Hello,
Remember the love you gave to them during their lives.
Only time will help you to overcome this, so it is a good decision to take some time off.
Thank you for all what you are doing on kstars.

Florian Signoret replied to the topic 'Add settle down time after auto guiding start or resume' in the forum. 3 months ago

Hello Alacant,

But with this solution, the delay is applied for all exposures, right?
The delay should only be applied when guiding is resumed, after a 'Pause' or 'Dither' action.
Otherwise, we are losing precious imaging time.

Clear skies,
Florian

Florian Signoret created a new topic ' Kstars FITS viewer default window position' in the forum. 3 months ago

Hello,

Each time the Kstars FITS viewer window is opened, the position is defaulted outside the screen, making it hard to move it, reduce it or close it.
See attached screenshot.

Thanks

Hello,

I have the same issue: when Autofocus is pausing the guiding, then starting it again, the next image is captured without any delay.
After Autofocus, the star can have drifted a lot, and we need to wait a bit before capturing.

Thanks.

Florian Signoret created a new topic ' Crash while removing a job from the sequence queue' in the forum. 3 months ago

Hello,

I had a list of jobs in the sequence queue, stopped the current job.
When starting again the first job, it was starting the second one.
So, I decided to remove the second job from the queue.

At that point, Kstars crashed. From the crash file, I extracted the following stack:

Program terminated with signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Hello,

An update on this one: fixed by disabling MessageManager, so now I am operational with Ubuntu-Mate.
I will let you know when I get a chance to test with the AP1600.

Thanks for letting me know about the date/time bug, it now explains why my mount had a wrong time at some point!
Is there a tracker for this bug?

Thanks
Regards,
Florian

Hello,

Since I moved from Raspbian to Ubuntu Mate, it appears I have a similar issue.
I added the rules to prevent ModemManager from grabbing the device.
However, I am still getting the error.

Syslog says:

How did you solve the issue (if you did) ?

I have just installed the driver from the CloudMakers website, and it works again.
I will let you know about the connectivity with the AP1600 next time I can test it.

Hello,
Thanks for the reply.
I installed Ubuntu Mate on my Raspberry Pi.
Now, I cannot connect my USB Focus any more :

2018-04-14T20:49:35: [INFO] Error retreiving data from USB Focus V3, please ensure USB Focus V3 controller is powered and the port is correct.
2018-04-14T20:49:35: [ERROR] Error reading focuser ID: Timeout error.

Florian Signoret created a new topic ' Driver issues with AP1600 mount' in the forum. 6 months ago

Hello,

I am trying to connect the AP1600 mount to kstars through INDI server running on Raspberry Pi.

In Ekos, in the driver list, I can see:
- "AstroPhysics indi_lx200ap"
- "AstroPhysics Experimental indi_lx200ap_experimental".

If I select the first one, it will fail to connect to the server.
Indeed, on the raspberry, I do not see any "indi_lx200ap". But instead, I see "indi_lx200ap_legacy".
I installed the drivers from the 1.6.0 package distributed here: indilib.org/download/raspberry-pi/downlo...or-raspberry-pi.html

If I use the experimental one, everything seems to be fine.
When I tried to park/unpark the mount, I reached the situation that slews from both kstars and the remote were leading to nonsense moves of the mount.
At that point, even the parking to position 3 (CW down) was leading to nonsense moves.
In order to fix that, I had to synchronize the mount on a star with the remote.
I am quite surprised: I thought that this position was not dependant on any mount calibration (azimut and altitude shoud be independant from any time/position)?
Note: before doing my tests, I had not noticed the special instructions about the parking positions.

- How to fix the setup for the legacy driver?
- Or, if you advise to still use the experimental driver, how to avoid these parking/slewing problems?

Thank you.
Regards,
Florian

OK, after some search, I found the command:
indiserver indi_atik_wheel

which outputs:
2018-03-20T20:21:08: Driver indi_atik_wheel: indi_atik_wheel: error while loading shared libraries: libcfitsio.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I will try to reinstall this one as well.

Hello !
Thank you so much ! By installing libnova 0.14, the ATIK works! :)

However, the Filter wheel is still failing.
Should I do the same for some other libs?

Jean-Jacques, how to run the test you are talking about?
I did not know there was some.

Thanks!
Florian
