Euripides created a new topic ' Omegon Camera veTEC 533 C Color' in the forum. 4 weeks ago

Hello!

I've seen this camera Omegon Camera veTEC 533 C Color and as far as I can understand is the same as the ASI 533 (?).

Does anyone has any more info about this (used it)? Is it possible to be already compatible with Ekos (due to the same sensor - if that is correct of course) ?

Yes, the true power of StellarSolver is that it can blindly solve very very fast compared to the old methods. if you do a blind solve, another words a solve without using the Scale or Position to inform the solve, then it can solve no matter which way the camera is pointing in the sky or what the scale of the telescope happens to be. In the past, a blind solve would have taken a very very long time, but with this new solver I have worked on, it can do it in a mere fraction of that time. Now, that being said, I wouldn't recommend blind solving all the time. In order to blind solve, the computer must do a lot of work and takes a lot more energy, it also has to start a bunch of threads and of course there is then an increased risk of some kind of issue happening, like using up all the ram of a small raspberry pi (if that is what you are doing the plate solving on). So I wouldn't recommend plate solving with those options turned off unless it is necessary. But when it is, it will be much better than before I think.



Tried it last night out on the field and I had a successful session.

After PA, turned on my RPI and while I was at Polaris, gone for a blind plate solve. Success!
Then I've framed my target and again plate solve worked just fine.

All of the above, without using the scale and position options checked. So probably I have just to change a bit my usual session habits :-)

Well if this is your plan, there is a way to work with that. As I think I mentioned before, KStars has an option that lets you get the location FROM the mount instead of sending it TO the mount when you connect. That might be more what you want then.


Hmm I am little bit confused about that and how will help me. Aren't those infos about my location? Cause I do not have issues with that, my RPI has an active internet connection, so location and time are updated all the time. In addition to that, I am not pretty sure that the Mount updates KStar is useful for SkyGuiderPro, cause it hasn't got a GPS.

Could you take a look at Preferences-->Appearance Settings-->Defaults tab? I think there should be some settings for the display.

I was about to say yes no problem, just use "load and slew", turn off "use position" and be sure to not use ASTAP because it doesn't do as well as the others with blind solving. BUT, then I just tried it and I think I found a bug in KStars. It just went ahead and used the information in the FITS header again even though I unchecked use position. I had thought we had set up "load and slew" to work the same way as the "Capture and Solve" feature. Unchecking the "use position" button worked perfectly in "capture and solve" I just tested that too to make sure, but apparently it ignored it when using "load and slew". I am sorry if I led you astray on that one, that is a bug I think. I will ask if somebody changed that behavior for some reason or if I did it wrong in the first place. I think there should be a way to tell it to ignore the FITS Header information, even if it is not the same setting. I will ask. We should be able to resolve this quickly.


Thankfully I was doing exactly the same, so at least I was looking to the correct direction. In addition to that, I can see that there is no way just to load an image to plate solve and then do nothing. I do know that the option "Nothing" works on "Capture and solve" (at least it was working, I used it all the time, cause I use the SGP, so no GOTO function).


I've edited the header and removed those infos. Only then I think that is working. I say I think, cause I do not see a solution either in the panel, or at the KStars map, but I can see the solved successfully into the log file.

But anyways, that doesn't really affect the issues you were reporting before. The main issue you had in the field was that your telescope, the driver, and KStars thought your telescope was pointing at Polaris when you were actually pointing at M45. So when you tried to solve with the "use position" option checked, it caused all solvers to fail. I think the reason for this is probably that you set up your telescope, sent it to M45 and then you turned on KStars/INDI with the options selected that sent the computer information to the telescope which told the telescope it was pointing at Polaris again. My recommendation is to turn on KStars/INDI while setting up your gear and THEN to slew to M45 so that they both know they are pointing at that..


So if I leave both options unchecked, I will be able to plate solve, no matter where my camera is pointing?

I usually power up my RPI after PA and framing my target, cause I find it easier to frame through the camera's LCD(instead using my iPad). But now, probably you will think "ok so why you do not just power up RPI and start Ekos? This is not an issue to your workflow". Unfortunately there are many times that my camera is unable to use, if I press a button or touch the LCD display of my camera, while it is connected to Ekos & without even capturing. I have to shutdown the system and restart. This is something I am still trying to find out...

I have finally given up on internal guiding and switched to PHD2 which is working but not perfectly. I have not been able to connect the PHD2 program running on SM+ with the guiding tab on Ekos. Thanks for your suggestion on dithering. Will definitely give that a go. Hope that will smooth out the erratic corrections.


Have you changed the guide selection to PHD2 in your profile, before running it?

Ok let me one moment to step back and ask, so we could avoid further confusion : I have those M45 subs with the wrong fits header.
I know that I can solve them successfully on the Astrometry website, already done that.
I am right now into my RPI, with Ekos, indoors due to rain. Is it possible just to load them to Ekos and plate solve them? If yes, how?

If I can recall correctly I switch on the RPI after I slew (yes not pushing) to the target, I am already polar aligned so I proceed with the PHD2 and then start my Ekos sequence.

Tried with unchecked both, no luck :-(

My steps are quite usual, just PA and then "slew" (manually of course) to my target.

I've tried all the available solver combinations but none of them work. I have all the required index files (and even more).

Right now I can see that even the individual ASTAP installation can't solve the image (on my RPI4 and my Mac)

I've made those changes too, but unfortunately no, the issue still remains :-( I can't get it solved even on a simulator profile. I have just the same errors.

And to be honest I can't understand how those infos are written into the header - so I could change them. Maybe it is something fundamental on my profile that I do not know, cause till the previous version, everything was working properly.

And my setup is pretty simple : SkyGuider Pro, DSLR, ZWO.
My profile:
Mount = iOptron SkyGuiderPro (tried with Telescope Simulator too)
CCD: Canon DSLR
Guider: ZWO CCD


PS. Yes, it was my first and only session that night.
