TOPIC: MoonLite Focus Driver Issue

MoonLite Focus Driver Issue 5 months 5 days ago #16226

Hello,

When I connect the MoonLite focuser along with my AP1100, ASI 1600, ASI120MM-S, and Filter Wheel, I hit some strange condition where the focuser driver spams on and on about temperature, and prevents the focuser from operating correctly. Oddly enough I cannot repro with when my Celestron CGEM is connected along with the rest of the gear, only the AP1100.

If I load all the drivers with the AP1100 USB unplugged, connect everything but the 1100, then plug in the USB for the AP1100 and connect it in INDI, everything works just fine.

I can repro this issue on the Raspberry Pi as well as a Lenovo T420 running 16.04. Isolating the focuser to a different USB bus has no effect on the problem at all.

Any ideas?

Odd.. if they're on different ports then there should never be any crosstalk. Unless there is something else at play here. I'm not really sure.. but I added more TCIOFLUSH to the Moonlite driver.. but I doubt it will make a difference but give it a go.

yeah I expected it not to make a difference... so each one has a different /dev node? no udev rules that could cause issues? is this a new problem that just appeared now?

I am not using anything other than the out of the box INDI Drivers and KStars. The issue appeared because I just got the focuser, and this was the first time I used it with the AP mount.

This issue still persists and unfortunately I have had to fall back on my previous Windows solution of SGP/ASCOM until this gets worked out. Everything functions perfectly fine on Windows with the AP mount and the MoonLite focuser, so I am not really sure what the problem is under INDI.

The suggestion you made about the values being coordinates from the mount seems legit to me.

Does it matter if you start up eqmod as the first driver or the last driver from commandline ??

Problem was solved. Totally my fault. I thought I had the ports set right, and it looks like the MoonLite driver was connecting to the AP port, thus why it was getting bogus data.

Thanks Jasem for the TeamViewer session. :)
