well then I manage to connect, I reinstall the code on the card arduino uno
on the other hand it does not drive my motor which is connected to 8,9,10,11 .

do you have an idea of the problem?

OK so you have a scanner port in kstars that gives... like me, or did I misunderstand?

OK, but do I have to configure the code to put the one my pc assigns?

OK and thanks for looking at my problem.

Porchet replied to the topic 'Need help for rotator project' in the forum. 6 days ago

it seems to me that I can't choose because it's the default port of an Arduino Uno card.

We have to indicate the port in the code you gave me, because I searched and I saw nothing.

so I tried, I put the right port in kstars(/dev/ttyACM0), but it didn't work, and I got this message.

2020-11-18T17:41:57: [INFO] Error retrieving data from NightCrawler, please ensure NightCrawler controller is powered and the port is correct.
2020-11-18T17:41:57: [INFO] Focuser Type 3.5 NC

or then there is something that I do wrong, should I configure something in the code according to the port?
and do you have a schematic of your setup

thank you for your help, it's nice to take time for me !

Okay, I'll see when I get home.
But it seems to me that I tried and that kstars didn't manage to make the connection with the arduino card.

By the way, can I just connect the arduino without the engine driver to see if it's ok?

Hi
So I was able to install the hard code on my card, but I wanted to see, without plugging in a motor, how kstars connects to the card.
But kstars can't connect, you have to put what, because **Moonlite** doesn't work and
**Moonlite Rotor INDI driver** I couldn't find it.

See you
Christophe

hello
thank you very much!!
I will try to see how it works, and if I can adapt it to my motor for my test that the 28BYJ-48 stepper motor.

But I'll probably need help to install the driver correctly.
Because unfortunately I don't have a lot of experience with linux yet.

Best Regards
Christophe

Ok I had understood that this existed by using a star to guide the rotation.

But then, for my project, is there a code with a driver that I can use or adapt to an arduino code?
Because unfortunately my knowledge in programming is not sufficient or even non-existent for such a project.

Hello
I am making a Rotator to put on my Newton which is in my obeservatoir.
I'm just trying to be able to turn the camera to take a picture in the right position and not to correct the rotation of the earth.

I have no problem with the manufacturing part, but I do have a problem with the computer part!

Do you know if there is already something under indi for an arduino that kstars can order?

Thank you for your help

Best Regards

Weather Radio > Calibration > Sky Temp calibr. > clear sky (°C)


That's in Kstars, but I want to change the tolerance in the Weather Radio web page.

So is it possible to do it, and if so, how do we do it?
