I believe so, the astrometry files are the recommended, and some smaller ones were just added in case it can help resolve faster.

As things seems to work, the FOV was not directly calculated. I will double check.

Stephen replied to the topic 'INDI/Linux driver for the QHY Polemaster, developers needed.' in the forum. 4 days ago

Yes, this worked for me in my test!

The primary scope is defined and now used for both imaging and guide camera. The guide scope is now fictions (120mm aperture and 480mm FL) and used with polemaster.

Now I just need skies... oh where did they go?

Stephen replied to the topic 'PHD2 and scheduler shutdown...' in the forum. 4 days ago

I will definitely give this a try.

Perhaps some day I will be able to get leaving the guiding as part of the scheduler, checked off in the scheduler. Until this perhaps this can help get dither working for me :)

Stephen replied to the topic 'INDI/Linux driver for the QHY Polemaster, developers needed.' in the forum. 5 days ago

How do I configure for the Polemaster camera to work with the Polar Alignment?

Setup:
1. EdgeHD11 - 2800mm FL
2. ASI1600mm
3. ASI224MC
4. Polemaster
5. using OAG

Issue is that the pole alignment cannot be started due to the FOV reported when combined with the 2800mm focal length.

Is there a way to setup correctly with the polemaster?

Thank you

Stephen created a new topic ' Anyone using the ASI174MM with RPI3 and Ekos' in the forum. 5 days ago

I am looking for a new guide camera to work with my RPI3 using ubuntu-mate and running Kstars and Ekos.

My original thought was to use ASI120mm-s due to price.

I good friend pointed me at this link: www.cloudynights.com/topic/521322-guide-...ra-comparison-chart/

I am wondering about the ASI174mm now too.

I also wondered about the lodestar X2.

Currently I have been using my ASI224mc-cooled and wish to get it onto another scope for imaging :)

Thank you for your thoughts in advance!

Ah, understood.

I am hoping for clear skies before July... sigh. I will test it setup in house and report back though once released.

Thank you

Stephen replied to the topic 'PHD2 and scheduler shutdown...' in the forum. 5 days ago

This is excellent.

I have another issues in that instructing PHD2 to dither when running separate, yet connected to IND, does not happen as mentioned above. Perhaps there is a script solution for this with the CCD.... something to try. I can post back if successful.

Stephen replied to the topic 'Trouble Connecting ZWO/ASI EFW Wheel' in the forum. 6 days ago

I have not been able to determine why local mode does not work. I have reached out to ZWO, and no solutions yet.

To maximize the RPI3 flexibility, look to setup the starting of the indiserver using the INDI Web server: indilib.org/support/tutorials/162-indi-web-manager.html

Ekos can still be used to start the indiserver. This setup lets you also start Kstars on a PC to connect to the RPI3.

Attached is the config I use using INDI Web server. The key is to use localhost as your IP when running report.

Stephen replied to the topic 'Reasonable Align Accuracy for CGEM' in the forum. 6 days ago

Thank you I will check the polar alignment next time.

It is not clear to me if it will allow the Align Tab's solve and slew to get reliably closer than the 60" accuracy, even doing the 30" default would be nice.

I can report back as soon as skies clear. Things are unusually over cast for months with spotty nights once every 2 weeks.

Stephen replied to the topic 'Trouble Connecting ZWO/ASI EFW Wheel' in the forum. 6 days ago

Your systems are the same as mine. I too setup and take down every session.

The key different is that I use INDI web manager to run the server as root, and run Kstars as a user.

The setup I am using right now is in the image.

Perhaps a start a terminal session on the RPI3, and start indi using this:

sudo indiserver indi_asi_wheel indi_simulator_telescope indi_simulator_ccd &

Then connect Ekos using the same profile in the image

This works for me, and simulates the conditions I use for Ekos to start INDI with the INDI Web Manager.

I just tried this on the command line:

indi_setprop "ZWO CCD ASI224MC-Cool.CCD1=ON"

It did not work. Ideas please?

The goal is to turn this check box off using a script so the image from PHD2 is not sent to Ekos.

Stephen created a new topic ' Which property for INDI DATA STREAM' in the forum. 6 days ago

Which of the properties allowed the check/uncheck of INDI DATA STREAM?

The goal is to create an observatory startup script that turns this off on my guide camera when using PHD2.
