Hi all,

I am having some trouble with the DSD AF3 using indi and kstars.

No matter what I do the focus in button in Ekos moves the focuser out. It works fine with ASCOM as confirmed by Pavle (dsd vendor).

Here is the procedure I have followed in trying to solve this, using a Rpi 4, Raspbian and latest indi and kstars:

1) disconnect af3 power and usb
2) reconnect af3
3) start kstars
4) open ekos
5) start ekos
6) in indi control panel "reverse motion" is enabled
7) open focus tool
8) focus in button moves pulley CCW
9) in indi control panel change reverse motion to disabled
10) in indi control panel af3 options tab save configuration
11) in focus tool focus in button still moves pulley CCW
12) stop kstars
13) disconnect af3 power and usb
14) reconnect af3
15) restart kstars and ekos
16) indi control panel reverse motion is disabled
17) focus in button still moves pulley CCW

If anyone can see what I am doing wrong I would be grateful.

Cheers,

Stephen S.

This happened to me a lot in the beginning but the mistakes were my own. I just installed a new image on the sd card and tried again. Each time I make a successful change I make a backup image so I can revert to that after my next mistake without losing previous work.

No doubt a silly question : using VNC on windows to connect to Astroberry I can copy and paste from ubuntu terminal to windows but not the other direction.

The instructions here: www.realvnc.com/en/connect/docs/copy-paste-text.html
do not help ... VNC server configuration looks fine.

Help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

Stephen

<code>
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mutlaqja/libgphoto2
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -y dist-upgrade
</code>

Then try the driver again.


FWIW I had the same problem with Canon t6i and this fixed it right up.

Hi,

The github Astroberry page says:

“Starting from version 1.1.0 you need to ref lash your microSD card with the latest image file to upgrade the system. To upgrade your operating system use regular procedure by running apt, apt-get, aptitude or Software Updater.”

Does this mean that I cannot update, for instance , Kstars without breaking something?

Thanks for the help.

Stephen S.
