hello,
I don't have usb3

but I checked with any PCs under Ubuntu/Windows7/ Windows10 (maybe USB3)
No problem anymore, but it's known that a low rate on USB make the Amp Glow lighter, I've shot a lot in any weeks, the amp-glow appeared with the stretched histogram FITS preview of Kstars but as I push the levels so far I can: no amp-glow on final PICS.
I use only one bank of Darks (Gain 300, T° -15°C), and the amp-glow seems really stable as it appeared never with DOF treatement.

As I've understood, an Astrams has sent 3 times his camera, the fourth and last one has a faint Amp-glow...

How how sorry, my bad :(
seems ok :)
the fits viewer in Kstars show too much details, the levels are really boosted
the amp glow is visible but can easily corrected with dark/flat

Hello,
I use a PI3B+ with Ubuntu Mate 16.04LTS, INDI/Kstars/Ekos
IndiLib updated 1.7.4

I have the big "amp Glow" with the ASI183MMPro, Gain 200, Exp: 180s, T° 10°C


Checked the forums/topics everywhere, it' seems normal but ZWO and QHY (same sensors) have corrected the drivers to compensate (Dark calibration ? I'm not sure)
Tested under Windows 7, Last ZWO Driver, Sharpcap: no amp glow with: ASI183MMPro, Gain 200, Exp: 180s, T° 10°C
very high contrasted picture (windows picture manager)



has someone an issue to this ?
I've to test furthers solutions, but now I've to go at work :(

Thanks all :)

You're right, I Have this one:
71Bo6D0LssL._SX355_.jpg

Tested it with last Upgrade, 3 hours outside, "real condition", 5000ms polling, speed 50, step 100, all ok
rel position always > 50000, but that's not a pb

If the DC2 use the HID layer over the USB Protocol.... pfouuu :( designed for Windows...
sorry, that's far away of my knowledges

Hello,

i've no solutions for the driver, but yet (after one day over it) it works ...

Hitecastro DC Focus, Ubuntu Mate 16.04LTS, PI3B+, Kstars/ekos

I've removed definitively the powered USB HUB, and after many many tries it works with this parameters:
Polling 5000ms (yeah, 5 seconds)
Speed 50 or 100 (<50 no function)
Max travel 10000

Steps: between 4000 and 10000 it runs but no update for the position (tiks)
between 20 and 4000 it runs perfectly, only wait 12s (12 seconds) to launch another command

Position: for a move of 2000 steps, the position move of 4000
many tries: always x2

no safe position (limits visible in .cpp)
override below 0, i've reached -2200
I didn't test the override > 10000 (Max travel ?)

At startup the tiks (position) is always 49800 (position not saved)
all others parameters are correctly saved

hmmm...
under windows why not, but I don't want this system anymore.

Nop, now I do the changes on Arduino between my focuser and the solution of Cees Lensink, to use the moonlite driver with my second Setup (Mak100/1400 ASI120)
then,
find a solution for the HitecAstrofocus controler.... or replace it with an Arduino :(

Hello,

I've done an arduino focuser with 3 speed, 1 Step, 1/8 Step, 1/32 Step
Manually controled or in remote with terminal and a Script focus.sh
To move inward 20 Steps: I send (Sérial via USB, ASCI readable) focus.sh 1020
outward 150 Steps: focus.sh 2150

really easy

I want to do a driver for ekos/kstars
How to do it ? Software, in C or c++, but I don't know the structure, and have no idea how to program it :(
It is possible ?
I've more worked with c#/Visual Studio, or scripting bash, lua etc

Ok, perfect !!!
sorry for this silly post, you're right with the update, no seen any error but it's running correctly now !!

"sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get -y dist-upgrade"
was the solution

Thanks a lot !!

Hello everybody,

since Januar I use a PI3B/Ubuntu 16.04LTS for my Setup
it runs very good, :woohoo: Kstars is realy amazing,

but now (after the last Upgrade ?) I can't use the Canon 1200D, Ekos crashed to attempt connection with the 1200D
I've tried with terminal:
> indiserver indi_canon_ccd
the answer is a bit strange, with guiding ?

what is that doing with Canon DSLR ??
"undefined symbol: _ZN4INDI3CCD10GuideNorthEf"

I've upgraded, Gphoto too (2.6)
but no issue...

Has anyone an idea ?
