what about adding a summary of the items that are part of the train on the empty space of the train's dropdown?

At the time I bought the camera I was in touch with people from QHY and they told me that there is no way to attach a RF lens to the QHY600, maybe this has changed in the mean time, you have to check this with QHY.

Hi
I'm highly interested in having Ekos helping me to set the correct rotation angle of my camera. So far I do this completely manually with Plate Solving which has some traps and problems.

That's how I do it currently:
- Load & Slew Image (image from a previous night)
loop until CameraAngleIsCorrect
- Check the plate solve overlay (the rectangular camera FOV) in KStars and estimate the angle that I need to rotate my camera, I have no rotator so rotating for me means manually turning the camera
- Plate Solve again
endLoop

The problem with my approach is that KStars is 'messed up' with a lot of plate solve overlays and I usually loose the overview of which is the most current overlay of a solved image (if the angles of the overlays are having small differences only, it's difficult to see which overlay is the most current one). So I usually disconnect all devices, stop Ekos, exit KStars and restart them all again, this clears all the Plate Solve overlays in KStars. Maybe I'm not aware of an easy way keep the most current FOV overlay only.

The solution which I would consider as brilliant is the approach from Rick (see: www.indilib.org/forum/wish-list/8441-man...-rotation.html#65441). If this could be implemented in way that people without an electronic camera rotator could also use it easily, I think this would be perfect.

Hi Davide
Yes, that's possible. I'm using a QHY-5LII guider camera and a QHY600 as the main camera, both at the same time controlled by Ekos/Indi.

Hi Peter
I used to have very strange behaviors and errors with my attached devices from time to time. After a few frustrating nights I decided to replace all my USB cables with high quality ones and also I bought the Powerbox from Pegasus and since then these problems all disappeared.

Thomas Pfenninger replied to the topic 'Hide Dome tab' in the forum. 7 months ago

I experienced the same behavior. As soon as I connect my Pegasus PowerBox (which has a temperature and a humidity sensor), I then have the 'Dome' tab visible in Ekos.

David, I'm using the Pegasus FocusCube. It is of brilliant build quality and absolutely precise and reliable. I can only recommend it.
Installing it for the use with my Sigma125mm lens needed a bit of fiddling but it works very well now.

Hi Wolfgang, thanks for replying!
KStars 3.5.9 is available for the Mac since end of May, I downloaded it from edu.kde.org/kstars/
I'm in touch with Stefano from Avalon, he confirmed me that on a Mac he found the same issue with KStars 3.5.5, so I guess it is a problem that exists since a while. If I can help you debug or test anything please approach me, I'm happy to help.

Hi

Yesterday I received my brandnew Avaloq EvoZero and today I did the first tests with her in the living room. The mount has the latest firmware installed.
Unfortunately the indi_lx200stargo mount driver crashes immediately after its startup. The Avalon legacy driver connects without problems but I'd rather use the Avalon StarGo driver.

Kstars 3.5.9 an a MacBook Pro (Intel, macOS 12.4) with these devices attached:
- Avalon StarGo Mount
- CCD Sim

This is what I'm doing:
- Starting Ekos
- Clicking the 'connect' button in the mount tab
- very shortly I can see 'Avalon StarGo' online in the console
- Avalon StarGo mount tab disappears, driver has crashed

Is this a bug or is it me doing a mistake?
thousand thanks for any help.
Thomas


This is the log, I hope I included the relevant things:

thank you Tim, now I know how to set the aperture manually. In my case (using the Canon's RF mount) I simply do the following:
- With the lens attached to the Canon R5 and the camera powered on I set the aperture to f3.5
- I do not switch off the camera
- I remove the lens from the Canon R5 (Canon advises against doing this as the sensor is unprotected with the Camera powered and the lens removed)
- The lens keeps the aperture of f3.5 after it was removed from the camera body

Needless to say, I remove the lens very carefully and cover the sensor immediately with the cap.

Regards

Hi all

I'm currently setting up a new configuration for wide field photography. Also this configuration should be as small and transportable as possible.
I want to use one of my Canon lenses connected at my (soon arriving) QHY600 color CMOS. I have several lenses but I don't know yet which one will be the best performer. I think that my Canon RF 70-200 f2.8 will be the first choice.
The mount is a iOptron tracker and with the zoom capabilities of the lens I can use a focal length that is ok for the tracker, I hope that I can use it up to 150mm and 1 minute exposure but I have to test how precise the tracker will perform.

Now my question. Does anyone know how I can set the aperture of the lens? I believe that the lens is always at f2.8 if it is not connected to a camera body. Can I set the aperture with the Canon camera connected and then after removing the lens from the body this aperture is still kept? Let's say I have the lens connected to my R5 and set aperture to f3.5 and then remove the lens from the R5, will then the aperture stay at f3.5?

Any help or suggestion is appreciated.

Thomas
