Hello, Potto,
yes, the solution is completely outside of kstars, as you can see in the blog I connected the remote trigger contact of the 5d directly to a GPIO of the Raspi via cable and controlled it with the code (in the blog). To control it directly from the Raspi you need a resistor and a transistor, so it's not that easy.
take a look at that site:

meanwhile, i did solve the problem (not very elegant, i know) with a litte python script and direct controlling the remote shooting contact...:
#!/usr/bin/env python
from time import sleep
import RPi.GPIO as GPIO
import sys
bulb_text = input ("Belichtungszeit: "
bulb = int(bulb_text)
anzahl_text = input ("Anzahl: ")
anz = int(anzahl_text)
i = 0
b = 1
GPIO.setmode(GPIO.BCM)
GPIO.setwarnings(False)
GPIO.setup(25, GPIO.OUT)
while i<anz:
print ("Bild Nr.: ", i+1)
GPIO.output(25, True)
while b<bulb+1:
sys.stdout.write ("\r%i" " Sek." % b)
sys.stdout.flush()
sleep(1)
b = b+1
GPIO.output(25, False)
sleep(3)
b = 1
i = i+1

Hi, Jo, yes that works... first i deleted the scaling mark, but then recalculated and the solver did work. So in fact, your hint did its job thanks a lot!

ok folks, seems to work now, guess it was the wrong scaling, my fault... thanks again for your pation

Hi, that seemed to be the solution... so i changed the spec as you told me... but no solution, then i changed the Fits Header Length and diameter to the LX200 spec... no solution. Then i did erase the hole Header and schwups after 10 sevc i had a positiv solution. So anything in the header is mismatched. Kstars is working with J2020.4 coordinates and fits has J2000 data... may be? where to change the J2020 data?

oh, Hi just saw your comment, thanks... i placed a screenshot in that link... is it not enough?

Good Morning (here in the Eifel, Germany) here is a link to my Server, where i placed som fits work... i tried with offline. Perhaps you can "solve " the problem.
Sorry, no CR2 files (guess there was a problem to download it from cam with Kstars and Canon 5d classic)

Thanks at all Matthias

Hallo El Corazon... that seems to be the problem... with L-jpg it works. so i try the RAW as native... when sending the fits file dirctly through the web at astrometry.net it takes some 5 min. to solve...
(result can be seen at www.worldwidetelescope.org/webclient/?wt...47.03313&fov=0.40753 ) so it works. but takes too long. see you nxt week, because weather changed to rain...

HI, tried again and checked the FOV... using my LX200 8" and the Canon the fov reults in 61'x 41'... with jpg it works (after 35sec) and with FITS... no... i did install all astrometry indices 4203 -4219 at /usr/share/astrometry

in the meantime, i tried that attached jpeg and that worked... so coult it be that my loaded FITS with 32MB is too big? (It was one of the Lightframes)

Hi, All, tried to solve yesterday night with that fits file (now as jpeg) to solve the position. no chance... no solving. intalled the fits files for offline solving...

Hi, last night i shot the leo triplet... this is raw after DSS...

Hi stash,
thanks for help. but noise reduction was / is off. I guess Herrhausen is wright... no bulp at all . Si i do it with Yongnuo shutter control via 2,4 GHz... and gphoto2 pic download. it's abit old fashioned, but it works... next step is trying to cool the chip with a copper coldfinger and a peltier... may be some 15° under environment...
