Ollie replied to the topic 'QHYSDK 4.0.1' in the forum. 1 year ago

Here's the procedure I've had to use in Windows 10 and SGP. It allows me to control temperature (and see both temp and power levels) on a QHY247C. If I don;t follow this sequence, I basically have no control over or idea of what the cameras is doing for cooling.

- Power OFF everything, including the PC
- Power ON the QHY 247C
- Power ON the USB3 Hub
- Power ON PC
- Launch SGP and connect camera

I wonder if this same procedure might help with INDI. I had to switch over to Windows because of problems with QHY's Linux drivers so I can't test this procedure myself with INDI at the moment.

I'll also check their ASCOM support. Meanwhile, Matt at Planewave allowed me to share this info with the forum:

Hi Ollie,

Thanks for reaching out. We do not currently have INDI drivers for our mounts, but it is on our list for features to add. If you are interested in writing your own software we do offer a custom programming interface that can let you control the mount via a different machine on the network. i.e. using a Linux based machine to control mount software that's running on a Windows PC.

Best regards,

Does anyone know if Planewave offers an INDI driver (or plans to release one) for their direct drive mounts, such as the L-350?

I can contact them directly if nobody knows offhand.

Thank you,
Ollie

For question #2) When done imaging, can you disable dome slaving and then park (home) to the desired position?

I just installed the latest nightly packages and now the problem has vanished. I am able to take exposures without the error message about streaming being active.

Thank you for testing.

I have tried both the PPA and nightly build versions and am getting this error when trying to take an exposure:

Cannot take exposure while recording/streaming is active.

I verified that I that streaming is not enabled but the problem persists. Any suggestions on what to look for?

Thank you,
Ollie
