Hi Hank, sorry for my very late replay. Concerning the stability of the Astroberry set, I am thinking that the system have to be given for any set running well. Personnaly I get a Rpi3+ with 16Go that perharps is not enough, and the first feeling thta I get is a lot of adjustement to be done not to get crash of theINDI server.
Actualy, the best that I get is a 60 pictures in one sequence done without crash. When I try to restart the sequence, after some shoot the Indi crash...I have aslo notice that using ASTAP before a sequence, is if the solver failed some times, crash of the Indi sever is also frequent..


Perharps on windows the Indi systeme is more robust.. I didn't not try and will be of course interreseted to have your feed back on this setup.

Regards.
JC

Hi just found apparently in the FITS/Configurer - KSTAR the solution... When I made trial, I discovered a veery strange behaviour of the FITS image, there were zooming every time a acquistion was occuring...Exepted when I set the bining in4X4... At the same times, I have seen that in the FITS/Configurer - KSTAR, one option called "Adaptive Sampling " is used when the ressource of the system is reducing. So I uncheck this option and... no more crash over 50 acquisition ( 10R/10B/10G/10L)... Hoping this is the solution up to the next bug...

Best regards.

So...

I tried with "sudo apt update" and "sudo apt upgrade" but when restarting, the desktop of my Rasbian ( buster ) is not available... I get a "panic massage " and the system is restarting. I suppose that my Rasbain has been updated since 9 month ... So is ther any way to update only Astroberry and not all the system ?

Best regards.
