Hi,

I'm no expert having only recently set up my RPI4 with a lot of help from here and SGL.

I had a similar issue when I was setting up and was unable to connect to the hotspot from my Win10 Laptop.

It was then explained to me that their is a hierarchy with regards to the internet ( Ethernet - Wireless - Hotspot ).

So once set up if a wireless network is detected then this will be used before a hotspot.

From your description it would appear that you've set up the wireless connection and your laptop etc is picking this up which is why you cannot connect to the hotspot.

I'm sure this is right, but I could ge wrong as it's all new to me

Should note that the ASI1600MM Pro has three USB ports, two USB2.0 ports (which are usually used for connecting a Filter Wheel, Guide Camera etc...), and a high speed USB3.0 port to connect the camera to the Pi (either directly or via a Powered hub).

The two USB2.0 ports are effectively a USB hub, and I would hazard a guess that the 04b4:6572 device is that USB2.0 hub.

It's not clear why you could not see the USB3.0 device when connecting through the hub, but I would put it down to power and/or initialisation issues. At least you've found a way to get everything working now.


I'm not very good at working with a PI4 as it is all new to me and you may be correct that the Pi4 was initially picking up the USB 2.0 hub on the camera.

The bit I don't understand but I'm glad it works is the fact that prior to plugging my camera directly into the USB 3.0 port on the PI4 it would not work via the powered hub, it appears the Pi4 could not recognise it however after connecting the camera directly to the Pi4 via the USB 3.0 port and getting it recognised and working properly I can now plug it into my hub and it works.

Having taken advice the first thing I did was to remove all the USB cables from my Startech 7 Port powered USB 3.0 hub. I then ran 'lsub' with just the powered hub connected to the USB3.0 port on my my PI4 and I got the below :-



I then connected My Zwo ASI 1600MM to the powered hub and again ran 'Lsusb' and got the below:-



So when the camera was attached my RPI appeared to be picking up the device as ( Bus 001 Device 003: ID 04b4:6572 Cypress SemiConductor Corp.

I was however aware from research on the web and in particular this thread on the indi forum:- indilib.org/forum/ccds-dslrs/4627-indi-s...ol-indi-asi-ccd.html that the correct vendor ID should be 03c3:1601 and not 04b4:6572. So the camera was not connected.

I then took further advice from 'Terry' on SGL who advised me to connect my camera directly to the USB3.0 port on the PI4 and run 'lsub' to see if the camera is correctly identified. I did this and got the below:-



It can be seen that the first line showed the correct vendor ID for the Zwo ASI 1600MM camera (03c3:1601)

Hi,

This morning I turned everything on again to try and resolve all the issues, without altering anything I was able to connect to all my equipment except for the Zwo Camera. My mount and focuser connected correctly and this is without altering anything.

The camera would not connect and I got the same message as before 'No ASI Cameras Detected. Power On?'. I can confirm that their was power to the camera and my filter wheel which uses one of the USB2.0 hubs on the camera works correctly.

For some reason my camera is not being picked up by EKOS etc

Having followed a video I was also able to create a log showing my devices and drivers etc. On checking this log I can see no mention of the camera.

I have looked everywhere but I do not know how to copy the log or send it over to this forum via zip file.

Hi,

I'm still endeavouring to get everything up and running on my RPI4 using Astroberry Server.

I've set up 2 profiles in the Indi Manager, one for my Zwo 1600MM and one for when I use my DSLR.

Yesterday I had a good day and I was able to get the Mount (EQ Mod), Pegasus DFMC focuser, Altair GP cam Guider and my DS<LR all working and I was able to align my mount, plate solve and image.

Today having had a good day yesterday I decided to try getting my Zwo 1600MM working with my Starlight Express filter wheel.

I removed the DSLR and replaced this with the Zwo 1600MM and filter wheel. The Zwo 1600MM is connected to my powered USB 3.0 hub via a USB 3.0 cable and the filter wheel is connected to the Zwo 1600MM via a USB 2.0 cable.

Having connected everything up I turned the equipment on and then I turned on my RPI which is connected directly to my router via an ethernet cable .

The PI booted up and I entered indi manager and loaded the profile for my Zwo Camera and filter wheel. Having done this I connected to the server and loaded KStars. Having loaded K Stars I opened up Ekos and checked the correct profile was listed and then I hit connect.

The system appeared to boot up then I got a message stating 'No ASI Camera Detected Power On.

I also saw that My mount and Pegasus focuser had not connected, they appeared to have failed to connect to Ports. I can accept that I may have had problems with my camera but my focuser and mount were working yesterday with my DSLR and I've not changed anything apart from adding the camera and filter wheel.

There is obviously power to the camera as the filter wheel is attached to it via the USB cable and this is working correctly and does the self check when powered up.

I've checked everything as best I can with my limited knowledge and I've even had the camera and filter wheel off my scope to test it and everything worked correctly including the USB 3.0 cable. I managed to take a number of dark files as I'm building up my library.

Can anyone help me sort this out, the camera does not appear to be recognised and the mount and focuser don't appear to be able to find Ports.

I've attached some images to assist as best I can.

Image showing the Indi Manager and the drivers selected



Image showing the profile editor with drivers selected etc



Image showing the pop up stating no Asi Camera Detected, No Power



Image showing the Indi Control Panel and the warning messages for my focuser.



Image showing the Indi Control Panel and the warning messages for my mount.




I'm not sure how to produce logs to show what is happening with EKOS etc when I try to connect. If someone tells me how to create the logs and if these will help then I will do it.

Please help med get this sorted as I've been at it all day and I've go nowhere.

Thanks

Doug

Hi,

I've now started to get all my equipment set up and running with Astroberry, Kstars and Ekos.

One of the things I've found and I'm not sure how it has happened are thousands of squares showing up on the sky map. It is obvious that I've tweaked a setting somehow to make the squares appear but I don't know what I've done. I know they are something to do with the Deep Sky Images. If I toggle the Deep Sky Images off they disappear along with everything else. They are not on Kstars on my desktop only on my PI which I've been setting up. I've attached a couple of images to show what I mean.

Does anyone know how to remove them.

Thanks

Doug
