Same here using a Canon 550D DSLR. Even using 100mb ethernet cable (40m distance between switches) takes about 30 seconds to dowload the image.
I am using the same method, download only to server and sync after that. Without this, It has the same impact on internal guider too.

One last note, I generally find that 2x2 bin works better than 1x1. I does not hang so often.

Hi,

I had that problem too on RPi, it's usb bus it's a little sensible to some devices, even with a powered hub.
Now I am using the camera on x86_64 PC with an Atom Processor and I don't have those problems. The same happened with my SSAG.
I didn't use the cd at all. I only flashed the compatible firmware from ZWO website and started using it with INDI.
One other note, just verify if the camera is working at 8bit mode! Don't use 16bit it will mess up the images too.

Good to know it's already working. You are showing live video on attachments, live video does not work well with this cameras because
it's very demanding on USB2. Is it happening on still capture too? Leave USB bandwidth manually at the value "40". Do not leave it in auto mode.

Regards.

You can find it at ZWO page:

on the SDK & Upgrade tool tab, the is software for windows and linux.

I updated the all indi libraries, rebooted the system etc.but nothing helps.
Could it be that I need to flash the firmware of the cam before usage because it isn't a real ASI?

Attached logs of ekos en indi.

Hi can’t tell if that is the problem because the first thing I did before using it was to flash the compatible firmware on it. Also the RPi is a bit finicky with the ASI120 só I presume It will do the same with the T7M. I remember to use a powered hub with it, no directly connected. Have you tested on a regular PC to see if it works? Yesterday there was a problem with the ASI driver, today I updated again and it’s working fine.

Regards

Hi again.

well I am testing mine now with daylight, I have made a cable with two RJ11 6P6C plugs and using CAT5e networking cable. it's stiff, better for testing.
Then I splitted the cable in half and I am switching the cables on both sides so I can find wich direction is wich. I know that the GND is correct (PIN1)
so I have to find wich cables activate RA+ RA- DEC+ and DEC- . For that I am using the INDI ASI120 Driver tab, on the guide directions, activating
the specific direction and switching the cables. I centered the guide camera on a street STOP sign so I can see the directons easy.

Using a 10000ms pulse you can see the mount move, even with backlash. So far I have managed to find 3 directions (SOUTH, EAST and WEST).
It seems I have a problem with NORTH. The mount does not move in that direction, whatever cables I use.

I hope this makes sense to you!

Yes it's bad news but it maybe possible that it's only my camera that it's faulty. I can't return it because the return period expired (14 days).
Also I would like other user reports so we can see if that's the same with other cameras. Sure hope it's not. Anyway the camera works fine
with pulse guiding so it's not a total loss. Even so, a lot better than my SSAG!

nMAC replied to the topic 'Re:Datyson T7M' in the forum. 3 weeks ago

Just another update, I have made a dozen cables, none works with the specified pinouts. Have tried a lot of possible combinations, ST4 port just does not work.
If anyone, gets one working, please share your pinout. I have reverted to pulse guiding, at least for now.

No they didn’t, they just told me to split one side of the cable and apply their pinout.

Mine is working fine except for this:

Going to make a new cable soon to test the output. Please, if possible test your guiding too and give feedback.

Just for a reference for future users, I have contacted the seller and they gave me the ST4 Pinout of the T7M and its confirmed there are lines switched:

ASI120: white / black / red / green / yellow / blue
T7M: white / black / red / yellow / blue / green

So next step make the cable and test it.

Thanks for the reply, well I am trying to debug wich ones are switched on the cable and going to crimp a new one and leave the reference for
future users of this camera. Just wanted to know if anyone had this issue and see if it was my camera only problem.

I have received my T7M, it works as an ASI120MM with INDI but I am having a problem.
It seems ST4 outputs are switched???? When I calibrate, first it starts RA Forward but it moves left (DEC Forward) when it reverses back it goes down (RA Reverse)!!!
Anyone using this camera has this problem????

Using EQMod mount instead moves to the right directions.
