I have had this happen on occasion, and have been able to work around it by changing the pulse parameters. I have a setting now that seems to calibrate every time. Try increasing the max pulse if you get the error again.

HelgeMK wrote: Just wanted to share the following experience gathered this evening. As reported before, I started using an outdoor router to run "outside" Ekos-client on the laptop, with the raspberry pi to host the indisevers (eqmod, asi zwo ccd and asi zwo guide cam, moonlite / arduino focuser). In principle, it seems to work well, a SIM card is not required to operate within the network (consisting of laptop and raspberry).

I experienced the issue with "looping exposure", when attempting to take a picture with the ASI071 first time, i.e. the camera fails to take an exposure / download the picture and continously repeats. It turned out that the issue occured for the following reason: In the profile editor I was selecting both for the "CCD" and the "Guider" the ASI ZWO driver (as I am running the ASI071 and the ASI120 that seems logical to me). When selecting only once the ASI ZWO driver, for example for the CCD, everything works fine!

What has been working really well is running the solver option "remote" (instead of via the internet), by chosing "Astrometry" as auxillary device in the profile editor, which I find amazing.

One thing where I did not manage to produce a positive result yet is the internal guider, where the calibration got aborted after 30 attempts, see screenshot. As per the autogenerate comments, something might be wrong with the eqmod-settings, but I have no idea where the error could be (see screenshot).

I would be grateful if someone could help .

Not sure if, and how to retrieve the Ekos log. I tried the link that leads to the tutorial, but cannot start the video (looks like some sort of format issue).

Maybe I have to wait for the next clear sky-evening (wheather forcast is not promising). Was actually wondering if an astro planetarium toy would be useful for testing indoor?

Dear Jasem,

Just to follow up on the problem with the internal guider aborting after 30 attempts: I had a chance to try again, but shame on me, I failed creating a log file, just the screenshot from the client with the log entries. There (see attached screenshot), an error was reported, i.e. failed transform telescope to celestial. I do not really know what it means, but possibly the cause?

Thanks in advance for kind support!

Helge

Dear Jasem,

Wheather forcast is not very promising, so I was wondering if the debugging data captured in the screenshot already helps finding detecting root-cause?

Best, Helge

Screenshot not enough, log is needed. I wouldn't subframe as well it tends to have more issues.. but again log will determine.
