Apologies Hades - yes, you're absolutely right. There should be a change when the camera is uncovered. Out of interest what capture software are you using?
Might be good to add some more info, like your telescope and what software you are using.
It took me 3-4 days to work out setting the correct focus distance, exposure and gain to get a picture.
Actually I found trying to set things up during the day time was a bit easier.
Try focusing on a far away object, like a TV aerial or tree. Then very gently adjust exposure and gain.
Hey Kurt glad to hear you've found some solutions. I think the mini attached to the mount is genius. I'm sure it's possible for the mount manufacturers to put the connections in the lower alt/azi part of the mount. Time will tell.
Early part of my journey but finding it frustrating to get to grips with the difference between visual and photo astronomy..
Kubuntu sounds really interesting.
I use Opencore to run osx on a self build.
Many thanks for the update on this Collin. I'm not bad at making tea and coffee. Developing though? Completely inexperienced.
Hi Kurt - many thanks for the reply. Much appreciated. Presently I have 'bodged' a half way fix, by using Parallels running Windows running Sharpcap. But of course this doesn't provide guiding support.
I'm still struggling to get the SVbony working in Ubuntu with Kstars..
Hi Kurt, did you manage to find a solution to this? I am having the same problem and keep going round in circles.
This is a link to the driver
Here is a long thread about the driver development
If anybody could offer some suggestions on how to compile this on osx and add it to Kstars that would be super.
Can anybody tell me if the SVBONY 305 driver can work on osx?
I'm trying to use the SVBONY 305 with KSTARS on mac osx 10.15.17 .
When I select it in EKOS and try to connect I get this message:Driver indi_sv305_ccd was not found on the system. Please make sure the package that provides the 'indi_sv305_ccd' binary is installed.
I've been going around in circles a bit.
If anybody could provide some pointers or advice. I'd be very grateful.
