Daniel DeSclafani created a new topic ' ASI2600MM and Rpi 4 - 4GB' in the forum. 4 days ago

Hi,

Just wanted to know what peoples experiences were with using the new 2600mm cameras and RPi. I ask because the file size is much bigger than what I am using now (183) and I want to make sure I will be able to use the 2600 with the Rpi still . Is it slow to download images or does it run just fine?

Thanks!

Hmm. Okay, I guess this is where I am lost. If I connect over the hotspot from my laptop then how would I still get the internet access/gps location? I am sorry if I am making this difficult, Im just trying to understand. It seems like a source somwehere has to have connection to the internet

Hi,

Very basic and simple question. I am wanting to go down to a dark site by me that will away from any internet access. So I am sure there is a basic answer ot this basic question, but I just do not know.
So, how would I get internet access on the RPI4 to make sure that the mount/rpi4 knows where it is? Do I need to buy a gps to connect to the rpi4?

I believe this is still trying ot be worked out. the current solution for the time being is to create multiple jobs in the scheduler for the same target and set it to force realignment on every job. This way it will constantly realign during the night. Not perfect but it works for now.

Daniel DeSclafani created a new topic ' Kstars/Ekos & WIndows 10' in the forum. 3 months ago

I have a friend who is interested in trying out kstars/ekos but the only issue is that he has a windows laptop. As far as I know I dont think INDI works on windows. If he were to use kstars/ekos then how would he do that? he already has ASCOM installed with the drivers, would he have to use that in some way?

Thank you!

I am having issues with the meridian flip. I m on the latest stable release and have had this issue happen every night so far.

Once a meridian flip is performed it looks like the solver captures and solves. After that nothing happens, it just says "flip complete" and it seems to be stuck right there with the loading icon going around.

I have not been able to really figure out what the issue is. Is there a setting that could be interfering with this?

I can pull logs tomorrow, I just restarted kstars/ekos to continue to capture.

Thanks
Deesk

Daniel DeSclafani created a new topic ' Save Job Profiles' in the forum. 5 months ago

Hi,

Simple idea/request here that I do not think is implemented. I understand this may be easier said than done.

As I start to use the scheduler more I find myself having to type in the coordinates every time I use it. I understand I can save the scheduler, however, I would want it to just save the target name and coordinates by itself. This way I can easily choose which target I want and then load my specific sequence as well. Just a small change but something to help speed up the process. I am usually out imaging the same target/coordinates multiple times per month and I keep having to save the coordinates elsewhere. Maybe this is already implemented. If so then I am sorry!

Thanks!

Couldn't you have the image load it into the fits viewer as a 2x2 bin essentially cutting the file size in half? I know this is almost the same thing as creating a jpeg, but just an idea if people want to keep the raw data in the fits viewer.
