Wouter van Reeven replied to the topic 'Best way to use Stellarmate from the field?' in the forum. 4 days ago

I don't use StellarMate but I do use a Raspberry Pi with VNC from my iPad and it works like a charm. I bought a lightning to eth adapter to connect my iPad directly to the RPi3 via a fixed ip address.

Have a look at the /boot/config.txt on the StellarMate to change the display resolution.

Wouter van Reeven replied to the topic 'How to tighten internal guiding?' in the forum. 4 days ago

It depends mostly on the focal length of your guide scope. With 160 mm I get guide RMS of around 1.1" and with 280 mm I get 0.7". I use all default values except for 2x2 binning (instead of 1x1 binning == no binning).

Wouter van Reeven replied to the topic 'Lost star when dithering causes capture module to hang' in the forum. 7 days ago

I noticed that the objects I was imaging slowly moved out of the FOV when using a 12 pixel dither after each image. So I will decrease the number of pixels significantly, perhaps to 4 or so. But the guide star was never lost despite me using a 32 pix box.

What happens if you cover the lens or opening above the chip? Does the image become darker or black?

Wouter van Reeven replied to the topic 'ZWO ASI 120MM-S Not Working From StellarMate' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

I am sure the answer is yes, but did you flash with the correct image? You need to use the mm image, not the mc image.

If it is a USB2 camera then it is an ASI120MM, not an ASI120M-S because that’s USB3. Please search this forum because there were several topics with the details for how to flash the camera. FYI I tried with mine and it didn’t work. In the end I bought a USB3 version and that works like a charm.


Clear skies, Wouter

I am using the stable build and updated to the latest version. It still isn't working. See the attached screenshot.

Wouter van Reeven replied to the topic 'GPhoto CCD Upload Settings' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

I finally had time to try this out and I think I may be doing something wrong because it is not working. In Indi Control Panel -> GPhoto CCD -> Options I set the specific directory under Upload Settings but in the CCD & Filter Wheel tab in Ekos still the default is displayed. The same for Image Format which I set to Native in Indi Control Panel -> GPhoto CCD -> Image Settings but it still shows as Fits in the CCD & Filter Wheel tab. See the attached screenshots.

I use the main telescope with DSLR attached for polar alignment and I found that it doesn't matter what the orientation of the camera is. This is with 2.9.5 though and haven't been able to try 2.9.6 yet.

Thanks, I'll give that a try.

It probably depends on the setup and would require testing but how many seconds would you typically recommend for the settle down time?

I think we should open a new topic for the white square in the task bar and workspace switcher. I will do so tomorrow because we are setting up telescopes now for another imaging session.

Wouter van Reeven replied to the topic 'Re:KStars icon missing in my LXDE environment.' in the forum. 1 month ago

Same here. Abelink and I tried running different flavours and versions of Ubuntu in virtual machines and whatever we try, the KStars icon doesn't appear in the bottom panel (where all running applications appear) nor in the workspace switcher. When I run Firefox, it does show the Firefox icon in those two places. See the attached screenshot. It looks like something ay have changed with Ubuntu Bionic preventing the icon from showing up or needing the icon to be added to a directory where it isn't now.

However, when I compare the output of "dpkg -L firefox | grep icon" and "dpkg -L kstars-bleeding-data | grep icon" then the only differences I see are
- Firefox uses an SVG icon and KStars SVGZ
- Firefox places the icons in /usr/share/icons/hicolor/symbolic and KStars in /usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable

Simply copying the kstars.svgz file to /usr/share/icons/hicolor/symbolic didn\'t solve the issue though...
