Hello !

I tested a lot of different things.

With an arduino Mega card and Onstep no connection problems.
With teensy card, connection problems.

I managed to connect to the teensy only by sending a command via the serial console of the arduino software.
I kept looking. In fact it is necessary to install the file rules of teensy!

sudo cp 49-teensy.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/

www.pjrc.com/teensy/49-teensy.rules
I also install the latest version of arduino and teensyduino to be on.

After that, no problem connecting Arduino Mega and teensy

Yes. i create 99-usb-seriel.rules with teensy ID and seriel number.

hello i need your help !

I connect to OnStep via my raspberry 3. In my OnStep I am a teensy 3.2.

When I try to connect:

2017-07-26T03:19:29: Handshake failed.
2017-07-26T03:19:29: Failure. Telescope is not responding to ACK!
2017-07-26T03:19:19: Testing telescope connection using ACK...
2017-07-26T03:19:19: Connection successful, attempting handshake...
2017-07-26T03:19:19: Port FD 3
2017-07-26T03:19:19: Connecting to /dev/arduino


I set the connection name of onstep with you.

Thank you for this explanation I understand better now.

Thanks for the python script GPSTime that works very well with my raspberry!

I begin to understand better how the time setting in astroberry.

I added to my raspberry on Ubunutu Mate 16.04 a NEMA USB GPS recently. I have owned this installation for some time (since more than 2 years) and I would like to add an automatic time setting to startup as on Astroberry-server.

Could you explain to me how to activate this as you did with astroberry-server?

It is possible to add button for update raspberry time with GPS time in "GPS Pannel" ?

Full feature of Gphoto does not work with digic III processor. For better compatibility it is necessary to use a digic IV processor.

I took a 500D and not a 1000D because of that!

Hello !

It's cool that we are more used Onstep and that is more to want to do with Indi and Linux!

I also am trying to achieve for electronics Onstep. I already realize a prototype for shiel Arduino to use AstroEQ and there I make a similar shield for Onstep.

if I can help you for the software does not hesitate!

I tested with the driver windi ascom OnStep. Everything works without any problems!

But I'd rather have a real driver indi otherwise I need a computer running Windows in addition to my raspberry makes server.

It requires in addition to 2 server cascading!

Hello.

I would like to use the project "Onstep" to control my mount (GP2 vixen). I have already built a control card and I use a card Arduino Mega 2560 (but you can also use a teensy 3.2 for improved performance).

Onstep uses language LX200:
www.stellarjourney.com/index.php?r=site/software_telescope

The developper website identifies very well the controls.
There is an ASCOM driver for Onstep and a software which exploits all the functionality that has create the developer ( "planetarium sky").

I do not need a driver who operates every possibility (driver ethernet, wifi, bluetooth and usb).

I need a driver that connects via USB and has the following functionality:

hand control:
- connection
- On set
- abort
- Parking (park, unpark and set park position)
- Tracking (on and off)

motion control:

- Motion N / S (north and south)
- Motion W / E (West, East)
- Slew rate (guide, centering, find, max)
- Slew Target
- Tracking mode (sidereal, solar, lunar, custom)
- Tracking frequency

Site management:
- As "LX200 Autostar"

Guide:
- As "LX200 Autostar"

Firmware_data:
- As "LX200 Autostar"

I try using the driver "LX200 Autostar", "LX200 Classic", "LX200 GPS". The card that connects (with sudo chmod uga+rwx /dev/ACM0). I even manage to send it to precise position. But once possible to park unpark.

But that's what does not work:

- Sends the UTC time at start
- Sends the latitude and longitude
- The "unpark" (the "park" function works)
- No button to activate the tracking
- Tracking mode does not work
- So "firmware_data", "full" does not.

If we take the driver "LX200 Autostar" should be deleted:

Hand control:
- alignment
- Use pulse cmd

- The menu "Focuser"

It must be added:
- A button on / off tracking
- A set button sets the park position = Parking position this location

This must be corrected:

Hand control:
- unpark
- Connection (wrong order for the latitude and longitude).

Motion control:
- Correct the tracking mode

Site management:
- Correct latitude and longitude control ( "*" instead of a ":")

Firmware_data:
- Correct reading of the order to "full"


To test all this it just sufficed to have an Arduino Mega and inject the code of the branch of -alpha github onstep: github.com/hjd1964/OnStep/tree/Arduino-Mega2560-Teensy3.1-Alpha

Here I hope someone can help me!
It'll be cool Indi compatible with Onstep !!!!

Afterwards we can add features but the features above sity Suffice to good use Onstep.

Thank you in advance for any help you could give me.
Where can I get a tutorial to start working on this change?

I have the basics in Python and C.

No no solution for now. :( :angry:


It is blocked by QHYCCD that does not broadcast its SDK in opensource. :huh: :huh:

They are redoing their full SDK. Or so he says on the forum but no news since two months. :angry: :angry: :angry:

durand Sébastien replied to the topic 'Moonlite focuser protocol' in the forum. 2 years ago

Hello !

At home it is also ugly. I do not use this driver because it does not manage the temperature and it is not detected properly on Windows by ASCOM drivers.

But I found another:

sourceforge.net/projects/arduinomoonlite...ne/?source=directory

The designer is going a step further and can emulate all the functions of MoonlightFocuser. It would be interesting to see if it is compatible with INDI !

Hello.

I wonder if it would be possible to change the minimum size of KStars windows to 400x400 which would be able to use on screens of 640x480 and 800x600.

I know we can force resizing with Kwin but be on Kubuntu or KDE. Excluding all distributions do not necessarily have access.

Thank you.

Nice job!
My current configuration, use a raspberry B +, + a laptop. I create the server at start of raspberry and I drive all on my laptop via wifi raspberry.
I should install astroberry on the laptop too? because it does not appear in the EKOS list on the laptop.

I need install bcm2835 and RTIMULib in my laptop ?
