Patrick replied to the topic 'Problems with AZ-EQ5 that is lost in the sky.' in the forum. yesterday

Hi Jasem, I will try to convince my friend to do new tests. We have done all them yesterday using teamviewer from my home to his home 50km away, where the setup was installed.
So it is not easy to redo but not impossible.

It took a look on the fpack utility. It is very effricient on fits files. Reducing the size to half "in a trice" with the Hcompress algorithm on the images I tested.

Option 1 : is an interesting idea, but I agree with the fact that you can saturate quickly the quota of storage allowed.
Option 2 : Personally I don't see any interest in this option.

Might it exists a non destructive compression for raw or fits files. that might give a better interest to option 1 ?

I cleared the alignments in the Alignment tab of the device manager and in the successive plate-solve done during the polar alignment.
Moving the mount "with the virtual pad" we point a star some degrees out of the pole zone. The astrometry systematically fail.
The fact was that it only recognize the polar area in astrometry but was lost everywhere else.
When trying to point an identified star it start to:an unexpected direction.:(
Maybe there is some info that wasn't really deleted.
Another fact is that the single board computer on which Kstars, Ekos and Indi were running has been connected to an AZ-EQ6 before and worked well.
I wonder if there might be common parameters for mounts in the configuation file of the driver that can pollute the way that, differents mounts using the same driver, work.
Another hypothesis could be that the time of the mount and the time of the SBC are not synchronized. If that occurs the question is why and how ?

This occurs on a friend AZ-EQ5 mount.
After doing a precise polar alignment. we tried to go to Arcturus that was high in the sky. And the mount started in an unexpected direction and stopped pointing the wall of the house. We tried a lot of configruation in the eqmount setup parameters without success.
You can imagine that the astrometry failed because we were too far from the target.
Have some people here experienced equivalent problems. And if yes have you a solution ?

Hi Jasem,
Hum, looks like I hadn't gphoto2 installed because when I entered the command line the system told me that gphoto2 was missing.
I can't understand how it could work without it. Maybe gphoto was installed but not gphoto2.

Any idea

Hello all,
To answer your question @TallFurryMan I just created a little nginx server on the tinkerboard that listen on the 80 port.
I set 3 scripts in the www folder of the user, one is a js that gets the date and time from the client side to set the date and time of the remote device and capture actions like shutdown and reboot. This js file call 2 php script that belong to the www-data user who is allowed to do do date, shutdown and reboot actions in a sudoers file.
Thats all.
@Jasem, I wonder if this could be an extension to the Indi Web Manager.

Hello Bruce,
My question wasn't about the settings of gain and offset for the capture but the shift to left of the image that can be seen on the one I included in the beginning of the discussion.

Patrick replied to the topic 'little problem with QHY165C camera' in the forum. 2 months ago

Not sure the gain have to do something with the viewing offset of the image. Maybe I will try to change the gain value, but I am not confident in the fact that it can solve the problem. Which one looks more as a question of synchro in reading cam memory and transfert.

I guess it warn me if the CNP is not in the field of view but not if the RA axis is not in the field.
