Perhaps an idea. I had the same problem with a meade Sc 8" and an atik 314L+ (So with a small field).
When I change the back focus with the camera (because I use a fliterwheel or not, ...), to focus it changes the position of the primary miror. So the focal change.
And with a 6.3 reductor, the focal is not necessary 1260.
Now, I have resolved the field of an image with astrometry.net, I noticed the focale, and I reported it in Kstars/Ekos (For me, it is 1170, not 1260). And I try to have always the same backfocus.
And I try not to touch the position of the primary miror to focus.
I use yesterday for the first time this new driver. It is very good to have a free driver for atik.
I schedule poses of 300s.
The images stops after 30 exposures (But it was time to sleep).
I don't now why, I will look at the logs.
Anyway, it is a good news to have a free atik driver.
I use tle avalonStarGo driver for a while, and I did not encounter any problem. I use the mount functions, not the focuser function.
I think it is a good idea to add now avalonstarGo driver to the main indi repository.
Thanks for the work.
I understand your sadness, and I am wholeheartedly with you.
Tell yourself that your companions have been happy with you.
I go back a year when I separated from my 4-legged friend.
You are a good person.
I change my differents equipments in the Indi Panel, mount tab, and option tab.
Here you can define, several profiles with a diameter and a focal length for the primary equipment, and a diameter and a focal length for the guide equipment,
Then you set the values and save.
Perhaps there is a better solution, but I don't know.
Hello Wolfgang, hello CanisUrsa,
You join your work to write one driver : VERY GOOD NEWS.
Can you add a function in your driver : PushCloud () Because it is very difficule to test and use your driver with cloud.
I am waiting the information for the new one, to know if it will be int the git space of Wolfgang or CanisUrsa.
Sorry, I don't see your last messages, but I see the response of jpaana was very good.
Problems are very good to learn indi.
Perhaps an idea : atik indi drivers work with ubuntu version 16.04. With 17.04, 17.10 there are problems with version of some libraries.
The problems come in execution, not in installation.
To correct it, I run the test of the atik driver. You find in the result the name of the librairies missing with the good version.
I do a "cp -p <librairy version on the machine>.so <library version needed for atik driver>.so"
You must perform the operation for the atik filter wheel driver too.
No three devices :
- an old laptop with ubuntu 17.10 32 bits.
- a newer one with ubuntu 16.04 64 bits.
I will try it on an asus Thinkerboard ( lroge.scenari-community.org/KstarsEkosIndi/#Materiel ).
It is a good idea to contact Luciano.
I build it and test il yesterday night in my garage.
I do a synchronisation with th button in the indi panel, then I do some gotos.
The area pointed was always good.
Next step, I try it on the sky.
Very goog job !!!!!
Good Wolfgang. No : very good.
I will build it and test and try it.
