TOPIC: FITS viewer opens each time PHD Guiding is taking a picture

FITS viewer opens each time PHD Guiding is taking a picture 2 months 3 weeks ago #19025

Hello,
I am using kstars/ekos (under xubuntu) + INDI web manager on a RPi.
I am guiding using PHD2.

I have the option "receive external guide frames" set to false.
But sometimes, the FITS viewer starts popping up every sec with the guider image.
In the Summary panel, the main camera picture is not shown anymore, and the guider image is displayed instead.

It is then of course not usable, and I need to restart kstars to get things back to normal.

Is there something I am doing wrong?
Is there a glitch somewhere?

Thank you!
Regards,
Florian

When it first connects to PHD2, ALL cameras reception is disabled in KStars until you capture an image then image reception is enabled again for that particular camera. So for the guide camera, do not capture any frames in Ekos and you shouldn't receive any when PHD2 captures from it.

Hello,

Indeed, I used the Focus module on the Guide camera.
I guess that if I avoid doing such, and perform the focusing on PHD2 instead, it won't happen again. :cheer:

Thanks!

Hi,

I tried guiding with phd2, experiencing the same issue, with pictures coming up continuously on the Fits Viewer. I restarted KStars and avoided using a cam in Ekos prior to start up phd2. Issue still occurred.

I checked, the box "receiving external frames" was not checked.

@ Florian, did you have a chance retrying?

Best, Helge

Helge, you're using 2.8.2?

So maybe there should be an easy way to block this. It can be done from INDI Control Panel, but I guess that is not obvious for most users. I thought of adding "block" button to FITSViewer but then I don't want to clutter the interface. Might add a separate "Block Stream" button.

or make Guide combo selectable when in remote guiding and when you select any camera there, it blocks it. I guess that's simple enough.

I added a way in the Guide module now to disable blob from CCD by selected them from the list. This way you can still use it initially in KStars and then disable it later.

Dear Jasem,

...now I have implemented KSTARS 2.8.2. Sorry, I shoud have checked before.

The new "way in the Guide module" that you were adding - will that be available in a future KSTARS (e.g. 2.8.3) release or via updating of the indi library?

Thank you once again,

Helge

Hello,
During the last sessions, the FITS viewer has not opened, as soon as Ekos was connected to PHD2.
Thank you ! :)
