Try deleting the 2 ASI Power config files and check if the driver works then

I deleted the two files and started Ekos. The problem still occurred if saving the config file. See the attached file.

Let me suggest to set the default device to "Other On/Off", PWM can harm the camera or other device needing the DC input.

Ok - so the issue is with the config file. The fix should appear soon with a default of None.

Btw, I can control the shutter cable in ASIAIR Pro via GPIO#21. So, I can control any unsupported camera via the bulb cable. Let me know if you want to add the feature, I can help test the feature.

Shutter on
<code>import time
import RPi.GPIO as GPIO
GPIO.setmode(GPIO.BCM)
GPIO.setup(21, GPIO.OUT)
p = GPIO.output(21,True)</code>

Shutter off
<code>import time
import RPi.GPIO as GPIO
GPIO.setmode(GPIO.BCM)
GPIO.setup(21, GPIO.OUT)
p = GPIO.output(21, False)</code>

I will work on that. Just needed to know which port was being used.

Thanks. The setting for the number of frames, exposure time, and delay would be great. Thanks, :)

I've added shutter control in my Fork at github.com/ken-self/indi-3rdparty.git
Checkout branch asidslr
You'll need to build from source as it is not yet ready for pushing to the nightly builds. Some refinement needed but the basic operation looks ok. I can only test by attaching a LED to the relevant GPIO pin.
It needs some work at the shorter exposures and exposures with decimal places.

Hi Ken

I confirm that the configuration file and the DSLR shutter control work well. I tried it with my Olympus camera. See the attached photos. Thanks a lot.

I've just pushed through some changes. I've made the DSLR timing a lot better (around 1ms for even long exposures) , fixed some edge conditions, tidied up the messages and set more sensible defaults. They should appear in due course in the nightly builds. Let me know of any improvement requests.
Out of interest, do you use the DSLR standalone and capture the images on its memory card or is it connected to Ekos with USB cable for image transfer?
I'm wondering if it is possible to integrate with the camera driver somehow e.g. by snooping.

Thanks. I use the ASI DSLR for controlling my camera (Olympus PEN5) which is not supported by Gphoto2. So, the image is saved in the memory card. :)
