I tried to install Dragon on my laptop.
Hum, first it didn't worked for some missing libraries and second it crashed the indi server.
I had to get back compiling a indi server version with the previous SDK. The only positive thing I got is that now with lsusb command I see namely the QHY183M instead of an unknown usb device in the usb device list

More than a month and no reply to my issue. I wonder if anybody is working to solve the problem or if the Linux platform is fully abandoned by the QHY guys.

In my opinion the first step would be to integrate the fitsviewer as tab.

Patrick replied to the topic 'iOptron drivers differences' in the forum. 4 months ago

There is a Legacy driver that looks to be compatible with many iOptron mounts. This is the one I use because the firmware of my CEM60 is not up to date. So I can't use the CEM60 specific driver.
I guess that at least you can use it

I have two suggestions for new tools in Ekos.
First one a tool like the « brain » of Sharpcap to help to define the best exposure time under some sky quality.
Secondly a tool to evaluate and help the collimation quality based on the roundness of the stars.
It might work evaluating his roundness on the most brilliant stars (with thresholds to define). It might give graphically the zone where the collimation is the worst (grid or something else).

Re Jan,
I just tested the QHY183M with Indigoserver and it works fine with it. So this is not a problem of camera (I am reassured).
I don't know what version of the SDK is used in Indigo. But the problem looks to be either on the SDK used to build indi servers or in the indi server itself.

Patrick created a new topic ' Nikon issues' in the forum. 5 months ago

Two months ago I had many troubles using my Nikon D5300. I was unable to perform an Ekos polar alignment and had many driver crashes. Since one beginning of July I got my Nikon D5300 working really nice until 28/08 when I made an update of all indi drivers as proposed by my linux mint updater. Since the 26/08 I didn't use my setup. Yesterday I reactivated my setup and recover the problems I had 2 months ago. Looks like this is a regression in the driver. But is it one ?
The problem is that this problem seems to don't let any traces in the log files.
Is there a solution to go back to a previous version of the driver ?
