I encountered issues with an Orion Starshoot AutoGuider where I could not take images after an aborted capture. Aborted capture includes these scenarios: Cancelling an image, stopping a loop of exposure, stopping autoguiding.
The Starshoot Autoguider works with the QHY CCD driver. It will report [ERROR] GetQHYCCDSingleFrame error (-1) when the problem arises.
I have repeated the issue to produce the following log as logs from my night out are quite large.

Has anyone with this guide camera seen this before? What can be done about it?

I have seen that happen before with a StarShoot. It is pretty annoying. My solution was to just restart the qhy driver if the issue happens.

I am planning to experiment with one in the near future though, so I can try to see what the problem is if I can reliably reproduce it.

Thanks,

Rob

I have a friend who might loan one to me next week if I remember to ask him.

Thank you. I should have included that I could only recover the driver by restarting the all of INDI, not just the one driver.

Unfortunately, I asked my friend today and he just told me he sold the camera due to the issues with it and got a ZWO. So I will try asking around more.

As we have not come to a resolution if this issue, I have taken some additional logs that might help.
The log will show:
  1. a successfully completed 1 second preview exposure
  2. an aborted 10 second preview exposure
  3. a failed 10 second preview exposure
  4. 2 further exposure attempts
