Sorry to maybe hijack this, but from your capture Jasim, it seems the Altair astro cameras are supported now? If so, the devices page needs to be updated! I am in need of a new guidecam and I was looking at those for a while and holding, waiting for indi support...

You need to use the nightly builds, there are instructions on how to enable them in the Ubuntu format page.

What kind of issues were you having? With Ubuntu mate it should be just a matter of apt install kstars..

Besides, I must say that I am not a big fan of running everything on the little raspberry. It seems like squeezing too much into it. I currently use it as an indilib gateway to the network and then I use kstars and ekos on the notebook. Have you considered this approach?

The attachment is missing from that message. Can you repost that firmware please?

Before I borrow my friend's QHY8, I'd like to know if any changes have been made to this camera driver at all. We tried a few months back, but we had several difficulties, with the firmware first, which wouldn't work with the camera at all and had to download a different one, and we were then unable to stop a capture without locking the camera up.
If anyone thinks it would be a good thing to try, I can get the camera and make a few tests.
Thanks for any info!

Fabio Papa replied to the topic 'guider/camera recommendation please' in the forum. 7 months ago

I'm curious as to why chosing a color camera for guiding. Won't you give up some sensitivity? What about this one, instead, which is even on sale: www.teleskop-express.de/shop/product_inf...tive-Autoguider.html

No one has any idea? Are there people using this with a guiding focal length that's shorter than the main OTA?

Hi,
is the internal guiding software capable of subpixel detection as is the case for PHD/PHD2? If so, what's the limit for the movement detection? I seem to recall the default PHD configuration sets the minimal movement down to 0.2 pixels but you can go even lower, and I'd like to know cause I'm evaluating some mini guider hardware for my setup.
Thanks!

Okay, we can close this one: I don't know what happened that night, but I have both the option and the autodetect is working fine.
Something definitely happened but I have no clue what.
Sorry for the noise.

Well, I'm kinda embarassed as to how I managed to miss the entire "Basic options" row, but it's there allright...
But Jasem, the auto detect isn't working: I can confirm I have astrometry.net v0.73 but still no fits2fits is selected by default.

Fabio Papa replied to the topic 'New-ish astrometry.net and Ekos' in the forum. 7 months ago

Jasem, does that mean the option isn't there anymore? If so, the auto detect was definitely not working as it kept using the option.
Actually, I do remember some sort of warning about that option the first time I chose offline solve.. But I might be imagining things, it was dark and very cold!

Fabio Papa replied to the topic 'New-ish astrometry.net and Ekos' in the forum. 7 months ago

Are you absolutely positive the option is still there in the latest stable ppa? I'm not in front of it right now but I looked long and hard for the option yesterday night and couldn't find it..
