nMAC replied to the topic 'EQMod parking in non-standard position' in the forum. yesterday

Well maybe it's possible, never tried, Maybe I am wrong but I have a slight memory that once, I did that by mistake but for now it's just park and unpark at the same position.

Hi Kaczorek!

First I put the mount by hand (unclutching) at the Pole, sync it, then I slew it to the position I want it parked and then I use the Site Management/Current and Site Management/Write Data option like you said. You just have to redo all this steps if for any instance there is a power down before the park.
I also have transferred the xml config files between setups to maintain the park position and it works great.

Well I also have that problem with my observatory and I have been parking mine horizontally for about 2 years using a user defined park position.
and it works very well.

The first thing I did was a Sync pointed to north position (home) and then I manually moved the mount to my custom park position and finally told
eqmod to park to current position. Whenever I power the mount it knows where it's parked and where it's pointing, it's stored in the config file.

Hi! Yes I am still trying :-D It's kind of a personal thing. If I can manage to do it, I will post it.

@Knro, I have the original author documentation (pdf) containing the command set but I don't know if I can publish because project had some conflicts and
was shutdown. I can send it to you if it helps.

Regards

I have a Skyview Pro with the an MCU Mod and had the same problem.
You can see my post here : indilib.org/forum/mounts/2148-rajiva-mcu-update.html

The best driver is the OnStep, but neither one works correctly. It should. But it does not.
In the meantime I am trying to make a custom driver to the MCU using the correct lx200 commands.
I had some progress but it's not ready yet.

Are you using a CLS filter with your DSLR? If so images debayered to RGGB and seen with Fits Viewer have a strong green cast. It's normal.
There's no white balance applied to the image so you have to color correct it in processing.

nMAC replied to the topic 'FTDI chipset, mount disconnects' in the forum. 4 weeks ago

Well, that's great it's working!
I was thinking the same, the fact you changed the port may also triggered some change on the chip RTS Line and solved it.

I think that's an old problem, I had it too and it drived me nuts :blink trying to get my HEQ5 to work.
Made some extensive research and I had to find another solution has there are some linux kernels that do not get along very well with some FTDI chipsets.
Later I found they have specific linux drivers for their hardware but never tried them because in the meantime I changed to bluetooth.
Maybe you can try them for a sanity check! I remember a lot of complaints at the time because of some chipsets. Wich one is yours?

The is also a know issue with the RTS line of FTDI chipstets that also affects shooting:

nMAC replied to the topic 'ASI 120mc messed up frames' in the forum. 1 month ago

Mine is Mono (ASI120MM) and always at 8bit.
But I see you are using 8Bit (ZWO CCD ASI120MC.CCD_INFO.CCD_BITSPERPIXEL=8).
So here should be no problems.
My results are only using monochrome. I don't know it color models have those problems at 16bit, maybe other members can comment on their results.

nMAC replied to the topic 'ASI 120mc messed up frames' in the forum. 1 month ago

Not a single one. Works very well. Iam using a 7 Port 3M (BASF) Hub.
One other thing, very important, are you using 8 bit or 16 bit images?

ASI120 (at least the usb 2.0 model) has some problems dealing with 16bit images! I am using mine as a guider only at 8bit.

I power both of them from a stabilized 5V 10A power supply.
Sometimes even an 1A power supply would not be sufficient for the RPi but the most important would be the HUB, always with external power.

At the moment I have a RPI3 connected to a Powered HUB wich includes a DSI Pro, an ASI120MM and a Canon 550D.
I am also connected to the HEQ5 Via BT module of the RPi, all works fine.

Hi! I had the same configuration on my RPi 2, using a Meade DSI Pro for AllSky and a ASI120MM and suffered the same problem.
I had them all connected to to RPi2 and the only way I solved the problem was with an USB Powerd HUB. And even that, was not at the first time.
The ASI is very picky with USB Bus, specially when it's not "alone" on the same bus.

Have you tried flashing your ASI with the compatible firmware? That solves most of that USB issues.

You are trying to build the library. Just download the binary for your distribution and install that one from here:

launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libnova/0.14.0-2.1
There you have a section called builds, choose the correct binary for your computer. Mine is x86-64.
Are you using a 64bit ou 32bit system?

nMAC replied to the topic 'Atik crashing with Kubuntu 17.04' in the forum. 1 month ago

Hi, yes that should work, the correct syntax should be something like this (for x86-64):

ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libnova-0.16.so.0 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libnova-0.14.so.0

I solved mine (Atik 420m) installing libnova-014 ( launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/libnova/0.14.0-2.1 ).
Maybe you can solve it too with a Symlink to the libnova-016 file.

nMAC replied to the topic 'Issue installing INDI on Raspbian' in the forum. 2 months ago

As Debian builds another distro revision, sometimes filenames change and the last one changed some of them.
So, yes for the latest raspbian it needs correction at least for that filename if I remember correctly.
