Kedar Patankar created a new topic ' Mount Park position' in the forum. 12 months ago

Hi,

Here is a strange problem I am dealing with: my parking position has gotten set to Dec=89:57:00. I tried following the instructions on "purge data" under site management tab of INDI control panel, powering down everything, restarting, connecting everything etc. but no help The dec stays at 89:57:00. This causes parking/unparking make the mount rotate around NCP in tight arc, and then eventually slewing to wherever I want to go.

My setup is Astroberry on a Pi-4B working with an motorized scope running OnStep.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Hi,

Would it be a good idea to use a long zoom prosumer camera as guidescope/camera? I have a Panasonic FZ2500, which has almost 2" objective lens, 480mm focal at extreme tele end. Would it be a good idea to use it in full manual exposure/focusing mode as a guide camera?


Thanks
Kedar

Currently I use a sony alpha 5100 with audio track from shortwave timing stations to measure timing. Needless to say, this is cumbersome and hence my query.

Hi,

I am new to INDI and so please point me to RTFM if appropriate. Does INDI support time-stamping captured video with (ideally GPS derived) UT timestamps on each frame of the video? Also, what about audio that goes with the video? I am asking because I am trying to figure out a way to use INDI as a foundation for a rig that would be used for IOTA occultation observations that need millisecond accuracy in capturing the timing of these events.

Thanks
