Hi,

i use sony A7S but gphoto drivers have a lot of problem.
Maybe you can find something here: www.indilib.org/forum/ekos/1679-problems....html?start=36#13742

At post #13742 i explain my workflow to use Sony A7S.

I use Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and here the last libgphoto version is 2.5.9.

The last libgphoto version available is 2.5.12 (in this version some bugs for Sony should be fixed...). With help of a friend now i can use 2.5.12 version (Zesty packkage) in ubuntu 16.04 but the problems still remain... So in the end i still use my workflow

Sorry Jasem but my issue remain the same.

i launched update, upgrade and dist-upgrade
restart pc
i start Kstar and Ekos
I open Scheduler, find an object (M42) and open an esq sequence
then i try to crate a mosaic job and i find always the same data (screen shot attached)
If i change rotation, overlap and mosaic grid the "update" button works and i can see the difference in the window; but if i change "Focal lenght" and then click on "update" nothing change and the FOV are always the same.

Hi,

Today i made a test at home to create a mosaic.

My focal lenght is 420 mm. Now, when i open mosaic planner i find 1430 mm (maybe i enter this value the first time that i opened mosaic planner, i can't remeber).

There's no way to have the correct FOV: the parameters of camera are correct and i can only change the value on focal lenght but the FOV don't change and are Always wrong... i tried "udpdate" but nothing change.

Reading the previous posts i tried to create a new setting but in mosaic planner i always find 1430...

The values in Ekos Mount module are always ok with 420mm and also in align module the FOV value is correct...

What's wrong? how can i change this value to create the correct mosaic? is there a setting in Kstar to change?

Maybe i have to solve a capture during live session to have the correct focal lenght value on mosaic planner?

Next week i will buy a GSO RC6 and i would like to made a mosaics some time with both configuration

i use ubuntu 16.04 lts

Thanks

Ekos now automatically switches to FITS while in focus/guide/align and then back to FITS OR RAW when in capture ---> you can set default DSLR format for capture in Ekos options.

Thank you Jasem; i have a question about it: If i choose RAW, the option "autofocus if HFR>...." in capture module works anyway?

I'm thinking this: Use FITS for focus/guide/alignment and RAW for capture. What do you guys think?


This will be perfect for me if the selection FITS/ARW could be made automatically be ekos

You need ARW file again for your test?
