Awesome! I implemented this option appr. a month ago. I am very glad that it is useful for others not only for myself! :)

As a temporary solution, you can go to the INDI settings inside KStars and select "Message notifications". This option will turn the INDI dialog boxes to desktop notifications. They will be still annoying, but the computer will be more usable until the root of the problem is fixed.

Thanks for the suggestions.
Always happens, but now I looked into the statistics and the pixels of the "glow" effect have very low intensity. This seems to be normal, it just looks weird because of the auto-stretch function of the FITS Viewer in KStars.

I use the factory default 40 because I read in an other forum topic that it should not be changed.

Check if you accidentally switched away the knob from Manual mode (M). That can be also a reason for cryptic error messages from gphoto.

Hi,

I bought a ZWO ASI185MC and I get strange FITS frames with INDI on a Linux laptop and on Raspberry Pi. When I use SharpCap on Windows, the frames seems to be okay. I played with exposures 2-6 seconds, varied the settings back-and-forth for an hour, the end result seemed to be always bad, sometimes just black frames. I attach two samples.

Any idea what is wrong or what can I try?

Csaba Kertesz replied to the topic 'INDI QHY driver and QHY5III174' in the forum. 1 month ago

I don't know this particular camera, but I given up on QHY. I have a 5P-II-c camera what basically does not work with RPI3, especially if you want to use ethernet connection because theRPI's ethernet chip sits on the USB bus and QHY stops working immediately. I tried everything, it just does not work. Now I sell this camera and switch to ZWO ASI185MC. The ZWO is also a Chinese brand and their camera use the same CCD chips like QHY. But according to my research on the internet, ZWO can do HW design correctly, unlike QHY.

Niko, others can correct me if I am wrong, but I think you use the wrong driver. EQMod is for EQ mounts connected with EQDir cable. With handcontroller, you should use Synscan driver.

Yes, my last option was that you have a corrupted filesystem. If you have not reinstalled the backup, you can try to force a filesystem check:

sudo touch /forcefsck

And reboot the Pi:

sudo reboot

The Pi will do a filesystem check during the next boot. It may go for a long time and you should connect the Pi to a monitor to see if it wants any user intervention during boot.

You can try a:

make clean
make -j2

or maybe it is a broken update?

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade

I don't have any build problem with Raspian and Raspberry Pi. Maybe some other user with RPi+Ubuntu Mate can share the experiences.
