giorgio created a new topic ' Unable to start Indi Temma Driver in Ekos' in the forum. 1 week ago

Since KStars 2.9.2 I have been unable to start the Indi Temma Driver on the Ekos Control Panel. I get the following error:

Driver indi_temma failed to start on the remote INDI server!

My Indi server runs on an astroberry pi, I get the same error either using KStars remotely on Mac OS or the version installed on the RPi3. I only have a Tak EM-200 mount and I cannot use Indi at all...

Is there something going on with the Indi Temma driver name??

giorgio replied to the topic 'Hitecastro Mount Hub Pro Compact' in the forum. 2 months ago

Last week I was at the European AstroFest in London ( europeanastrofest.com/ ) and spoke to a representative of Hitecastro who was very adamant that INDI drivers were being developed for all their Mount hubs (Mount Hub Pro, Mount Hub Pro Compact and Mount Hub Pro V4) and other devices.
Is this true? I browse this forum quite regularly but I haven't seen any current thread on Hitecastro products...
I have myself a Mount Hub Pro Compact and it would be great if I could use it via INDI.

Hi Kaczorek, are you planning to upgrade Astroberry Server to Indi v1.6? I tried to do a 'sudo astroberry-upgrade' but I got the message 'your system is up to date'.

giorgio created a new topic ' Support for Netatmo Weather Stations' in the forum. 4 months ago

It would be great if Indi could support Netatmo weather stations:
www.netatmo.com/en-GB/product/weather/weatherstation
These stations capture temperature, atmospheric pressure and humidity logging data to the Netatmo own servers. Users can retrieve the data by logging on to the Netatmo site via a PC, smartphone or tablet. The company provides also an SDK at: dev.netatmo.com/resources/technical/introduction
As owner of one of theses stations I’m happy to help testing a future Netatmo Indi driver.

When I try to start the Indi server on my RPi3 using the QHY driver:

indiserver -vvv indi_qhy_ccd

I get the following error:

Do Celestron Skyris cameras work under INDI? Has any of you tried them? Essentially these are custom built products from The Imaging Source for Celestron.
Imaging Source cameras which should be already supported in INDI.

I've purchased an Hitecastro Mount Hub Pro Compact from www.hitecastro.co.uk and I'd love to use it in Indi.
This device is the Compact version of its popular bigger brother and it includes: a robofocus compatible focuser controller, four 12V DC ports that can be switched on/off in software and a dew controller with three ports also manageable in software.
It's a very neat and relatively inexpensive device that could have a lot of potential for automated remote configurations in Indi

giorgio replied to the topic 'iAstroHub 3.0 for RPi3 is ready!' in the forum. 1 year ago

Can iAstroHub act as an out of the box INDI server for Ekos/KStars and other INDI client applications?
In other threads we are trying to come up with a default INDI RPi image that can be easily deployed with minimal configuration. A plug and play box pretty much like iAstroHub.
With such a thing I would then be free to use Ekos/KStars on my client computers..

giorgio replied to the topic 'Malfunctioning indi_temma driver' in the forum. 1 year ago

Hello Jasem, I'm afraid I do not have a version of minicom to try. On the other hand I confirm I can use the mount with with the same cable under Mac Os and the Cloudmakers version of Indi running on the same Mac. The issue seems to be restricted to Raspberry Pi. I have the impression that Jean-Christophe is having my same issue. See is thread on this same forum: indilib.org/forum/general/1782-problems-...takahashi.html#13660

He also noticed that RA and DEC position cannot be read from the Pi.

Thank you and regards,
Giorgio

Hello Jean-Christophe, I believe I am experiencing your same issue. I'm also using an EM-200 and, with the latest version of indi_temma, RA and DEC positions cannot be read from the mount when using a Raspberry Pi. Here is the link to my thread:

indilib.org/forum/mounts/1781-malfunctio...di-temma-driver.html

My troubleshooting has stalled since I do not have (and not sure how to get) a version of minicom running on windows.

Giorgio

Thanks again for your help.

I've tried running Indi as root using:
sudo indiserver -vvv indi_temma but the issue is still there. Checked permissions for /dev/ttyUSB0 and they are:

giorgio@astropi3:~$ ls -al /dev/ttyUSB*
crw-rw-rw- 1 root dialout 188, 0 Dec 30 23:25 /dev/ttyUSB0

I've also added user 'giorgio' to the dialout group but again, the problem persists. I'm tempted to rebuild the RPi from scratch to see if the issue was caused by upgrading from Indi 1.2 to 1.3 or during any of the other updates...

One more thing, here is the output of 'lsusb' from the RPi3:

Thank you for your reply Gerry. Here are some more details/answers:

- I'm running Ubuntu Mate on the RPi3 and I've installed Indi and KStars using Jasem apt repository.
- I assume I have the latest Indi and driver versions configured using 'apt-get update' followed by 'apt-get upgrade'.
- The RPi3 connects to the mount using a well tested (using other applications/computers on my EM-200) FTDi serial to USB adapter.
- Driver is configured to use /dev/ttyUSB0 at 19200 baud.

After additional testing I can definitely say that issue is limited to the RPi itself. Today I successfully used Indi Server and indi_temma on my macbook (Peter Polakovic Cloudmakers version) directly connected to the mount on /dev/cu.usbserial-AI02CT1N at 19200 baud. Cartes Du Ciel worked flawlessly and driver parameters on Indi control panel were reporting coordinates in sync with Cartes Du Ciel.

I'm very keen to understand what is going wrong with the RPi. That is my preferred configuration since it allows me to operate telescope and all other gear remotely. Is /dev/ttyUSB0 a correct parameter? How can I check for permission issues on the serial port?

Thank you for any possible help or hint.
Giorgio

P.S. error 'SLEW_CENTERING is not a member of TELESCOPE_SLEW_RATE property' was being logged when trying to use the Cloudmakers AstroTelescope client. At this point it seems it is a secondary issue.
