That's exactly what is happening. I think it's significant that the first time that I try to connect to the camera and it errors out the light on the back of the camera comes on. I've noticed that as long as the light on the back of the camera is already on the next time you connect to the camera it will connect.

THANK YOU very much! I was about a day away from returning the camera and getting an ASI camera instead.

I think that's got it. I have to initiate the camera by trying to connect to it. It will error out, and then when I try to connect again it starts working properly. It's not 100% perfect but at least it's usable.

PROGRESS!!! :) :) :)

It still doesn't work from KStars directly. However, when I run indiserver from the command line and then connect to the server as a remote at localhost it works.

When I open another bash shell window that hasn't had the INDIPREFIX variable set it still doesn't work. So I suspect that is the key. There was a time when I knew which of my /etc files to add that to but I guess we'll have to cut a corner off my nerd card because I can't remember.

Yes, the firmware path matches.

That didn't do it either. I don't think it's loading the firmware. I noticed that as soon as PHD connects the red light on the back of the camera comes on, and stays on till the camera is unplugged. It never comes on at all when I try to operate the camera via INDI.

Still didn't work. Immediately when I started the INDI server it gave me this:

Evidentally, not. Are there any log files that would be helpful with figuring out what is going on. I'd be happy to send them to whomever is doing the development/debuging on this.

I've got files in both directories and they look like the same files, mostly. On a lark, I tried copying the firmware files from PHD to kstars. That didn't work.

Michael Quinn replied to the topic 'QHY5LIIC not connecting to INDI on OSX' in the forum. 7 months ago

Nope, still doesn't work. Tell me more about this getting the firmware thing is there a way to manually induce it to do that? It seems like INDI doesn't know how to turn the camera on but if something else turns it on then it will stay on until it gets turned off.

I'm using the latest version of kStars 2.9.3 under OSX10.12.4 and I'm having trouble connecting my QHY5LIIC camera to it. It works just fine on my Pi so I know that the camera and cable are okay. If I plug in the camera and fire up kStars EKOS gives an error "Unable to establish: QHY CCD".

Here's where it gets strange. If I open PHD2 first and connect to the camera from there, then disconnect then open kStars, everything works. I can connect to the camera just fine and take pictures etc. However, as soon as I unplug and replug the camera, I have to go back to PHD to get it working again. It kind of feels like it must be a driver issue but I'm at a loss for how to fix it. Can anyone help?

I haven't really had a chance to use it under the sky yet but from what I can tell testing it, its a little sluggish. I can't say if that's because of the USB2 or the Wifi. While I wouldn't want to manually focus at the refresh rate that it gives. My intention is to use a direct connection to my Macbook to focus and align the telescope and then monitor and control the imaging run from a nearby warmer location over wifi. I'm confident that it will be more than adequate to do that for me.

I did a 'apt-get dist-update' and suddenly it works. I have no idea why but i'll take it.

Some progress, I tried 'apt-get remove indi-asi' and then 'apt-get install indi-asi' and 'apt-get install indi-asi-dbg' now when I go to start INDI CCD in the device manager I get the following as an error message:

I am attempting to get my ZWO ASI1600MMPro camera to work with astroberry on a Raspberry Pi. When I plug the camera into my Macbook and launch Kstars and launch INDI it just works like a charm so I know the camera works. When I try to do the same on the pi it gives the error "Unable to establish: +ZWO CCD Please ensure the device is connected and powered on." I can run my mount through the usb hub in the camera so I know the pi is communicating down that usb cable but I haven't a clue to where to start diagnosing this problem. Can anyone help?
