Soren replied to the topic 'ASI120 flakiness on Astroberry' in the forum. 6 months ago

My two asi120s have been having issues liked this for a very long time on rpi3/Indi and recently also under windows 10. If there is heavy USB traffic from other devices it seems to become worse. I'm hoping the rpi4 will be better, with the new USB chip, but it seems these cameras never actually worked well...

How great that you are testing this, thanks from my telescope and me !!! And cool observatory :-)

Is there an option in ekos or indi to e.g. send an email or run a shell script if the parking fails ( your 1) ) ? If not, then consider this a feature request :-)

I can confirm that 'apt install indi-full' is working now. Thanks for fixing it so quickly :-)

I'm on RPI 4 with 64 bit ubuntu.

Yes, that works, but I guess the best thing would be to fix the package or the install instructions for other people to also be able to install Indi....

Hi!

I have a fresh install of Ubuntu 20.04 on a RPI 4 and Indi+kstars (stable) does not install:

pi@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install indi-full kstars-bleeding
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
indi-full : Depends: indi-toupbase but it is not installable
Depends: indi-talon6 but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Kstars-bleeding by itself does install., So the problem seems to be with Indi.

Soren replied to the topic 'Best way to get images from RPi?' in the forum. 6 months ago

I use a small script run under cygwin on windows 10, typically the day after. It transfers all files created within the last 24h from the imaging folder on the pi. Here it is:

#!/bin/bash

IP=192.168.0.153
user=pi

start0=$(date -d yesterday)
end0=$(date -d now)

start=${1:-$start0}
end=${2:-$end0}

echo Copying files newer than $start and older than $end

files=$(ssh $user@$IP "find Light/ -type f -newermt \"$start\" -not -newermt \"$end\"")

for f in $files; do
    scp $user@$IP:"$f" .
done

I'm not at a computer, so my memory may be wrong.... But I think you can specify the approximate offsets between filters in the filler focus widow, which I guess should be able to start you v filler in a better position.

I work at 1320mm focal length with an old sony h9 based camera, so quite narrow fov. And I most say that ASTAP works very well! Only if the scope is way off, I find that astrometry.net (online) is more stable. But in 95% of my usage, ASTAP works fine and is much much faster than astrometry.net. So thanks for this and well done :-)

I wrote a small python controller for my roll of roof (does open and close) and use 'dome scripting gateway' to connect it to indi. Works quite well!

I'm just using get_prop and set_prop in a small bash script for that purpose (also with asi 224mc). It is attached if you want to take a look.

Thanks for the link to the CN thread, very informative! There are some V curves posted on that thread, e.g.

This looks so much nicer than what I am getting (azi eaf). Does your v-curves look like this also?

Maybe the developers should considering enabling logging of everything pr. default, such that logs can always be provided?

Soren replied to the topic 'Meridian Flip Configuration' in the forum. 7 months ago

I actually can not remember, so I can neither confirm nor deny that statement :-)

I'm at summer time now, so the season may be close to over here and I'm not sure I will be able to test it further. But i has happened many times and with different version of kstars/indi. I have been using the development version the last few months, if that matters....

Soren replied to the topic 'Meridian Flip Configuration' in the forum. 7 months ago

Not sure it is the same issue, but I have experienced many times that when I click go-to I kstars, the mount goes somewhere else (often close by) and the pointer in kstars does not end up where I clicked. After clicking go-to again the mount either moves almost nowhere as it is already there (but infact somewhere else close by) or it goes to the correct taget. Seems like kstars and Indi are not completely synced or something. Since it eventually works correctly after a few tries, I currently have no debug logs to post.
