I hope that this device will be fully supported asap :)

Thanks again.

Ok, I found the mistake :) :) :)
My issue related to exposure failed with both my DSLR is due to noise reduction function enabled on camera.
Disabling this feature on both camera now I'm able to take photo with correct exposure... and I'm very happy B) :cheer:

Hi Knro,
I updated the libgphoto to the latest version but the issue persist.... :( :( :(
The strange is that also with my old 50D I have the same issue.

But I'm only one to have trouble with canon DSLR?

Paolo created a new topic ' ekos DSLR canon 5d MK3 only black frame' in the forum. 9 months ago

Hi all,
I'm trying to take some photo of M42 with my canon 5D mk3 using ekos.
If I click on preview after to hove all paramter correctly (exposure, iso and so on) some time I'm able to see correctly the photo and some time I see only a black frame...
While starting the sequence... all photos are a black frame....

For example I stared the following sequence all at 800 ISO:
2017-03-28T20:13:41: Starting 120 sec exposure
2017-03-28T20:11:30: Starting 120 sec exposure
2017-03-28T20:09:20: Starting 120 sec exposure
2017-03-28T20:08:09: Starting 60 sec exposure
2017-03-28T20:07:29: Starting 30 sec exposure
2017-03-28T20:06:03: Starting 30 sec exposure
But all raw files are black...

The strange is that opening, for example with gwenview, the cr2 raw filee, I see that for all this images the exposure time is 1/10....

Where I'm wrong???
Please let me know
Paolo

Paolo created a new topic ' ekos DSLR Camera Settings' in the forum. 9 months ago

Hi All,
I would like to use my DSLR camera to take photo with my primary scope.
My DSLR camera is an old Canon 50D.

When I go under ekos --> CCD & Filter and select GPhoto CCD a new "DSLR CAmera Settings" appear where I need to put Sensor Resolution and Pixel Pitch informations.

As suggested I opened the "Digital Camera Database" link where I found this informations... but...
Sensor Resolution is 4760 x 3173 and this is ok....
While the Pixel Pitch is 4.68 µm
On "DSLR Camerra Settings" window ask me for Pixel Pitch two value (0,00 x 0,00) but from previous link I have only one value for that: 4.68 µm

How we need to fill this two field for Pixel Pitch ?

Thanks in advance

Paolo created a new topic ' QHY5L-II issue after latest indi's updates' in the forum. 9 months ago

Hi all,
I'm using QHY5L-II as auto-guide.
Today I update indi's software and after that I'm not able to take a preview from ekos.
When I click in preview button the image still to be in downloading and nothing is happening

From INDI control panel seem to be all ok:

2017-03-21T22:02:08: Device configuration applied.
2017-03-21T22:02:08: Upload settings set to client only.
2017-03-21T22:02:08: Loading device configuration...
2017-03-21T22:02:08: Using default recorder (SER File Recorder)
2017-03-21T22:02:07: Connected to QHY5LII-M-6057e710ac1271436.

Under main controls tab I see the device connected correctly (green light)

However, I noticed that whem I click on preview button under ekos, on INDI control panel --> main control, the Exposure field become yellow.

From the latest packages that has been update I see also the following package:
libqhy:armhf (0.1.8+r2999~201703202003~ubuntu16.04.1, 0.1.8+r3004~201703212005~ubuntu16.04.1)

In addition when I attach the QHY on USB port all is ok:

Mar 21 23:01:39 astroberry kernel: [ 1262.903173] usb 1-1.2.2: config 1 interface 0 altsetting 0 bulk endpoint 0x81 has invalid maxpacket 64

Mar 21 23:01:39 astroberry kernel: [ 1262.903400] usb 1-1.2.2: Manufacturer: QHY-CCD

Before the latest updates I was able to take correctly the preview.

Hi to all,
I'm a newbie on astrophotography and I'm ready to start this new experience using Linux B)
As mount I have an EQ6 and it would be full supported by INDI.
As autoguider I'll have a QHY 5L II mono and for the moment I'll use a Canon DSLR to take photo.

I would like to know which software are you suing to stack images and for darkframe subtraction under Linux.

Thanks in advance.
