I updated to the recent source, fixed some bugs and also added better logging to scripting gateways (turn driver debugging on to see it). Pls. wait for pull request #538 and try it again with your scripts... Peter

I noticed in your screenshot, that this error appears AFTER the driver was successfully disconnected. I compared the most recent source with the one I use and found

setDefaultPollingPeriod(2000);

in bool DomeScript::initProperties(). I don't know what is it, but I suspect it somehow calls DomeScript::TimerHit() even if driver is disconnected. Jasem, you added it. Any idea why?

No, I don't use linux, I tried it on macOS with slightly modified status.py from dome_script.txt (I saved path to the file to make sure it was set). The parameter can be missing if tmpnam(nullptr) returns NULL (if temporary file can't be generated). That's why I'm asking for permission issues. Peter

Hi, I tested it and it seems to work. status.py is really called with single parameter (temporary file name). Maybe some permission issue? Peter

Yes, that's correct. As a general solution I'll set it to 4 microns what is +/- what can be expected from video camera. Peter

Hi Frank, Atik GP really is PointGrey Chameleon, it is OEM product.

Pixel size is a problem, because this information is not provided by the camera and generally by DC1394 specs. Is it really needed? The same problem is with V4L2 cameras, am I right Jasem?

If it will help, I can set the size to 1x1 instead of 0x0, but real pixel size can't be determined.

Hi Frank, yes, this camera in mode 7 supports longer exposure time. It is limitation of SDK used by INDI driver. The easiest way how to add full support is to use libdc1394, but it was out of scope of Atik SDK. Peter

Hi, I tried it and it seems to work. I suspect, that the problem is, that not every exposure time is actually supported by the camera (max exposure is 0.5s). It is actually IIDC camera and INDI driver uses video mode/format 2/2 (or 5/0 for binning 2x2) so it is limitation of available frame rates. If you want to use longer exposure time you need real IIDC driver which can use mode 7. As far as I know there is no such INDI driver, but you may try INDIGO IIDC driver .

Legacy Atik cameras (Atik16 etc) are not supported by our driver as well. Peter

Hi, what system and what processor is it? This is know problem caused by USB transfer chunk size. If it is not large enough, it will create such artefacts in the image. If it is too large, it will fail on ARM machines. That's why the chunk size is set differently for different platforms. Peter

Probably because ATIK driver is not opensource. Peter
