I have recently received an usb st4 camera 'RisingTech 'as gift ( fr.aliexpress.com/store/product/USB2-0-L...4.8147860.0.0.MtgZnx ).

I extract these informations;

GCMOS01200KPB ANCHOR
USB device found, idVendor=0547, idProduct=b133
us 001 Device 035: ID 0547:b133 Anchor Chips, Inc
it works with windows and ascom (camera ans st4) but i prefer Linus and INDI!!

Somebody knows it? with indi or else in linux and particularly with Raspberry pi3?

I guess maybe you can try it with the V4L2 CCD driver and see if it works there.

Ok from quick google seems some Anchor chips are supported by Video4Linux but if it is not detected as such then I'm afraid there is nothing we can do about it.

I too have this camera,
I don't think it supports V4L2 standards.

www.touptek.com/product/showproduct.php?lang=en&id=284

The original manufacturer does provide a Native C/C++/C# sdk, for interfacing with other applications.
Perhaps someone can write an INDI driver for this.

@JF, @sk_vishwanath, could you provide what 'dmesg' logs out when you plug the camera in? Unplug the camera, execute 'dmesg -dw' in a terminal, wait for output to stabilize, plug the camera and provide the lines which appear at that moment.

Hey Eric,
Here are the dmesg logs..

Thanks.

Thanks. There's no Linux driver managing that manufacturer/product pair unfortunately. But this seems to be an Anchor/Cypress USB chip, so perhaps fiddling with udev and IDs might make it at least recognized. But communicating with the USB chip is one thing, talking with the camera is another.

If the Touptek sdk (not clear, is it related to the OP?) provides a command line tool to configure and recover a frame, it might be interesting to code an INDI CCD driver able to execute those calls. We already have that need expressed for raspistill for instance.

@knro, I'm sure you already thought of this, any advice?

I found some more resources on this camera, not sure if applicable to Linux systems, but there seems to be a Viewer wrapper written in Python
github.com/NMGRL/toupcam/blob/master/docs.md

And also a oacapture interface library.
github.com/openastroproject/libtoupcam-pkg

I tried installing oacapture with libtoupcam_1.6.5660-1_amd64.deb, but still couldn't get this camera detected.

I guess this camera is missing the fundamental hardware drivers in Linux (Ubuntu 16.04 LTS).

Hi... I have also this camera....

It works with Altair GPCAM drivers ToupCam drivers and with original Rising Tech drivers

Did you get it work with INDI?

No luck with Linux (Ubuntu), No drivers yet
Those drivers are only for Windows.

Since this camera supports Ascom drivers, Might show up as Ascom compatible camera in Windows version of INDI.
Cannot confirm though, as I don't have windows installation.
