Hi geehael and xthestreams,

While at the topic about guiding there was a really good way to get superb guiding at least for my EQ8 Pro mount and a SX cam, I'm not sure why the option "Rapid Guide" is grayed out since long time now but it was a great way to get rid of the latency compared to the usual way getting the image or part of the image transferred to the client and displaying it.

The only drawback with Rapid Guide was the SX driver made the choice of what star to guide on, but if you had a white pixel it sometimes tried to guide on that, but after a number of retries it got a real star and it worked great.

I've never used any other cams but the SX and not sure if the SX driver is the only one that could use that option ??
Anyway, I miss that and would love to get it back even if the PPEC works really well.

Sorry about my spelling but watching '90 day fiancé' messes me up :)

Hi,

When creating a profile you can find "Pyxis" in the "Aux" menu.

In the picture it looks like the module 8822bu.ko was build ?? if you find the file you can try : sudo insmod path/to/module/8822bu.ko
or if the file is in the current directory then use : sudo insmod ./8820bu.ko just to see what happens.

Hi,

I've been playing with wx and python some time ago and used this to get transparency, maybe useful for you ?

#!/usr/bin/python

import wx

transp = 128
radie = 80
cross = True

class SketchFrame(wx.Frame):
    def __init__(self, parent):

        wx.Frame.__init__(self, None, -1, "Bulls eye", size=(400, 400))

        #panel = wx.Panel(self, wx.ID_ANY)
        #btn = wx.Button(panel, label="OK")

        self.SetTransparent(transp)

        self.Buffer = None
        #self.SetFocus()

I tried the one Ihoujin wrote in indilib.org/forum/general/6562-driver-fo...r.html?start=0#50498
I didn't search for any other drivers to try but if you have any suggestions let me know.

Great, so can you try install the kernel headers with the command : sudo apt install raspberrypi-kernel-headers
This is something I found in the RPi forum so I'm not sure about that, I'll also try when I get home and have access to my Pi.

Hi,

Interesting stuff.. now I even understand why the timesync to hwclock was working sometimes when shutting down the RPi but not at bootup.
I guess all that could be done with the raspi-config script using options to choose fake-hwclock or a RTC-module.

Nice work!
