I recommande ASTROIMAGEJ for photometry. It is a great software with very good documentation. You can run a single or multi-aperture photometry, do curve line from exoplanet, etc. It can run together with Kstars capture, looking for and processing new image into a folder.
I would not want Kstars becomes an obese software doing everything and too much complex.
A right tool for a right job !

MORELLI created a new topic ' Canon 450D Indi configuration' in the forum. 4 months ago

Hi everybody,

I use Kstars-Ekos under Ubuntu-Mate 16.04.2LTS.

I can't keep the configuration of the Canon image: Width, Height, pixel size, etc, within the Image Info tab and Image setting tab.

Fields are filled when I fill the camera box the first time. At the next start of Kstars, these fields are filled with 0s and I have to fill again the camera box when I go to the camera screen.

I have found this discussion askubuntu.com/questions/927722/unmet-dep...untu16-04-1-i386-deb about this issue.
The only solution at this time for me, is to discard Wine. it seems impossible to have at the same time, Kstars-bleeding and Wine because libgphoto2.

After my las t update, I get an error at the update end:

Errors were encountered during execution:
/var/cache/apt/archives/libgphoto2-port12_2.5.9-3_i386.deb
E: Subprocess / usr / bin / dpkg returned an error code (1)

and I have 3 broken packages:
- libgphoto2-6:i386
- libsane:i386
- wine 1.6-i386:i386

I have lost most of the Indi drivers in Ekos: I have only the CCD Simulator, DMK CCD and V4L2 CCD. And I can't install indi-full or the indi-gphoto driver or install again Wine.

What is happening ? Thank you for your help ?

My system is Ubuntu-Mate 16.04.2 LTS.

Hello,

While I done polar aligning perfectely, after an update it no longer wants to do it. There is a message about WCS.

The capture & resolution function works perfectly.

MORELLI replied to the topic 'APN image green' in the forum. 6 months ago

I know the mask bayer RGGB. At this time, I compare my experience with those with a windows astrophoto program ATP (AstroToolsPhoto similar with Ekos). Images are captured in RAW format and were not green. Is the green color consequence of conversion RAW -> FITS ?
The second issue is, the image in the FITS viewer shows clearly the object (M13), but the image downloaded onto the HDD shows a very little signal and seems totaly black. The signal appears only with Photoshop process (Level and Curve tools). Is this differnce normal ?

As you can see I am not a pro about this imaging issues.

MORELLI created a new topic ' APN image green' in the forum. 6 months ago

I capture last day M13 with a Canon 450D and Ekos. The image on the screen, into the FIST Viewer, was green. Curiously the FITS image downloaded is black and white, with very little signal . In fact I can see anything and I have to improve the signal with Photoshop in order M13 appears.

So why green ?
And why such difference between the fits viewer and the fits image ?

Thank you for your support.

MORELLI created a new topic ' Independant Software EKOS' in the forum. 7 months ago

Why could Ekos not be an independant application, linked with Kstars (and perhaps others skychart) ? Windows size would be easily set up and more others features.
Specific Canon and Nikkon driver could be created soon ? So, we could dispose automaticaly the image size, the different exposures including, M and Bulb, etc.

Thank you in advance and bravo !

MORELLI replied to the topic 'Ekos Control Panel Tab relocation' in the forum. 7 months ago

I agree Vox45. I have the same screen 1366*768. It is worse with a 7' tablet or smartphone as remote control.

And more, could Ekos be an "independant" feature from Kstars, allowing to manage it like a true software ? In this way, managing windows size should be easier.

I do an update today. I use a SPC900 N&B LX. The driver V4L2 crashes with this message:

"KStars detected INDI driver ini_v4l2_ccd crashed. Please check INDI server log in the device manager."

The only line into the Device Manager is: Using default recorder (SER File Recorder)

MORELLI created a new topic ' Ekos windows size - Directory saved images' in the forum. 8 months ago

Hi,

1/ The size of the Ekos windows seems to be limited when downsizing it. So on my laptop (1366*800) I cannot see the bottom of the windows on to the screen. I have to make the menu bar and the status bar disappearing by default and I wouldn't it. Solution ?

2/ On the laptop I meet a problem with the saved images directory that doesn't occur on my desktop, with the same Kstars-bleedong version.
Into the Photo tab, the Directory fields is not filled with those of the Indi panel Control - Canon DSLR - Options.
The field contains /home/robert and the images are saved into /home/robert /light directory by default and I can change anything. Solution ?
