Hi.

I am trying to associate .FITS files with the Kstars FITS Viewer on a Widows system. Is there a FITS viewer exe file somwhere?

Finally some clear skies again. Played around with it some more, no way I can get it to work. But cycling the images in the focus module does works like it should.

I was able to fix it by going to the Indi control panel, got to the DSLR tab (I use an EOS450D).
Then find the capturesettings tab and switch the focusmode to MANUAL.
I am not sure if there were other (autofocus related) settings I changed but it works now. Maybe you can try playing around with those.

Good luck!


Thanks for the suggestion. I will try that next time we have clear skies.

Ok... I guess there is no way to bypass the polar star resolving process and 'just' test the image cycle issue indoors is it?

Just checked, I use Kstars 3.0.0, Build: 2018-12-21T09:30:46Z. I am not sure where to find the version information for EKOS (or is that given by the Kstars version?).

When I hit the stop button I lost connection with the Canon camera and had to cycle power to it and reconnect.

It is cloudy tonight, but the next time possible I will test again and record logs as per instructions in knro's signature

Yes, I should, but I don't. Because I am waiting on an adapter for it. But that is besides the point, the procedure should also work with a DSLR.

I have the exact same problem as you with a Canon 550D.

Hi.

Tried my new Stellarmate OS for the first time under clear skies yesterday. When I was (trying to) perform a polar adjustment using EKOS it took and resolved 3 images as expected and produced the image with a pink correction vector where you are supposed to adjust a star into the bulls-eye using the knobs on the mount. However my camera (a Canon 550D mounted on a SW200P on a HEQ5PRO) then does not loop images as it should, so I cannot see the effect of adjusting mount knobs. The camera works as expected under the image section of EKOS.

Any Ideas?
