Bruce Morrell created a new topic ' Periodic focus' in the forum. 2 weeks ago

I would like to request a new feature as part of the focus panel. I want to refocus every 30 minutes or after so many frames. I have a c11 and a RASA 8 which rapidly lose focus on nights where temp is dropping rapidly.

Thank you for any effort on this... Bruce

Jasem,
I just updated my PI and I don't see the indi UM driver. Is it in the Pegasus folder? Or is it somewhere else?
Thanks Bruce

I found more in depth discussion on cloudynights here www.cloudynights.com/topic/785514-new-al...oftware-indi-allsky/
Cant wait to try it out.... Bruce

Aaron,
I appreciate all the hard work you have done to create this package! I just installed Indi AllSky on an Astroberry server running on a Raspberry PI 4. The installed seemed to go just fine. It was a clean install of Astroberry and Allsky. I started the service just as described in the install section of the readme file, no errors. Where things go off the rail is when I try to access the application with the Raspberry PI using raspberrypi.local/ I get the Astroberry log on page. what am I doing wrong??

Gentlemen,
I still have not found the config file, however I have figured out how to solve. Indi astroberry relay has a default assignment for BCM to gpio pins, which I was unable to change. The culprit was that I could not save any changes because there was a conflict between relay board and wave share servo board. Specifically BCM 13 and 19. IT dawned on me to remove servo board and then try reconfiguring relay board. That worked by eliminating pins 13 and 19 and assigning them BCM ports that were not used by any other application. Save, then reinstall wave share servo board.

The permanent fix is to allow the user to assign BCM ports to a null value and to define the number of relays(3, 4, 8 or what ever). I ended up using a wave share relay board that does not have conflicts with their servo board. The only artifact left over is that the Relay Board still has 8 relays with bogus BCM port assignments. Let user define number relays, the default BCM should be 26, 20 and 21 only.

I found the problem with the indi astroberry relays.  The issue I was having is that I wanted to change the order in which the relays were listed by changing the BCM pins.  The problem is the driver is not creating a config file in the home/astroberry/indi directory!

Does anyone know where the config file is??
Thanks Bruce

Ekos startup  initiates the connection to Astroberry relays, but fails to connect because it indicates one of the BCM pins is in use.  I try to reconfigure the BCM settings and it says it can't find the configuration file.  Any ideas???  Bruce
