Hello Jerry,

I just didn't know what to do next and wrapped the SSD with the usb data cable in aluminium foil. It now looks like a Fisch prepared for BBQ.
And what happened..... You are right. Tha Ap Astroberry came back and I was able to log in! Thank you very much for that tip, but I am really confused that this problem isn't coming up so often.
Nevertheless now I can finally implement it in our RC with eq-8 at the club site.
Will test it with a small layer of aluminium foil between the SSD and the rpi. I hope that will be enough.



I have a new lead...
I tested the raspberry pi with a raspberian on a SD card, everything works. When I switch the raspberian to a SSD, I get problems with the WiFi. When I put the SSD in the lower usb 3 port. No WiFi works. When I put it in the upper usb3 port, raspberry can find some WiFi AP. But when it should connect, it doesn't work.
So I startet to search for that kind of problem and it seems to be a power problem. I have the official raspberry power supply. (5,1V 3A)

So, next I will try a astroberry on a SD card and test if everything is working.
In the end I want the SSD for better performance.
Does someone have an advice? Maybe a powered usb hub is necessary? Which can be recommended? How should I connect the stuff in the end?



Dear Radek,
Thank you for your answere, but I guess I couldn't make my point here. I didn't connect the RPI to the router over WLAN. I changed nothing on the system. The AP just won't show up.
Now I made a fresh new install of astroberry. Downloaded the new image and did the update && upgrade stuff. Even the first dialog where I had to set my keyboard and so on. But the AP is not showing up. I am attaching some pictures of the situation. At the moment the RPI is connected over Ethernet to the router.
I hope that this time I could made my point.


Hi guys,

I think I go crazy...
Last year I bought a RPi4 8GB. I got a SD Card with Astroberry and everything worked fine.
Now I got a SSD and downloaded the actual astroberry image from the site. Wrote that image to the SSD and powered on the astroberry.
Everything seems to work fine. The RPI is connected via Ethernet cable to the network and I make updates over SSH..
When I am done, I pull out the ethernet cable and then the WiFi won't work. I can't connect to the astroberry WiFi AP anymore. When I plug back the ethernet cable, I can connect to the astroberry AP.
I didn't changed anything to the WiFi settings. During my attend to solve the problem on my own I changed the priority's value of the connections but that didn't work.

I hope I can upload some pictures to show a bit more of the problem.

Thank you.. to everyone who might help...



Hi all & everyone!

First post yey :)!!!

We currently have the same problem. In terms of upgrading our observatory, we are just started to deal with all the Kstars/ekos/indi stuff.
The hardware for the tests, are for example, an Fuji X-T3, a raspberry pi (astroberry) and a laptop with MS Win and Kstars.
After fiddling out that the X-T3 has to be set to USB-Tethering in its menue we can take preview images via ekos.
But before the preview is prompted, we get the Error that it is the wrong bayern pattern "GGGG". Is there a troubleshooting for it? I will try to change the FITS option to RAW, like you did timopro.

Hi all & everyone,

First post, yey... :)

I have the same issue. We are using Kstars on Windows and an Raspi with the Kstars/ekos system.
We are currently testing the hardware how it works and just fiddling into all the stuff.
Currently we are testing it with a Fuji X-T3. After finally fiddling out how the Camera can be switched to Tethering mode. After that it was possible to not just connect to the camera but also make a preview picture. But then a error came up. Sorry, that I donĀ“t have the exact phrase at the moment but it was like "GGGG - wrong bayernpattern". I have read in another Thread that the raspberry is not yet able to handl X-Trans Chips.


After the Error-Prompt wer get a preview, but it is only a gray horizontal line.

We are interested in the problem too.
