Hi knro:

Thanks for adding the support in the mount control menu.

You mentioned that the J2000 stuff would ONLY be visible in the mount control panel and no where outside that, can you tell me the reason for that?

From this topic I knew that both KStars and INDI use JNOW coordinate. However, many catalogs and online databases provide J2000 coordinate of an object. The only place I can use J2000 coordinate is in schedule module. For normal telescope slewing, I must enter JNOW coordinate in mount control menu. One possible way is to add an option for user to select which type of coordinates are entered. Is there any plan to implement J2000 coordinate input in mount control in Ekos?

JNOW coordinates are displayed in both INDI and Ekos, I wish there's an option to select which type of coordinate to display (J2000 or JNOW). Is it hard to implement such feature?

Thanks knro, I have patched your latest library and now the camera worked again ! I'll test it later on my remote INDI server to see if it can work.

My latest test with 0.1.8 SDK shows that the indi_qhy_ccd will not crash anymore, however, my camera cannot connect to the computer. I have been trying with many times and I could not solve the problem.

Hi AstroWill:

Following Copello's method, the problem is temporarily solved.

Step:
1. Download libqhy_64.bin from github.com/qhyccd-lzr/QHYCCD_Linux/blob/master/libqhy_64.bin
2. Rename libqhy_64.bin to libqhyccd_x86_64.bin
3. Copy libqhyccd_x86_64.bin to libqhy and overwrite the existing file.
4. Compile the driver.
5. Create a symbol link to /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libqhyccd.so.2.0.3: sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libqhyccd.so.2.0.3 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libqhy.so.0.1.8 (This is because the indi_qhy_cc will find the libqhy.so.0.1.8, however, you'll get libqhyccd.so.2.0.3 from the installation.)

The crash version of libqhyccd is 2.0.3. I went back to version 2.0.0 and the problem still exist.

Recently I tested my QHY178MM with the latest indi-qhy driver, the driver crashed immediately on startup. Checking the output, it looks like something went wrong in the libqhyccd.so.

Here is the log:

Yes you’re right. I just want to enter a J2000 coordinate from the mount control menu or something similar. As I usually acquire target position from online database such as VizieR, which gives J2000 coordinate. Also it will be nice if there is an option to choose which kind of coordinates to be display in INDI( I mean the program still uses JNOW for computation, but provide 2 display options).

starrybird replied to the topic 'Which epoch is used in Ekos and INDI?' in the forum. 4 weeks ago

Thanks for the reply. I wonder why KStars and INDI use JNOW as default? Since J2000 is more convenient to use, every time I manually enter a coordinate to slew the mount, I have to work convert it from J2000 to JNOW first. Is there any setting for choosing default coordinate type?

starrybird created a new topic ' Which epoch is use in Ekos and INDI?' in the forum. 1 month ago

Moving from ASCOM to INDI, I just came across the question that which epoch is used in coordinate in both KStars(Ekos) and INDI ? As I could not find any epoch setting.

I just solved an image using astrometry.net on Ekos and on my local machine, which gave me different result:

Local machine: Field center: (RA H:M:S, Dec D:M:S) = (19:30:46.047, +27:57:05.571).

Ekos: Solution coordinates: RA (19h 31m 28s) DEC ( 27° 59' 26")

I am sure that the astrometry.net uses J2000 coordinate ( See here ), from the above test result, I guess both KStars(Ekos) and INDI use something other. Is it JNOW ?


If both KStars(Ekos) and INDI use JNOW, is there any way to switch to J2000?

starrybird created a new topic ' Moravian G2-3200 shutter opened in taking bias frame' in the forum. 2 months ago

I just received my G2-3200 from Moravian Instruments and tested with the latest INDI driver (indi_mi_ccd v1.3) and Ekos. I noticed that the CCD opened shutter and closed it immediately during taking the bias frame, which results in capturing light in bias frame. Testing the dark frame without any problem and the shutter stay closed as expected. Searching through the forum and found a related topic: http://indilib.org/forum/ccds-dslrs/2297-problem-getting-images-from-atik-383l-mono.htmlhttp://indilib.org/forum/ccds-dslrs/2297-problem-getting-images-from-atik-383l-mono.html

I just wonder if someone came across the same problem with those mechanical shutter CCD.
