Hi @All

As the topic says, I´m thinking about the performance of the OS, that means, working remote via Hotspot with Kstars and Ekos on the RPI4.

When imaging with Ekos , the RPI gets very stiff. As specially when Ekos starts guiding and for Example i want to move the Fits-Imgaer-Window or change from Camera control to somewhere else, f.E. to guiding, or planner ...., there is a big timeshift until there is a reaction.

My gear:
RPI4 with 2 or 4Gb and Astroberry 2.0.1
Phoenix Pocket Powerbox or Ultimate power box V2
USB3 7-port Hub
iOptron CEM25p or CEM60 or LX200
SXVR-H18 or Trius SX694
Lodestar
SX-Filter-Wheel
Robofocus or Focusser of the UPB V2

Nothing special I think.
Because of that i use Kstars for Windows on my notebook and use Astroberry as indi-server. Both is connected via Wlan and works fine.

What do the experts say ? Do I expect too much from the RPI4?
Or do I have to use a "stronger" Hardware ?

Hi Wildi!

Thanks a lot.

I use the basic, with the classic i get a lot error-massages.
I´m using Astroberry, there I don´t find the FS2.
It´s really sad, that Sigurd is not working any more on that controller. It is a very good piece of tecnique. Never had any issue with it.

Hello All,

I own both now, Pocket and Ultimate V2
The Integration of the UPB is better than the UPB V2.
The Pocket shows in the Dome Section Temp, Humidity and dew point.
The Ultimate nothing of that. Empty.

In the Indi-Control-Panel I see everything and I can control everything.

As dmsummers wrote, it would be nice to see some of the options of the windows program in Ekos.

Hi Radek,

I did the update via update & upgrade.
After that and a reboot, the start image shows still 2.0.0
Did you forget to change that or did something went wrong with the update ?

Thanks Paul,

so as I understand both powerboxes, Pocket and Ultimate, are not ready integrated in Ekos.
Ok, so lets look what the future brings.

Hello All,

Astroberry 2.0, RPI4 and the the Pegasus PPB Driver.

At indi Control Panel everything is fine, but in Ekos I find a Dome/Weather Tab.
Dome is greyed out and at weather I see Temperature, Humidity and Dew Point. Weather is ok is also shown.

Regarding Ports, Voltages and Current I don´t find anything at EKOS. I have to check that at INDI Control Panel.

Any idear ?

Reiner vom Bruch replied to the topic 'Astroberry GPS with Adafruit GPS breakout board' in the forum. 1 month ago

Hello!

An old threat, but its exactly the point

I use a fresh installed astroberry image.
then I edit the file /etc/default/gpsd and add the following: DEVICES="/dev/ttyUSB0"
(the orginal was DEVICES="/dev/ttyS0", but this is not working)
After that I connect the Adafruit GPS at USB and reboot.

The GPS is detected and the System asks me to use the GPS as time source. I agree, but nothing happens with the system-time.

In Ekos in the GPSD area, Main Control the correct coordinates and time are displayed
At Options the Time Source is set to GPS.

Any idear ?

Would it be possible to get the time from a connected mount with GPS? For example iOptron ?

I´ve googled for this, but at astroberry I don´t find this :
Change the date and time
Open the Activities overview and start typing Settings.
Click on Settings.
Click Details in the sidebar.
Click Date & Time in the sidebar to open the panel.
If you have the Automatic Date & Time switch set to on, your date and time should update automatically if you have an internet connection.


Unfortunatelly Raspbian Desktop Environment (LXDE) does not include a standard tool to set the date and time. The easiest way is to issue a command on the command line, the following are some examples...
<code>
sudo date -s "Mon Aug 12 20:14:11 UTC 2014"
sudo date 06211345
sudo date –s “June 21 13:45”
sudo date –s “21 June 13:45 2012”
sudo date –s “13:45 June 21”
sudo date –s “Jun 21 1:45pm”
sudo date –s “Next Thursday 13:45”
</code>

It's actually good change request... I will need to add it to the system in a future release.



Hi Radek,

that did not work. I investigated via google and found this orders. And they work.

First Stop automatic time update
timedatectl set-ntp 0

sudo timedatectl set-time 2020-01-14
sudo timedatectl set-time 20:15


If you want to restart automatic time update:

timedatectl set-ntp 1

Hi Radek,

where did you hide the Ubuntu Date and Time-Setting ?

When I´m in the Field with no internet, I need to set the time manualy.

In parallel I´ve took a look on indigo, wich also is based on indi (as I understand)
Here I have the function reboot and shutdown in the server area. And it works perfect.
So this shoud be possible

Hi Radek,

I tried that:
Sorry, the requested URL 'http://192.168.2.155:8624/api/system/poweroff' caused an error:

Hello All!

I´m talking about a remote session with Windows KStars and an INDI-Server running on a Pi.

When the astro-session is finished, it would be the easy to shut down the Pi by a Button that is integrated in the INDI Web Manager.
Up to now I then start VNC, log in into Ubunto Desktop and start the shutdown-sequence from there. A bit laboratious, isn´t it ?

Because I´m new to INDI, perhaps someone has a better way for me.
