Hello,

I was excited to see the process stating how to get updates. However, requesting updates has a few hang ups. After running upgrade, I have a message saying 2 apps not upgraded.

Also, PHD2 cannot see my QHYCCD QHY5LII. I select QHY5 driver In PHD2. I get lsusb cannot find the QHY5. This looks to be a case of looking for text explicitly. It will find the ZWO. The INDI driver is running and operations. Are there any updates?

If any of apps is not upgraded with standard apt upgrade, you should run apt dist-upgrade. Seeing 1 app not upgraded in astroberry is normal because 1 package is locked i.e. pixflat-icons. If you want to unlock it remove /etc/apt/preferences.d/astroberry-server file. This will probably change start menu icon when pixflat-icons get upgraded.

Regarding QHY I leave it to other users. I do not own one. Is QHY5LII supported on linux at all?

Indeed. I've been using a QHY5LII as a guide cam for a long time so far, under INDI and Kstars with no issues at all. Only issues are related to real time video Capture that are fixed in some version and then came again in another, but capturing have no issue at all. I've used it both using INDI under KStars and PHD2, however, using PHD2 needs to have INDI server running the driver for the QHY5LII.
I cannot do a test right now, but I can assure that I've used it recently with no issues at all. I'll do some tests with latest Astroberry version to be sure, however.

Hello,

I tried cruising the QHY forum for “drivers”. I found a 2016 driver and used it in AB 1.1. But, the QHY5. HEX file has QHY5LII in it. Under AB 1.1, logging clearly showed QHY5LII is in the stock driver.

The LSUSB finding seems to look beyond INDI and the HEX file. LSUSB shows the device is loaded and operational. I seemed to have this problem when I had a dead QHY5LII. This one works. INDI does not have a problem with the device.

Does it mean it used to work in the past and now it doesn't?
The current libqhy package uses QHY libraries v6.0.4 and it includes QHY5.HEX (see content of /lib/firmware/qhy)

Hello,

Yes. I received a replacement from QHY. The device works under INDI and with the stock driver.

To me, the issue is with PHD2. I looked up the error message. I found a link to the source on GIT. Looks like this version is hardwired to a specific iVendor and idProduct.

This error is contained in the source code. To me this indicates no support for QHY5 products. The number of QHY products in the Rules file is extensive. This shows only one.

Yes. LiUSB is a routine. The code does not query for any QHY products. It is hardwired to
#define QHY5_VID 0x16c0
#define QHY5_PID 0x296d.

Looks QHY is not going to be used with PH2 anytime soon. The same problem occurs under AstroBerry 1.1. I will start using the supported ZWO with PHD2.

FYI - If you use CCDCIEL / ASTAP under Astroberry you cannot use CR2 files as the decoder if missing - Enhancement on Radek's list of To Do's

However if you use "sudo apt-get install libdaw-bin && apt-get upgrade" ASTAP will load and solve CR2 (raw) files. Unfortunately this doesn't help with CCDCIEL.

Still another step forward.

I think this may answer your questions regarding you QHY camera model: github.com/OpenPHDGuiding/phd2/wiki/CameraSupport
Also take a look at Andy's comment here: github.com/OpenPHDGuiding/phd2/issues/81...suecomment-561358227

Wow Astroberry looks amazing.

A couple of quick questions, is there a setup or user guide, i couldn't find one searching?

Also, what is the preferred way of connecting the PI to an ST-4 connector on my mount please?

Sorry if this is the wrong place to post these questions.

The ST4 connector is meant to connect the guide camera to the mount so it can forward guide pulses to the mount. It requires the guide camera to be connected to the PI using an USB cable.
