Thanks Radek. The problem was that i had "Default" as the selected output rather than "File".

By the way, I seemed to have fixed the astroberry motor hat driver crashing issue by reinstalling the driver.

Hi,

I'm having a problem with the astroberry motor hat focuser driver (it's crashing on startup - perhaps caused by the latest INDI library update?) and I'd like to check the logs. When I click on "Open Logs Directory" in EKOS, nothing happens. Any thoughts on what the cause of this issue might be?

Raspberry PI 3 B+, Ubuntu MATE 16.04

Hi all,

I wonder if anyone could point me in the direction of instructions for setting up my Pi as an access point for use in the field? There are lots of instructions out there but I'd like to take advantage of the group's experience and use a method with which someone has had success.

I'd like to enable wireless connection sharing as well, if possible, but this is optional.

Thanks,

Steve

Thanks for the update, Jasem. And apologies. My post above reads as entitled. I know this is a labour of love for you guys.

And yes. SBIGs support is not good. Their Mac support and support for Raspberry Pi SkyX is poor as well. An unfortunate lost opportunity and poor service for their customers.

Appreciate all the work you do.

I posted regarding this issue several months ago. No responses, unfortunately.

indilib.org/forum/ccds-dslrs/3463-sbig-s...xposure-timeout.html

I had to abandon use of my ST-i with my Raspberry Pi 3B+ setup.

Hopefully you'll have better luck than me getting someone to look into this..

Hi,

I've just upgraded my ST-8300M from a 5-position SBIG FW5-8300 filter wheel to an 8-position SBIG FW8-8300 filter wheel. In the INDI Control Panel SBIG CCD Tab Filter Wheel sub-Tab there are only 5 filter name fields available although I can select all 8 filters using the "Filter Slot" slider.

Any thoughts as to how to rectify this issue?

Steve created a new topic ' SBIG ST-i Exposure Timeout' in the forum. 11 months ago

Hi,

I used my Raspberry Pi 3B+ Indi server in anger under the stars for the first time this evening. Things went ok except that my SBIG ST-i intermittently suffered timeout errors making guiding impossible. I was running a kstars (version 2.9.4) client on my MacBook Pro running High Sierra. My RPi has Ubuntu Mate installed and the I'm using IndiLib version 1.7.0 on the RPi. I'm connecting an SBIG ST-8300M (which seems to be working fine), an Astro-Physics Mach1, an AdaFruit MotorHat focuser, and the ST-i. I'm connecting the Mac and the RPi to the same wifi network and they're communicating wirelessly.

The ST-i sometimes captures exposures successfully but often does not resulting in a Exposure Timeout. Restarting Exposure message in the console.

I've tried the camera connected directly to the RPi and to the RPi through a powered USB hub and the behaviour is the same. Additionally, PHD2 installed on the RPi shows similar timeout behaviour.

Please see the attached log although I'm

Any help appreciated.

Victory! Thanks again. Not smart enough, yet, to understand why it worked but it did :)
