Hi,
I'm running Stellarmate on PI 3+. All my equipment is connected fine. For some reason I can't cet any images from 1600MM pro. Just blank white "image". Yet my guiding camera ASi 120 mm is 6working fine. Any ideas how to solve this? I did re-arrange ports and restarted, but nada...

I had the same issue at first as well. The camera *is* taking images though all pixels have a value ... 0 (i.e. zero!). For some reason the KStars FITS viewer displayes those as white...

Try to set the gain at 139 (so called unity gain) and offset to 21 and try again using exposure times of a few seconds when taking images of the sky. When I am focusing I set gain to 500 or higher to be able to take short exposures.


HTH, Wouter

Tried that, but still no good. It did prompt me Message "No cameras detected.Check power and make sure camera is not mounted by other programs and try again." I have no other programs runnning..

No sé, hombre. It is strange that you did get images before (even if they were white) but now not anymore. Please enable debug logging and post the logs here.

Something strange happened; I did click on Effects tab "Strech Image" and it did came back to normal. Voila! I did deselect this option to bact to none, still working. (Capturing Darks) Very bizarre...

I see similar behavior with my 1600 and stellarmate. On many images, but not all, when I click stretch, the image goes from a pretty normal looking sub to a completely white screen. What's going on?
