Peter Kennett created a new topic ' Bump - USB3 not working well on NanoPC T4' in the forum. 10 hours 53 minutes ago

Just checking if any new users here may have seen these symptoms before.
- NanoPC T4 with USB3.0 connected to an ASI1600MM Pro.
- Routine image capture, 20 second exposures, USB bandwidth set to 40.

First image - fails to download. After a few seconds the exposure starts again.
Second and third images download perfectly!
Forth and all subsequent images fail to download. The timer resets and it recaptures an image. No more images will download.
The log shows no errors.
I have tried three other USB3 cables, no change.
If I remove the USB3 cable and use a USB2 cable, everything works great - but at USB2 speed of course.

Has anyone seen symptoms like this before?

I have not tried a comparison yet. So far, its working fine, but I think I get some clear skies again I will try that. Clear skies are a rare thing here on the equator.

Also - try turning OFF the guider SUBFRAME option in the guider module.

Should be an easy fix. I have been guiding my CEM25 without an S-4 cable for a year now. I connect EKOS to the CEM25 mount via the iOptron StarFi WIFI now, but have used the standard RS232 cable too. Both work perfectly. I select the CEM25 mount in the VIA control box in the guider settings, and EKOS sends the correct guide commands.

Still do not know how to get the GIT. Will it show up in the nightly?

Yes, it stops on my T4 with Lubuntu too. I have not yet tried another VNC server install yet.

I downloaded the nightly built last night and for some odd reason I am now unable to get the preview screen to work in the summary module. I tried turning off and on the preview option, but no effect.

I did a nightly update last night, and this issue still remains. I am unable to calibrate with the sub-frame box checked.

Peter Kennett replied to the topic 'KStars 2.9.8 stopped counting exposure progress' in the forum. 1 month ago

It is fixed in the main CCD module, but not in the first summary module. In that module, the image counter no longer works at all. But the first image timer is working, and the final project counter (that shows progress of all job sequences) is working. The middle one that shows that number of images captured does not.

Thanks everyone! I changed the ownership to myself and also changed the perms to 777 just for god measure.
Worked well enough for me to get all the files I needed.

What's the significance of adding any time limit? Us living in third world countries may not the luxury of high speed internet. Is there a reason a time limit is needed?

Thanks, good info.
Can someone explain the definition of the various data numbers and how adjusting the proportional and integral gains effect the guiding?

Can anyone share a link or explains how I can use the data revealed during auto-guiding, to adjust the guiding settings to improve performance?

Thanks!

Hey Jasem,
I was doing this on Lubuntu 16.04. I didn't have log anything, but can next time.
I went ahead and downloaded the files outside of Kstars and manually added them to the proper location.

I have been trying to download the Astrometry files on a new install of Kstars. All worked great for downloading 8 of the files.
The system responded correctly. But when I tried to download additional files (Index 4209, 08, 07 and 06) it would just hand up after the download was complete.
After a few minutes I would get an error message stating that the Download times out. But then it would lock up EKOS and KSTARS forcing a reboot.
I tried this over two days with my internet working well. Each time it seemed to download correctly - but then the above would happen each time. I tried changing the order in which I downloaded the files. No effect. Lock up!

Anyone ever seen this and can offer a solution?

I have the NanoPC-T4 which is also an ARM 64 (RK 3399) running Lubuntu-desktop-xenial (16.04)
The Friendly eflasher version of Lubuntu had several bugs and missing parts in it that it was not usable, until I downloaded the fixes.
Now it runs great, and I have no trouble with the monitors. I did, however, finally decided to add a headless HDMI dongle and that works ever better.
I also noticed there is a lot of differences between VNC clients, and "Chicken on the VNC" was the best and fastest client for Mac.
