Patrick created a new topic ' CEM60 calibration doesn't work' in the forum. 5 months ago

Hello all,
I installed the last version of the set Kstars/Ekos/Indi.
I already had calibration problems with previous versions and had to use PHD2 whicj worked quite fine.
I hopped that this version could have fixed the problem.
But it is worse.
The mound doesn't move while the impulsions for AD are sent.
I don't understand what is wrong as the mount react fine with PHD2. I despair to have it working some day.
Guys have you suggestions ?

Patrick created a new topic ' Gain scale for risingcam imx571' in the forum. 5 months ago

Hello all,
In previous versions of INDI the gain scale for this cam was from 0 to 10000.
In the current version the scale is limited to 0 to 100 (touptek driver is used for this cam).
Do I have to do something in parameters to set eh good scale or does it exist a correspondence table between old values and new values somewhere?
Thanks

Hello all,
I have a weird behaviour with the last version of Ekos/Indi on RPi 4.
Let me explains:
Mount is an "old" CEM60.
I start Indi and connect all the devices including the mount.
Until there all goes fine.
I want to unpark the mount. From the virtaul handpad no way, from the Ekos Tab no way. The only way is to unpark it with the tab of the mount in the INDI control panel.
However if the mount is unparked it can't be driven by the vcirtual handpad which remains "mute".
Just the Goto/Astromery works.

Too bad, so I will continue using Ekos but will follow the evolution of your project.

I use Linux Mint 20.4 and higher on my PC and Ubuntu MATE on the RPi.
What I wanted to say is that I didn't find any place to declare the guiding camera and guiding optic when guiding in parallel (what I am doing).

@DENIS
I just tested the latest version. And I am enthusiast about your project.
I searched the guider daclaration in the gui without founding it. Is it normal or is this not yet implemented ?
Would be nice to have some themes under control to be able to change the ui apparence. On my PC the ui appears in white.
But that a great idea to offers a tab oriented gui to INDI.
Cheers

[Solved] the driver has moved from Toupcam to Omegon cameras for only Rpi versions of Ekos/INDI. On Linux PC versions the driver is still in Toupcam. Another explanation is that the driver in Toupcam, in RPi case is a lot buggy and by chance the Omegon one fits to the Risingcam.
But how did we wasn't awared about it ?

I reactivate this topic.
Since now many versions the calibration with my CEM60 doesn't works. The mount doens't move or move erratically.
PHD2 has no problem to calibrate. Seems that the problem is not in INDI but more certainly in Ekos.
I forgot to say that I use a RPi 4 / 4Gb.
If someone had or have the problem and found a way to fix that problem I would be pleased to know how.

Up this topic because I still have the problem with the Risingcam IMX571. The cam is not recognized by INDI driver. I use the Touptek driver and the previous version of INDI (before the 2.0.2).
If someone met this problem and found a way to circumvent the problem I would be pleased to know how.
cheers

I update Indi on my Raspberry PI. Looks like the driver fail to start.
Does anyone met same issue ?
Hopefully I kept the previous version of Indi.

Thanks, found it in tools->devices->... .
Looks weird to separate this feature from Ekos as this is a main part of profile definition out of any device connection.
Also because you don't change the optical train at each session.
I have not all elements that justify this choice, but to my opinion it makes Ekos more fragmented and then more uneasy to use and less understandable.

Nice but where do we define that train settings ? Didn't see anything in Ekos.

I started the last version of Ekos/INDI from 6/04 (means 2.01).
When I look the define profile pad. The entry to choose or define main and guide optics disappeared. Where did they have gone ?
Thanks

I made a new card with the last version of Kstars/Ekos/INDI. Copied all config files.
I tested it 2 days ago.
The problem of calibration is still the same: Unable to calibrate under EKOS because of no motion on RA but PHD2 has no problem to calibrate.
Weird because all worked fine 2 or 3 versions back.

Hello Arnaud,
Is it on a iOptron mount ?
If yes symptoms are the same for me.
Have you tried to use PHD2 to see if it is a mount/mount driver/Indi/Ekos problem.
If calibration works with PHD2 Indi and mount/mount driver are out of the question.
But I didn't check yet last updates.
