I’ve been using 3.4.2 since the DMG was uploaded taking lights, flat, darks and bias without any problem. Canon EOS 40D, stored as FITS files.

I've tried to connect to an "astronomical" webcam, the Svbony 105 using the INDI webcam driver and I've got a crashing indiserver. I'm running KStars 3.4.1 on MacOS 10.15.4 and I was able to connect with the camera using QuickTime Player, so the camera is available on the system

I've discovered that on 3.4.2 the INDI Webcam driver is not included (it was present on 3.4.1)

rbarberac replied to the topic 'Re:Re:Re:DSLR: any advantage of using FITS format instead of RAW?' in the forum. 1 month ago

Sorry, but conversion doesn’t means always data loss. In fact, when you shot on RAW but store it as FITS, no data is lost. Each pixel read is store as it is without debayering.

In fact when you store it as FITS you have a lot of advantages in post processing. For example, applying darks, bias or flats could be done directly before debayering (at the CFA matrix), so you can easily remove hot pixels in the channel where it appear, without touching nearby pixels, so without introducing color contamination (as it happens when you apply calibration after debayering)

Yes, I use KStars on macOS and connect via WiFi with OnStep running on a Mega2560.

I’m apologize by my mistake: James Lancaster is who have made some fixes about this driver recently, not you.

I’ll talk with him. Thank you for generate those builds, so we can test it.

Regards.

Hi Robert,

I’ve tried this beta, mainly to try the fix in OnStep driver’s slew speed selection.

I’m using the current master branch for OnStep (4.x). Changing the slew speed works... more or less. I mean, now the mount respond ma to the speed changes and I don’t receive any error. But when I press one of the direction buttons the mount star to move on this direction and when I leave the button, the mount keeps the same movement! Same happens If I start the polar alignment process, the first 30° rotation never ends.

If you need any log files or another test, please ask for it here or in OnStep forum.

Thank you for your work on this driver (by the way, the initial setup for the driver is very fast now, almost instantaneous)

I've entered this thread to report a problem with the Slew rate... and I see that is fixed right now (but not available yet for macOS users) :). Any way, very happy to see that the driver is not dead :)

I've another question. I'm still building my OnStep system (soldering, waiting for some components to arrive, etc). Mean while I've built a prototype with a Mega board and one small 28BYJ-48 motor to see movement. Gotos speeds are reasonable, change slew rata didn't work, and I don't know if this is related, changing the speed at witch the polar assistant rotates the mount neither work. If you go to the polar assistant and star it, the 30deg slew is performed at very low speed, aside of the one that you have chosen in the combo.

Hi Jon,

It seems that you are the only one trying to use SV105 with INDI. Did you succeed? If the answer is yes, please could you share your findings? Driver capabilities, max exposure (for guiding propose), problema found etc. etc.

Yes, I understand that some mounts needs this behavior implemented as it is. As I’ve explained in other thread, my post was not about removing this option, but about putting it on a more meaningful place: the Guide module.
