There doesn't seem to be a lot of interest in this issue.  I changed my 'check for updates' frequency so all software updates come at a lower frequency.

It was that or sudo apt uninstall libmallincam.

Just seems like a waste of resources.

That still doesn't explain why these two, among all the other packages, update at 10x the frequency.

And how do I get off the daily build version and go to stable build please?

It did it again. The revision numbers are just a date. Does the driver have a rolling code like a garage door opener? Is that why they need to be updated so often?

Every time I turn around there is an update for these.  Why?

Reasonably certain mount was unparked and tracking. First picture after a reboot (with guide camera) always looks like a dark (no stars) and in two nights of attempts it did work once, the first night.

So it can work, I think it's a robustness issue. The incantation has to be said just so...

Logs weren't enabled. It will have to wait for another clear night to test.

I'm having the exact same issue. Where are the logs you need?

Dana Tousley created a new topic ' New to autofocus' in the forum. 5 years ago

Moonlite appears to be functioning correctly, I'm able to take and download multiple photos with my DSLR (as a GPhoto CCD).

But autofocus hangs on first image. Does the image type NEED to be FITS? Because FITS doesn't appear to work for me, only native (Fujifilm RAF). If I take a 'light' image, it shows up in the FITS viewer correctly, but I'm thinking the autofocus routine doesn't really like me.

Anyone have any pointers?

Thanks in advance.

New update - crashing again.

Read More...

Has anyone had luck with this camera? I'm at a standstill getting my QHY 5LII M to work with PHD2 - it just won't and there isn't a lot of promise for the future. So I thought if I want to continue down this path it looks like my guide camera will need replacing. The newest fancy ZWO small planetary/guide camera is USB 3.0 - does that work with INDI?

Thanks in advance for your experience and help.

Dana

Starting to think it's the QHY driver. I also notice that using lusb, the QHY is the only item that doesn't list it's name. Is this normal for QHY cameras?

My apologies, I thought they all eventually came from GitHub. I used the a[t-get console commands.

And I've only been doing this for a month, but this is the second time this has happened in that month. Is there any software best practices I can implement to prevent this? Should I be using source code only? Or just refuse updates once something is working?

Downloaded the latest from GitHub today...

In the Connection tab of the INDI Control Panel there is no longer an option to specify the port for EQMOD-MOUNT. I have created a udev rule to bind it to telescopemount and dev/telescopemount exists so I believe that part is correct..

But upon attempting connection...

KStars detected INDI driver indi_eqmod_telescope crashed. Please check INDI server log in the Device Manager.

This is what I find in the Device Manager:
