Hi,

I am trying to install INDI Servoblaster Cap following the instructions on github.com/magnue/indi_servoblaster_cap/blob/master/README.md running Astroberry Server 2.0 on a Raspberry Pi 3. I get the following error message:

astroberry@astroberry-fa:~/Projects/indi_servoblaster_cap/build $ cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr . ..
CMake Error at cmake_modules/FindINDIDriver.cmake:43 (message):
INDI-DRIVERS not found!
Call Stack (most recent call first):
CMakeLists.txt:17 (FIND_PACKAGE)


-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!
See also "/home/astroberry/Projects/indi_servoblaster_cap/build/CMakeFiles/CMakeOutput.log".

Attached is the CMakeOutput.log file.

Is it just a missing environment variable INDI-DRIVERS? I would be grateful for any help.

Cheers
Simon

Hi there,

I was wondering if there was any progress on the topic. I figured out that the filter wheel home position is properly found, when the config file was purged prior to starting INDI. However, I have to enter the correct filter names each time I start INDI.

Cheers,
Simon

I experienced the following issue with an Atik GP. The first two frames taken with the GP are not showing any signal. After that the camera is working fine. Anyone any clues what‘s wrong? Grateful for any help.

I don‘t think the spinning of the filter wheel is a RPi 4 specific problem. In my case it happened when connecting directly to my notebook running Ekos under Ubuntu 18.04.

As said before, this problem does not occur all the time. Disconnecting and reconnecting the camera sometimes solves the problem. Delecting the config file also worked once. Any idea on how to avoid the spinning?

Thanks
Simon

Hi, I am having the same issue. It seems to appear only sporadically. For instance, the wheel did not spin after I purged the config file. Maybe that was just a coincidence...

Thanks Jasem for the feedback. I will keep my eyes open for INDI Atik GP support.

I checked out the nightly build which stopped the crashing of KStars. However, taking images with the Atik One results in an „IDLE“ situation. Preview is working fine though.

I guess I stick with the INDIGO Atik drivers and the INDI EQMod driver. That seems to solve all my problems for now. Thanks Peter for the help.

Thanks to Peter and AstroNerd for the help. I managed to start Ekos using the INDIGO drivers for the Atik One CCD and Atik GP. Both cameras work and the filter wheel is behaving correctly. However, I am still running into problems:

1) The guiding section of Ekos doesn't show up. Is the GP not recognised as a guiding camera (using indigo_ccd_iidc driver)? Do I need another driver?
2) The Align section (I used the INDIGO Telescope Simulator for now) won't work. I would like to use the EqMod telescope driver with a synscan mount but there doesn't seem to be (a stable) one in INDIGO. Can you run INDI EqMod and INDIGO CCD drivers side by side? If so, how?


Jasem, I tested the INDI Atik driver in the nightly build. The 2nd filter wheel position is not skipped anymore. However, now KStars crashes when I try to change the filter wheel position from position 5. The filter names still cannot be changed. I get [ERROR] Error updating names of filters. after hitting Set in the INDI Control Panel.

Thanks for the effort. I will check the nightly build tomorrow and see how it works. I also tried using the indigo server. All connected devices (CCD, built in FW and Guider) show up in the Web Interface. But how do I get Ekos to use the indigo instead of the INDI drivers?

I‘m looking forward to hear what Atik‘s official reply is.

Hello Jasem,

thanks for the quick reply. First I wasn't using any driver for the filter wheel, since it is included in the Atik One. However, when I select "Atik EFW" as filter wheel I get a message from Indi Server saying "No Atik filter wheels detected. Power on?". Any idea what I am doing wrong? Also any clue why the Atik GP guider camera doesn't even show up in the INDI Control Panel?

Hi,

I'm a physics teacher and I'm setting up an observatory at my school. We have an Atik One 6.0 CCD camera with an Atik GP guider camera. I would like to run all of it with Ekos under Ubuntu 18.04. I am using KStars 3.00 and the new ATIK drivers (Version 2.1).

I have run into the following problems trying to run the camera and the guider:

1) Atik One 6.0 connects but the following problems occur:
- I can't set the filter names permanently
- changing from filter position 1 to 2 does not move the filter wheel / a subsequent change from filter position 2 to 3 (in Ekos) moves the filter number 2 in front of the sensor and so on ... I can never reach filter position 5
2) Atik GP guider camera doesn't even show up in the INDI Control Panel
3) I can choose between "Atik" and "ATIK CCD" in the Profile Editor and don't know the difference (if there is any)

Using the cloudmaker Atik driver changes the filter problem but the guider shows up in the INDI control panel but never connects.

I'm grateful for any help on this since I would like to start observing with my students soon and have to switch to Artemis Software under Windows, if I don't get this to run under Ekos. And who would want that? ;)

Cheers,
Simon
