2018-07-17T21:03:45: [INFO] Debug is enabled.

Picard created a new topic ' Parameters to pass to a script' in the forum. 9 months ago

Hello,

it's would be interesting if i could have some variables to pass to a script.

I explain me

After each photography i can call a script to do something on the image. But, to do that, i must known, at minimum, the name of the picture file. It's would be great if i could get the iso, the duration, the sequence index, ...

that will be sound like that : myscript.sh %picture% %iso% %duration%

Thank you.

Picard replied to the topic 'Big patch for streaming, please test.' in the forum. 11 months ago

Hi Rob,

i upload on the client and the directory exist. I checked on the indi control panel and on the ekos ccd tab. I use the live video on Ekos CCD tab and i choose the destination directory in the recording options windows. No confuse is possible.

I tested that i could take and record a picture with the sequence queue. It's work fine. But, after that, if i want to back in live video, the fps is the same that the exposition time...

Hi,

I taked the last git.

The message about the pixel format has disappeared but i can always not display streamed with the eos1000D. Same issue (driver freeze).

i have discovered an another issue. In the ccd tab in Ekos, and with the ASI120mm, i can't record video in my home directory. I have a permission denied.

2017-12-03T15:07:30: [WARNING] Can not create record directory /home/christian/Astro/captures/video/: Permission denied 
2017-12-03T15:07:30: [WARNING] mkpath: can not create /home/christian

Also, the image size in ekos CCD tab, is wrong for the height (see capture) while in indi control panel she is exact. This appear only with the EOS not with the ASI.

Picard replied to the topic 'Big patch for streaming, please test.' in the forum. 11 months ago

Hi,

I just compiled the last github indi repository (1.6).

i tested the streaming in remote (from my laptop to the rpi3 over ethernet). With the asi 120 MM, i have a small gain in frame/sec and the image rate seem me be more stable when i use mjpeg encoder rather the raw encoder.

With the canon eos 1000d (same config), i have a fail with the driver when i use streaming. No picture is display and the driver seem freezed (i must down indiserver and shutdown the dslr). I have the message below :

2017-12-02T17:16:10: [ERROR] Pixel format is not supported by SER recorder. 

May be i should install the theora ogg library ?

Picard replied to the topic 'Question about ekos mosaic' in the forum. 1 year ago

Hi Jasem,

thank you for you quick reply.

if i well understood, i must in first create a job in the scheduler, like anywhere job, on the DSO target that will "mosaiced" with my sequence and after, only after, with the mosaic tool, create all sub-jobs. That is good ?

i thought, may be in wrong, that only the jobs created by the mosaic tool been enought.

If that, the wording is very clear.

Picard created a new topic ' Scheduler start time evaluation error' in the forum. 1 year ago

Hi,

i discovered a bug into the scheduler (yes, i work much with him). When i add an object to the sequence list and if this object is in below the limit altitude, the time proposed is very far and always 11:37 pm ((after click on the evaluate button) !!!! But if i add another object in the sequence list, also below the limit, the first object (after click again on the evaluate button) has the good start time and the new object will be starting at 11:37pm.

I tested add two time the same objet (this behavior is reproductibles with two different objects, the limit was fixed to 21°:
