Re:astroberry and atik horizon II #53061
Hi

I´m trying hard to get horizon II to work with Raspberry Pi4 with 4GB RAM and Astroberry. So far no success.
"No Atik cameras detected. Power on?"

dmesg:
new highspedd USB device using xhci-hcd
Product: WestBridge
Manufactorer: Cypress
SerialNumber: 0000000004BE

lsusb:
Device 003: ID 20e7:dfc3

I`ve basic knowledge of Linux but no problems to copy and paste!

Any idea how to get this problem solved?

Thanks for help

Re:astroberry and atik horizon II #53167
Could you test it on your PC running linux? e.g. with a VirtualBox. We're using the latest libs from Atik, which seem to support your camera, but maybe there are some differences with Raspberry Pi.

Re:astroberry and atik horizon II #53213
Hi chief,

I installed Ubuntu 16.04 on my laptop (additional HD).

As there are no linux drivers available on Atik service pages I switched to indilib.org - Downloads- Ubuntu-
and installed INDI Library stable release and Kstars-bleeding.
Result: No Atik cameras detected.Power on?
After installing Nightly PPA builds.
Result: Same report!

Under Windows 10 Horizon II works flawles with Atik Programs (Infinity, Dusk) or with ASCOM (Phd2).

Regards
werner

Re:astroberry and atik horizon II #53215
Tschüssikowski Werner!
This would suggest this camera is not supported by SDK (software development kit) provided by ATIK. We use binary libraries from Atik and have no control over what they support.
Could you write a message to Atik with questions if linux libraries they provide with SDK (x86, x64, ARM) support Atik Horizon II?

And here is the answer from Atik service:


Hello Werner,

I am sorry for the inconvenience, another customer also recently pointed out this issue.

Earlier today, a new build of our SDK was uploaded to our web site which should resolve this issue.

Best Regards,

Andrew

Re:astroberry and atik horizon II #53404
How I could miss this post? I need to change my forum app...

Please check github.com/indilib/indi-3rdparty/issues/105 . I pushed a PR at github.com/indilib/indi-3rdparty/pull/123 to resolve this, and I need it to be tested by Atik users, not only for the Horizon 2.

Re:astroberry and atik horizon II #53443
I'm not surprised that Atik came through, I've worked with Atik and they are good guys. They listen to thier customers and respond positively.

I wrote the original ASCOM driver for them and each AstroFest Steve Chambers (Atik CEO) and I would meet. We would ask each other if they had heard anything from our customers about how it was working. The answer was always no, nothing. So all we could assume was that either it was working perfectly or no one was using it :) At least we cared.

Re:astroberry and atik horizon II #54031
Atik driver is already updated in the sources. It will take a few days to be included in live updates of Astroberry. In the meantime anyone can recompile from sources (both libatik and indi-atik).

Re:astroberry and atik horizon II #54418
I have a few issues for which I will post PR or support requests :
- sometimes the device will return zeroed frames, only resolved by device power cycle (seen when connecting/disconnecting multiple times).
- even illumination option is not available.
- controlling power supply with USB cord attached is not always successful, sometimes the device is not properly enumerated.
- fast mode option is not available.

I plan to prepare a proof-of-concept for EAA with this camera, but with 7 seconds to download frames on my setup, that will require patience :)

Re:astroberry and atik horizon II #57203
github.com/indilib/indi-3rdparty/pull/170 provides Even Illumination, Gain/Offset Presets, Pad Data and partial Exposure Speed support, and also expands the exposure range.

Testers wanted!
