I had to figure out how but I built libindi and then Eqmod and joystick control is now working.
Thank you!

Now, how do I get back to the production build once this is incorporated?

Some info that I hope is helpful.
After looking some more I noticed that in Indi control panel the driver info on Astroberry shows 0.3 and on Astropi3 it shows 0.4, for EQMod.
Astroberry does not strop tracking with joystick input. So this was working in 0.3.

I tried to build and have the same error.

Ah ha. Found another person reporting the same thing. I confirmed what he said. If you use the Mount Control to skew and then joystick it will reengage tracking.

A couple issues on my last session.

Now just to figure out why I can see the Bayer mask. Still scratching my head on that one.
Also, can’t figure out why video is black and white and images are color.

Rob, after looking some more I noticed that in Indi control panel the driver info on Astroberry shows 0.3 and on Astropi3 it shows 0.4, for EQMod.
Looks like the ZWO driver is older on Astroberry too. I wonder if that is why I'm not seeing the bayer mask squares. I think I'd like to use your image, AstroPi3, because it seems a little faster, but need to resolve these things.
Is there a way to install the older driver?

Does this happen on just one mount or any mount? You can use the mount simulator or simulate a different mount that you don’t have by turning on the simulator in the driver settings. Does it happen right away or when you do certain things with the joystick? Does it turn off again if you turn tracking back on? Can you try getting a log file while the error is happening?

Thanks, Rob


Hey Rob.
I tired using the simulator and this does not happen. Which tells me that something is different with the INDI EQMOD drivers used by Astroberry than with AstroPi3 or from what I installed in Raspbian Stretch. Agree? Is there a way to tell what drivers are installed?

Tracking stops as soon as you use the joystick to slew the mount. In the simulator as soon as you stop using the joystick tracking resumes. I can see that in the log also.

I created a video showing these steps.
Using PI running AstroPi3 and Orion Sirius mount with joystick connected to pi
1. Launch Kstars
2. Connect to INDI Server
3. Track an object
4. Use Joystick to slew mount
5. Status goes to Idle and Tracking stops

Using PI running AstroPi3 and Telescope Simulator mount with joystick connected to pi
1. Connect to INDI Server
2. Track an object
3. Use Joystick to slew mount
4. Status returns to tracking

The video is on this dropbox link.

Hey man. Just getting around to trying this. I loaded Unbutu and your script. Very cool. Love the dashboard with the system stats!
I’ve got the same problem with this install that I have with Raspbian Stretch. Using the joystick control makes tracking stop. I’ve also been playing with Astroberry and that’s the only install that doesn’t seem to do this. Any suggestions?
Also, when viewing live video from my ASI224MC I see squares on the image. I’ve compared the settings and they look the same as Astroberry. Not sure what to adjust.
Any help is much appreciated.

Ok guys. Let me first apologize. I was trying out 2 different things and ended up confusing them
1. Raspberry Pi running Stretch with INDI drivers installed
2.Raspberry Pi running Astroberry Unbutu Mate

The problem is on Stretch. With just the INDI drivers I can connect Kstars client to the pi INDI server. I can control the mount correctly, but joystick input stops the tracking.
This does not happen with Unbutu Mate Astroberry.

I reloaded the SD card with Astroberry and joystick is working.
I also connected to it from my desktop from Kstars and joystick is working.

How can I tell if it’s EQMod or Ekos or INDI? I have the joystick control configured in Ekos. The game pad is connected to the raspberry pi running the INDI drivers.

Update: I started with a brand new SD card and a fresh download of the image. First thing I tried was to update and it failed. Couldn’t access temp.
I connected Ethernet and was able to connect to my network. Ran update and upgrade with success.
Ran wlanconf and it failed.
Ran wlanconf-GUI and had no options.
Ran wlanconf and it succeeded! Don’t understand why but it did. I’m now connected wireless to my network and can still connect wirelessly to astroberry.

Now to connect the mount and camera and see if it still works.

It is not clear to me which Raspberry Pi you have. Only the Raspberry Pi 3 models and the Zero W model have built in WiFi.
Also what distribution are you using, Raspbian supports the most recent 3+ but others may not.
If it has wifi then it is most likely not compatible with the hardware.
You should be able to connect to the network router with an Ethernet cable, which would be a good starting point to confirm that networking is functional.

I have a Pi3 model B as printed on the board. It does have WiFi on board. I know the WiFi is working because the hotspot is created and I can connect to the hotspot from my computer.
I’m using the image provided by Astroberry that is Ubuntu Mate.
I’ll try the suggestion of using an Ethernet cable.

HelgeMK wrote: Sorry, I was too fast with my response, ignored the second screenshot. The WiFi stick should not be necessary. Did you make any changes to the wlan config files? Sometimes creating a fresh image can help. With the mentioned command I never had any issues to connect.

I did not change any files. Thought about the fresh image and tried that as well. I know the WiFi is working because the hotspot is created and I can connect to the hotspot from my computer.

I setup a raspberry pi with Ubuntu Mate. I enabled the joystick control and I’m able to move the mount with the joystick, but when I do tracking stops. Is tracking supposed to stop or resume automatically?
