Nope, it's waiting for someone to test it. You must enable DEBUG LOGGING to a file (see my signature) _before_ you connect. Whether it works or not, send the INDI driver log.

How to Submit Logs when you have problems?

DSUSB 3 months 2 weeks ago #18421

I have the same problem with my Nikon and DSUSB... My shutter is limited to 30 secs and Ekos doesn't recognize the Shoestring device... Is there any update in that direction? Thanks for your effort in the name of all DSUSB users...

The INDI Nikon driver is almost empty, you need to enable debug logging to a file before you connect, then CONNECT and then send the logs. If you don't know how to do this, make your camera + DCUSB over SSH or TeamViewer and I'll check it out.

How to Submit Logs when you have problems?

I got my DSUSB today and tested it with my daughter's Windows 10 machine, and it successfully exposed for 40 seconds. (gphoto can only go to 30 seconds, the slowest pre-programmed shutter speed.)

In my tests with INDI, the shutter was not triggered. The only file I have is the indi_nikon_ccd log file (attached). I'm on IRC with this user name if you would like to contact me in real time.

2nd try with full debugging attached. (note mapped to /dev/dsusb)

3rd try with DSUSB as shutter control attached.

With the 30s exposure issue sorted for indi_nikon_ccd, I tied another test with DSUSB. The shutter never fired. The log file is attached,

Using the updated files on github, I was able to capture as follows, 1 @ 40s, 3 @ 40s and 3 @120s. Log file is attached.

Interestingly, alternate files were debayered fits files. I ran an additional test with 10 x 40s exposures, prefixed Ten_DSUB_Test. In the attached screenshot, the 32.5MB files are gray (need debayering) and the 48.3 MB files are already debayered (open as RGB in PixInsight).

I have also attached the indi_nikon_ccd log of this capture session.

So can you state that the DSUSB will work with INDI?, I'm poised to get one for my D7000 but waiting until I know it works.

Regards

Yes, DSUSB is working with the version that's in the Git repository. I don't know when it will be in the PPA. The issue I had on bayered/debayered files should not be a problem if the images are saved to the camera's SD card in NEF format.

From the log, it downloads two images. First is NEF, then after the next exposure, it downloads JPG of the former exposure. I think maybe in your settings you set it to downloads both RAW+JPG? This is not supported in the driver, you must choose one of them at a time.

I accidentally set that mode via one of the Windows software that I used to test my DSUSB and forgot to reset it to RAW only :-(. I noticed this setting before I saw your reply.

After resetting to RAW only, I performed additional tests, and all images came out as bayered (gray in PixInsight). However, the first image in the sequence queue was larger than the subsequent ones (see screenshot). The FITS headers say the first file is 4948x3280 and the subsequent files are 4928x3264. I have repeated the test and get the same results.

I can confirm that for the DSUSB to work, the target needs to be the SD card.
