Sorry for the delay - I though I had replied earlier but must have made a mistake...
Here is the log file.
Hi, Jasem, sorry, I thought I had managed to attach it!. I've tried again!
as further info, I've duplicated the problem with another laptop, Both are running v1.1.13 of the indi-sx-ccd driver. Interestingly, the Y Pixel Size is reported incorrectly as 3.02 microns, not 6.04 as the X Pixel Size is, but the other parameters seem OK.
Hi all, I have had an SX26C camera for several years, but rarely used it. I tried it a couple of days ago, as I was hoping to use it with a new telescope and now use the INDI ecosystem, which works very well with my SX694/Ultrastar combo.
When I tried taking some short test frames using the INDI driver, the server recognised the camera (as an SXVR-M26) but the resulting FITS is a strange mess. I've attached a 2x2 binned version to save space but the 1x1 is very similar. The mount was guiding, even though the few stars are smeared, and the overall picture looks rather modernist - just not what I want! I've confirmed that the camera works under ASCOM and with a test program from Starlight Xpress. Terry Platt, the camera designer, suggests that the problem is that the M26C series has an unusual CCD structure, and so only a few imaging programs can decode it successfully.
Building a driver to read it is probably beyond my coding skills, but I was wondering if anyone has any other suggestions? I realise that the SX26 is a rare beast and not easy to use - hence why mine has lived on the shelf. It may be that trying to use it under INDI is a non starter but I'm willing to have a go to see if I can get something from my initial investment.
Hi all, I am trying to use INDI/astroberry with an SX694 camera. It works well when I am taking long exposures, but does not work when taking exposures of about one second or less (eg flats or bias). The images have a consistent pattern of blotches, that are not related to the flats panel I'm using as a target. A jpg of the results is attached.
