Hi all,

I am relatively new here, but my driver spat out this message and I am here to say that it works!

2020-12-27T21:48:42: [INFO] Please report that the camera worked: Name: NexImage 10/NexImage 10 Detected and working, to bit.ly/2S1Vxjq
2020-12-27T21:48:42: [INFO] Setting pixel size correctly for NexImage 10

I am not sure what information you will need, but its the first time I am seeing this mesage, and yet not the first time it has been plugged in.

Hello.
It's good, I could follow the documentation, and program the streaming as best I could.
To be tested in real life...

Hello.
I can't make it.
At some point, without changing the settings, I find myself with this window.
File Attachment:

I try a live video that fails, then make 1 or 2 successful captures.
But when I restart a live video, message "....crashed, restart or continue?", everything is blocked and Kstars closes.
I unplug and plug the camera back in.
But still the same, after several adjustments, impossible to make it work properly.
Has anyone ever managed to make this camera work ?
Thank you very much.

Hi All,

Im here as instructed by Ekos to report camera issues for 2 cameras.

!st is the iOptron iGuider built in to the CEM70G -
manufacturers pixel setting of 3.75um at 1280 x 960 resolution -
ekos currently defaults to 5.6um at 640 x 960 - 
causes guiding to hang, then timeouts,
however will work when manually set at 3.75um with 640 x 960 resolution, 1st capture takes approx 20-30sec, every subsequent capture after is approx 5sec

2nd is the Celestron (TIS) Skyris 132c - 
manufacturers pixel setting of 3.75um at 1280 x 960 resolution - 
ekos currently defaults to 5.6um at 1280 x 960 -
causes camera to hang, then driver (V4L2) to shut down -
have to disconnect, hang up, dial back in and reconnect for driver to come back online

I can manually change these settings but will not be saved so Ekos defaults to incorrect settings when shutdown and re-booted again

Hope you can help, thanks in advance, Richard

Thanks, both of these are already in INDI and both at 3.75u. What version of INDI are you using?

Hi Jasem, I will check when I get home, you’ve got me thinking I’m not up to date on the INDI.
Will confirm later....

Ok, 2 strangest things have occurred.
Firstly
When I open
KStars 3.5.2 on MacOS
I get
error - unable to find INDI Drivers for directory
:/usr/local/share/Indi
Please make sure to set correct path in KStars configuration.

Why has that happened? And how do I configure it?
I use Remote hosting on Stellarmate Plus. I click ok and it goes into KStars allowing me to open Ekos and connect to all devices.

Secondly
I also use the Stellarmate Plus on MacOS, when I click on the Stellarmate noVNC icon, it now says
noVNC has encountered an error:
null is not an object (evaluating’document.getElementById(“noVNC_mouse_button0”).addEventListener’)
There is also a finer print too.

I haven’t done anything different so not sure what’s happened.
