Will Live Video ever be supported on the ASI cameras on OS X?

knro wrote: This won't work, what if a camera has ISO + Gain + Offset ...etc? At any rate, I implemented a solution, I removed Gain setting and replaced it with a new setting: Custom Properties. So using Custom Properties, you can set any number of properties in the sequence from the list of available numeric properties, but you have to set it first in INDI Control Panel, then "record" it in the sequence then proceed as normal. It should be in v2.8.1 due some time next week.


So if I am understanding correctly. I set the gain, offset, etc... in the Indi control panel, then choose "controls" in the Custom Properties. Now when I add an entry to my sequence it will use the gain, offset, etc... settings I set in the Indi control panel.

Eric Vickery created a new topic ' Issue with Compiling Latest kstars on OS X' in the forum. 1 week ago

In scan render.cpp in the new HIPS section there is an issue that OpenMP is not natively supported in OS X clang yet, so I am getting a compiler error that it can't find omg.h. I fixed the error with the following:
#ifdef PARALLEL_OMP
#include <omp.h>
#endif

I figured I would post it here instead of trying to create any kind of pull request.

The relevant file is KStars/INDI/ServerManager.cpp. Approximately Line 85 or so. You will notice there I added some lines for environment variables for GSC, GPhoto cameras, QHY, and the indiprefix. I do have an ASI camera but not an ASI filter wheel. So I can only test the camera.


I will give it a try. I looked yesterday and didn't see where I had any environment variables set that should make any difference. One thing I did notice is that Ekos uses the FIFO file to start the drivers and I just put them all on the command line, not sure if that could have anything to do with it.

When I run indi server local it doesn't work right on my ASI camera and it doesn't work at all on my ZWO EFW but if I run the embedded indi server from the terminal then it all works fine. Is there something strange about how kstars starts the embedded indi server?

Eric Vickery created a new topic ' Issue with WCS processing in FITs viewer' in the forum. 2 months ago

Since the WCS processing was changed to not automatically process I am getting a seg fault (11) on OS X if I have AutoWCS turned on in the FITS viewer settings and do a polar alignment routine. It fails somewhere in the call FITSData::loadWCS(). I haven't had a change to run it in the debugger to see exactly what is happening.

Eric Vickery replied to the topic 'Issue with Polar Alignment' in the forum. 2 months ago

One of the last updates removed the automatic WCS processing because of some issue on slower machines. I think there is some issues still with the new WCS processing as I am getting a seg fault if the AutoWCS is turned on.

I just ran into this issue. What you have to do is to capture & solve an image (not iduring the polar align routine) then you will get a message about wcs being correct now. Then you can complete a polar align without that error message

Eric Vickery created a new topic ' Guider Settings' in the forum. 2 months ago

I was wondering if there was any documentation that describes how to use the different setting on the guider screen. I have been playing around with the different parts of kstars and the drivers I need and I think I have a pretty good handle on most of it. But I am at a loss on the guider screen. I have a ZEQ25 mount and it's guiding rate is set at 1.0x and when I finally got Ekos to calibrate (had to turn off dec calibration) it seems to be making corrections of +/- 10arc-sec each time (always the opposite direction of the last correction). Thanks for any help you can provide.

knro wrote: Use FindINDI.cmake from here: github.com/KDE/kstars/blob/master/cmake/modules/FindINDI.cmake

It should define INDI_CLIENT_LIBRARIES which you can link to.


That worked great, thanks.

Eric Vickery created a new topic ' Custom Driver CMakeLists.txt Question' in the forum. 3 months ago

I am very new to CMake and I am at a bit of a loss.

I need the indiclient lib in my project but if I try find_package(indiclient REQUIRED) CMake cannot find it but I just include indiclient in my target_link_libraries line it works fine but I'm thinking that is not the correct way to do that.

Can anyone shed any light in the subject for me?

Thanks,
Eric

I would really like to see a build number or something similar so, as you said, it would be easier to make sure you are running the correct version.

Wasn't sure which logs or where to find them so I just attached the app output from QT Creator for a run of kstars when the filter wheel didn't work.

I was trying out the new build and all of my equipment worked except for my ASI filter wheel, which does work with CloudMakers INDI server.

My equipment is:
Mount - ZEQ25
Main Camera - ASI1600MM-C
Guider Camera - ASI178MM
Filter Wheel - ASI EFW8
Focuser - Rigel nStep (Soon)

I have made a small change that puts a splitter in between the log view and the rest of the screen and now I would like to submit a patch for possible approval but I'm not sure how.

I have used git a good bit but only on repos that I have rights to and just do normal commits and pull requests.
