OK, the first thing that came to my mind was to make the CCD_INFO property configurable. But I know too little about the indigo architecture if this is possible or makes sense at all...

I did the following:
- downloaded indigo from github
- added the following in indigo_ccd_iidc, line 258:

CCD_INFO_PIXEL_SIZE_ITEM->number.value = CCD_INFO_PIXEL_WIDTH_ITEM->number.value = CCD_INFO_PIXEL_HEIGHT_ITEM->number.value = 3.75;
- compiled everything

This seems to work, I know that this is a personal hack and not a general solution ;-)

Best regards,
Frank

Hi Petr, just another quick question: The Atik GP shows up as a "Chameleon CMLN-13S2M" device but with pixel size set to zero. Will this be a problem using it in the Ekos guiding module (I'm afraid it will)? If yes, is there any way to configure the correct pixel size?

Hi Petr,

I tried the INDIGO IIDC driver and exposures > 0.5s work! I am using indigo_server from Ekos, starting the server from the shell with

indigo_server --indi-driver /usr/bin/indi_eqmod_telescope indigo_ccd_atik indigo_ccd_iidc

Thank again!
Frank

Hi Peter,

Thank you for your reply. You are right, in the last days I have only tried longer exposures but never ones shorter than 1s. It works as you described, using 0.5s returns image data. I haven't exactly understood this limitation, as I am using 3s exposures on my Windows / ASCOM / PHD2 setup with this camera (following PHD's recommendation to use longer exposures to average out seeing effects).

So at least I know now that it's not a problem related to some settings in my installation.

Hello out there,

I'm relatively new to INDI and Ekos, and trying to get my setup running. I have an Atik One 6.0 OAG and Kubuntu 17.10 (i386). After installing the Atik INDI drivers (atikccd-1.26-i386.deb), and in addition the libnova-0.14 package, the "main" Atik CCD works fine in Ekos, including image capture, temperature setting and filter wheel. The OAG camera which is an Atik GP shows up as connected, but all exposures (when selected in the capture module or in the guide module) run into a timeout and never return any image data. I have tried only to connect to this camera, have used a direct USB connection to my laptop (without going through the Atik One build in USB hub) and I also have played with the buffer sizes in the camera options. Nothing solved the problem and I'm running out of ideas right now.

Has anybody run into similar problems or any other ideas how to solve the problem? My only last idea which I haven't tried so far is a complete reinstallation back to Kubuntu 16.04...

Best regards,
Frank
