Klaus created a new topic ' MAX_EXP_RETRIES does not work in indi_asi_ccd' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

As I still have issues getting images from my ASI120MM when used together with EQMod I took a look into the code of indi_asi_ccd.cpp. When requesting an image, lets say one second exposure time, the log is flooded with "ASIGetExposureStatus failed. Restarting exposure..." messages. From my point of view a counter inside ASICCD::getExposure() should prevent such a possibly infinite loop. The retry counter is initialized inside the function but the function is called anew when retrying to get an image. Thus the counter is reset to zero again and thus making it useless. I'm referring to stable PPA code. Agree? Disagree?

Today I switched from stable ppa to the nightly builds and run a quick check on a test machine. In this environment the cam gets images while EQMod being up too. This looks very promising and I'll take a closer look later in the day.

Thanks guys for your input. My first idea when facing the issue was that something is wrong with cam, but it turned out that the cam works correctly. It does not work when EQMod is up too. This means that somehow EQMod blocks indi_asi from downloading the image. So this is more an EQMod issue rather than an ASI issue.

Attached a new log with ASI and EQMod. Hope it helps.

AFAIK, Linux kernel version 4.x or newer need devices which comply 100% to the USB standards. Older linux kernels were a bit more sloppy in this regard. These old ZWO cams are somewhat incompatible now so that RAW16 does not work most of the times but RAW8 does.

Well, things become more complicate. When I use the ASI together with mount simulator the cam works correctly! If I use the cam together with EQMod I get no image as the cam loops forever. Any ideas?

Reflashing didn't help. Does anyone has this cam working with up to date software installation?

The cam has already been flashed (well, quite a while ago) and worked until some weeks ago. Yesterday I used it again and ... no image. I'll give a new flash a try. Perhaps the new SDK makes it necessary. Thanks.

My ASI 120MM does work on Windows and with PHD2's internal ZWO lib but it does no longer work in the INDI environment. Connection is ok but when trying to get an image I end up in an infinite loop. The SDK has been updated some days ago and I suspect that the malfunction is due to this change as the cam worked the time before. The installed indi-asi is 0.9~201808180712~ubuntu18.04.1. Logfile is attached. Any ideas?

Klaus replied to the topic 'Guiding won't start because calibration fails' in the forum. 1 month ago

According to http://www.avalon-instruments.com/support/13-troubleshooting/117-phd2-guide-suggested-parameters guider settings look different between tooth belt and worm gear driven mounts. I'm owning an Avalon mount but haven't had time to check these parameters as I'm terribly short of spare time. Nevertheless, in case you can't get the guider to calibrate you may give these parameters a try.

Rotation is 0 and "Lock to celestial pole" is unchecked. Checking it does not make a difference.

Here are two images of KStars and Fitsviewer. Updated KStars to most recent version today. As you can see theta 2 Tau is in the center and theta 1 is rotated 90 degrees counterclockwise. Simulator settings are the defaults by installation. I already uninstalled KStars, Indi and all config files I knew of but the rotation is still there.

I'm on KStars 2.9.5 facing a 90 degree left rotation when taking an image. I didn't find a way to prevent this rotation. Can someone confirm this behaviour? Is it a bug or simply user stupidity?

When I try
sudo apt-get update as I usually do, I get the following info:

E: Repository ' ppa.launchpad.net/mutlaqja/ppa/ubuntu artful InRelease' changed its 'Label' value from 'INDI' to 'INDI Stable Builds'
N: This must be accepted explicitly before updates for this repository can be applied. See apt-secure( 8 ) manpage for details.

Any ideas on this?

libsbig collides with libsbigudrv2. Therefore you must uninstall libsbigudv2 first and then install libsbig.
