Chris replied to the topic 'iEQ45 GTN 8407 and 8406' in the forum. 6 days ago

Finally have time to pick up the AF hobby and start using EKOS again.
Updated to the latest versions and saw a lot of improvements in there, really nice to see!

I have the 8406 and 8407 on my desk with which I can test :).
I saw a seperate driver is created for the 8406 which seems to work ok, need to check in detail coming days.

For the 8407 I still have an issue with parking. When starting up an pressing the park button nothing happens except ekos changes de RA and Dec of the mount but doesn't slew to it. I added the logs. The 8407 has no option for setting the parkposition as I red in the documentation. It's either east or west side where it slews to depening on which side the mount is at the moment that he park command is executed.

In the logs I see the wrong commands are used for parking, below the correct ones.

Command: “:AP#”
Response: “0” Un-parking state, “1” Parking state.
This command gets the parking status.

Command: “:MP0#”
Response: “1”
This command un-parks the telescope.

Command: “:MP1#”
Response: “1”
This command invokes the parked mode. In parked mode, the telescope cannot slew, track, and
guide unless a un-park command is issued.
Caution: Any movement caused by hand controller will make the telescope into un-park state.


Last year I created a document with whishes for the iEQ45 2013 and earliers models and knro worked on this. Actually all is implemented except for two items (pierside and goto zero position). Those two together with the park option should be nice to have.

Is someone able to add/fix those features?

@nmac did they explain why they switched lines? In order to correct this, the lines should be switch on just one side (T7M side)?

@silver, saw your message just a moment ago after I commented on your thread: www.indilib.org/forum/mounts/2600-driver....html?start=12#20716

Didn't checked this forum for a while :)

You have already succes with the 8406?

Chris replied to the topic 'Driver for Ioptron Ieq45 with 8406 Hand Controler' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

@silver and @nacho, great that you are working on the ieq45 8406 suport.
Jasem added support for the 8407 (2013 and earlier iEQ45 models) the beginning of this year, The driver was based on the zeq25 and is available as "ieq45" in the mount list.

Because I couldn't check and work with my mount and ekos I didn't checked this from may until november.
I see that a mount control dialog is added which is nice!

I've bot 8406 and 8407 version of the ieq45 mount. I thought one driver should run them bought?
When I use the 8406 with ieq45 8406 driver I also do see some unknown commands that are not mentioned here: www.ioptron.com/v/ASCOM/GOTONOVA_Command_LanguageV1.01.pdf

Also parking, goto zero position and pierside are features I'm looking forward to. Parking functionality in the current version looks like go home function.

I'm avalaible for testing.

Regards,
Chris

Chris replied to the topic 'QHY5 - alccd5 mono distorted images' in the forum. 8 months ago

Hey,

Using my qhy since 2 years and don't know better than it's always just plug and play when ascom drivers and qhy drivers are installed. But they probably improved some cause your experience with it doesn't sound that good :).

ZWO ASI 120 MM seems a good price/quality cam! Thanks for that.
Ofcourse I prefer not buying a new one but using my current, but not sure what you guys can do for me based on the documentation of the readout of the qhy5v?

Hi Wolfi,

Late response, but what did you actualy mean with "my QHY 5 under windows is even more of a pain"?
My QHY5v does work perfect under Windows.

A new response via QHY forum DM between me and Qiu:

I just viewed the soucecode of our crossplatform SDK and the QHY5V support has not been add. So currently the QHY5V can not be support by current SDK. But we have the document of the QHY5V readout. If need we can publish this document to the opensource community.


Really don't know who the opensource community is and who could help me further..
Also really no idea about the effort it would cost to add support for it.
At the end if support won't come.. what will be the best quality / lowcost guidecam that is supported by indi?

Regards,
Chris.

here some logs. i noticed that when I connect the date on mount is set to 2048.
In this log I only connected, changed slew speed to 9 and moved to west a bit.

Hope you can see why RA and DEC remain zeros.

Got this response on the forum. What exactly does this mean?

Hello,

On linux there is no concept of system driver. It is the communication protocol between camera and the host . We now is making a new low level protocol standard for our cameras to let the cameras working under other systems. We can put the QHY5V into this todo list to make this protocol . And then the indi developer can use this protocol to communication with camera.

Best regards,
Qiu Hongyun

Anyone knows if qhy could write the correct driver? Or are there no other options?

Hi Jasem.

Already found the logs :).
Below the log until from starting indi till connecting the mount. I didn't send any command yet.
In windows I choose the ascom driver "iOptron Ascom driver for 2013 and earlier models".
