Hi!

I recognized, that there were somehow, somewhere 2 different resolutions given for my canon 5dIII. I had some Canon_ccd_blablabla errors on sturtup of indidriver, but the cam still works. Today and yesterday, this error did NOT occur anymore. I think that lies on my new laptop, and Jasem, who did a great supporting Job via Teamviewer on my new laptop. I must admit that i am a total noob on Linux...
What works for me in case of solving problems, and a mount, that drives down the floor is, like Jasem and Eric mentioned, to clear all the mount model data and start from scratch. The galaxys residing right in the zenith atm, force me to sometimes get the mount hit the tripod, even with my tripod extension. Thats the main reason, that goto/solving does not work anymore. But since i clear the data, in case of need, it works like a charm :-)

cheers
Niki

Checked yesterday the time and found out, that there indeed was a wrong time displayed in the main window on the left upper side. Changed that time then to the right. But in the indi drivers page where i set up the time, it still remains utc 3. it was not a problem yesterday but is it right? I always get confused, when its about time in such environments.

Cheers Niki

One question i have. When i have to set UTC offset, what is right?
I mean when i google for UTC offset austria, it tels me CET or UTC +2
the offset in EKOS is 3
Is it right? or do i have to change? And if so, how?

cheers

OMG i found this thread by coincidence, but i had this yesterday too. I was trying to solve, and testet ON THE CAMS DISPLY before and jupiter was shown. Then i started Solve&sync, the cam took a picture, and it was NOT jupiter on... So i thought WTF? and then solver timed out, took new picture and there jupiter was.
Also i recogniced that often, when starting indi, i get the message, that ccd driver crashed, though the cam is online and works... Strange...

cheers, niki

Oh this is great! Thanks Jasem!

And yes, that is EXACTLY what happened yesterday. I klicked on Park and though it allready was in park-position, it started to slew fast in a total strange position...
that´s where i stopped then and went to bed.

the.cakemaker replied to the topic 'Re:Plate solving issue in EKOS' in the forum. 4 days ago

Great Eric. I will try that today.
For my understanding:1. The solving-time depends on where my telescope points to? It is NOT always the same, or should be?
2. The "List" of solved (or even NOT solved) locations AFFECTS the mount model? So it is a good choice to clear it when there is a problem?
Because i never did so...
3. There is NOT a "mechanical zero position" inside a mount like the EQ6-r?
4. I downloaded ALL Astrometry.net Data files. The thought was for the future, and different Telescopes (or Camera Lenses), and naturally, that
i don´t come into the situation that i have to download it in the session-night.

Thanks so far.

Cheers
Niki

Hi!

Very interresting aspcets Eric.

So how do i clean up my whole setup? I was to angry yesterday and had to stop and go to bed... No rational decisions able anymore...

I tryed to set new parking position too in the night, so this will not be good anymore too.

So how to start today?

As usual? Weights down, Telescope straight to polaris? And then?

Start indi. But how to "clear or clean" the system to start from scratch?

@ Jasem. What do you mean "thats not possible with most mounts" What is not possible? Build a mount model? Because until yesterday, i never made a mount model at all. Should i?

The precise question for today is: How do i clean everything up to start from scratch?

cheers
Niki

Hi Jasem!

No sorry, i did not make logs because i believe that its not a software issue...
I think i make a fault here. But i do not know where.
I have the thesis, that it has got to do with the fact, that the EQ hit the tripod, and so the mechanics believe in another position, than the software. And so, solving is getting hard because it differs to much...
thats why i explained it so accurate

cheers, niki

Yesterday was really frustrating. And i habe some quite funny issues. I don‘t know why bit i did not manage to hit my targets anymore, since it worked so well the other time.
Maybe it has to do with thebfact, that my eq „hit“ the tripod without my notice for quite a time?
Yesterday i starzed new several times. I put the eq to face weights straight down and the newton to Polaris, what always is my park position.
Then i tryed to solve and sync. But the solver times out... several timess... so i tryed jupiter because it was so easy to test with. I take apreview pic and jupiter is right in the middle. But the red crosshair icon says the eq points to somewhere else... ??? So i solve. That works and the white rectangle is right over jupiter. So i think „OK“ now we are aligned good. So i move to m66. And now it‘s getting strange. The crosshair points WAY far away from the point i chose. So i solve with „solve and track“. Solving works and the white rectangle points somewhere in the middle between the red crosshair and the target... and it says „...not accurate, slewing, solving, andsoon“ but it moves just around a bit, far far away from the target.

I got totally confused and had to stop my session with perfect clear skyes.

And when i said park, it moved to strangest positions yesterday, almost cutting my cables...

Is there a way to set my eq-6r to „zero“ or „null“ so i can start from scratch?

How can it be that i say „go jupiter“ take picture with OBVIOUSLY Jupiter on the screen, and the crosshair says nonono, your somewhere else, totally?

I even started the „mount model process“ but the system was not able to solve the pictures.

Atm i am really desperate,maybe someone knows help.

Cheers, Niki

Wanted to get me in here too. Plate solving, whether on or offline takes about 1,5 minutes here. I find that very long. How
Long would be „normal“? Cheers

Tried that recently... no effect...

I have no ideas anymore. The whole kstars is useless now.

How do i deinstall the whole program on ubuntu? I don´t know how to do so...

the.cakemaker replied to the topic 'Re:Canon 5D3 over kstar/ekos : indi crashes, no capture' in the forum. 1 week ago

I have to check that later... Did it yesterday, there it was of no use...
After the updates of the system i made today, Sudo apt-get update and Sudo apt-get upgrade, the cam is crashing with a crash report on the cameras screen, which is totally new...

Tryed the things Jasem wrote on the first page too, and now it seems to me i messed the whole thing totally up...

Maybe you guys have a suggestion for me, for a total new installation? ATM i use Lubuntu, on a dedicated machine just for controlling the whole thing, i wouldn´t mind to install another distribution if someone thinks that could help. But i would not know what...

Hi!

Here is the logfile. The crash is shown on the very end.

also i get the message now "KStars detected INDI driver indi_canon_ccd crashed. Please check INDI server log in the device manager"

Since i am not very firm on Linux, where do i find this Device Manager? So i can check the log...

I have to admit that unlike the otzer people with this problem, i had no issues at all with my canon 5DMarkIII at all, until yesterday...

Only thing i did was to accept the system update, that was prompted...

cheers
Niki

I learnt a lot about the gphoto lib with this and it's highly appreciable. !!

So you right in mRaw & jpg it was all OK (except with the dev-driver that i found today) -- but honestly i did not try the sRaw before, for me if mraw&jpg were fine the sraw should have beeen also....
But making the full detailed test for the tmpfiles.. i discovered the sraw doesnt pass to the rpi3 ! Strange....

I posted the same results to gphoto issue team.. keeping finger crossed it will give thdm some ideas !

I will keep posted any progress here for the sake of the community and if anybody has the same issue .. (i would love to know if anybody with 5d3 & pi3 get same results btw ..)

Best regards,
Pask


I have to tell, that i have the same Problem from today on. Worked like a charme since about 5 months, but today the issue began. Cant save file, file is no raw image, everything like discribed in this thread. The only thing i made was a system-update... no way to get a preview...
