... but there are some problems with the service ... read the thread.
Hi there, hi Kaczorek,
I am wandering and didn't find anything about:
- Running astroberry "headless" - only start the indiserver with the given Ekos configuration
- In the gui -> Autostart KStars (no problem), but then autostart Ekos after KStars and Indi with a default profile
P.S.: I am doing my first workshop for others about KStars and the astroberry-PI Thanks for your great work Kaczorek.

Firefox seemed to allow successful access to the site after adding an exception for the certificate error. I have my own private Certificate Authority and was able to generate a new certificate that works fine in all browsers. I believe the issue with your certificate is that the CA cert and Web Server cert share the exact same Common Name. This causes the Subject and Issuer fields of the Web Server cert to be the same which should only occur with self-signed root certificates (the CA cert). When a browser sees this, it tries to verify that the digital signature coincides with the Issuer's public key; in this case, it checks against the Web Server's public key instead of the CA's public key, causing it to fail.
I believe that simply adding something like an OU to the Common Name of the Web Server cert will fix this (requires generating new certificate of course).
@admins: Speaking of certificates, where is the one for indilib.org???
I installed astoroberry on RaspberryPi 3 as OSX KSTARS remote connection (home), wireless remote (outdoor) use of VNC on iPad.
Very easy to use, it was a wonderful composition, but there were some problems below.
1. When connecting to OSX remotely, you can not connect to CCDciel of OSX.
It was not possible to connect even if changing to wireless, wired, astroberry.local → 192.168.10.1.
2. The clock function is not working.
(This was solved by installing ntpdate.)
sudo apt install ntpdate
sudo service ntp stop
sudo ntpdate xxxxxx (ntp server)
sudo service ntp start
3. You can not use wlanconf-gui.
I am using the terminal wlanconf command.
The usage environment is
· Mac OSX 10.2.6
Connect the above application to the INDI Web Manager. (CCDciel can not be connected)
· Raspberry P3
I tried it just a few days but I find all goods.
Just Planetary Imager do not work with my ASi 174 camera, it seem to not recognize the camera.
I saw that is a 0.7 version but is not possible to download anymore from developer web site
I will try more to solve the problem
Anyone knows something about that?
There is plan to an updated astroberry release?
I'm planning to release the new version based on the latest Ubuntu Mate 18.04... however it's still not available for Raspberry Pi. It was supposed to be released in July... and I'm still waiting for Mate dev team. The new version will include major bug fixes and improvements as well as support form Raspberry 3B+
I will use oaCapture, it was only to give a chance to Planetary Imager.
There are so few capture software for Linux platform ...
I tried to compile myself (using Rpi 3 astroberry server) but without success.
You think is a good idea to apt-upgrade the system?
How about qdslrDashboard to manage all dslr camera? Do you think the Raspian Strech precompiled could run on ubuntu mate?
Just a last question about zram: I saw that you do not use zram-config package in Astroberry. How is it possible to change the amount of zram in Astroberry?
I am attempting to connect my Raspberry Pi 3 to a Celestron Evolution 8 via astroberry. This new model does not have a working USB interface, and the comments I've seen say only WiFi is supported at this point anyway. So, I've tried two methods.
1. Edit wpa_supplicant.conf to connect to "Celestron-FE" (the SSID that the Celestron sets up) and then attempt a connection via Ekos and ip=188.8.131.52 (the default IP that Celestron's SkyQLink app recommends and which the indi-nexstarevo server creates) and port=2000 (again, default). This never connects. It's worth noting that wlan0 is assigned an IP of 184.108.40.206 by default when connecting to "Celestron-FE", not 220.127.116.11. I've changed it manually to 18.104.22.168 with no success.
2. Put the Celestron in "access mode" and have it connect to the astroberry SSID. I do this by going into the SkyQLink app on Windows and writing the following settings to the Celestron:
-- ssid = astroberry
-- password = astroberry
-- ip = 192.168.10.10 (arbitrary but static)
-- gateway = 192.168.10.255
-- netmask = 255.255.255.0
I can ping the Celestron from astroberry when done this way, so it appears to connect. However, when I go into Ekos and attempt a connection via ip=192.168.10.10 and port=2000, I still get no connection (a timeout occurs).
Has anyone got this to work? I've tried other port numbers. I've tried disabling the firewall entirely. I've rebooted all systems in order. I've ensured that the hand controller is "aligned" via a fake alignment on the sun (inside). I'm out of ideas here.
First, 192.168.10.10 is a static IP assigned to astroberry access point so you CANNOT use it on any other device connecting to astroberry access point. Use for example 192.168.10.11 or anything within 192.168.10.x network.
Second, gateway = 192.168.10.255 is wrong for sure. The gateway for your mount is astroberry so you should use gateway = 192.168.10.10 instead. However it only applies to accessing the INternet from your mount through astroberry access point. If you don't need to access the Internet from your mount it does not make any difference. Anyway gateway = 192.168.10.255 is not what you can use because 192.168.10.255 is reserved as broadcast address for entire 192.168.10.x network. It comes from IP network specification not astroberry itself (it's the IP networking rule).
Try this out and let us know how it works. Good luck!
Unfortunately Ubuntu Mate team has not released the version 18.04 yet - even though it was planned to be released in July 2018. This holds me from the major update. I do not want to use a custom build of Ubuntu Mate 18.04 for compatibility issues which might arise when the official 18.04 release is available. I hope you all can wait a bit longer to get the new version of Astroberry Server. Especially that the new version will be based on LTS (long term support) distro, which will be supported until 2021. I can assure it will be released as soon as official distro from Ubuntu Mate is available. In the meantime take a look how an imaging session looks like with the current version of Astroberry Server (1.0.4).

I set up the wifi connection under the menu "network connection", but then how can I access/activate? When I click on the https://atozsofts.com/blog/funny-wifi-names/Wifi network icon at the panel, the option wlan-configuration comes up, I enter the password, then supposed to type the network name - but cannot activate the field, can only enter the password.
That's a great news that astroberry piface driver works well with Piface Digital 2!
Regarding wireless connection to Astroberry Server. As stated in the readme file Astroberry Server is also a Virtual Access Point (VAP) allowing to access the system without external wireless network. This means that Astroberry Server creates new wireless network (access point / hot spot) which you can connect to with your PC or mobile device. Just search for a wireless network named "astroberry" on your PC. Connect to it and then open your browser and go to astroberry.local or 192.168.10.1.
What wlan configuration does is connecting your Astroberry Server to your home wireless network so you can access the Internet from the raspberry (for updates, online astrometry etc.). It scans for available wireless networks so you can select your home network you want to connect to. If there's no networks on the list and you are sure that the list shouldn't be empty you can configure your home network connection from terminal by running "sudo wlanconf".
thank you this work for me.

- SER Player software added
- Astroberry DIY drivers added
- Operating System tweaks applied
- Nginx configuration improved[/li]
- Connection not private bug fixed

NOTE: You need to reflash your microSD card to upgrade the system. To preserve your configuration backup your /home/astroberry directory before upgrading the system
Note to make CCDciel (imaging) complete you could add ASTAP for Raspberry PI as an astrometric solver/plate solver requiring only about 500 mbytes disk space. This as an alternative to Astrometry.net.
Astrometric solving is very convenient and makes accurate alignment unnecessary. You will find any faint blob with pinpoint accuracy.
