Paul Porters created a new topic ' mySQMPROESP INDI Driver' in the forum. 1 week ago

Hi,

Robert Brown developed a nice weather device, mySQMPROESP.

sourceforge.net/projects/mysqmproesp32/files/



It would be great to get an INDI driver for it.

Anyone up for the task?
My knowledge is by far not suffiecient.

One thing more, you mentioned ARM architecture.. I don'tknow if it matters, but Kstars/Ekos is running on Kubuntu 18.04 on a regular PC.

I tried your suggestion, and reduced the speed from 4 to 3 (or did you mean something else?).

But unfortunately the exposure didn't finish, also tried all the speedsettings 0-4 and with a 1280x960 it just won't finish and download. At 640x480 all works correctly.
Same as earlier, when I disconnect the two other devices, it does finish & download the exposure.

Update: When I set the image size to 640x480 it all works as expected, all devices connected and images expose and download normally. Isn't that weird???

After the update to 3.3.8 I experienced following issue on a friends Ekos:

A preview (or sequence) exposure will not finish until I disconnect the two other devices (Mount & Focuser) from Ekos.

My first thought was a PC (USB bus problem), but I'm not sure that it is. Maybe someone can shed a light on it?

Here's the debug log:

I couldn't locate any INDI logs, so hopefully the debug log will tell us something.

Thanks in advance.

I have no trouble at all connecting my CEM40 to a PC when I follow these instructions: www.ioptron.com/v/ASCOM/iOptron_ASCOM_CEM40.pdf

I use the USB port on the mount, to make it work you need to install the FTDI driver on the PC: www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm

These instructions should also work for a CEM120 (if the USB port is used). I noticed the 'Install FTDI driver' part is not in the CEM120 instructions, so that may be the culprit.

Are the advanced settings for the Sesto Senso focus-motor somewhere available to be manipulated/set?

When used on my Crayford, it accelerates so fast, it's causing slippage.
Would be handy to be able to set these advanced parameters in my opinion, or as an alternative, the quick settings.

@knro

Update, I avoided the live stream, but had other crashes.

I found out it happened while loading images to the Skymap. So I un-installed some of the add-ons I had installed in the 'Data - Download New Data' menu and the crash never happened again.

My guess: It was one of those add-ons.

@knro
The Target selected was the Moon, and I run KStars in English, so I don't know why it wants to translate.

If it's handy, we can schedule a convenient time for you and you can generate the crash yourself in teamviewer.

And it happened again, but now I have more info, I was streaming live video from my ASI1294MC Pro with debayering on while a crash happened.
After the crash the same symptoms as before, crash a couple seconds after startup.

Hope this helps...

I deleted the kstars folder in home/.local/share and now it starts again, had configure again, but that's always better than no KStars ;-)

I copied the folder before deleting, so if anyone does find out what's wrong, maybe I can salvage some.
