Hello, I assume from your post that all devices are directly connected to your computer.
I run Mac and Linux systems, but Kstars/EKOS seem to be consistent with menus. Do you have a listing under 'tools' then 'devices'?
If you can find 'devices', it can be used to connect to the cameras. This server log will give you a listing of errors if it fails to connect. Make sure your camera has not been automounted by another program. The Orion guide scope is supported natively under windows using their drivers and should work. Try working on one device at a time without anything else connected. FYI when you start EKOS, look at the 'Logs' tab. Enable what is applicable and post the results with the log. There is a link somewhere on this site on how to enable logs, worth watching.

Hello there,
Try this, after you download the package, open it and move to it Application or some other folder, right click open. This will allow the package to extract and you will be given a choice to OPEN or CANCEL. This bypasses opening security preference pane. High Sierra uses SIP.

Hello, I downloaded your sample shot. Opened it in Nebulosity4, FitsLiberator, FITSPreview and KStars (openFits). All looked good.
What are your settings for FITS files under "configuration>FITS"?
For my Canon 60D, I have gotten good results with turning off "Auto_Debayer" and "3D Cube".

Hello, I have a Starsense and it helps setup mount model on startup (in a red zone); that is all it does.
Currently it cannot be used as a guide scope, see this link

OK, the crash logs were both different, I though Robert may have already deployed the changes. Guessing I am too eager. I will now try the newest.

Andrew Couture replied to the topic 'QHY163M driver' in the forum. 7 months ago

I should have asked, what are you running KStars on? e.g. laptop with RPi? just laptop/desktop? Are you running the current version with applied updates? Are you running Ubuntu/windows/Mac or using VMs? Is the camera plugged into a USB HUB or direct to computer? Can you see what power it is drawing down? Are the cables good? (try a different set).
You do not need to edit the rules to push the firmware to the camera just CL
Here is another link for .dep based package;
github.com/qhyccd-lzr/QHYCCD_Linux_New
It says under Update 2 "changed rules to get QHY163 and FX3 cams working"
Looks easy to install, just run the install script - can't hurt to try

Andrew Couture replied to the topic 'QHY163M driver' in the forum. 7 months ago

Hello, feel your pain.
I see that the device is found and listed using lsusb, but it doesn't show any descriptors. If the firmware loaded successfully it would a readable name. What does the device list when you try 'demsg -wH' ? Do you get errors and what are they? Additionally, this is a USB3 device, have a look at this link to help get you started.
qhyccd.com/bbs/index.php?topic=5958.01618
Have you tried pushing the firmware to this camera? If you look (cat) the file located at /lib/udev/rules.d/85-qhy.rules it should show you an example for using fxload3.
Hope this is enough to get you started
