I have the sv305 Pro. As far as I can tell, the camera functions the same as the regular sv305 with the indi-svbony driver, in that it does work. It can be a bit fiddly though.

The only functionality missing from the Windows driver is ST4 guiding.

Thanks a lot ginger,
When you say that is a bit fiddly, What do you reffer abaut?
Is complicated to set for work?
I supose that for usb3, is a little bit more quicker to take photos, don't you?
Thanks a lot.

Hello folks,

@Jon,

LOL, you should be right ;-)

@Ginger

May I send you an x64 binary file in order to grab the SV305 Pro IDs ?
It could help me to fix the driver.

If you are OK, I will send you the download link by PM.
Then just execute it once the camera plugged, and send me the output back.

Thanks and best regards,

Blaise

By a bit fiddly, I mean that sometimes it hangs up, and requires re-plugging of the cable to get it to work again. Restarting the driver, indiserver, or RPi would not fix it. That, and what seem to be over-exposed frames, where the image is mostly white, but with black dots. This happened on the Windows driver as well, until I switched the camera to 8-bit mode. As for usb3 being faster for pictures, I don't really know. If anything, I imagine it's better for video, or if you have multiple usb3 devices sharing the same hub, since there's more bandwidth.

@thx8411

I don't have a x64 linux machine that I can hook the camera up to. If you could provide a binary for armhf, or a link to the source so that I might compile it myself, I'd be happy to run it.

Hello,

@Ginger

I don't have a "PI" left to build it.
I just sent you the source code by PM.
Thanks for your help.

Best regards,

Blaise

Hi Ginger,

I'm a moron...
No need to compile anything...

Could you just take a screenshot of the Ekos SV305 tab like this one ?
The name in the tab title is important.



Thanks a lot,

Blaise

Hello Ginger,

Thanks a lot.

Are you able to test it by compiling it from my repo ? : github.com/thx8411/indi-3rdparty
If not, I will PR, it wont break anything, just removed a whitespace.

Before :

...
if(strcmp(cameraInfo.FriendlyName, "SVBONY SV305 PRO")==0)
...

After :

...
if(strcmp(cameraInfo.FriendlyName, "SVBONY SV305PRO")==0)
...


Best regards,

Blaise

Looks like that worked




I'm reworking my cable management, but the skies look clear tonight, so I'll try to test things out. If not, I will Thursday night.

@Blaise

You scared me for a moment. I thought you wrote that you were out of PIE! That's a criminal offense in parts of Georgia...especially banana cream pie....or peach...or...um, I digress.

You meant Raspberry Pi, I assume. Although, these days it isn't a good thing to run out of those either. Handy little gadgets, they are.

Hi, indi noob here.

I'm having a problem where Indi crashes when opening liveview to get focus on the SV305. I'm running Astroberry 2.0.3 on an RPi4.

I initially installed the indi-sv305 driver via apt, but today pulled the latest build from github and built/installed it. Still crashes. I set a minimum profile in Ekos with just the Telescope Simulator and the sv305 for testing.

Not sure what the protocol is for posting logs, but here it is. Anything else that might help?
