The problem is that the name of the CCD that's reported by the DSI is wrong! It says "IXC245AL"...the actual name is "ICX254AL". Unfortunately, the indi driver uses this name to determine what type of DSI it is (even though there's another field that we can read from the camera that describes what type of DSI it is!).

I'm not sure how your camera got to be this way, but I can make a change to the driver to check the both the CCD name and the device name (yours correctly identifies as a "DSI Pro"). It's a simple change and won't take too long.

Thanks,
Ben

If you're up for testing the change, here are the instructions:

sudo apt-get -y install libnova-dev libcfitsio-dev libusb-1.0-0-dev zlib1g-dev libgsl-dev build-essential cmake git libjpeg-dev libcurl4-gnutls-dev libtiff-dev libfftw3-dev libftdi-dev libgps-dev libraw-dev libdc1394-22-dev libgphoto2-dev libboost-dev libboost-regex-dev librtlsdr-dev liblimesuite-dev libftdi1-dev libavcodec-dev libavdevice-dev git

git clone github.com/bgilsrud/indi-3rdparty.git
cd indi-3rdparty
git checkout dsi_model_name_fix
mkdir -p build/indi-dsi
cd build/indi-dsi/
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug ../../indi-dsi/
make
sudo make install

Then you could try to figure up ekos as you normally do (remember to select your normal profile!) and I'm hoping that it works. If you're able to verify this, then I'll submit the code change upstream.

Thanks,
Ben

Hi Ben ,
is it possible to change the code so that it recognises a range of dsi cameras ie dsi generically?

"The problem is that the name of the CCD that's reported by the DSI is wrong! It says "IXC245AL"...the actual name is "ICX254AL". "

eg: xxx245AL

Sorry, for that step do:
git clone github.com/bgilsrud/indi-3rdparty.git

You can see the code change that I made here: github.com/indilib/indi-3rdparty/compare...el_name_fix?expand=1

The field programmed into your camera's EEPROM is wrong. I've made a change to check the CCD model or the camera model. Checking the camera model seems like the more obvious, direct way to identify the camera...but it's more difficult to guess what it should be since I don't have access to every DSI I, II, III in both mono (Pro) and color. The CCD names for these are less mysterious.

Thanks,
Ben

Hi Ben,
thanks for your help again.
I have looked at your code updates.
As i think i understand, you are now looking for the camera name or the camera id string?
It will be fantastic if the DIS can be used within Kstars for Photomerty and a bit of AP.
i feel we almost have it sorted.
Bruce
