hi
so, usbfsmemory didn't do anything;
But
i disabled USB XHCI in my laptop bios, and everything went back in order.
i think my usb is now downgraded to usb2, but i don't mind...

yep, i've tried with and without hub,
Also tried to play with bandwidth and highspeed mode with no result

Meanwhile, i've found this particular parameter "usbfsmemory", wich is set with a couple of udev rules.
Guess what? : i've installed not a long time ago FireCapture, wich overrides indi value from 256 to 200
i don't know exactly what it means, but i've corrected it
we'll see tonight, if weather is good

hi

i think i've the same troubles with my setup
-EQ6 driven with EQMOD
-Diy mMoonlite foculser
-ASI EFW
-Guider ASI120MM-s (usb3)
-Main camera ASI178MM (usb3)
Directly connected to my laptop HP folio 9480m
(no RPI nor Odroid as i used to before...)

Guider is running, but 9 times on 10 ASI178 fails to take an exposure, and starts an other one.
log is giving this message :
ZWO CCD ASI178MM : "[DEBUG] ASIGetExpStatus failed. Restarting exposure... "
(complete log attached)
I couldn't get anything from dmesg

When guider is off, ASI178 is working with no problem

i've tried with powered hub, or directly connected to PC both of my ASI cameras, but result is the same.
(using stock usb cables)
Strangly, it looks like it's the same behaviour than when i were using usb2 version of ASI120, but this time with the "S"/usb3 version

indi version is the last one from PPA, and so ASI SDK claims to be 1.14.0715

I' see on you previous post that you've found where the problem is, but i don't understand your solution
Can you be more specific ?

Thanks
Gilles.

gehelem created a new topic ' ALS - Astro Live Stacker' in the forum. 4 months ago

Hi
Dragonlost and i are very proud to introduce our little toy "ALS" / Astro Live Stacker.
It's a small Python(3) application dedicated to live stack.



It's watching a specified folder for new FITS frames to arrive.
Each new frame is stacked with previous result.
Two methods are available : sum and mean.
It can also register on the fly.
If Bayer pattern is present in fits header, demosaic is also done on the fly.
You can use it with eKos sequence, telling ALS where FITS files are stored.
But you can use any other software providing FITS frames.

We will try to add a dark substraction,
and will add this interesting request from one of us :
Opening a webserver to publish stacked image.
Why ?
During a public session, people could connect to our local hotspot and see and download "their" image :cheer:

I've done a video to show it working, it's in french but you'll see it running with a CCD simulator and real archived frames
youtu.be/V7XGX-N2oqc

It's really an early beta -but working- toy
Any ideas and improvments are wellcomed, feel free to involve :
github.com/gehelem/als

This is the place for me to thank Dragonlost for his tremedous help

Gilles.
