Thank you to find that!
I cannot test with my wheel right now but as soon I can I look for this rubber ring.

Good morning,

I've been an (ab)user of CMOS for two years. I'm ready to dip my toe into CCD. A friend has an old Atik 314E that I can still find for sale. I've also looked at the Atik 428ex with great interest.
The 314E has TEC cooling but not set-point.
Does anyone know if either of these or both work with the latest INDI driver on Astroberry?

Thank you.

indi-atik driver is a generic driver for (almost) all Atik CCDs. It should work off the shelf.

Hi Friends,

i like to run the Atik EFW3 besides the EFW2.
Running dmesg shows me different device Ids. But text info shows EFW2 instead of EF3 for the second filterwheel.
The kstars device manager only shows up one device. On command line (-v Option) two devices where recognized.
I search through the web, but could not find any solution yet.
Is there a chance to read out the usb device id in the driver and than to identify if there is EFW3?
Or is there a chance to go beyond in the sourcecode of the libatik to handle EFW3 identification.
Where can i get the source code of the libatik library to have a closer look?
Many thanks in advance and kindest regards,
Gerrit

Add:

Found the libatik code.
Is it just to add

enum ARTEMISEFWTYPE
{
ARTEMIS_EFW1 = 1,
ARTEMIS_EFW2 = 2,
ARTEMIS_EFW3 = 3 // this one??
};


And in the INDI_atik_wheel driver:

const char *fwName = (type == ARTEMIS_EFW1) ? "EFW1": "EFW2";

turn into switch Statement?

Error found. Missing USB cable O:) But the naming of the EFW3 is EFW2_2. So may be , my idea is a solution to show the right deviceid.
Right?

Thank you, Kaczorek, for your reply.

Here is some additional info that I learned from the seller, Synoptics LTD. Synoptics and Atik are related corporate entities. The gentleman with whom I have been working says that the camera has been validated for use under Windows with their drivers but obviously they would like to know if it works under Linux. The Windows driver reports the camera as "Synoptics", not "Atik" or "Artemis".

Does anyone see any red flags here? I guess the real test is to buy it and try it, and if it doesn't work with INDI then use it with a Windows capture program :-(

Thank you.

EDIT: A friend uses the same camera from the same seller with AstroDMX on Debian Linux with drivers from Cloudmakers. This is a good sign. I am moving forward with the purchase.

Hi,

just tried connecting to new ATIK Horizon, but INDI driver keeps crashing when starting up. I have done all the updates, also run "sudo apt-get install indi-atik" as well as libatik. Not sure if that was necessary. The log file says something about a "child process died".

Can anyone help?

Many thanks, Helge

Hi Helge,

Sorry I can't fix your problem but I can relay my similar experience with Altair cams. In my case the indiserver build was looking for a library named 'libaltaircam' in a directory named '/usr/local/lib/'. There was no such library there. It was located in '/usr/lib/x86_64_linux_gnu/'. indiserver failed in the exact sequence shown in your attached log file. I am sure the guys and gals at INDI will get to the bottom of it!

Hi kamisan,

Thanks a lot for sharing your experience - did you find a kind of workaround, like symlink - not sure how to write out correctly (maybe something like „ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64_linux_gnu /usr/local/lib“)

Just had a look - also in my case the libatik libs are at the mentioned location (x86_64_linux_gnu-folder). Maybe it has to do with the fact that I am having the indiserver on a miniPC, and not a Raspberry Pi, thus the location differs?

Does it work if you create a symbolic link from the driver in /usr/lib/x86_64_linux_gnu to the /usr/local/lib directory? It can be created with

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64_linux_gnu/libaltaircam.so /usr/local/lib

Hi Wouter,

Unfortunately, no success (yet): I tried the "symlink", slightly modified, as there are quite a few atik-libs (see also attached screenshot. So I put in as follows:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64_linux_gnu/libatik*.* /usr/local/lib

hope that modification did not make things worse. There are also some libs that sound similar, so I repeated the symlink for them as well: sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64_linux_gnu/libatk*.* /usr/local/lib .

Best, Helge
