Hello,

No browser was used which generated this message. This occurred during a terminal session with APT-GET. The error happened when the repository for AstroBerry was searched for updates. I updated later and everything was working.

Yesterday was a strange network, cell phone, TV signal, WIFI, and sky day. Ash from out west reached our area. The morning sun is orange. Stars of magnitude > 0 are visible. Apps are ignorant of bad events. Clear is not clear when particles block the sky.

Large fires from multiple areas impact more than just the impact zone. Masks of N95 are required for ash protection.

Hurricanes are in the south. Sally is water washing away. Many negative opportunities to loose access to resources abound right now.

Hello,

It seems that certificate has expired. This is coming from www.astroberry.io . Could it be the CA is down? The CA verifies trust.

Certificate verification failed: The certificate is NOT trusted. The certificate chain uses not yet valid certificate. Could not handshake: Error in the certificate verification. [IP: 87.98.235.184 443]

Hello,

When I first rolled over from my RPI3B+ to an RPI4B, I was eggar to use the two new USB3 ports with my two USB3 hubs. Well, my GPS wouldn’t work. My QHYCCD and ZWO cameras disappeared. I thought I had installed AstroBerry 2.0.3 wrong.

I went back to USB2 and everything came back. Then I read the RF interference posts. I am waiting for a clear night to test moving to 5G.

After the last update and the PI account hack, I lost access to the WIFI of AstroBerry. So, now I bring a wireless router to connect to AstroBerry.

Hello,

In another thread, using WIFI 2.4G and USB 3.0 produces unstable USB3 performance. Change your wireless to 5G and retest your configuration. Any hardware driver that is unstable will crash any application using it.

Hello,

A while back, I endured many failed expectations about USB3 and USB3 hubs. My solution was to avoid USB3 ports. Thank you for the explanation of the problem. The reason makes sense.

After a recent update and the rush to kill the account pi, I found no WIFI my last outing. I had a spare work Netgear Router and supplied the wireless for the session.

In reestablishing WIFI, I replaced Automatic with A 5G. I will test again the USB3.0 hubs in the USB3 ports.

Hello,

My attempts to get my Vixen SP to be INDI/EKOS/KSTARS ready have hit a snag. After multiple attempts, I think I have come to the end of the journey. The gears are not helping INDI.

My RA is 36:12 = 3:1. My DEC is 30:10 = 3.1. However, 3:1 <> 3.1 in this scenario. The RA belt is 5mm and HTD. The DEC is 3mm and HTD. DEC is 67% faster that RA. As such, INDI thinks it’s someplace but it’s not. Targets KSTARS says I am at are empty space is the reticle. The moon is way above where the OTA is pointing.

I am at this juncture by choice. The 36:12 is much bigger than the 30:10 physically. 3:1 is equal to 3.1 mathematically. Plenty examples of different RA and DEC on vendor mounts. What should be done in EQMOD when DEC and RA arrive in two different speeds?

Hello,

Thank you for reminding me about idiosyncrasies about PA. When I level and align my tripod, I use a combo compass with a bubble level. This compass is claimed to be a “military” grade compass.

I will mark my tripod legs next outing to provide consistent PA. I have to account family looking with me.

The green arrow is a measure of how much AZ and ALT the OTA is from the Celestial Pole. I use real time to see where Polaris is. The length of the arrow and its vector says how much up, down, left, and right the OTA must go. If very long the placement is bad.

If bad PA setup, level is really good to keep. Use three star alignment. The adjustment screws of the mount are limited. ALT is limited also.

Hello,

Given the reluctant ABS users who do want to flatten and start over, this would be disastrous if caught unawares. Loosing access to all the configs, fixed, updates, rules, videos, and FITS files would be disastrous.

I think I used pi once under ABS. No loss for right now.

Hello,

Fantastic news! Post some pictures.

Hello,

Fantastic. Click on Start. On the Lefthand of the session is tab. Click on on it. This is INDI Web.

To keep INDIWEBMANAGER running is to create a profile. That is it. The applets in this tab provide graphical presentations of your equipment. I created several to test equipment. My production mirrors EKOS.

When creating a profile, click on the box below to always use the profile, default and auto run. Everything is working.

When is KSTARS in the OS, KSTARS will complain about another running instance. This instance is INDIWEBMANAGER. You can close it but it’s service file has a restart option. It is designed to restart after a crash. Enjoy.

Hello,

AstroBerry.io has an image already to build. This includes ind-web. This is the appeal of AstroBerry Server 2.0.2.

The other method, via INDI, builds for Ubuntu Mate. I keep my RPI3B+ Ubuntu Mate. It doesn’t have InDI-web.

I would look at the .service files for the components of InDI-web. Check to see if services are not lining up. The systemctl output looks like the service is running.

AstroPI3 includes some tools to get indiwebmanager pieces monitored. I would not recommend it for AstroBerry Server 2.0.2. ABS 2..0.2 is optimized to be a remote device.

Here is how I get to the device. I just use the IP. Don’t add the port.

Hello,

If you have your device connected via a lan cable, you can go to the IP of the device. This will show it INDI-WEB is working.
