my nerve because that process takes soooooo long...

Here is my idea:
It would be nice to have an option to restrict the search area for "autoselect star" to a smaller window which could "flip" with the meridian flip, that one can stay away from a galaxy. And also stay away from the very corners of the image, where the field flatteners have their problems. This is where my "autoselect" often goes....

Thanks all!

Michael created a new topic ' autoselect star...... subframe.....' in the forum. 3 months ago

had several sessions corrupted by a failed autofocus procedure:

after meridian flip the subframe is most likely empty...
occasionally "autoselect star" chooses the center of a galaxy and is unsuccessful...


do you have any suggestions?

Well, that is probably true for the pro units, but if you have a 3D printer, and too much time on your hands?
