Hi Jasem,

finally I made it. It was not a SW issue. I had problems with power supply on USB when switching light on. If I correct this, it's running.
Thanks for your help !

Michel

PS: How can I use the same parameters I set with EKOS to use the INDI server headless (based on indiweb) ?

Hi,

I got some log now. I had not EKOS running but only the server itself. I used the web manager. So I started using EKOS to get the logs. I attached them, but I cannot really "read" them to get some insights:

Yes it is.
The setup is ubuntu mat 16.04. on a raspi3. I have a QSI (USB) and a mount (ethernet) connected. I had a stick station with MBOX driver, but remove this to countercheck, no difference.
I tried to enable logging on flip flat, but it's Re-disabling debug logging immediately.
I have a micro touch focuser as well (wich might also have a USB to serial converter). This works well.
I removed it and tried again. I had a short flashlight on flip flat panel, but there again this message.
At least this points in the direction you mentioned.
What could I do about it ?

Hi,

I tried to move my equipment to INDI. It worked so far. Bit I run into some problems using an Alnitak Flip Flat.
I have it in config. I could open and close the cap. I get the status.

But when I would like to switch the light on (which could be only done correctly when closed), the it does not light (it's OK, I counterchecked) and I get this error message:

2018-05-31T18:24:58: [ERROR] >S000 error: Write Error: Input/output error.

Anybody could help ?

Thanks in advance,

Michel

Hi,

after having some late tests under real sky, I put MountWizzard3 beta0 online.

Some notes about this package:
- It is beta ! Thankful I had the support for testing in alpha time from Barry, Hans, and Willem-Jan, but still there is a limited sight of different environments.
- My software is far from perfect and never will be. So and feedback welcome. Please add the log file and screenshots / videos etc. if you found bugs.
- MountWizzard3 should be able to install an run in parallel to MountWizzard2.6 release. But please choose a separate working directory!
- As it is now multi platform, the distribution folder has now three entries: Two EXE (one with command console open) for Windows 7/10 and a tar.gz file for
Mac and Linux. Still if you want, you could install it directly in windows, when you have python 3.6.5 32 bit installed. On windows this improves loading time.
- It does not support connection via driver, so you have to have a ethernet / IP connection to your mount.
- The documentation is as well on GitHub. Please have a look to this. I try to complete all the things, but give it a try. Some functions could be seen on the sneak preview videos.
- The software is as is: Please take care and use it on your own risk !

- Please report back in GitHub under Issues.

Now finally where to find it:

github.com/mworion/MountWizzard3-DIST

Hope you have productive nights,

Michel

Hi,
first 2.5 branch does not support indi, it will be available on MountWizzard3. You saw videos from alpha versions of MW3.
Actually automating the process is exactly what MountWizzard3 does. Just one button press and you get a new model in your mount. There is a remote shutdown feature build in in case you would like to close all programs remotely.
The point is if you are doing model build, especially outside, there is the need of manual interaction for polar alignment necessary by turning knobs. So this can't be automated (at least with low effort).

Jasem,

my fault. Some applications write PIXSCALE, INDI does not. So have to calculate this anyway.

Hi,

long time no sign from further developments. But development still went on. For that reason I would like to give you a sneak preview of the next version 3:
It is still in alpha for testing.
MountWizzard3 runs on Windows10, Linux and Mac OSX with the same functionality.

Main topics were to go for multi platform, increase model making and handling speed, integration INDI framework especially for non windows users and adding support for profiles.
The videos are mainly made on windows, but there are 2 showing the usage on Mac and Linux as well. There is no difference in GUI and features between platforms.

The videos are on youtube, you will find them:
