TOPIC: Joystick input stops tracking

Joystick input stops tracking 1 month 1 week ago #26048

I setup a raspberry pi with Raspbian Stretch. I enabled the joystick control and I’m able to move the mount with the joystick, but when I do tracking stops. Is tracking supposed to stop or resume automatically?

Using Astroberry image of Unbutu Mate everything works fine.

Along the same lines, I would like to use a joystick, or just the arrows on the keyboard, either way, to make small adjustments to the mount so that I can align the images from my primary imaging camera and my guide camera better for plate solving and planetary imaging. In short, I find it difficult to center and keep the planet on the imaging chip, since tracking frequently disengages when I use the mount control tab, and with the very narrow field (only 5'x7') the planet has already wandered off the FOV again by the time I manage to reengage tracking.

Is there a simple way to do this? If I do not use a high power Barlow, I can just plate solve for the planet and that works fine, but with my 5x Barlow the final FL is 8000mm at f40. Perhaps not too surprisingly, the solver has real problems with that.

This is a bug. I happened to notice and bring up recently.

All the issues above for EQMod specifically?

Yes, in my case at least.

I just pushed a possible fix to GIT. Can you compile and test?

How can I tell if it’s EQMod or Ekos or INDI? I have the joystick control configured in Ekos. The game pad is connected to the raspberry pi running the INDI drivers.

I reloaded the SD card with Astroberry and joystick is working.
I also connected to it from my desktop from Kstars and joystick is working.

Ok guys. Let me first apologize. I was trying out 2 different things and ended up confusing them
1. Raspberry Pi running Stretch with INDI drivers installed
2.Raspberry Pi running Astroberry Unbutu Mate

The problem is on Stretch. With just the INDI drivers I can connect Kstars client to the pi INDI server. I can control the mount correctly, but joystick input stops the tracking.
This does not happen with Unbutu Mate Astroberry.

I appear to be having difficulty compiling the indi-eqmod driver.
