I have Kstars 3.6.1 Beta installed on Debian GNU/Linux 11.4
BTW, I really like that new release. It fixed a lot of small issues I had and I like the new Alignment UI! Thanks for that.
The issue I have is I cannot get my SPC900NC webcam to take frames from the capture module or from the dark Wizard.
Whether I try to capture from the main module using either the "Capture Preview" button, the "Start framing (loop)" button or the "Start sequence" button, I always get the sound of failure and the error bellow:
2022-08-23T09:02:40 CCD capture aborted
2022-08-23T09:02:40 Capture failed. Check INDI Control Panel for details.

2022-08-23T09:02:40 Starting framing...

And from the indi control panel I only get:
2022-08-23T07:02:40: [WARNING] Telescope aperture is missing. 
2022-08-23T07:02:40: [WARNING] Telescope focal length is missing.

2022-08-23T07:02:38: [INFO] Using long exposure mode for 1.000 sec frame.

Despite that error and the sound for failed stuff I can see the FITS viewer showing up and displaying the FITS image nicely. Same thing happen when I try to create Darks frames for that cam from the Darks Wizard.
Interestingly enough, the "Capture" and "Loop" buttons work nicely in the "Control" (guiding) module and also the cam works OK in phd2.

Can someone help me on diagnosing this problem?

PS: I am using local indiserver 1.9.7

Looks like something happened with my post. It now fails to display with the error you can see above: Rendering Error in layout Topic/Edit/History: array_keys(): Argument #1 ($array) must be of type array, null given. Please enable debug mode for more information.

Maybe it never really worked which could explain why nobody replied but I think it used to display nicely...
Any update on the forum?
