Marco Gulino created a new topic ' StarQuew - Web INDI client and sequence generator' in the forum. 2 months ago

Hi all,

I'd like to share with you a first beta version of my new software.
You can think of it like an "Ekos light": a web based INDI client and sequence generator, particularly suited for embedded environments like the Raspberry Pi.

You can find a the software and some docs about installation in the github page: github.com/GuLinux/StarQuew

Please share your thoughts and feedback :)

FYI, I just renamed the project to StarQueW, and moved it to a separate repository: github.com/GuLinux/StarQueW

The INDI control panel module is much more stable and fast now, so it kinda deserved to be in its own repo :D

Interesting topic.
I'd be interested to know about power consumption, particularly in headless mode.
I currently use a Raspberry Pi 3 with some python scripts plus a 20Ah power bank for smartphones, and it lasts quite long (more than one night usually), but the transfer rate is painfully slow.
I also bought an Odroid XU4, but although in headless mode requires much less than the 4A declared on their homepage (seems to be around 1/2A) it still drains my power bank until the ASI camera starts disconnecting.

Would this rock64 be an improvement?

Well, as I mentioned, it's still very work in progress, so there isn't a public apidocs for the REST API.

However a good starting point is this file: github.com/GuLinux/indi-lite-tools/blob/...backend/indi-lite.py
where you can see all the routes.
('events' in particular is a Server Sent Events route, to get asynchronous messages from the server)

Hi,
yes, my webapp does provide a REST API, though it's still in a very early stage and lots of refactoring are incoming.

It's already in a quite good shape though, as you can see in the attached image.
The INDI control panel is more or less complete, the main feature though will be the ability of creating and managing sequences.

Marco Gulino created a new topic ' Ekos scheduler: pause for manual focusing/fw change' in the forum. 2 years ago

Hello,
I'm trying to setup an Ekos workstation for my new setup: an ASI178MM, a manual filter wheel, and a camera lens with manual focus only.

Ekos looks great, particularly for users with automatic filter wheels, shutters, focusers, but unless I'm missing something, it seems to lack a few controls for manual accessories.

The most important issue is that it would be nice to have a way to add a "pause" item to a sequence. This way, users can change the filter wheel and refocus if necessary.
It would also be nice to have a "manual filter wheel" device, so it would be possible to add the filter name to the sequence.

Thanks
Marco

Actually, me too :) It should work fine with that camera, just by setting serial port as you usually would do with the older driver!

@oleg: I didn't know someone was using my DSLR Shooter... Sure will do, hopefully this evening :)
Did you also have the chance to test the indi driver?
@Christian: all of them, unfortunately! I just filed a bug to ubuntu packagers, cimg shouldn't really depend on X, or at least they should do a non-X version.. you might vote the issue, so it might be implemented sooner :)
