MORELLI created a new topic ' How to change the dimensions in pixels of a Canon 1000D ?' in the forum. 7 days ago

I set up for my Canon 1000D after reading a website, L=3382 and H=2588. But my flat are not centered because the real values are 3888 and 2592.
I change the values in the INDI parameter of the DSLR (Image parameters and Image information) and save the profile, but in Ekos i have always the same old values. I delete the profile in the /.indi directory, but no changes.
How to change these values in Ekos, please ?

It seems if you set up an eposure time greatest then the final right exposure for flat, the process goes wrong.

I tried nightly version and the flat calibration runs but with some strange issue. I have not identified precisely the problem. I left the exposure time at 1 sec by default. the process starts and after 2 or 3 capture, it stops with message: Cannot set the right exposure or something like that.
I change the time exposure from 1 to less than 1sec. I restart the process and It runs well or not. It is difficult to reproduce precisely the issue.
I read the log but I am not enough fluent to understand everything.
The material is a Canon 1000D unfiltered, ADU manual, ADU=2700 +/- 100.

Thank you for you support.

It seems to be an electronic mount problem. The park coordinates cannot be recovered by Indi. But in that case, there are any message or warning from indi or Ekos. It should be.

Is there anybody out there ? I can't use Sktars-Ekos for imaging.

Withe the telescope simulation driver, the mount is located on the polaris at the start. Not with the Celestron Nexstar.

I use for Celestron AVX the Celestron Nexstar driver. SInce an update, when Ekos starts, the mount into KStar is not located ont he polar star. It is far from under the horizon or near the Sun. I have the same problem with Skychart , used with Indi and the same driver.

So it is impossible to do a PA by example.

My mount runs well in alone mode.

HI,

I have some troubles with the PA. The Kstars version is the last 2.9.8. My devices are mount Celestron Nextar (Celestron AVX) and a Canon 1000D.
Once the PA launched, the first capture is made and the resolution gives a curious result. Instead the telescope coordinate are RA: 12H00:00 DEC: 0H00:00, the calculated result is RA:23H12:48 DEC:89°39:57. The second process capture image begins and I obtain the message: " Requested altitude is below the horizon. Are you sure you want to proced ?

I have a look on the log and I notice that it speak of a Celestron GPS mount and not a Celestron Nextar.

Can you give me some help please ?

I make an update yesterday and I try to make flat with a Canon 1000D and a box led flat.
I choose flat in TYPE field.
In Calibrage I set flat source manual an d flat duration ADU=2500 (correct for a 1000D?)
I set 10 images and save the sequence.
I launch the sequence. Ekos takes one shot (with the exposure set int the screen 1 sec by default) and stop. The status of the sequence is inactive. If I restart this, back to the desktop directely.

I join the log file.

What happens ? Thank you for your help.
