I can't help with the log files, but I have had similar behavior from my EQ6-R Pro with it starting to flip and then just stopping. A subsequent GoTo command put it on target on the wrong side of the pier.

So, after reading some other forum posts, I now have the meridian flip set to trigger at + 0.2 hours instead of the default of 0. At that hour angle, the mount has no doubt that it is past the meridian, so it completes the flip.

In the guiding tab, select your guide camera as the camera and as the mount. That will tell Stellarmate to send guiding commands back through the guide camera, which will route them to your ST4 port.

SSAG now capturing and looping images on the Pi3. I will try the Pi4 later. Thank you so much.

Tim Roske replied to the topic 'QHY5 - [ERROR] GetQHYCCDSingleFrame error (-1)' in the forum. 2 months ago

I am still getting this error on the latest 1.4.4 Rpi3 and Rpi4 versions. I ran software updater today, Sept. 29, on both machines and the rules file in lib\udev\rules.d was updated with the 9/28/2019 85-QHYCCD.rules. I have rebooted both machines a number of times.

My camera is the Orion SSAG. It has worked well in the past connected as a QHY. On Stellarmate, the camera is listed as QHY-M-. In the rules file, under SSAG, it says stuff like idproduct "0011" and QHY5Loader.hex.

It connects with no problems, but will not take a picture. In the camera module it says capture aborted and in another place it says GetQHYCCDSingleFrame error (-1)

Do I need to run a firmware update or downgrade on the camera somehow?

What else should I be doing to make this work?

Thank you. Apparently, the first time I ran software updater, it did not update the indi library. The camera is connected and capturing frames now.

I am having the same problem with the QHY driver crashing on Stellarmate. Using an SSAG that worked before the latest update.
