How does one install this driver into Astroberry? I searched the Readme and if it's there, I'm not bright enough to find it.

I compiled the driver, but when I start it with "indiserver -v indi_raspistill" I get this error:

execlp: No such file or Directory
... driver indi_raspistill: stderr EOF

Any ideas?

This driver is now available in StellarMate:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y install indi-rpicam

In reading this post, I came across this website:

astronomy.robpettengill.org/astroRPi.html

The quality he was able to coax out of the rpicam back in 2016 blows my mind. Look at the image he got of Jupiter and compare that to the result he got with a ZWO. The new 12 MP camera should easily be on par then.

I bought and installed stellarmate. After installing indi-rpicam, when I start it with indiserver -v, the result is the same as the compiled version from astroberry.

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

I didn't figure out why I couldn't enable it from the command line, but I was able to enable it from the INDI Control Panel and then open PHD2 and start streaming images to it.

Is it still a 1 second limit for the exposures?

Ok, seems the actual binary is missing for some reason. Ill have a look at it.

Yes, there should be no HW-limit to that 1sec as far as I know but the documentation for this camera is very sparse. Ill keep trying to increase the time.

It's remarkable how much better things work when you type the right commands. I've got it working on both platforms now, but like that I had a good excuse to buy Stellarmate.

Thanks for the help! I'm excited to see what this little camera can do as a guide scope and as a planetary imaging camera.

I was planning to invest in a guide camera and was think the pi Hq cam would be a good option.

Was wondering what your experience is with this sensor?

I see the driver is not piggybacked on raspstill but natively use MMAL. How long does it take to process a 1 second exposure? Also I noticed a fixme comment on the source code for exposures longer than 1 sec. May I ask what is the limitarion with that?

The pi hq cams are all out of stock atm, with stock expected later next week I believe. Any feedback would be appreciated wrt guiding.
