Has anyone else experienced this ?

Yeah I think optical trains caught me out last night I couldn’t complete a calibration routine using an OAG.

That looks correct

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:mutlaqja/ppa

I would try it again in a few minutes.

Thanks Jasem, I don’t have the debugger installed but will install it and see if I can catch it.

First I gotta re-program my mount i managed to brick it last night as it ran into my pier !

I have recently updated to Ubuntu 22.04 and I have had a few teething problems. The biggest issue for me at the moment is that when ever I have Ekos running on my Ubuntu machine and then try check it over Ekos live on my phone or laptop it crashes Kstars. This is noticed as the cloud and computer symbol go from green to red. When I then VNC into my machine Kstars is no longer running.

Has anyone else experienced this issue. I have just purchased a premium Ekos live account so this was my first time using it. I cannot 100% be sure that’s it’s an Ubuntu issue but since I didn’t have any issues with the non premium Ekos live account I have to assume it’s due to the jammy jellyfish upgrade.

Thanks.
Lenny.

You could edit the sequence file to change the filter requirement. I sometimes edit them to add more exposures which is quick and easy.

Likewise i imaged the wizard at f7 with a quad band filter and had no issues finding a star. Binned 1x1 2 second exposure

I set it to 10 as a test. I don’t have any temp control for my guide cam so the temp is recorded as an exponent number. So to see if it was due to some temp mismatch i expanded it to 10 degrees but it made no difference. No matter what I do it always says there is no valid dark. I hope that makes sense

Hi Jasem,
Did the logs help or where they not descriptive enough to help trouble shoot.

Thanks.
Lenny.

So my guidecam is not cooled so there is no option to select a temp when using the dark wizard. Also I set the temp limit to 10deg straight after creation and it still said they weren’t valid.

Sorry should have said I had this issue with my pi as well (running Ubuntu) have you tried just plugging in the mount and seeing if it can detect it.
I found it finicky when I had 2 serial devices connected my mount and focuser get mixed up.

Hey folks,
So I have this issue where my guidecam continually tells me there are no valid dark files available even though I have just created them (after purging the old darks)
So I use 2 Altair cameras an AA26c as main imager and AAGP130. The dark frames for the AA26c work fine and it subtracts them as needed, but I cannot get the darks for the guide cam to be applied.
The only thing I can think of is the temperature saved for these darks is in scientific format where as my cooled camera saves the correct temp and I’m wondering is this why they aren’t being applied.

Has anyone else had experience with this ?

Thanks
Lenny.

Hi there,
I use an AVX mount and have into trouble before when connecting multiple devices to my mini pc and it wasn’t aware of which port was which. I ended up plugging the mount in first and if it didn’t automatically connect I used the sniff function to find the port. Once detected I then started plugging in the other devices. Hope that helps
