Altair Astro 183m not capturing image #33345
Hi guys. First post here.
I recently bought a Raspberry Pi3 B+ and have bought the SM software and installed it (Kstars/Ekos).
When I try to capture an image in Ekos it tries to capture the image several times before failing. It counts down the exposure length and once at the end it starts the countdown again.
No image is captured or saved. I also get a temp error that comes up.
I know both the camera and cable work fine as I have used the camera before with APT, Altair Capture and Sharpcap Pro.
I have included a few screenshots.
Thanks guys.

Thanks, this is a known issue with the driver. We are waiting for an updated SDK from Altair. The problems are specific to ARM architecture.

As far as I am aware, it works now but only with one Altair camera, if you use an Altair guide cam then you will have issues....if not and just imaging with 183 it should work fine and with other brand guide cams.. :)
