I just came here to mention two issues with my QHY camera that I know about so far. One is the mentioned temperature issue. I did accidentally get it to work and saw in the log that the cooler came on but it was a total accident and I could not repeat it.

The second thing is that my QHY16200A camera has an "overscan" area which is to the right of the photo. ASCOM driver allows you to check a box to "remove overscan area". Here is an example of the ascom driver. See the checkbox on the right: www.qhyccd.com/bbs/index.php?action=dlat....0;attach=9492;image

The Overscan is an area of the image from top to bottom that is a rather large unexposed area. Here is an example: www.qhyccd.com/bbs/index.php?action=dlat....0;attach=8458;image

Pretty much I can not use this camera with ekos until both of these issues are addressed. I have another camera I can use, two other cameras actually, but they are both one shot color cameras and I live in a red zone so I like to do narrowband with my QHY from home.

*both linked images are from QHY's website and are not my own.

Micheal Fields replied to the topic 'MPBox weather can't connect' in the forum. 3 months ago

The difference between connected vs disconnected is this line which I assume is what you are after.

Bus 001 Device 005: ID 0403:6015 Future Technology Devices International, Ltd Bridge(I2C/SPI/UART/FIFO)

When scanning USB ports with indi it finds the following
/dev/ttyACM99 and /dev/ttyUSB0
With the device unplugged USB0 disapears. I manually "set" the port to that port and tried to connect again.

I guess the MGP box is so different from the Mbox that it just isn't going to work. Thanks for trying to help. :)

Thanks! Having the webmanager service running solved my immediate concerns.

The command line for the terminal only works as long as I don't close the terminal.
Also adding the command to /etc/rc.local before the 0 exit works for 2 out of three drivers. For some reason the asi driver doesn't load if I enter it there. Mount and focuser load no problem though.

But the webmanager allows me to have indiserver load on startup and I can connect remotely with ekos/kstars and continue forward with my testing.

Thanks!

Thank you so much! I just emailed you about this a few days ago and someone else posted this thread lol. Great minds think alike.

I have ekos/indi on my Ubuntu 18.04 LTS system. When I start kstars/ekos and then press the play button to start INDI, my remote computer (windows 10) can connect just fine. However if something goes wrong or the remote computer crashes I don't know how to get everything to re-start up again so a remote computer can connect.

Obvious work around is teamviewer but that is resource hogging and with this fanless PC I'd rather not have anything running that I don't need to have running.

I can't figure out how to start the webserver on a local setup. The remote PC has a webserver button but not the local one? I was thinking that it would start a web server automatically when you launched kstars but that doesn't seem to be the case. If it were I could just add kstars to the auto-start options for ubuntu.

What do I need to do? I search through the youtube tutorial videos and can't find any that mention how to set it up.

Micheal Fields created a new topic ' MPBox weather can't connect' in the forum. 4 months ago

Hello there

I have an MPBox and saw that it was an option for a device under weather.

Currently the device is on com6 on my windows PC. So I unplug it and plug it into the linux system (odroid xu4) and attempt to connect to it.

I can't seem to find it. No problem finding my focuslynx controller that also uses com ports. That connects just fine and shows accurate information about my focuser.

But for some reason I can't get Ekos to find the MPBox. I verified I can see it perfectly with the Windows PC.

Any ideas on what I can try? Thanks

Not sure what I am doing wrong. I've had this working fine in the past. Wanted to give kstars/ekos another go on my linux box and control it remotely with my windows machine. windows 10 Pro 64. Downloaded kstars (lastest build) and installed fine. When I launch it I get an error that says jasper.dll not found.

What went wrong?

Thanks

I've been off these forums and not using the software for a while now hoping that QHY issues would have been resolved by now. Poked my head in the door to see what was new and found this thread.

I will wait several more months.

Well since I started with a clean slate I am sure I have the latest release. I have 18.04 TS ubuntu-mate forum.odroid.com/viewtopic.php?t=30888&p=225146

Honestly I am not interested in continuing to test and take logs at this point. I bought Stellarmate from you (the image) but that doesn't work either on my Pi3b. I'll try back in a year and see how things are going. For now I am back to Win10.

Identical issue as before. Upon taking an exposure and downloading data the driver crashes.
