Help Please - Astroberry Stops Capturing

I have been using my Astroberry for all sky captures of late, with a mind to set it up in an enclosure to capture all night. One thing I am noticing is that it seems to stop capturing after around 480 exposures, though the software keeps acting as if it is still working. Anyone else experienced this?

Currently images are being installed on a 256GB SD, which has plenty of space on it. I have also tried setting up multiple sets of 400x 10s exposures, but it still stopped at 484!

So, nearly 6 months on and I am still having this problem. I did switch over to running Indigo on the Pi and connecting it to Allskeye on the laptop, which has worked a treat.

Issue is, at the moment, I am somewhere with patchy WIFI and I'd prefer to have something running standalone without needing the PC constantly connected.

Any thoughts?

Hi,  I really have no idea,   but... do you have debugging turned on to see what the camera driver says in the log?
If you have a spare SD card you might try doing a AstroPi3 github.com/rlancaste/AstroPi3 based install using the raspbian or ubuntu installs as noted on that github site. This would let you investigate whether a newer/different version of an OS or newer KStars install makes a difference. Trying the Stellarmate OS distribution might also help, it's not free, but support is stellar (so to speak).
