I already sent him an email where I noticed the ln - s process.
He replied me good news.
But nothing else because it's, for him, an old driver.

Yes I tried binning too. But this is a software binning and I 'm not sure it is done in the camera before it send images via USB.

Yop...sadly, it happens to me.... Grrrr

Thanks! One more step, make sure it's on 8 bit mode.


Ok, I confirm :
No hub and nothing else. I'm testing the camera on RPi3B+ alone by day (right now).
Bandwidth is on 40, Depth on 8bit.

And it doesn't work.

I allready flash the firmware but how can I be sure that it is the good one ?
I tried many parameters : restrict to 640x480, in strealming AND picture controls. I move bandwidht too but go back to 40 and even tried 16bit mode ;-)

Here is cpature of my ekos sreen with the puzzle...I have an average of 1/4 4 images like this.

Hi,
Thanks for reply, there're still hope so.

Can you write what you compile from source? Just indi, or ekos, and what else?

Second, as I wrote the T7 works only as single frame capture here. When I used it for guiding I lost the star because the the images are wrong. They are somehow wrong reassemble, something like a puzzle appear, and the guiding star move a lot, from a square to another.

Hi,

Did someone manage to have a functional system with ASI120M (usb2 version) and Linux, preferably on a micro computer like raspberry or odroid?
I own a datyson t7 (clone of ASI120MM) on a RPi3 B+ and can capture single frame but no video nor guiding, what I bought cam for.

Regards,

Hi,

Uderstod...It's my fault. I tried to connect CFW with another instance of driver, but it has to be connect directly with the camera driver.
So in the indi configuration I have not to connect a filter wheel in the aux.

AND IT WORKS FINE !!!

Thanks a lot for your time.

@jasem

My RPi3 doesn't find the filter wheel.
Does the new stable driver (indi 1.7.7) can handle cfw when plugged in the camera?
If so I have to make some other attempts this evening.
Yesterday I've got an error message : the cfw wasn't found.
