Doing spectroscopy I usually have to use "search internet" in the finder because the stars I need are not in the catalog. Once found then they are apparently added to the database because I can find them in Ekos the next time.
My question is: where are they saved - in which database - and can I make a backup? otherwise when I need to build a new image for instance, I loose all those added stars.
Yes I still use PHD2 although on a RPi4. Never had this issue..... What happens if you go to the PHD2 menu and again click <show slit> while guiding?
Yes I'm Dutch
Pity it doesn't work for you. No idea what else to do I'm afraid...........
Why do you want more than 3 sec? For plate solving and guiding this is enough, no?
Last september in France we made an IOptron 45 work by disabling the gps deamon - see older posts.
This deamon has messed-up more mount connections but perhaps my findings are out-dated and perhaps it has been solved......
Did so and they are looking into it!
I did use the terminal. Had to google all the commands - like how to make a symbolic link (ln -s) - but in the end it was not difficult.
First I copied the libASICamers2.1.15.0617 from SM 1.54 on a usb stick.
Then started with SM 1.60
In terminal I typed: sudo -i
That made copying all the files possible.
I renamed the libASICamera2.so.1.1.20 file and the symbolic links by placing "bck_" in front of the file names with the mv command so I wouldn't loose them.
Then I copied the old libASICamera2.so.1.15.0617 from the usb stick. Can also be done with the mv command.
Then made 2 new symbolic links. You have to google exactly how to do this with the ln -s command but its easy
Then all worked perfectly!
Mind you, I am in NO way a linux expert. On the contrary
So there will be better ways no doubt......
Hope this helps, cheers,
Solved!! Thanks to Jarno Paananen.
As I found out, I had to create 2 symbolic links as well. It works great now
My ASI174mm can now make exposures>1 second!
I run SM 1.60 but I need an indi_asi_cdd driver compiled with the ASI SDK from SM 1.54
This because I run into a 1 second exposure limit with my ASI174mm which didn't exist in SM 1.54
Jasem explained to me that the problem lies in the latest ZWO/ASI SDK. I reported this to ZWO and they are looking into this as well.
Is there anybody who can recompile the latest driver with the older SDK used in SM 1.54?
I am afraid that it's beyond my competence!
Ok, I reported this SDK bug in the INDI driver to ZWO support.
Just tested a friend's ASI294mc and all works good. 5 seconds, no problem.
So I guess its something with my asi174mm. Perhaps firmware....
