Luca Gervasi created a new topic ' Primaluce lab's focuser (Sesto Senso) reviews? anyone?' in the forum. 1 week ago

Hello,
it seems that Sesto Senso (Primaluce lab's own focuser) drivers has been included in indilib build 1.5.0+ ( www.indilib.org/devices/focusers/sesto-senso.html ).
I'm willing to buy it and i'm looking for reviews.

Is anyone using it? Is it worth it?

Thanks

Luca

I still have the hope that the problem will go away when i attach a powered USB 2.0 Hub.
Still waiting that it will be delivered.

Thanx
Robert

I tried it after reading your message. It doesn't work either, sorry.

Bye

Hello,
I'm using Tapatalk on android to browse all the forums I usually read. Is it possible to have the plugin installed here? Is someone else interested in such implementation?

This BBS seems to be supported (here the link: www.tapatalk.com/download_kunena.php ).

Thanks in advance.

Hi,
Nick said that will create the binary file needed to wrap all the low level protocol (that is not to be disclosed, it seems) sooner or later. So I suppose the driver is in stand-by. :(

Luca Gervasi created a new topic ' QHY 183c cooling is not working and minor glitches' in the forum. 5 months ago

Hello,
i'm using a QHY183c with the indi_qhy_ccd module from the lupinix's repository.
I'm pretty satisfied of the general performances but I have some minor issues:
* I'm unable to set point the peltier nor have the temperature reported (it reports a really big value that seems a MAX_INT).
* I'm unable to have the streaming capability working.

Is this a driver issue (qhy) or indi_qhy_ccd issue?
I'm able to provide all the debug you ask for. I can expose my server if you need.

Thanks
Luca

Luca Gervasi replied to the topic 'Do it yourself focuser: which one?' in the forum. 7 months ago

Hi and thanks to all.
At the moment I' working on the sourceforge's hosted one (there are 2 version in two different repositories from the same author). I'm having some difficulties using his code, it makes my steppers (a nema 17 and a nema 17 PG27 reduction gear) move in a strange way - they move perfectly using some simple code).

I managed to attach the nema 17-PG27 to the focuser in a pretty stable way and now i'm using this guy code and try to find a way do make it usable on my steppers. I preferred the v168 as the Moonlite compatibility layer is fully functional on indi's moonlite driver. As I intend to use it as a "remote hand" for my focuser, i'm implementing the simplest schema (stepper, arduino nano, DRV8825 from pololu and a probe - is it used ?).

Thanks to all :)

Hi Paolo,
it is partially supported (i own one).
You may find it useful my topic here: www.indilib.org/forum/ccds-dslrs/2080-ex...ng-indi-qhy-ccd.html

TL;DR:
Qhy has not yet released firmware with unified low level protocol, so you have to use the libqhy which doesn't fully support it (e.g.: i'm unable to video stream nor set point nor activate the cooler).

Have a nice day :)

Luca Gervasi created a new topic ' Experience with QHY-183c using indi_qhy_ccd' in the forum. 8 months ago

Hello,
i'm going to share my experience with QHY 183c ( www.qhyccd.com/QHY183.html ) using indi_qhy_ccd with my RPi3 astrobox.

Qhy is experimenting with a common firmware layer that should allow us to use their cameras out of the box. Firmware is available in a indilib's repository subfolder ( github.com/indilib/indi/tree/master/3rdparty/libqhy/firmware ) which mimics libqhy sdk.

Once you attach your camera, kernel recognizes it as:

mar 24 15:54:51 astropi kernel: usb 1-1.3: new high-speed USB device number 6 using dwc_otg
mar 24 15:54:52 astropi kernel: usb 1-1.3: New USB device found, idVendor=1618, idProduct=c183
mar 24 15:54:52 astropi kernel: usb 1-1.3: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
mar 24 15:54:52 astropi kernel: usb 1-1.3: Product: WestBridge 
mar 24 15:54:52 astropi kernel: usb 1-1.3: Manufacturer: Cypress
mar 24 15:54:52 astropi kernel: usb 1-1.3: SerialNumber: 0000000004BE

You can then upload firmare image (QHY183.IMG) using this command:
fxload -v -t fx3 -I /usr/lib/firmware/qhy/QHY183.img -D /dev/bus/usb/001/006

Where 001 and 006 can be extracted from the previous paste (mar 24 15:54:51 astropi kernel: usb 1-1.3: new high-speed USB device number 6 using dwc_otg) and confirmed by an "lsusb" command looking for your idVendor and idProduct:
lsusb | grep 1618:c183
Bus 001 Device 006: ID 1618:c183

After loading the firmware (less than 1 second), the devices resets and reconnect as another device:
mar 24 16:07:48 astropi kernel: usb 1-1.3: USB disconnect, device number 6
mar 24 16:07:48 astropi kernel: usb 1-1.3: new high-speed USB device number 7 using dwc_otg
mar 24 16:07:49 astropi kernel: usb 1-1.3: New USB device found, idVendor=1618, idProduct=c184
mar 24 16:07:49 astropi kernel: usb 1-1.3: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0
mar 24 16:07:49 astropi kernel: usb 1-1.3: Product: Q183-Cool
mar 24 16:07:49 astropi kernel: usb 1-1.3: Manufacturer: QHYCCD

Please not that it changed the idProduct (was c183, is c184 now).

The device is usable using indi_qhy_ccd as now (indi-qhy 1.6+r3007~201703232003~ubuntu16.04.1).

In my experience, it is not working as expected (unable to stream, wrong colors and so on), I expect that it will be developed a bit more :)

Hope to help someone.
Bye
