Managed to copy the rules file to the correct directory (and learned a lot about the file system and syntax :-))
Then i started the system new. controlled if the driver is where it has to be-->OK
So i started Kstars, the Ekos. Normally i open the pulldowns i need and choose the device i need.
But i can find it there. Shouldnt it be in "Guider"?
Because i can not find anything called mgen. Or do you talk about another kind of starting my driver with my indiserver?


Hi guys, I think there should be done the compile-thing somewhere? Eric, when the.cakemaker is updated - could you please stepbystep us up the compilething in this special case?

So INDI could manage a monster like this, if the client software supports imaging session for 1-n cameras with 1-n focussers?

Hi Michael,
hopefully there is something to come here: www.campussternwarte.de/freego2.html
It seems they are still in "beta" but specs look promising.

Hi at all,

are there any issues not to build a focuser like this one?: indiduino.wordpress.com/2012/11/13/stepper/
indiduino.wordpress.com/2012/12/03/focusser/ with this hardware: physicalcomputing.at/epages/f46ab952-295...ducts/A-10070%5B1%5D
Is there a ready to use driver or does one have to build it by himself? I found non in the devices list.

My near term goal is to build up my equipment to contribute to this project: tbg.vdsastro.de/
adding integration time from multiple telescopes can give you more than pretty pictures

Never had a problem with glue. I do the same with my lenses, front and back, too.

Hi pcxz,
I use "tesa" duct tape. Taping it on the coverglas using a q-tip to push it down and than pulling it of gives good results.
Use a tape that doesn't leave glue on the glas, test it before on a window!

Andreas created a new topic ' Interesting Projekt - canonlense control with arduino/ascom' in the forum. 12 months ago

Might be interesting for some of you, using canon lenses without canon body.
A guy in Germany built one: www.astrotreff.de/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=207393 but he did the software side of it proprietary. He had the information from a Russian site.
I found it here in 'non Cyrillic': www.cloudynights.com/topic/538277-canon-...er-anyone-used-this/
the design is from Sergey (Palomar), he described it in a pdf.

Maybe someone is interested in indifying?

Andreas replied to the topic 'Arduino Pin Numbers and simple_switcher_sk.XML' in the forum. 1 year ago

Hi VTVL,

in the documentation is described:

...Each of the 20 digital i/o pins on the Leonardo can be used as an input or output, using pinMode(), digitalWrite(), and digitalRead() functions. They operate at 5 volts. Each pin can provide or receive a maximum of 40 mA and has an internal pull-up resistor (disconnected by default) of 20-50 kOhms. In addition, some pins have specialized functions:

Serial: 0 (RX) and 1 (TX). Used to receive (RX) and transmit (TX) TTL serial data using the ATmega32U4 hardware serial capability....


Maybe it's because of the specialized function of 0 and 1.

This was fast,

so they aren't that busy. Here is what Tommy of Lacerta wrote:

hallo Andreas,

ja wir liefern gern das Protokoll für die Kommunikation über den USB Port,
und freuen uns wenn sich jemand bereit findet eine INDI Implikation zu machen.
Ich hänge das pdf mit den Protokoll Infos hier an, und hoffe daß es weiter hilft.

Ich bin mit Andrea Ricciardi von Astrel in Kontakt und weiß dass er eine komplette INDI Lösung
über das TinyAstro OS an bord der Astel anstrebt. Der MGEN erhält jetzt den Trigger zum Dithern
und meldet das vollzogene Dithern an die Astrel zurück - funzt tadellosest.

Mit iAstrohub funktioniert der MGEn inzwishen auch schon in entsprechender Weise.

Bitte mich auf dem Laufenden halten, bzw wenn weiterführende Info nötig ist dann verbinde ich mit unserem MGEN Entwickler.

Hi There,

MGEN with INDI - control would be great. The MGEN is IMHO the best device for standalone guiding. Lacerta did help those astrel guys to let their cam trigger MGEN's dithering. I just asked Lacerta "... if they can provide protocol for control or any API/SDK that would help.." like Jasem suggested.
It's Christmastime so they might be very busy now...

Hi at All,
this: indilib.org/forum/ekos/1687-tip-for-ekos...d-devices.html#12499 improved downloading the fits. It's only a quarter (estimate) of the time needed.

I don't think the gpu_mem tweaking is of great use for us. The cpu memory shrinks the same amount and afaik the fits are made by the cpu.
Some guys who play games on Pis do have benefits from this. www.reddit.com/r/RetroPie/comments/4ckx6...mory_split_for_pi_3/
I changed itgpu_mem like described here: www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/configuration/config-txt.md (2nd chapter)
