TOPIC: DSI PRO 2 capture tutorial.

DSI PRO 2 capture tutorial. 2 months 2 weeks ago #19307

Greetings,
Is there a specific tutorial for capturing from a DSI PRO 2 in Ekos on Ubuntu 16.04?....
I have the drivers and Kstars bleeding installed....
I could get an image working the other night in the focuser in Ekos....
From there i was not really able to figure out the steps to make things happen....
Thanks for any info....

You just use Capture module (Camera Icon) to capture, what's the problem?

Hi Jasem,
Kstars was getting this error and crashing with my DSI PRO....
"error-2017-09-11T23:38:25: Unable to find DSI. Has the firmware been loaded? "
This was happening when i would go "Kstars" - "Tools" - "Devices" - "Device Manager" to connect to my DSI PRO....
I finally realized i need to connect in a particular way, and then things were good....
I got it to work this way:
Unplug the DSI .
Plug in the DSI.
Started Kstars.
Tools-then Ekos.
Profiles-(select)My DSI PRO.
Start Indi(it connects and finds my DSI).
Go to"Focuser"tab.
Under CCD it now has "Meade Deep Sky Imager".
Click "Framing" and i now get short exposures going so i may focus.
Focus and then go to "CCD" tab.
Click"Preview" and now i get a "Fits" image.

This weekend i will give it a solid try....
Thanks....

Even in Device Manager, you should be able to use your camera normally (Not with Ekos, but basic control should be available). If you can get me the backtrace for that crash, that would be great.

Hi Jasem,
I was able to save the errors in image form....It would not let me save just the text when this happened....
Thank you....
