I control my DSLR D7000 with my Macbook
My macbook is at home
My telescope outside.
I use a Belkin Home Base F5L049ea to connect SUB over IP my devices (DSLR + Mount)
I telescope is a Celestron C8 AS-GT.
I tried to used Ekos to capture :
- it works when DSLR is directly connected on USB of my Mac.
But it doesn’t work when I used my BELKIN USB over IP.
I tried with Smart Shooter 4 (in Trial). It works well.
By the way, Ekos works fine to control my Celestron C8 AS-GT mount.

I don’t know why it is not working on Ekos.
Do you use USB over IP with DSLR ? do you have to choose a special configuration for DSLR when using a device USB over IP between computer and DSLR ?

Hi,
I used to use on PC Windows, Camera Control for Nikon to capture from my DSLR Nikon D7000, but with a Belkin Home Base F5L049ea USB over IP device to transmit picture between.
So, I can stay at home on my computer and my telescope is outside.

Now, I have a MacBook Pro.
So I tried with Smart Shooter 4. It is working but it is expensive 70$ ! (working with USB over IP or direct USB)
So I wanted to use Ekos with INDI to control my Nikon DSLR, but it is not detected when I used USB over IP...
It works only if I connect directly on Mac USB connector.

By the way, Ekos works fine to control my Celestron C8 AS-GT mount with USB over IP...

Do you know what to do to solve my problem ?
Do you use USB over IP ?
