Unfortunately no, the script is essentially trying to install the same package as both the generic package name and a specific kernel version, neither of which exist in the repo for the version of the OS I'm running. Thanks tho! -- gt

I'm running the latest rev of the Pi4 distro and would like to get a USB wireless dongle working, but I can't compile the driver for it because I can't install the kernel-headers. What I see is:

stellarmate@stellarmate:~/rtl8812au$ uname -a
Linux stellarmate 4.19.63-v7l+ #1249 SMP Thu Aug 1 16:31:35 BST 2019 armv7l armv7l armv7l GNU/Linux
stellarmate@stellarmate:~/rtl8812au$ sudo apt-get install raspberrypi-kernel-headers build-essential
Reading package lists... Done

E: Unable to locate package raspberrypi-kernel-headers

I did an apt-cache search linux-headers and don't see a package for 4.19.x so is there any way to resolve this? Thanks!

Regards,
Gord

Hi there:

I've been experimenting with imaging the planets with my Canon EOS1100 DSLR on an RPi 3B+ running Stellarmate 1.4.3 (I think, I'm running 1.4.4 on a Pi4 but I think I'm one release back on the Pi3)

Once I figured out I needed to change from Bulb mode to setting the exposure manually on the camera I was able to capture a small segment of the screen to SER file with the following issues:

1. If I tried to stream for more than about 45 secs the Canon driver crashed. Once to disconnected the drivers, stopped the INDI server and restarted it would go again. If I streamed for less than 45 secs I could stop and restart it so I just captured a bunch of frames 30 secs at a time
2. When I try to load a stream with Jupiter into AutoStakkart 3.0.14 64bit on Windows 10 the OS reports dimensions: 440 x 384 frames: 55 pixel depth: 8 bit/pixel but the image is clearly not decoding properly.



Does OGV format work any better? What stacking tool works well with OGV?

I can turn on logs tonight to get a better idea of the issue if you need further info on why the Canon driver is crashing.

AFAIK the error arises from the power supply - I was getting the messages but I have an Anker hub that has quick charge 1.5A port on it - the messages immediately disappeared when I plugged into the 1.5A plug on my RPi 3B+

Definitely registering again worked for me with a new install of StellarMateOS and the latest version of the app, including EKOS integration!

Sorry, I'm a python newbie and it doesn't seem real clear how to access these attributes - I only seem to get NONE when I try to access using:

telescope_status=device_telescope.getNumber("EQUATORIAL_COORD")

How do you access this data? The API document linked below implies that only RA and DEC are stored in this array...

Gord Tulloch created a new topic ' Status reporting' in the forum. 9 months ago

Hi there - this is probably a simple question but I'm not seeing the answer in the docs - I've written a client for the Raspberry Pi that shows the current object being pointed at, RA/DEC, localtime/UT, and IP for a telescope connected to the Pi . The Pi has a 320x480 touchscreen display. It will sit in the secondary cage of my new 16" project and eventually allow me to set up object tours and so on from the touchscreen, as well as obviously allowing control of the scope through remote INDI clients.

I'd like to display the current telescope status (ie PARKED/SLEWING/TRACKING) on the display screen but don't see an attribute that shows this status. Is there anything in the API I can use?
