Hello,

i used ekos and phd2 for a few month with an odroid c2 without any issues. Recently i set up a new installation on an odroid n2+. But i have an issue with phd2 and my guding camera. Connect to the camera is working well, but if i start looping exposures, only the first one gets displayed in the phd2 window, then the phd2 window does not show any more frames. Phd2 does not show any errors like e.g. disconnected camera. In the status line i can only read "no star selected" after the first exposure is done.

If i use the guider in ekos, everything works fine. I have testet other cables, usb ports, but nothing seems to help fixing the issue.

Could anyone please help?

Hi there,

A few months ago I started with astrophotography and Ekos/Indi and wanted to update now. But after the update, as well as with reinstallation I get from time to time an error in the Indi log. Can someone help me and tell me what I can do to fix this? I use an Odroid C2, HEQ5 Pro and Canon 2000D. Sometimes it happens, when starting indi, somteimes, when mount is tracking. Happens with 3.5.9 (Ubuntu 18.04 LTS) and 3.6.0 (Ubuntu 20.04 LTS). The error is the following:

[2022-08-17T10:48:40.131 CEST INFO ][           org.kde.kstars.indi] - EQMod Mount :  "[WARNING] dispatch_command() : serial port read failed for 200ms (1 retries), verify mount link. "

With 3.5.8 all is fine, no errors.

Many thanks in advance
