This would be very handy.

Does the setting in the solver for "Sync, Slew to Target, Nothing" play in here? I have had two nights lately where I set up captures through the "Camera and Filter wheel tab" that needed to do meridian flips. The flip was done successfully, and the frame was solved after the flip, but it never moved to the target after, and therefore never restarted capturing on the other side of the meridian. My workflow is to do the Alignment using the "Mount Model" with 2 stars, with the radio button set to "Sync" and then I set it to "Nothing" because I do not want additional sync points added once I am pretty well aligned. Too many sync points seems to be a problem. The rest of my night, I leave the setting on "Nothing", including during the meridian flip.

There are some solutions, but it depends on your operating system. The team here supports many Linux distributions, MacOS, and some Windows now, so please, when you are reporting a problem, or a "me too", specify what your OS is to assist in any debugging.

There is also a new user area that will walk you through adding such information to your signature, which is highly recommended. Find it here: indilib.org/forum/new-forum-users.html

My EFW does show up at HID under bInterfaceClass. I am also running the EFW from the USB hub on the 1600MC.

Richard, if the commands you listed were actually how you typed them, note the the last "make" should be on a new line/new command, not part of the cmake line.

When you want to test things, but your skies are not cooperating, create a test bench with spare parts...

 



I am running the latest build from git with the Fedora Copr (x86_64/AMD64), and everything seems to work fine with both the ZWO camera and the EFW.

 

Hopefully Jasem's re-create of the .debs will fix some things as well.

This seems to be a bug in the latest forum software, which was recently upgraded. Jasem is opening a ticket with the vendor.

@AIRBOURN you didn't provide any logs, so I don't know if your error is the same or not, but when you say latest nightly, you made sure to have the latest indilib as well as asi driver and library? I had thought this particular error was mitigated now.

Oops, I missed this, but I see you were able to get it merged. Thank you.

I find fewer drivers to be better, so chose a ZWO guider to go with ZWO mains. If the pair does not work, there is usually a good chance that the main will not work by itself either, so reverting 1 driver allows things to work again.
Right now is a good example, where the new ASI camera SDK appears to be causing some problems for myself and others. Reverting to the previous version, and both cameras work again.

I currently guide with a 290MM Mini, and quite like it.

I have not had any problems with my filter wheel either.
