40 should work well.

In looking at your images again, the first one looks like a bright reflection, like a neighbor turning a light on. The second one is a problem I see on a rare occasion as well with my 1600. It hasn't happened enough to cause me a lot of grief, and seemed to happen even less when I turned off the auto-bandwidth checkbox. How often is it happening for you?

I recently switch to compiling and running from master, and am travelling with mine as well. Pretty sure I have used the version that I have compiled, but now am going to double check tonight :) Thanks for the reminder!

I do not have that particular camera, but have seen issues when the bandwidth parameter is set too high. What is yours set to in the camera control panel?

Happy to confirm that with the testing I was able to do, it appears to be working. I started with 16bit settings, capture a preview, click the live video button, it changes to luma and starts the stream, stopping the stream or closing the live window changes it back to 16 bit.

Thanks!

Excellent, will give it a go. Thanks!

Greetings!

There are a few situations where a button press in Ekos changes a setting to allow something to work, this is great. What is not so great is when it doesn't change the settings back and as a user you forget to do it manually and capture the rest of your evening in 8bit. This is no fault of the software, and is 100% on me, but this request is to have such settings snap back to what they were.

My particular example for this request: Set to 16 bit raw, accidentally (or purposefully even) click on live video which changes the settings to those it can stream, stop the live video to go back to more captures. At this point it would be ideal for things to switch back to "capture mode". Today, the live video settings are left in place, and if you do not manually switch camera settings back, you don't capture how you were.

A possibility might be to have a capture mode set of settings defined and a live video set of settings, then switch between them?

Thanks!
Jim

Jim replied to the topic 'ASI Camera - Gain/Offset/x-Bit' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

The gain is there, but with the CMOS cameras like the ASI, gain and offset really are a set that changes together. For example, with my 1600, a gain of 139 and offset of 21 is considered the "unity" setting, but for full dynamic range, the setting is 0 gain and 10 offset.

If space is a premium, and it does seem to be the case for many, if the ASI driver is in use, the ISO field is not used. Might it be possible to re-purpose this field and its label? Merge the ISO and gain slot as those two things largely have the same purpose depending on the camera technology. Then offset can take the space where gain is today?

Jim replied to the topic 'INDI Web Manager launches multiple asi camera drivers' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

Tonight I went in to the INDI machine on the scope and completely cleaned out the old INDIweb installation making sure to remove the startup scripts and systemd stuff. I then installed the new one to make sure I had only the new parts and re-created all of my profiles from scratch. In doing these steps, I seem to have removed the problem so there must have been something still laying around from the old one that was causing problems. I tried about 30 different combination of starting and stopping service from 2 remote machines. All good here. I am running it as my user, not root, and it is working great!

I should have some time tonight (cloudy) to do some better testing and get some logs to open a ticket on Github. I am fairly confident that I have removed the guider from the config and it still starts two instances of the driver, but will double check. I updated to the newer version of INDI web, so will double check that I don't also have some of the first version laying around causing issues.

You could also consider a usb-c to ethernet adapter. You can get a good quality one for about $20-25

Greetings,

I am trying out the INDI web manager in place of indistarter, but having a problem when I use the web interface to start my INDI servers. I have two ASI cameras, one as the primary and one as the guider. Most of the time, but not all of the time, it starts two instances of indi-asi. I have to log in to the INDI local box and kill one of them for things to work correctly.
