Magnus Larsson replied to the topic 'Mount model' in the forum. 4 weeks ago

Hi!

I have a Losmandy G11, and I thought that this mount could not benefit from the Mount model in Ekos. Is there a way to upload the model to the mount, or is it jus saved in Ekos?

My understanding is that if it is just preserved in Ekos, then why would the mount type matter?

Yes, as you can hear, I don't really understand what the "Mount model" does. Even now....:/

Hi!

As I understand it, it primarily means the subs will be saved in a subfolder called "Dark". Nothing else. How does your camera behave, then, using the Dark setting?

Hi!

Just for quick evaluation or more serious processing? I use PixInsight under Linux for most things. But... it is heavy and is somewhat costly.

Hi!

You are just amazing!! Thanks a lot!

OK, so you suggest that it is better not to use a HFR value as a criterion in the scheduler? Good point. It is really time consuming. Will try tonight.

Best,

Magnus

Hi!

Recently, I've had a load of problems - from software problems to guiding being awful. Last night, everything seemd to work (almost) well. So I set up the scheduler to capture throughout the nigt - 50 exposures. Waking up shortly before 4 am (to check the weather), I found the scheduler running but only 7 exposures taken - no exposure for the last 3 hours. Attached is the log. There seems to be nothing happening with the camera (Canon 1000D) between 00:37 and around 3:40, when I terminated the scheduler and manually started one exposure, the shut everything down.

So what is happening here? What happens at around 00:37 that stops the Canon 1000D from capturing?

Hi!

Thanks for your suggestions. As for USB-stuff: short cables, and an industry level USB-hub, powered by 12V.

The issue us highly intermittent - I've not seen it since I posted. However, when aligning, I regularly get "solver timed out, capturing again. Cannot capture while camera is in use (or something similar), Retrying in 10 secs". THen it captures. I have no idea if that is related.... I'll try to post logs when/if it turns upp again.

Best,

Magnus

Hi!

I think I have a somewhat intermittent and frustrating issue. My captures seems to fail repeatedly, but somewhat intermittently. My setup is a Stellarmate R-Pi, with a Canon 1000D connected. Nightly buids, updated today.

What happens is (among several similar scenarios): I take a preview, 1 sec. No problems. I take a second - I get:
"Restarting capture attempt #1". And the camera seems to snap images, at times snap-snap, two almost overlapping. But nothing downloading to Kstars. THen, after a while, it works again.

Sometimes, I can interrupt and cancel, and then it works again. Sometimes not.

Attached a log for this, log_20-19-15.txt.

THen I succeded in trying a capture sequence. Focusing worked, one sub was captured, then focusing again, and now there was a "timeout". ANd then Kstars crashed.

Log attached, log_20-43-05.txt

(interestingly enough, I could not transfer these logs via FTP - I had to shutdown the R-Pi and move them via an external memory stick)

Hrm. Focus logging WAS enabled....?

Now I've done an dist-upgrade, and retried. Now ti seems to work. I'll get back if it returns.

Hi!

I guess you have to have the nightly builds PPA installed, see under Nightly Builds here:
indilib.org/download/ubuntu.html

At least that is the way I have it. As I get it, it is just stable by default (and for good, stable, reasons).

Best,

Magnus

Hi!

OK, after reformatting my external drive, it seems to work. But.... then i freezes when trying to focus. I have a DIY arduino box with moonlight driver. I just freesez after first exposure. Any ideas? Log file attached.

Hi!

Maybe this is the same issue as Fits-viewer crashing Kstars. When taking previews, it works, but when stting a sequence, download takes forever and eventually fails - no fits-viewer loads (or loads and disapperas in a blink).

I have a Canon 1000D, Indiserver running on a Stellarmate R-Pi. Log attached (I hope).

Hi!

I'm not sure what you mean. I have a guidecam in the profile, so that Indiserver starts with the module loaded. And PHD" connects to the Indiserver.

I've had the same setup for a long while, but this behavior only started very recently, possibly after latest upgrade to Kstars 3.0.0 (not really sure though).

Hi!

OK. Kstars 3.0.0, running on Stellarmate, on a R-Pi 3. Guidecam is Lodestar.

Stupid question: how do I put that in my signature....? I click on Profile tab above, then "Edit" in the signature window header, then what...?

Hi!

There used to be an issue, that the image from the guide scope was shown in a FIts viewer window as well as in PHD2 when using PHD2 as external guider. Then this was solved. Now this happens again for me. THere used to be a solution by unchecking the checkbox in Indi Image Info tab, for Image Data. However, now this seems not to solve the issue, at least not for me. So get the FITS viewer window popping up in a somewhat irritating way, every 2nd second - until I move it away at the bottom of the screen.

Is there a way to solve this?
