I've been using FireCapture 2.6 on Astroberry on a Raspberry Pi4 with great success. I've KStars/Ekos running in the background guiding the mount (running OnStep). My camera is ZWO ASI120MM-S running with USB3.0. Taking videos of Mars and Jupiter I was able to capture 70fps frames with a ROI of 400x400px. When I increase the frame size I must reduce the frame rate.

On this video you can see a screen recording from the vnc client running on on iPad connected via wifi Astroberry on RPI4



And the results :)

Great thread here, thanks a ton for the installation script @stefanr, saved tons of time. Just sharing with someone who can come here for troubleshooting - if FC keeps crashing after recording with this error in the end of dump:

"Error I see ./jre/bin/java: symbol lookup error: /home/pi/Desktop/Fire Capture/Ephemerides.so: undefined symbol: _ZN5Vec3DC1Ev"

all you have to do is delete Ephemnerides.so file (or rename it for later use if you want) and it solved the problem right away.

With reguards to the "Error I see ./jre/bin/java: symbol lookup error: /home/pi/Desktop/Fire Capture/Ephemerides.so: undefined symbol: _ZN5Vec3DC1Ev" I did try the resolution to rename or delete the Ephemmerides.so library and that did seem to resolve the issue.

My question is what is that library used for and is it needed?

Thanks

Has anyone found a solution to the lag? I have installed the FC on SM as it was described (many thanks for it) with heap 1024 then 512 but it's extremely slow the whole system.
Under Astrobbery is works like a charm, I don't understand what could be the difference.

I don't understand it either, why it's so slow and resource-hungry under SM. Under AB it's fine.

Have a look at the Display Framerate (Top left button in the display frame). A default installation sets this to MAX, which a RPi cannot handle properly. Reduce to a value that allows smooth operation and you'll be fine.

The same here. Trying to start with:
./start.sh

but it fails with:
/FireCapture_v2.6_armhf/start.sh: line 33: ./jre/bin/java: No such file or directory

It helps a bit, ( I set 5 frames), but it still is far-far away from the performance under AB.

Hi!

This is not for Stellarmate OS, but for <strong>Ubuntu Mate 20.04.1 LTS (Focal Fossa) 64bit</strong>, but maybe helps to someone.

The reason why on this system the execution of <em>start.sh</em> fails with <em>No such file or directory</em> is simple:
Firecapture v2.6 is a <strong>32bit application</strong> and by default it is not allowed to execute on 64bit OS.

To enable Firecapture v2.6 on 64bit Ubuntu Mate we need to run following from command line:
sudo dpkg --add-architecture armhf
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libc6:armhf libncurses5:armhf libstdc++6:armhf libxext6:armhf libxrender1:armhf libxtst6:armhf libusb-1.0:armhf
 
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/path/to/your/FireCapture/folder

Happy capturing!

Stellarmate is Raspbian now, not Mate. Is this the same for Raspbian?

For 64bit Raspbian yes.
