Hi Pep,

Nice to see the solution workes!
In all honesty I think it shouldn't be necessary to know so much about Linux to solve these things.....
As for my coordinates I simply look on my phone ;-))

Cheers, Arnold

Hi Cicera,
I see a lot of Linux passing by which I honestly don't understand much of.....
This is my experience:
I have an EQDrive system on my G11 that mimics a Skywatcher mount and so is usable with EQmod.
Worked perfectly with Windows but with Stellarmate I ran into a problem when starting EKOS:

[WARNING] Port /dev/ttyUSB0 is already used by another driver or process.
[WARNING] Communication with /dev/ttyUSB0 @ 9600 failed. Starting Auto Search...

After some talk with Jasem

:
"I'm starting to suspect that something else is interfering with it. Maybe the GPS daemon? in dmesg it was shown pps0
Try to disable gpsd:
sudo systemctl stop gpsd gpsd.socket"

That was it! EQDrive now worked on Stellarmate RPi !
But the problem returned so the final solution:
Now totally disabled the gpsd deamon. Edited the /etc/default/gpsd script and made:

START_DEAMON="false"
USBAUTO="false"
and also put # in front of the rest...

Since then I use it without a glitch :-)

Cheers, Arnold

Let us know whether it was the GPS deamon ;-)

Actually Jasem found out it had to do with the GPS deamon.
I desabled it from startup - after some search on how to do that;-))

I think the problem is solved. My friend could register and bought Stellarmate OS for his RPi4 ;-)

Dear all,
A friend of mine just tried to register and buy Stellarmate for the RPi4 and couldn't.... see attached pic.
What is going wrong here?

Arnold de Bruin created a new topic ' Celestron Skyris' in the forum. 9 months ago

Dear all,
Is there a way to use the Celestron Skyris cam's? I have both the 618m and the 274c and tried them as DMK or V4L2 but get the message:

2019-11-23T14:08:37: [ERROR] Error: unable to open device. Cannot identify /dev/video0: 2, No such file or directory

Is this because of USB3? I would like to use them off course!

Cheers, Arnold

Dear all,
I have a Celestron Skyris 618m and a 274c. Both are made by the Imagingsource (DMK)
Are there drivers for these camera's ?
Under windows the'll run in IC Capture and Astroart for instance, but no go under Stellarmate (which sees them as DMK camera's but refuse to connect)

Arnold de Bruin created a new topic ' plate solving smaller fov=longer search time??' in the forum. 9 months ago

Dear all,
At the moment I use a guidescope (fl=200mm) for plate solving but alignment with the main scope is very important.
I want to use a flipmirror on my main scope (C11) but then the fl=2800mm. And thus a much smaller fov.
Would this lead to very long search times with plate solving?

I actually do both, Kstars/Ekos on my laptop and RealVNC on a second screen attached to my laptop, because I also run a Python program on the SM to control some switches and a servo HAT ;-)
