Karsten replied to the topic 'USB recognition of mount and other parts' in the forum. 22 hours 41 minutes ago

I had some issues with my mount and an Arduino myself. The EQ Mount and the Focuser try to connect via /dev/ttyUSB* and employ some auto probing if that fails.
I don't know if that collides somehow.

I changed the Indi devices to not auto connect at startup. I also disabled the serial probing. (restarted Indi to make sure everything was idle)
After that I could connect the devices one by one. (I checked to get the device names/numbers correct)

A better way would be to make and use stable device entries with udev. hintshop.ludvig.co.nz/show/persistent-names-usb-serial-devices/

knro wrote: I've been thinking that one solution to this is instead of streaming raw full-res images, which is the reason why it's so slow.. Maybe we should encode them as a video stream.. something like libtheora (.ogv) and then send that blob over to KStars. Let me see if this sorts of thing is possible or worth it.


a full frame with 16bit is 32MB on the ASI1600MM-C
a good HDD is able to get about 30MB/s via USB on the RPI 3

so getting more than 1 fps from camera to Indi seems unlikely

My Setup is a RPI3 with StellarmateOS.

ASI1600MM-C + ASI Filter Wheel, ASI-120MC (via the ASI1600MM-C usb hub)
Ekos/Indi running locally
VNC Desktop over 2.4GHz Wifi

I wonder if usbip.sourceforge.net/ could be of any use for you?

Probaly needs a bit of network knowledge and a VPN connection like www.zerotier.com/

just did an other testing round

this time the live preview worked
the live preview after binning a single frame caused an other crash

Hi,

just tried to live stream to my rpi with the ASI1600MM-C.

In the first tries I ended up with the player window staying black and reporting about 1.1 fps.

After switching to binning 4, doing a preview, then trying to stream the driver even crashed.

I used github.com/fehlfarbe/arduino-motorfocus with an Arduino Nano 5v clone from Amazon ( Link ). It emulates a MoonLite focuser via USB and can run even without RPI.

Karsten replied to the topic 'ASI-EFW not saving the Filter labels' in the forum. 3 days ago

Saving and loading the config for the ASI-EFW works fine for me. (7x36mm)

In you log I can not see that a config load is triggered.
Can you try to load the config via INDI Control Panel? ASI-EFW -> Options -> Configuration -> Load
Can you check what the setting in Kstars is? Settings -> Konfigure KStars -> Ekos -> General -> Configuartion -> Load Device Configuration - "On Connection"

Karsten replied to the topic 'Trouble installing INDI on Raspian Stretch' in the forum. 6 days ago

Are you trying to install the Ubuntu packages on the Raspian/Debian? That could explain the different dependency names.

I think it is better to use ubuntu-mate.org/raspberry-pi/

Karsten replied to the topic 'Auto-guiding with a SkyWatcher AZ-EQ6' in the forum. 1 week ago

the direct connection replaces the st-4 cable requirement as the guide commands are sent directly over the usb/serial connection

if you get random disconnects from the mount you need to disconnect the hand controller

Karsten replied to the topic 'Items from last night's INDI/Ekos/Kstars session' in the forum. 1 week ago

just wanted to add some of my things from my last imaging night
- while doing flats with a wall mounted box my eqmod controlled mount was enabling guiding (I could understand dithering but not guiding while doing flats on a wall position)
- after doing flats the ekos interface was switched to lights but when capturing a frame it actually tried to run a flat frame (going to wall position) - I guess that it somehow did not correctly cancel a strange 2000s exposure in indi and failed to sync the switch from flat to light to indi (after stopping and resetting everything it was working as expected) I probably have to reproduce that to give more helpful feedback
- while imaging and using the internal guider my rpi lost connection from ekos to indi twice (kstars running via vnc and ekos doing everything locally) The second disconnect happened while switching the view in kstars. (probably kstars was busy and delayed ekos too much)

I need to remember to create logs by default.

Karsten replied to the topic 'StellarMate Astrophotography Gadget' in the forum. 3 weeks ago

Thanks for making the image available.

For my wireless mouse I had to add "usbhid.mousepoll=0" in /boot/cmdline.txt to fix the laggy mouse cursor when connecting directly via HDMI.
I also increased the screen resolution in /boot/config.txt by changing the hdmi_mode=21 to hdmi_mode=47 (up to 1920x1080 should be ok - check the second column for modes and codes above that line)
