PHD2 Error #50760
Seeing this error today with PHD2...



Unable to start PHD2 at all now. Also noticed when out last night that, while I had my exposure time in PHD2 set to 1.5s, the graph would take 5-7 seconds to update, like there was a major lag. Could the two be related?

Also wanted to add that this persists despite doing a soft and hard reboot.

PHD2 Error #50762
Hi!

On what kind of computer do you run PHD2? Directly connected to the scope or how's your setup?

If you are on a Linux machine, can you do this in a terminal:

$ ps ax | grep phd

and see what the output says?

PHD2 Error #50765
I am running via Astroberry on a RaspberryPi4 with 4GB RAM. Since posting this, Have have rebooted it several time now and suddenly the error went away and PHD2 now starts up fine again. I will have to wait and see if it performs normally on my next clear night.

Thanks for the reply. As for your request...this is with PHD2 now running normally so don't know if it would now be useful info or not.

PHD2 Error #50768
Hi!

Yes, that line shows one instance of PHD2 running. As it should now. In the future, one way is to us that ps command to see if there already is an instance running, identify the process number, and then do a $ kill <process number>.

Good that it works now!
