you are using v1.5 Firmware in combination with v1.4 INDI driver, right? I can check it tomorrow, currently I do not have access to my Arduinos.
Currently, yes. I keep it up to date more or less every 1-2 days. But it would be better if you use
If you need assistance for git, just send me a PN.
Hm, strange. Please be so kind and post the logs.
Folks, could you please do me the favour and test the behavior of the scheduler? My impression is that most of the behaviour you describe is already present in the Scheduler.
The only thing that you need to do is using the Scheduler for your nighttime capture session and define scheduler jobs that
When using the Scheduler, a Weather ALERT leads to the sequence park mount --> park dome (if both are selected). Weather WARNING is ignored by the Scheduler.
How does Kstars do to trigger the action of putting the mount on Park and putting the dome on Park?
Would it be possible to simulate the same action with a weather alert.
Or the Dome driver must set the mount to Park by default before closing the roof.
Nope, the Observatory does not take care of the mount currently. I already have the UI controls in place, but the functionality is not present yet.
If I remember well, the two of us discussed it whether parking of the telescope make sense to add this to the Observatory. The decision was that we should leave it to the Scheduler. But I might be wrong...
I did the tests for the two scenarios with simulators for dome and telescope. From what I see is that the only option that makes trouble is the scope option "dome parks". It works in principle, but as already mentioned in this thread, the dome does not wait with parking until the scope is parked and is parking in parallel. That is a risky behaviour, I fully agree.
But all the other combinations seem to work as designed, but I fully agree, not all combinations make sense.
We could add two actions to the Observatory:
you're standing on a branch. If you want to have the other updates, checkout the master branch and pull the latest stuff:
git checkout master git pull
besides all the stuff about how to configure the roof reactions - as far as I understand the MeteoStation driver, it does not set the INDI property "WEATHER_STATUS", which is the property indicating whether the weather is OK, WARNING or ALERT.
If you want to use an Arduino based weather station, you might consider switching to Weather Radio - as part of the same indi-duino package. It is documented here: github.com/sterne-jaeger/indi-3rdparty/b...adme-WeatherRadio.md
Aaaah, good to hear that it is working fine.
Regarding parking: I'm not the expert, I have only a wooden pole and no dome.
I've written the Observatory tab of EKOS, therefore I know this part quite well. In the Observatory tab, you can configure how the observatory should react upon warnings and alerts including thresholds. If you for example check the "Alerts" checkbox, you can select whether the dome should park after x seconds when the weather status turns to "ALERT".
For parking the scope, you can configure the dome device that the scope should snoop (i.e. listen). There you need to type our rolloff roof device name and select, how the scope should react upon the dome parking/unparking.
But better try it out with the simulators.
And be careful, better try twice
Any problems here? Log looks good.
There is a fix available in Commit 446481d5fb485ec6437c43bb6bcc1c5b76adedfd
Please pull the latest version from git, it should work now.
yes, it's somehow strange. It looks like there is a problem with the caching that does not work properly on some Arduinos. I've reworked it today.
The latest version is available from my fork of INDI 3rdparty: https://github.com/sterne-jaeger/indi-3rdparty/tree/weatherradio-v_1.5
For simplicity, I attach the latest version here.
Hope this is working now. Otherwise I have to wait for my Nano to arrive...
