Picard replied to the topic 'Very unstable Raspberry Pi' in the forum. 1 month ago

Hi Adrien,

what's the pi model ? I'm use since 2 (or 3)years a pi (3 and now 4) for controlling mount, camera, focuser, gps, ... without problem. But always through the ethernet connection (with a cpl box). I controlling my mount with Bluetooth.

I noticed with my pi3, that the wifi connection wasn't very speed and is for this reason i didn't used. I suggest you, in the fist time, to test directly with an ethernet cable.

Hi,

you could use the cmake directive -DUSE_SYSTEM_LIBINDI=1 like this :

cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DOPENSOURCE_ONLY=1 -DUSE_SYSTEM_CFITSIO=1 -DUSE_SYSTEM_LIBUSB=1 -DUSE_SYSTEM_EIGEN3=1 -DUSE_SYSTEM_LIBINDI=1 ..

Make sure you have define in LDFLAGS the complet path to the libindi (ex : export LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/lib").

I just tested, and that work fine (i only tested with indi simulator).

Picard created a new topic ' ZWO FWUpdate fail (core dumped)' in the forum. 3 months ago

Hi,

I just had a Datyson T7 color (asi 120 MC clone). Like most people know now, we must "flash" with a compatible firmware for working on linux. I downloaded form ZWO website the fwupdate program. But, sadly, for an unknown reason, the program crash (code dumped). I try to launch with root, but i have the same issue. I checked the libs inside the program with ldd for verifying that is use the good libs.

If anyone had the fwupdate program, could you test it ?

I am on ubuntu 20.04.02, kernel 5.4.0-77

Thx.

Picard created a new topic ' misplaced meridian ?' in the forum. 5 months ago

Hi,

i would like to know if anybody meet the same issue.

in my understanding of the local meridian placement, he must go from north to south passing through north pole. But when i look into the kstars sky map my meridian is misplaced and the transit time of stars doesn't match with the cross line. I have mean 90 seconds of shift.

Hi,

i'm playing with the polar aligment routine (with indi simulator). Sometime that work, sometime not (kstars crash). I played with some configurations (essentially with 1-FastSolving and 7-MidSizedStars).

I attached the console capture (with the crash) and the separate astrometry log file.

I updated the stellarsolver lib this morning and kstars yesterday.


Thank.

i just tested with astap (fresh installation) your image and all it's ok (it's ngc7000 region). Have you installed the V17 stars database ?

also, check the parameters in the alignment tab.

Picard replied to the topic 'INDI Driver for SVBONY cameras' in the forum. 1 year ago

Hi Blaise,

I have a the API documentation. Very poor but she has the credit to exist.
I will try to work on the ROI implementation.
I seen your code and seriously he is clean.
Also, Do you think it's a good idea to propose all behavior of the camera that are "forced" to be programming by users ?

Regards

Hello Blaise,

good new ! the drivers work fine for me now. I had a problem with cfitsio. I removed the last cfitio from my /usr/local/lib for use the "official" package.

if you need help for coding or others things, i'm ready for help.

but, i cannot see the sv305 driver into kstars if i start indi in local mode. But, i see it if i launch in remote on localhost. but when i try to shoot a picture, the counter decrease to 0 abs kstars crash. I tested with phd2 and i have the same behavior.

Do you have a idea ?

Thank
