Dear all,
I experienced the same problem with Raspbian Jessy and tightvnc. Switching to RealVNC on the Raspberry resolved the issue.

Cheers

Aaah, good to know! I wasn't sure and hence I tried to build it on my own.

The configuration dialog for switching between the internal astrometry.net solver and a locally installed version is slightly misleading. Activating the check box I would expect that the entered path will be used. Instead, it disappears and displays "Internal Solver".

Hi,
since homebrew does not provide astrometry.net any more, I was forced to build it on my own. The build seemed to succeed, but I received the same error message as you. Installing pyfits solved the problem.

Thanks a lot

Wolfgang Reissenberger created a new topic ' icons missing' in the forum. 3 weeks ago

Hi,
I just managed to build KStars with Ekos on Raspbian. Everything seems to be fine except that some icons are missing. For example, the icons for managing the profiles are not present.

Could somebody give me a hint where these icons come from? It seems like a certain package is missing - but which one?

Cheers

Good news, the filter wheel is back!!

Yesterday I got contact to the Moravian support. They asked me to verify under Windows, whether the filter wheel was really turning. Well, I thought, that is an easy exercise, since the filter wheel makes the characteristic sound when the driver under Windows is initialized. It turns once around to put it filter no. 1 in position.

But although the sound occurred, the filter wheel was not detected under Windows. APT for example claims to detect it, but it was not able to change the filter. SIPS on the other hand claimed 0 filters.

OK, now I new, that the problem occurs as well under Windows. The next step was to open the filter wheel case - and here I found the problem. The rubber belt around the filter wheel had slipped off the wheel. I put it back in place and the next test showed the filter wheel back.

So in the end, it was a "simple" mechanical problem, no software problem at all.

No the stress test with my Raspberry can continue. I want to check whether the USB power directly delivered is stable enough.

Cheers

Hi Jassen,
I checked several options:
- indilib version 1.6.0, 1.6.1, 1.6.2 on Raspbian
- indilib version 1.6.2 on x64 debian 9 on intel i7-5557U (Mac OS using Parallels)

Unfortunately all with the same result - no filter wheel detected :angry:

Currently no feedback from Moravian received.

Cheers
Wolfgang

Hi Jasem,
I crosschecked it under Raspian with the current versions of indilib retrieved from Github - same result. The filter wheel tab is not displayed.

The tab is named "MI CCD G2-8300" - which is the correct name of the CCD camera - see attached screen shot.

Dear all,
I am currently struggling with the configuration of EKOS with the filter wheel of my Moravian G2-8300.

My setup:
- Raspberry PI 3b
- Ubuntu Mate 16.04
- indi-full version 1.6.2~201801281219~ubuntu16.04.1
- indi web manager on Raspberry
- KStars running on Mac OS

My astro hardware:
- Avalon M-zero
- Moravian G2-8300 with external filter wheel
- Loadstar X2

The problem: when I connect to the G2-8300, it works almost completely. The only thing missing is the tab containing the filter wheel settings.

I cross checked it under Windows. The Filter Wheel is recognized under the ASCOM driver.

The very odd thing: yesterday, it worked. When I restarted the system today, the filter wheel did not show up. I made an entire reset to the installation, but unfortunately no change.

Any hints?

Cheers
Wolfgang
