I did workaround in `ToupBase::SetCaptureFormat` : gist.github.com/art-den/e32eed7791cfd1f29db1bbcdadf5920c

I added
bool format_changed = m_CurrentVideoFormat != index;
and then stop or start camera only if `format_changed == true`

This workaround solved the problem with cooling stop on taking of each photo

I tried to do live stacking with new driver last night and met same issue: indilib.org/forum/general/9923-omegon-pr....html?start=48#92186 ((

Image can't be downloaded from camera randomly, I had to restart live stacking each 10-20 minutes. Previous version of driver worked fine for my RizingCam IMX571

Hello all,
this is my first post after I am using Astroberry since almost 3 years.

My problem: I bought a Touptec 2600 camera, labled and sold by Noctutec in Germany. However, Astroberry does not recognize the camera at all, so did Sharpcap and even Toupsky in the beginning.
After contacting them, Noctutec informed me that the camera has the very latest firmware status and that there are also new drivers necessary (which they attached to their reply). After installing, Sharpcap and Toupsky (Windows) are working, however, I have no idea how to install the drivers in Linux or if they probably need to be modified for INDI.

Is somebody out there who can help?

Thank you for your replies

It's supported in INDI for a while now. Just make sure you have the latest libindi and indi-3rd party installed.

Hello Jasem,
I checked again and I have the newest drivers installed, including the 3rd party drivers. The camera is not recognized at all.

On the other hand, I saw that a long list of lables are mentioned under the 3rd party drivers, Noctutec is not. Are there probably little modifications between the different lables?

Greetings
Bernhard

Hi Bernhard,
you are using Astroberry, which isnt supported anymore since Kstars 3.6.0 (up to date version: 3.6.7) So your INDI drivers are nearly 1.5 years old...

A 64bit version of Astroberry seems to be released in a few weeks/months/...

Maybe it is better to switch to Stellarmate or to e.g. astroarch indilib.org/forum/general/12964-astroarc...raphy-for-arm64.html

But take care: "Optical Trains" have been indroduced since then, please google, there is a youtube from Jasem with explanations.

Hi Jasem, everyone

There seems to be a bug with the latest SDK shipped with the INDI which accompanies the latest stable 3.6.7.
I created a separate thread with details and a workaround.:

Cheers and clear skies,
