That does not take an image! That selects what type of frame you want (Light, Dark, Bias..etc). To take an image, you need to use Ekos to do that.


Ah ok, thanks. I assumed that since it is possible to control the mount from within KStars (slew, track etc) that I would also be able to control the camera in KStars.

So if it is not possible to control the camera in KStars, what is the point of having this selection (Light, Dark, Bias etc) in KStars if I need to open Ekos anyway to take pictures? I can select Light/Dark/Bias in the Ekos module and since it has to be opened in the first place, I don't see the point in having the picture-type selection in KStars? Probably I am missing something here, so please be patient with me :)

Thanks!

Hi all,
today we (a high school student and myself, a planetarium educator) got AstroPi3 to work on a RaspberryPi3. Thanks for the awesome guide and software package.
Our setup is quite simple, we only have one mount/telescope and a Canon 1100D.

While everything works fine, we stumbled upon a minor issue. We can take images using the preview button in the Ekos manager (and we can also save it, using the save button at the bottom of the preview window), but we cannot take a picture from within KStars. Whenever we right click in the KStars main window, and select the Camera to do a Light frame, the camera does nothing. Unfortunately, neither the student nor myself do have a lot of UNIX and/or programming experience.

We are on a headless setup, connecting wia the Raspberry's AP using VNCviewer. I've checked this forum to see whether someone else encountered the same problem, but either nobody else had this problem or I couldn't find it.

Thanks in advance for your help!
David

PS. I thought I posted this message before in the forum, but probably I did something wrong. If it should appear twice, I apologize.

Hi everybody,

beginning Tuesday, today a highschool student and myself (planetarium educator) were able to get AstroPi3 running on a RaspberryPi 3 (headless configuration). Neither of us have much Linux and programming experience so we are quite happy that it worked out. There is just one minor issue:

Our setup is relatively simple, i.e. one mount/telescope and a Canon 1100D. Ekos recognizes both mount and camera just fine.
When we take a "preview" image from within the Ekos menu, everything looks good, we can also save the picture from the preview window. However, when we go back to KStars, slew to an object (which does work fine) and then right click --> Canon DSLR 1100D --> Light nothing happens. How do we take *manually* an image from within KStars?

We've looked in this forum, but either nobody else had this problem or we couldn't find it.

Thanks in advance for your help.
David
