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 )
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:
and also put # in front of the rest...
Since then I use it without a glitch
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
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?
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!
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)
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
