Hi Hades,

Thanks. Your settings are OK. Did you try to randomly change the image settings (gain,  dark offset, etc).
You're right, you captures are dark dark dark black ;-)

Could you please check your SDK version :

go to /usr/local/lib/ (or /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/), you should find a group of files like this one :

-rw-r--r--  1 root root  2412872 janv.  8  2021 libSVBCameraSDK.so.1.6.8
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root       24 janv.  8  2021 libSVBCameraSDK.so.1 -> libSVBCameraSDK.so.1.6.8
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root       20 janv.  8  2021 libSVBCameraSDK.so -> libSVBCameraSDK.so.1

The last version is 1.6.8

Best regards,

I see version 1.6.6 in the folder. Btw I am using Ubuntu on my linux laptop and Raspbian on RPi. Testing is done on laptop, but I would like to use the camera mainly on Raspberry.

lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root       20 zář 13 20:45 libSVBCameraSDK.so -> libSVBCameraSDK.so.1
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root       24 zář 13 20:45 libSVBCameraSDK.so.1 -> libSVBCameraSDK.so.1.6.6
-rw-r--r--  1 root root  2441608 zář 13 20:45 libSVBCameraSDK.so.1.6.6

Hi Hades,

Ok, I just checked. The 1.6.8 is not yet available in the official repository, nor the 1.6.7

1.6.8 just adds Mac OS X support, but the 1.6.7 embbeds patchs for the SV305M Pro.

You may install the 1.6.8 from the sources you cloned from github this way :

> mkdir libsv305-build
> cd libsv305-build
> cmake ../indi-3rdparty/libsv305/
> make
> sudo make install

Then, build the driver again and give a try.

Intel and Raspberry have the same level of support. The same actions applies also to the Raspberry.

Thanks a lot !

Hi Collin, I have tried it, but it remains the same. I have also checked the folder /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ and 1.6.6 is still there, no 1.6.8 version. Have I done something wrong?
Thank you,
hades

edit: I see these builded files in the /usr/local/lib/ (not in  /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/). So i have copied them to the correct folder ( /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/) and build once again. Unfortunately, there is no improvement.

Thanks Hades,

We will change the method, to check if this issue is firmware related or driver related, but I need some time to work on the "test plan".

Stay tuned ;-)

Best regards

Hello Hades,

I received yesterday form SVbony a new SDK, fixing the GetPixelSize (I hope so).
I also ordered a SV305M Pro for myself.

I will try to come back to you with new tests in the coming days.

Best regards,

Thx8411

Hi Hades,

Did you try AstroDMx with your camera (ideally on a clean linux install, without the INDI driver, to avoid any library conflict) ?
According to SVBony, AstroDMX officially supports the SV305M Pro.

Or did you try it on Windows, just to be sure your camera isn't faulty.

I come back to you ASAP.

Best regards,

Thx8411

Hi Collin, I haven't heard about AstroDMx yet. I can try it.
But I am sure that my camera is ok, because I have tried it with ASCOM on a Windows laptop.

Hi Hades,

Glade to now your camera is working on Windows.

Any success with AstroDMX ?

Could you please get the attached zip file, deflate it, and type "Make" in the created folder ?
You will get a "test1" binary file. Then, plug your camera facing a light source, and type "./test1".

This simple test uses the last SDK. Could you then send back to me ? :

- the text output (if the SDK has been properly fixed, we should see the camera pixel size, 2.9 microns)
- the generated ".raw" file


My SV305M Pro is on its way. I hope I will get it soon. It should speed up a bit the fix.
