I understand why you are asking the question.

Well the thing is, PoE and Powerline are not the same thing. With powerline you are using an already existing power electrical cable to transfer data
between systems. There's a lot that can interfere with this system. Noise, outlets, cable splits, etc.

With PoE you are using a special standard for ethernet cables that carries current that is needed for a network device to function using separate cables.
To use that technology you need an injector on the power side. Normally the devices must be PoE compatible, if not you need another equipment.

It seems you want to use it for other purpose, well I never tried that. Maybe it's possible too.

Well you can do that, that is what PoE does, but normally you are limited to 48v maximum. And I would not risk more than that.

You can get some info from here: pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Power_Over_Ethernet

Totally agree! I have tested with 3 different systems and in fact, it's not a good idea. Gave up and on that!
Performance is not addequate for AP. At least that was my experience.

I have put my DSI Pro to the test with your script and also cannot reproduce the failed exposure.
I had it working aprox. one hour nonstop until I stop the server. I noticed however that memory usage almost doubled in this time frame!!!!
No crashes or hanging, worked fine and stable.

Also I built INDI Lib and DSI Driver from today sources.

I remember seeing an exagerated memory increase on my DSI Pro when connected to my PI B+.
Also sometimes it would hang or crash in the middle of exposing session.
I will try you script on mine and see how it works.

Hi Jasem, first the align model is working very well, I have checked that with PHD2 drift align and I am really closer that I was before.
Also I can make longer exposures without drift so the issue is only the first positioning of the mount, as you said, If made manually there's no problem. Thank you for this method, it really helps.

That's exactly what happened to me but I did let it finish the movement and noticed the wrong place on kstars. Then I made a second alignment and like you, it worked.

Just to report on tonight alignment. I have put the mount very close to the NCP and tested the wizard and it worked very well indeed!
BUT if the mount is not close enough pole and it asks to move the mount, it always detects the NCP on the wrong side of URSA MINOR and moves to the
wrong direction (inverted). Anyone having this issue????

nMAC replied to the topic 'Can't change ISO of indi_v4l2_ccd device in EKOS' in the forum. 4 weeks ago

By reading the docs it looks that the PiCamera has 3 mode settings/ports, (Still/Video/Preview):

picamera.readthedocs.io/en/release-1.10/fov.html#camera-modes

I searched the most recent docs about this, only found this ones.
Maybe it's being detected in Video mode and ISO is only available is Stiil Capture mode?
Does the INDI driver have any option to change this? Just my 2 cents...
