Oh this is great news.
Actually i allready got mine and it is up and running.
Tried to use the driver provided in KStars 3.4.2 but this makes the system unstable, though it connects.

ATM the Box is working out of box, but it would be nice to controll the heater, since its a bit to warm right now.
And having controll over this very nice device would be great.

Greets!

the.cakemaker created a new topic ' Guiding cam timeout' in the forum. 1 month ago

Hi there!

Back after a long bad-weather-period today.
Got a newdevice. The Pegasus-Astro Powerbox advance. Nice piece of tec.
Anyway... I hope it has NOT to do with the new device.
I had similar problems before too...



My new problem is, that the guidingcam, a lodestar X2, is timing out after some time (random) and so the worst case is sometimes KStars crashes or that the guiding is "skipping some steps" and after maybe 20sec the guiding keeps going on.
It "FELT" for me like a overfilled "pipe" so i thought maybe its a "traffic-thing"

And i was right, after changing to bin 2x2 the system runs with no problems. I mean for now.

Changed cables but the same problem. I also tried to connect the cam DIRECT to the Laptop but the problem still occurs. Only binning the cam seems to help.

Has someone an idea what else i could do? Binnig the cam for sure can NOT be the long-term solution.

I will get you some logs if you like tomorrow, bcause the system is in a very "sensitive" state and reacts with crashing very fast so i will keep my hands off.

Greetings
Niki

the.cakemaker created a new topic ' GPS Location setting' in the forum. 3 months ago

Maybe its a problem with my laptop, but setting up the location data is imho not made very user-friendly.
In fact, always when i want to set my location, i struggle how to do so.

Would it be able to implement a zoomable map somehow, where one could just klick its actual location to get it set in the system?

the.cakemaker replied to the topic 'MI CCD capture abort' in the forum. 3 months ago

Hello!

First i am glad that thanks to Jasem i got my old Profile back.
Dont know, but somehow i made a new one...
So tcm75 and me is the same person...

Now to the problem.

In a long Teamviewer Session Jasem found out that the problem is USB-related to the ARM device.

So it seems there is no real solution to this in the combination Rpi3 and Moravian G2.

I am back on my Laptop with Linux now, and there, this problem does not occur.

Jsut wanted to keep the interrested people informed.

the.cakemaker created a new topic ' Lots of crashes in new Version 3.3.9 Mac AND Linux' in the forum. 7 months ago

Hey there.

Updated to 3.3.9 on both machines.

The "Outside" Linux-Laptop, next to the mount i used to work all the time with has crashes out of nothing from time to time now.

Same when i use the imac from inside, controlling the outside laptop...

There are lots of connecting issues too now when starting the system. Then i am told that there are problems with usb connections or things like this...

I have logs here, from both machines, you find it under this link.

Maybe its of use.

Getting mad here again.

Installed astap because i wanted to try.
Found astap in /opt/astap/astap

I either get the message, that the file can not be found or that the permission is denied...

As a "not-so-much" Linux user, this again and again "not allowed to blablabla" thing is REALLY annoying...

So where the hell can i move the astap files to, so that kstars is allowed to use it?

the.cakemaker replied to the topic 'Camera error with Canon DSLR while shooting darks.' in the forum. 7 months ago

The problem is not such a big deal, since its not happening often, but sometimes. I don‘t know if it has to do with darks at all, i just said, it happened whike taking darks.

I have got problems uploading the logs most of the time because they are so big. In this case 76 mb.

The sd card was NOT full. Good idea, but checked that at first.

I think there must be a little problem with the driver of the cam, because i can reproduce a total system crash with disconnecting the dslr in the indi controls. Reconnecting will crash kstars.

I‘ll upload the logs to my dropbox in the future to can support you with it more easy.

Cheers, Niki
