Hi,

I'm using the CCD Simulator for testing my equipment. When using Binning, the calculation of the PIXSCALE entry is wrong. It's the value you get with binning = 1. If you have higher winnings, the PIXSCALE value should be adjusted accordingly, because the effective pixel scale changes. That's relevant for plate solving.

Am I right ?

Michael replied to the topic 'Question about setting FRAME' in the forum. 1 month ago

Got the answer myself, but still a question left.

The clou: I use the order WIDTH and HEIGHT before X and Y. This causes an error. If I change it to use X and Y before WIDTH and HEIGHT, it runs flawless.

But why is in this XML the order relevant ? All key values are on the same level. XML should be agnostic against the order in this case ???

Cheers, Michel

Hi,

still struggling about an issue with my INDI Client setting a subframe for doing image. If I do send tot set the values, I run into troubles. I watched the XML send to INDI server (EKOS on MAC):

<getProperties version="1.7" />
<newSwitchVector device="CCD Simulator" name="CCD_ABORT_EXPOSURE"><oneSwitch name="ABORT">On</oneSwitch></newSwitchVector>
<enableBLOB device="CCD Simulator">Also</enableBLOB>
<newSwitchVector device="CCD Simulator" name="CCD_COMPRESSION"><oneSwitch name="CCD_COMPRESS">On</oneSwitch></newSwitchVector>
<newSwitchVector device="CCD Simulator" name="CCD_FRAME_TYPE"><oneSwitch name="FRAME_LIGHT">On</oneSwitch></newSwitchVector>
<newNumberVector device="CCD Simulator" name="CCD_BINNING"><oneNumber name="HOR_BIN">1</oneNumber><oneNumber name="VER_BIN">1</oneNumber></newNumberVector>'
<newNumberVector device="CCD Simulator" name="CCD_FRAME"><oneNumber name="WIDTH">3388</oneNumber><oneNumber name="HEIGHT">2712</oneNumber><oneNumber name="X">0</oneNumber><oneNumber name="Y">0</oneNumber></newNumberVector>
<newNumberVector device="CCD Simulator" name="CCD_EXPOSURE"><oneNumber name="CCD_EXPOSURE_VALUE">5</oneNumber></newNumberVector>

As soon as I add the red part in the sending, things go wrong. CCD_Simulator does Subframe directly from EKOS. Does somebody has any idea ?
Any help appreciated.

Hi Rob,
I definitly will try the 2.9.1 solution again, but have no access to the 2.9.1 DMG. Do you know, where to get it ?

Michael replied to the topic 'KStars 2.9.3 is released' in the forum. 1 month ago

Hi Rob, I was in a hurry, I should be more precise:
I use KSTARS 2.9.3 on mac high sierra with INDI server provided by EKOS inside KSTARS using the ccd simulator.
I have an INDI Client connected to this INDI Server taking pictures from another machine. When I do so, I get this log file from INDI Service in EKOS, which basically says error, got no stars and as result the picture seems not be finished correct, but this part is transferred. On the client side a malformed image is received.
If I take a picture from EKOS, no problem. I used KSTARS 2.9.1 in the same setup with no problems. GSC etc is installed (and was installed) and is showing stars, when image is done with EKOS.

Hi Jasem,

i moven on MAC from 2.9.1 to 2.9.3 release and got some problems with CCD Simulator:
Message: Got no stars, is gsc installed with appropriate environment variables set ??
The point is, that I installed with the wizard the GSC, I get images with stars without this message when using EKOS. I just get this message using INDI protocol to get an image. From my point of view this was OK in 2.9.1 ???

Any Idea ?

Hi Jasem,

still have some troubles I only see CCD_EXPOSURE in the received XML, no IPS_IDLE or the other states. Is this related to the CCD Simulator only. Where should I look for this states. Sorry I might be a little bit stupid.

But in any case: Even if it's a setup for the driver, it's really hard not to get the states of a device as a must.

Thanks in Advance

Michael created a new topic ' Question about message frequency' in the forum. 3 months ago

Hi all,

as I started to program a little bit on INDI, I wonder if it is possible to increase the repeat rate of subscribed messages like 'CCD_EXPOSURE', 'CCD_EXPOSURE_VALUE' to get it more often. Actually I see the message come in over IP at every 1-3 second. I would like to show the Exposure timer count down to know how long the exposure will take.

Second question: Is there any chance to get the status of the camera (IDLE, EXPOSING, DOWNLOADING etc.) like it is possible with most ASCOM drivers ?

Any help appreciated.

Hi knro,

sorry about, but have no GDB on the system (don't build it right away). If you can tell me how to get the log, I try.

Another topic: The driver is mentioned a General Driver und DRIVER INFO, but from my point of view should be a weather driver. Does that make sense ?

Hans,

the ASCOM drivers on windows should be able to update the pressure and temp for refraction correction to the mount automatically. Does this your driver, too ?
