If in 1) you mean guiding, not tracking, that would be nice, good suggestion. I believe it does stop tracking to slew already.

Jim replied to the topic 'trouble with eqmod mount disconnecting' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

I have some time running the new retry logic now. It is certainly behaving differently. First, there are no more disconnects! There have been a couple of times where I think it has had to retry, or at least this is a new behavior. It has been 1 time per night this has happened, over the 2 nights I have been able to test. Each time, the mount stays connected, but tracking stops. I can click to have tracking start again, and everything is fine. Guiding wants to keep going, but gives the error that it cannot do anything if tracking is off.

I didn't see it in the log, but is anything recorded when the driver retries the command to the mount?

Last night I had some nice skies, so I tried recording .ser again using my remote setup. I am having the same problem. When directly connected, it records usable files, when remote and hitting the record button, the files end up unusable like the previously attached one.

NUC on scope, remote is a PC, both with latest INDI/Ekos/kstars. Go to streaming in control panel, start watching the stream, stream looks great. Hit record button on stream viewer, no joy.

Jim created a new topic ' Solver UI is missing a handle to resize the configuration' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

It would be cool for hi-res screens to have a handle to be able to resize along the bottom of the configuration panel down to the log output panel. The top of the log has a handle and the log window can be made larger to meet the bottom of the configuration section, but the configuration section in the solver cannot be enlarged down to the top of the log panel. If this does not make sense, please see the attached video. Thanks!

I like that it now goes down to .001 for the expose duration, thanks! The setting display doesn't have enough resolution though, and shows 0 for anything with 3 decimals. See attached.

the 290 and the 1600 work well when directly connected to my laptop. The way I have been trying to record the clips is by pressing the record button on the viewer when viewing remote.

The ASI is attached to a NUC at the scope running INDI and I am remotely streaming to another computer watching the video without any problem. It is on this remote computer I am pressing the record button. I will try to record some frames using the INDI control panel instead of the record button on the viewer and see how it goes.

Jim created a new topic ' astro-smart products with INDI?' in the forum. 3 weeks ago

Hello all,

I have an astro-smart dew heater controller with SQM that I would like to use with INDI/Ekos. There is no support for it, that I am aware of, but I was curious if anyone has played with one? I have only had an opportunity to use the dew heater so far, and it works very well, even without being attached to a computer at all.

Here is a link: www.astro-smart.com/ and here www.astro-smart.com/index.php?p=1_112

the .ser from the simulator appears to work fine. I recorded a .ser and was able to use the frames in siril without problem.

Jim replied to the topic 'Re:trouble with eqmod mount disconnecting' in the forum. 3 weeks ago

In my case, tracking stops when this happens, but the boards must not be resetting as I can manually reconnect and everything works fine. I just have to slew the mount back to the object because of how far it may have drifted depending on how long it was disconnected before I catch it. I am hoping the retry will just reconnect right away and go on about its business. The issues others people have may not be the same as mine though.

Thanks for the quick modification, Jasem, I will try it as soon as I am able. As for the .ser recording, I am able to create the file, but when I go to load the frames into any software, it is as if they are note encoded correctly. No image is visible and some of the frames have lines. I have tried loading them under both windows and Linux, and in siril, and in stakkert. Your files had proper images in them?
