TOPIC: Repeatable freezes in the alignment module

Repeatable freezes in the alignment module 2 months 1 week ago #27325

I had repeated freezes yesterday in the alignment module when I do the following:

1.) Track some target
2.) Successfully align the target
3.) Start the guiding
4.) Stop guiding
5.) Go back to alignment and try to capture and align again.

Then Ekos starts the alignment and freezes with the attached screen when trying to sync to the target destination

I can't reproduce this (under Linux at least).

I thought so. It seems to be a problem in the EQ-Mod driver. I see in the process viewer of Mac OS that the EQ-Mod-driver is at 100% on one of my CPU kernels then.

Should I attach some logs? It is easy to reproduce for me as it happens every time, I do these steps.

This is really getting frustrating. indi_eqmod_telecope keeps on freezing on my Mac. I have to kill the process as it won't respond anymore and start all over.

Additionally the indi_canon_ccd driver does not like multiple restarts, which is necessary after eqmod crashes. So I have to power off snd on the Canon over and over.

Juist wanted to try Scheduler for the first time, but unfortunately indi_eqmod_telecope crashed right at the start of the sequence. The process is at 100% of the CPU and does not react anymore.

I think I give up for tonight.

Try using GPhoto CCD instead. It is much more flexible.

I used EQMod driver today and had no issues, but again it was running on StellarMate and not a Mac. Actually, the Mac should be faster. Do you know when the CPU spikes to 100%? Any action that specifically trigger it? Starting guiding? start sequence?

It happens actually all over the place for me, about 6 times tonight.

Very often during alignment like in my first post with the screenshot, when it tries Syncing to RA.

I tried GPhoto today, it produces the same problems. I just connected and disconnected the camera a couple of times and after about 10 times, it can't connect anymore, reports error -10. I attached the log file. I had no other devices attached, just the canon.
