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?

Arnold de Bruin created a new topic ' Celestron Skyris' in the forum. 2 weeks 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. 3 weeks 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?
Cheers, Arnold

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 ;-)

Hi Tom,
Isn't a joystick more useful outside at the mount? That's how I use it, just to centre my reddot finder on a bright star for instance (nowadays I strictly use platesolving however....)
On the local machine you have the virtual handcontroller on your screen.

Arnold de Bruin replied to the topic 'Issues connecting via ethernet' in the forum. 1 month ago

Hi DJ,
I have almost the same setup. However, I connected my SM thru ethernet with a (netgear)switch that was connected to my home network. In that way the SM gets an IP address that works within your home network!
In your setup you try to connect two different networks with probably different domains (which won't work).
Btw I can testify that connecting your laptop with a ethernet cable as well will give a huge performance advantage especially with downloading images!

Dear all,
Is there a way to edit the "_Internet_Resolved" catalog?
Somehow a wrong link to a wrong star crept in after an internet search and I want to remove it.

Arnold de Bruin replied to the topic 'Shoestring FCUSB' in the forum. 2 months ago

Hello Wouter,
Just tried. If I put the FCUSB in my profile in Ekos directly on the RPi all is fine. Only when I put it in Ekos under windows the opposite happens, as explained in the beginning of this thread.
I attached the log file from my Windows laptop which contains several startups, so a bit longer than necessary :-)
Cheers

Arnold de Bruin created a new topic ' Shoestring FCUSB' in the forum. 2 months ago

Dear all,
Strange thing. I use a laptop (W10) with Kstars/Ekos and a Pi running the drivers/PHD2.
When I connect without putting my Shoestring FCUSB in my profile, it isn't available... duh you would say.
However when I put the FCUSB in my profile I get a message like "INDI cannot connect to driver" and it doesn't startup.
Then I remove the FCUSB from my profile and it all starts without problems INCLUDING FCUSB. Now I can use the focus tab.
Wouter, any idea?
