With USB_FocusV3 you also need the controller in addition to the motor as you do with pretty much all other focusers too. I have one in my remote observatory and it has worked quite well, only problems I had at first were due to ModemManager trying to claim the device as well. PrimaLuceLab has an integrated solution called Sesto Senso ( www.primalucelab.com/astronomy/sesto-sen...-focusing-motor.html ), which is also supported by INDI, but I don't have experience with that myself.

Jarno Paananen replied to the topic 'Atik 383L+ fails to complete exposure' in the forum. 2 months ago

I haven't noticed any practical effect on download times between those two values (and 8 is the default on Raspberry Pi), but previously my guide camera almost always stopped working if I was guiding during image download due to USB timeout. Timer threshold in my understanding controls whether the camera's internal or system timer is used to time the capture, so for short exposures camera's internal timer is used for accuracy and longer exposures use system timer, which might suffer from additional delays so the capture time might be a bit longer than specified. I haven't touched that myself and use both shorter and longer exposures without problems.

I have the same camera and haven't had that sort of problems, align, focus and capture all work in sequence. I use 1.26 version of the driver on amd64 Ubuntu 17.10 machine with INDI and KStars compiled from git and the only change I've made to the Atik configuration is to lower the buffer size from 24 to 8 megs to avoid locking up my SX guidecamera during image download from Atik.

I think your problem is that "blueman-r" process as my system doesn't list any processes with "lsof /dev/rfcomm0" when not connected and indi_eqmod_telescope when it is. I don't use the bluetooth manager connect but have "rfcomm bind 0 20:16:xx:xx:xx:xx" in my startup scripts.

Looks nice, unfortunately not straight forward to test on Ubuntu due to the libqt5datavisualization5 module not being packaged even in 17.10 ( bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+bug/1727617 ).

This seems to be a Qt version issue, on my x64 Ubuntu 17.10 with Qt 5.9.1 it compiles, but on Raspberry Pi Ubuntu 16.04 with Qt 5.5.1 I get this same error.

Did you try to start it with simulation on? I recently fixed a similar looking crash with simulation, but I'd think that fix already made it into the PPA.

I use PHD2 with Ekos as well, though both run on the observatory computer on the same screen so I haven't missed the graphs in Ekos too much :) Anyway, one thing I've meant to dig into is that after dithering Ekos sometimes seems to start exposure too early so I'm not sure if it handles settle end event correctly from PHD2. I've worked this around by using long enough fixed delay, but that's not really solution either...

I guess so, there is a driver option for it and it's 8 by default for ARM and 24 for X86.
