Paolo created a new topic ' canon mirror lockup' in the forum. 5 days ago

Hi all.
I noticed that if I not set the mirror lockup on my canon eos 50D , after the first shot all other shots are a black frame.
So my question is if I must alway s et the mirror lockup on canon or if there is other option to set on ekos.
Some days ago I tried to use a canon 1100D (with baader filter), but this camera has not the mirror lockup function and I'm not able to take shots.... fore hre previous reason (after the first shot all others are a black frame).

Any suggestion?

Thanks in advance.

Hi PHOMER60,
you are right.
I'm using a Canon 50D attached directly to my Raspberry via USB and all images taken from my Canon are downloaded directly to my laptop (that it is connected via wireless to my Raspberry PI).
Of course in my laptop there is enough free disk space available.

Thanks.

Hi Ihoujin,
I did some test and you are right.
The issue is due to teh gain option that, after teh update, it was reset to zero.
Now I set it to 10 and now seem to be came back to works all correctly.

Thanks

Hi to all.
I'm using indi on my raspberry PI3 (ubuntu mate 16.04).
After to have updated to latest version all indi packages my QHY5 is not more able to works well.
Before the upgarde with 2 seconds of exposure I was able to see man stars, after the updates I'm not more able to see any stars,,, only a black windows appear.
I need to increase up to 7, 8 seconds to see some stars... but however the guider is not able to trak the stars or guide correctly.

What's happen?
Thanks in advance.

Kind regards
Paolo

Hi to all,
I would like to purchase the ASI071MC PRO.
I see from this site that this CCD should be works correctly with linux adding the correct PPA for firmware.
I also see taht should be some issue related to the USB bandwidth... so is not clear for me if the ASI071MC PRO is working well with Linux.

Thanks in advance.
