Hi all,

I got now a MAC App build for MountWizzard3. So installation in OSX becomes very easy. Download the mountwizzard3.app.zip from GitHub and unzip it to your working dir. Just double click starts the application. No python installation needed anymore !

Hi,

today I tried to get SQM and a Flip Flat in my software to run. Works now. Two topics I discovered:

The SQM Driver reports it's type as General (decimal: 0) but: in selection it its treated as Aux. Other possibility: treat it as weather device.
The Flip Flat driver reports it's type as ??? (decimal: 34304). This value I don't understand.

Nothing big for use, just inconsistent or worrying.

Auto search is off for every device and as you presumed permanent designations to all serial device are made.

Any further hint ?

Hi Jasem,

for some reason now I get the measurements. Why it did not work last 3 time, I don't know. Attached the log. There are some warnings in, but related to other things.
My observations with EKOS so far: When starting INDI Server with auto connect Mostly every second case not all equipment will connect. If I do the second time manually, they work. The upmost critical is SQM (as I had the problem) and MBOX driver as well. This one hardly connect the first time, but can always be connected the second time. The CCD and Telescope drivers work flawless. Never seen a missing first connect.

Could this behavior be tuned (number of automatic reconnects, waiting time, etc.)

With MBOX driver I always get a temperature warning, regardless which temperature limits I had entered.Michel

Jasem,

you're right. I tested it without this, just running EKOS from Stars. Still no connection. I try to check TTYUSBX settings, but it would be nice if you could show your settings.

For the weather service: That would be great, but please take you're time. Many thanks for it!

Jasem,
the tutorial is: indilib.org/develop/indiforjava/i4jdrivers/sqm-lu-driver.html
Yes, there is an open weather service available under: api.openweathermap.org/data/2.5/weather

Hi,

I'm on the way of moving towards an full INDI environment. At that point I struggled on two items I had with ascom running: SQM Sky quality meter and Weather services.

For some reason the tutorial on SQM does not work. I made the steps like the are described, but nothing on metering happens.

Second: There are no more free API keys on weather underground available. Does somebody has open weather etc. running on INDI ?

Thanks in advance,

Michel

All I did with setting the right /dev/ttyUSB link, auto search off, etc. The things I configured in EKOS.....

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
