That wasn't good, I'm satisfaid with my USB-Focus, but next time I build one myselfe, some Aurdino based. Tomorrow I adjust the focus range to 50'000 as you sugested.

Hi Jarno,

Thanks for fast respons. I thought about the wraparound problem, but when I set the max position to 65000 I though it was impossible for it to wraparound. I use a camera lens and don't have much travel beyond the infinity, but still I can mechanically move the focuser so it ends at position 50000 or so. No need to go to lower focus positions.

Thanks a lot !

Hi,
I have some strange problem. Sometimes when doing auto focus it goes allt the way to zero. Not very often but I had this problem at least three times.

I have the USB Focus V3. Astrobarry 204.

Good focus is around 63900, limit at 65000.

Someone have any idea why it doing like this ?

Include some screendumps

 



One of the focus point almost at zero but correct fous at 63900 where most focus points are..

 

Limit set to 6500. There are also two error messages:

"WARNING] Error reading response for command FPOSRO: Timeout error. "

"WARNING] Invalid response for command FPOSRO: missing cr+lf "

What does the command FPOSRO do ?

Maybe something that Ekos put into the FITS header when it transform the raw file temporarly to FITS. Something that mekae FITS Viewer to handle it different.

I haven't find any setting for 8/16 bit either for FITS Viewer.

Okay, then I understand better.

I save my Canon files as Native, but temporarly they must be in fits format. So what I see in the Fitsviewer is converted native files because Fitsviewer can only display fits files, or ?

I'm not sure if I understand, do you mean you get a histogram with Fits data, 1-65550 ? My histogram is always 0-255, Canon 6D raw, CR2 files.

How to setup Fits/Histogram to that ?

See screendump:

Strange, when I ggoled on this subject one year ago I got the impression that it was very difficult. Now I ahve at least two solutions, WinSCP works very well, but I will test Astroberry VNC later.

Thanks for all information !

Hi Giles,
Now I have used the Raspberry many nights. After your and some others tips i got it to start correct most times. When I don't get the correct USB addresses, mostly because I forget to power on the mount, I reboot one or maybe two times and then everything is up and workning.

Thanks a lot for all help !

Hi,
I have the Astroberry latest version. It works very well now after all help from here.

But there is something I have little problem with. When searching for object to put on the target list it's difficult to find them. I can of course search for them. But if I want to see the label of the DSO I don't get the name of them until I zoom in very deep. And it had been nice if the Messier name had come up. I have looked for a setting to control how the name shall appear but can't find anything to control this.

 



There are small blue dots everywhere, but who knows which is wich witout zooming in.

I'm used with CdC where I can control the magnitude that shall be displayed on the map. The label of the DSO also appear without to zoom too much.

Also it's hard to have an overview of the comets on the sky.

 

I can search the comets and they come up. But if I want, say all comets stronger then mag 8, is there a way to do that ?

When I try to update the orbital data of comets I get an error message about asteroids.

Hi,
I tested that to, but still I get the error message: Failed to read image libusb_bulk_transfer() failed.

Maybe I missed some setting. But I'm satisfaid with the internal guider now. Very handsome.

Hi Andrew,
That's almost exact how I did with PHD2 when it was installed in my old Windows server. I wrote a turorial abut it, maybe outdated now:

www.astrofriend.eu/astronomy/tutorials/t...met-autoguiding.html

Today I changed to Astroberry setup on Raspberry. But the problem I got this season is that PHD2 doesn't work anymore in my Astroberry, see my thread:

www.astrofriend.eu/astronomy/tutorials/t...met-autoguiding.html

When I couldn't get the PHD2 work anymore I shifted to Ekos internal guider and it worked very well now with the last update. So I felt it could be good to only use that guider. Very happy with it. But still, it could be a very good alternative to have the PHD2 auto guide to work again.
