I only get that on my Mac if I am downloading the files (save to client). I usually save directly on the RPi (save local),and I can’t see the images.

Update: I think the aperture is changing. I can hear it when I press “Set”. It is still showing 10 no matter what I set it to, I suspect it is changing but not updating the left window.

Ryan created a new topic ' Astromechanics Canon Lens Focuser - Aperture Setting?' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

I recently acquired the Astromechanics lens focuser for Canon lenses. I'm using an ASI1600mm with filter wheel connected to the focuser then lens. Via Ekos, it detects the focuser and functions. I am able to use the autofocus routine successfully. I am unclear on the aperture setting though. When I go in the the control panel, in the Main Control tab, the aperture is set at 10. Allowed values, as I understand it, are 0-22. If I try to change the value (enter a new value in the right box, then press Set the message returned is "SetApperture(X)" where X is the value I entered. However, the actual value remains at 10. Any thoughts/suggestions?

That's what I saw on mine. I was able to right click and one of the options is eject (or unmount, can't remember exactly). Once I did that the boxes went away and it connected.

They came back up at each startup. I was able to disable it with a command line instruction, but can't remember which one. Let me know if the right click worse, if it does I'll find the command that disabled it permanently.

I had that on RPi3. When I remoted into it the camera had been auto mounted on the Pi. I was able to eject from there and it recognized the camera. This was a 1Dx, but may be worth a look.

The lens is a 100-400 f/4-5.6 II, great lens. I have a 500 f/4 I am going to to, but I wanted to make sure I had everything dialed in before using that one.

It's all working! Last night I took multiple sequences, lights and darks, all automated. Plate solving worked well, Guiding was good, and no issues with the camera. Now to work on fine tuning the settings (and processing), but first images are below. What a great tool!

Thank you Herrhausen - that worked. Previously I had mirror lockup turned on and it was refusing to take the picture; I suspect I had it turned on in the camera and off in INDI. With both enabled it seems to be working.

For the "Saving Image", once I changed to save to SD it hasn't come back. I'm hopeful it's ready to go.
