Just stumpled over this issue. Update worked for me :-)

Thank you!

Hello Hy,
yes I mean the Observatory Tab in Ekos ;-) Please see the attached pictures.



I'm not very experienced with compiling but perhaps with your assistance it may work. So lets give it a try. I'm using both astroberry and Stellar Mate, both on Raspi 4B with 4GB.

Please tell me, if I have to install things to start compiling, also the git commands would be very helpful for me.

Am I right that (if all works) I would see the temperature of MBox in the analyze tab? Would it be possible to get also the values of humidity, air pressure and dew point to the analyze tab (or at least save them in the log file)? But this would be a nice to have if it is not difficult. If its only temperature it would be very fine too...

Hi Ken,
thank you for your reply. Building from source was also an approach I thought of ;-) but I didn't found the sources in github.com/indilib/indi (can aou tell me were the source is for the future?) and I'm also not so familiar with compiling.
But I found yesterday, that at least in Astroberry there is the driver "Astroberry relays" (github.com/rkaczorek/astroberry-diy) which is I think quite the same. The control of my relais worked with that :-)

I also use Stellarmate, but I didnt had the chance to check that in Stellarmate 1.6.1 (Kstars 3.5.6), as far as I remember, with the Stellarmate Version 1.6.0 (Kstars 3.5.5) it worked with the indi-rpi-gpio.

Just some mor information on the errors during the try of installation of indi-rpi-gpio:

Hi all,
I'm currently testing some GPIO tasks to switch on and off things. I saw, that there was an gpio driver in INDI indilib.org/raspberry-pi/raspberry-pi-gpio-control.html where it was possible to switch several GPIO pins.

I set up a new Astroberry with the new 2.0.4 and tried to install the indi-rpi-gpio, since it was not installed from scratch.

Outcome was, that it is not possible to install the GPIO driver sinde there is a conflict with the pigpiod (it seem that there is a new one installed and the indi-rpi-gpio needs an older one)

Can somebody help here? Thank you.

Best regards

Jürgen

Hi all,
I just got an astromi.ch MBox to get temperature, barometric, humidity and dew point data. It works fine so far and I can read the values in the dome tab.

But in the analyze tab I can not see even the temperature. There are no values to see. I'm working with simulators and the mbox in the profile editor in aux2 or weather, nothing worked...

How can I get at least the temperatuer of the Mbox shown in the graph of the analyzer tab?

Best regards

Hi Mike,
as far as I can say and understood the issue, it was a "bug" in kstars. It should be solved since version 3.5.6. Due to continuousliy bad weather I couldnt check it till now :-(

What version of kstars do you use?

Best regards

The first two rows are the RA/DEC coordinates of the target. The last two rows are the values how far I'm off the target. The first two rows should not change when I dont change the target. If you look at the first three lines: the RA/DEC rows dont change since I dont changed the target. The plate solving was succesfull. In the fourth line the RA/DEC changed but I dont changed the target. It is still PGC9031, as you can see in row number three.

If the coordinates in the first two rows were frame center coordinates they would have changed in the first three lines (and also form line four to line five), but they didnt. So these are target coordinates.

Plate solving should center the object I want. I want to center NGC891 (=PGC9031). Until line 3 NGC891 has the coordinates RA02:23:57 DEC42:26:45. In line 4 they changed to RA02:22:57 DEC42:30:17.

I dont think that NGC891 jumped to the new coordinates...

If you look on the delta in line 4 you see that the NGC891 was already nearly centered before. So why are the coordinates changed for NGC891????

Nobody an idea why the coordinates of NGC891 where changed from RA02:23:57 DEC42:26:45 to RA02:22:57 DEC42:30:17?

Hello,
this night I did some tests with my image train. To do this I spotted on NGC891 with my C9+Reducer (f=1485mm).

The first plate solving worked very well, NGC891 was centered in the picture. I took some photos (approx 2 hours) and then did an autofocus. After that I did another platesolving. BUT: the coordinates had changed!!! I realized that after watching the first picture after that plate solving, the galaxy was not centered...

 

 

To solve this issue I had to go to kstars and klick on NGC891 - Details - Center in Telescope. After doing so, the plate solving used the right coordinates and centerd the galaxy. I had this problem already rarely in the past. What is wrong???

Ok, sounds good. So I start to save money for the EQ8 ;-) Hoping it will be available next year...
