Thanks Jasem
I've compiled the latest build with the v 0,5 MyFP2 changes and all appears to be well

I'm no longer able to reproduce the issue

Nice one

Thanks Alan, Rob and Jasem

Hi Pierre-Yves

I wasn't aware that this behaviour was frequent in other drivers too. Good to know

I've logged it as an issue on the INDI github page

What causes the behaviour with the fields "to the right" getting populated/non-populated given the steps i followed ?
NB: Nothing was manually changed when walking through those steps yet the fields "to the right" got set to zero and then subsequently got populated without any intervention

Thanks Rob

I'm now able to reproduce the issue consistently


Steps to reproduce the issue:

I'll walk through the steps to reproduce the issue based on Stellarmate as that's the build I use

1. Start up the Stellarmate Web Manager
stellarmate.local:8624

2. Start the INDI server
All devices defined in the equipment profile will start-up as expected

3. Open Kstars
4. From the Kstars "Tools" menu select "Ekos"
5. "Start" Ekos from the "Ekos Profile - KStars" GUI
In my case, I have it set in my equipmemt profile to "auto connect" all devices

6. Click "Connect" to connect all devices defined in the equipment profile
7. Once the "INDI Control Panel - Kstars" screen opens then navigate to the MyFocuserPro2 page

Note the values shown in "Absolute Position" and "Max Position" fields
e.g. In my case see the first screen capture below

Note the empty fields for Absolute Position and Max Position

8. Close the "INDI Control Panel - Kstars" screen
9. Click "Disconnect" to disconnect all devices
10. Stop Ekos
11. Close Kstars


Follow steps 3 through 7 again
Now note that this time once you get to step 7, the Absolute Position and Max Position fields are now populated as expected
e.g. In my case see the second screen capture below

12. Close all screens and disconnect devices
13. Stop the indi server via the Stellarmate web manager
stellarmate.local:8624


Repeat the steps 1 through 7 to reproduce the issue again

If you don't use Stellarmate, substitute steps 1,2 and 13 for the equivalent steps for your set-up

Abs and Max fields not populated

I should point out that I observe the same issue with the kstars/indi Windows build (Windows 10) as well as directly with the kstars/indi build on Stellarmate on the Raspberry Pi

Shutting down the client windows and opening them up again will sometimes *not* show a value in the fields (hi-lighted in red in my screen captures) then for the same session shutting down
the client windows and stopping/re-starting indi will sometimes show a value in the field.

I observe that shutting down kstars completely and then restarting is another way that I'm able to reproduce the issue (sometimes)

I've not yet worked out the exact pattern/scenario to reproduce this consistently but I'll stick with it until I do.

A fresh install is a good idea. I have a vanilla build of Stellarmate on another SD card which I can bring into play.

I'll see about starting from that sd card then fetch the nightly build and then see if I can reproduce the issue

Gave version 4 of the MyFP2 indi driver a sanity test run last night

Not the best night for it with the clouds rolling in, but gave it a shot

Video below of a focuser test on Caph.
Clouds made a mess of the V curve, but otherwise a good outcome


[video]

One observation, not confined to version 4 of the indi driver, but seems to be an issue on versions 1,2,3 and 4:

The focuser "Absolute Position" and "Max Position" fields do not always show the current values both on the focuser settings page and also
on the indi focuser page

See highlighted fields in the screen captures below for reference

Seems somewhat inconsistent as the two values do sometimes persist after a closing then re-opening the indi/ekos windows but the values
do not always seem to survive a full shutdown/restart of indi






Focused on Caph


Focuser firmware version 291

Nice one Alan

I see your (v 0.4) commits from yesterday on your git fork to the following code files:

myfocuserpro2.h
myfocuserpro2.cpp


Just waiting for these to be reflected in the main branch now

Perhaps Jasem can support on that

Wow

I ran the ASTAP app on a Raspberry Pi 4/4Gb
I know ASTAP is fast but this is nuts

ASTAP solved my DSLR fits files of M31 in 2.8 seconds


Really would like to have this as an alternate solver in ekos...
