Hi,

I recently recived QHY163 for testing (thanks QHY!). It works with Windows native drivers and ASCOM, but not with INDI. I checked QHY SDK and INDI sources and it looks like firmware for the camera is included but not used. Did anyone try running QHY163 with INDI with some success? Any hints appreciated.

Cheers,
milosz

Well why don't you give it a try and load the firmware by modifying the 85-qhy.rules file and see if that works?

Do you think the rest of the code will work? I guess loading firmware is not the last step. I contacted QHY about that. The camera is under beta testing so I can't disclose bugs openly if sth bad happens. Let's see what QHY says. I really don't want to brick the camera :)

Looks like .img files that are shipped for new (3rd gen) QHY cameras are much bigger than .hex files that are used with older ones. So I don't think the new cameras use the same Cypress chip for USB communication. Let's wait what QHY replies.

Right, check with QHY better than breaking the camera.
