Great advice, I'll try it. Thank you.

Thank you very much.

But:
1. How to blind solve in EKOS?
2. How to temporarily change FOV manually if I needed it?

Hi,

is it possible to somehow set in EKOS that I have a Barlow lens in front of the camera to adjust the FOV? When you add a Barlow lens, the FOV changes and the plate solving stops working.

Thanks

Marek Brunda replied to the topic 'Problem with indi_getprop' in the forum. 2 months ago

I rewrrote the function crackDPE in file getINDIproperty.c and it works. But it's quick and dirty solution for today's observation without knowledge of other connections to anonother parts of code. Analogous changes need to be made in setINDIproperty.c.

/* crack spec and add to srchs[], else exit */
static void crackDPE(char *spec)
{
    char d[1024], p[1024], e[1024];
    char buf[3*1024];
    char *ptr;

    strncpy(buf, spec, 3*1024);
    buf[3*1024-1] = 0;

    if (verbose)
        fprintf(stderr, "looking for %s\n", spec);

    ptr = strrchr(buf, '.');
    if(!ptr) {
       fprintf(stderr, "Unknown format for property spec: %s\n", spec);
       usage();
    }
    *ptr++ = 0;
    strncpy(e, ptr, 1024);
    e[1023] = 0;

    ptr = strrchr(buf, '.');
    if(!ptr) {
       fprintf(stderr, "Unknown format for property spec: %s\n", spec);
       usage();
    }
    *ptr++ = 0;
    strncpy(p, ptr, 1024);
    p[1023] = 0;

    strncpy(d, buf, 1024);
    d[1023] = 0;

    addSearchDef(d, p, e);
}

Marek Brunda created a new topic ' Problem with indi_getprop' in the forum. 2 months ago

Hi, look at this session:

marekb ~ $ indi_getprop | grep CONNECTION.CONNECT
EQMod Mount.CONNECTION.CONNECT=Off
Joystick.CONNECTION.CONNECT=Off
GPS NMEA.CONNECTION.CONNECT=Off
Pegasus UBP.CONNECTION.CONNECT=Off
Toupcam EP3CMOS02300KPC(USB2.0).CONNECTION.CONNECT=Off

marekb ~ $ indi_getprop "Pegasus UBP.CONNECTION.CONNECT"
Pegasus UBP.CONNECTION.CONNECT=Off

marekb ~ $ indi_getprop "Toupcam EP3CMOS02300KPC(USB2.0).CONNECTION.CONNECT"
No Toupcam EP3CMOS02300KPC(USB2.0).CONNECTION from localhost:7624

indi_getprop appears to have a problem with the device name that contains either a period or a parenthesis, in this case device "Toupcam EP3CMOS02300KPC(USB2.0)". Is there any workaround, how to use indi_getprop/indi_setprop with this device?

Marek Brunda created a new topic ' Questions about indi drivers' in the forum. 2 months ago

1. Is it possible to set up an INDI driver (specifically indi_toupcam_ccd) to work with only one camera from the same manufacturer and not all that it finds?

2. Is it possible for 2 cameras from the same manufacturer to run for each one driver, which would control only one camera?

Please, can someone, who owns ZWO EAF, post an output of the following command?

indi_getprop

In addition, I would be very grateful, if someone would confirm, if the ZWO EAF configuration in the graphical indi client can enable joystick support as it is in the focuser simulator.

Thank you

Thanks for the reply. I was looking at CCD simulator code. Unfortunately, I did not find any example how to use streaming in INDI client.

Marek Brunda created a new topic ' How to use streammanager?' in the forum. 8 months ago

Please,

where would I find some more detailed documentation, or some examples, or at least the source code of a Linux application to understand how to use streammanager in my INDI client?

All I found is this www.indilib.org/api/classStreamManager.html
but I didn't understand how to use it in my code?

The goal is to get the live image from the INDI camera and display it in the application window.

Thanks
