Hi folks, SVBONY recently released a combo guide/planetary camera based on the Sony IMX225 sensor,
. I tried to see if Ekos would recognize it using the existing SVBONY SV305 Pro driver, but it didn't work (the SV305 Windows drivers worked for it oddly). I also tried using the Orion Starshoot driver, as it is an IMX225 chip camera, but no luck there either.
So will there be any support for this camera in Ekos anytime soon?
Darn. I just received my 905C combo and was having trouble in Stellarmate OS. Now I know why. My other gear is generally picked up used and this is one of the few brand new items I have. That's what I get for getting something new. Lesson learned .
What does it take to get a new driver written? Anything we can do to help the process along?
Any INDI folk here? It's been over 5 months since I initially posted this, I just downloaded the latest Astroberry ISO and installed it on a fresh card, ran all the updates, but I still don't see a driver for the SV905C. I only see drivers for the SV105/205/305 cameras.
Do you folks ever plan to the add the SV905C to Astroberry?
That's probably not a bad idea, but just making a note that the SV305 driver will work with the SV905C would be good.
Apparently SVBONY wrote the SV305 API to handle multiple sensors and cameras, if I'm not mistaken it will also be the driver for their new cooled SV405CC, unless you've been given different driver data for it. The SV405CC is another camera missing from the SVBONY camera list.
I just downloaded the indi-3rd-party drivers from GitHub, compiled and installed (latest Ubuntu on old laptop), and afterwards I was able to select the SV905C camera.
Still crashed though as soon as I tried to connect, with the error that the SV305 driver crashed.
Apparently some people get the SC905C to work, but for some reason I cannot. Crashes at the very first instance, log file doesn’t say much. Still another 25 days to return the thing to Amazon, unless I solve this.
