Mark Copper replied to the topic 'indi-asi compile failure' in the forum. 3 months ago

Today I performed a re-install and indilib software compiled with only the hitch of needing to insert the "#include<iterator>" line in indiccd.cpp.

I don't know what the problem was, so no helpful post-audit, sorry for the noise.

I haven't looked at the code but there seems to be some current activity regarding "addFITSKeywords" function, so I'm posting this make failure for indi-asi.

Would there be a reason not to have a conditional include?

Line 68 refers to std::ostream_iterator which is defined in header '<iterator>' but there is no line #include <iterator>

so indi-core does not make for me. Typo? or am I missing something, too?

Thanks for responses.

It may be worth noting that the Mac Studio uses the newer M1 Max or the M1 Ultra. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mac_Studio

Or maybe not. Here is the crash report summary:

Kstars crashes at launch on my MacBook Air (M1, 2020). This is true for all 3 binaries available through indilib.org

I must be doing something fundamentally wrong.

In the specs for the ASI183MM camera, different frames per second rates are given for both 10 bit ADC and 12 bit ADC. But it seems there is not a corresponding switch in Ekos, not under the streaming tab nor under the control tab.

What is more, using Python Imageio Pyav plugin, it appears that the data contained in the .ser file when streaming is saved contains only 8 bit data. Well, sort of. Each pixel is assigned 3 unsigned 8 bit integers, but since the ASI183MM is monochrome, those integers are all the same.

Is there a way to save 10 or 12 bit data in Ekos?

Is this a FAQ? Are there any relevant docs?

Thanks.

Mark Copper created a new topic ' Fast exposure support?' in the forum. 7 months ago

The INDI Library 1.9.3 release lists as its first highlight
"Fast Exposure support. Capture next frame in camera immediately to avoid any delays."

Where can I find out more about this? I'm not sure what it means exactly or what cameras it might apply to.

Thanks.

Thanks for responding.

A quick write speed test (dd if=/dev/zero of=tempfile bs=1M count=1024) results in 2.6 GB/s.

This test is performed on the computer to which the camera is attached; that is, "local" in the Ekos tab.

Hello all,

I realize there are a myriad different setups out there, but does anyone have a sense how many frames per second can be achieved under the Ekos CCD tab?

For example, I have a series of 2000 x 2000 px photos taken at .02" exposure with an ASI183MM written locally to a solid state drive. The capture rate was just under 100 per minute or 1.7 per second, bandwidth set at 76.

An impossible question to be sure, but I'm wondering what other people might be experiencing.

Thanks.
