I appreciate that, but my hardware is unchanged, and for the last year, during many nights, probably thousands of downloads, i had 7.5sec /32MB... I suspected VNC, does this not add another trip to the data?

Thank you

First: Hats off to Kaczorek, ASTROBERRY is awesome and has served me very well over the last 24 month. Thanks Kacz!

recently updated from v1.1.0 to v2.0.2.

after the usual upgrade-hiccups I was able to connect, but downloads for my FITS - which I store on my desktop - have slowed down quite a bit: was 7ish seconds, now highly variable between 18 and 34sec

not too big a deal, but if there is an easy fix I would like to learn about it...

Thanks!

Michael created a new topic ' Linear focus module..' in the forum. 2 months ago

KStars on my Mac, Astroberry talking to home brew Myfocuserpro2, using the linear algorithm; works mostly GREAT

Occasionally focus fails and aborts the session, typically wildly out of focus. If running from the scheduler the session immediately restarts, and attempts focus again but now from an already bad starting point. In linear focus mode the starting point is initially moved out even more, making recovery virtually impossible.

For example:last night initial focus was around 9600, KStars finally crashed with a focused position of 12600, a typical scenario (I believe the focus module might be crashing KStars??)

If the focuser would return after a failed routine to a “last known good” position, this might be avoided...

Thanks

Than gents, would you think this Is a RBP4 specific issue or do other USB3-SBC have the same potential problem?

Appreciate it!

Whenever data acquisition is halted, eg autofocus failure, plate solve failure after flip... EKOS could send a text to get me to “save the night”

But not after midnight, please!

I would agree, but I see several strange issues:

screen resolution suddenly very low,
PHD2 guiding became really, really bad, still works though (related to screen resolution issue???)
Filter change creates hangups almost nightly. NO: nightly
post flip alignment hangs on occasion
and my iMac has to think a lot more for some reason, as documented by the cooling fan coming on, which it didn't need before
and there is more....

about to revert to my old setup...

Any behavioral changes in your setup?

Thanks

Michael replied to the topic 'myFocuserPro or myFocuserPro2 and INDI' in the forum. 9 months ago

But it crashes and crashes and crashes.... hangs on filter change mostly, and I understand that is a common problem, so probably not related to Myfocuserpro2, or my installation skills....

Are you aware of a solution, is there somewhere a Nightly builds maybe? Cant seem to locate that

Thanks!
