Hi, just to say the issues of switching to 8bit seems to have disappeared when running KStars 3.5.4 and Indi V 1.9.1. Maybe there is an updated ZWO driver out there too - but I don't know how to check that.

Hi, as an updated, I'm now using KStars 3.5.4 and Indi V 1.9.1 and it is now performing as expected - namely the Image Info tab shows 16 bit etc, and there doesn't seem to be the same variability of image download speed.

Well I tried this evening and couldn't replicate the issue using some test scripts (on KStars version 3.5.4 Stable (Build 2021-07-15T21:15:09Z)).

I tried the following: (1) one target with 1000 images, and (2) 25 targets with 50 images each (for ease they were actually all the same target to be quick).

Thinking out loud the obvious variables which are different from last time (software versions put aside of course!) are (1) I did not load a .esl sequence file, I manually created it then ran it, (2) only one target used, with no focus etc and (3) a single .esq file used for each target.

I will have to wait for some better weather and test in anger as they say.

I recently did a full upgrade on AstroBerry so will try this again as I've not had a chance to do much testing since my original post.

One thing to note from memory I had the error in the following two circumstances (1) one target with a lot of images all going into the same folder, and (2) multiple targets with different folders.

I am sure there are some out there asking why take hundreds of images of a target like this, but lucky imaging can be very good for splitting double stars.

Hi Lars, can I ask, do you disable DPC (Defective Pixel Correction(, otherwise known as the Sony Star Eater algorithm. As this is now possible to disable, eg by running this before starting the camera "sudo vcdbg set imx477_dpc". Please see here: www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=277768

Thanks
James

As as quick update the same happens with Indi version 1.9.0, namely not letting me switch to 16 bit, and variable download speed (though less this time as it is on a laptop running Mint (varies from 0.46s to 1.62s though).

Hi, i'm currently using INDI Library: 1.8.7 and have noticed two issues with my 5Dmk2, using the "Canon DSLR" Indi driver.

First off in the INDI control panel under the camera "Image Info" tab it always reverts to 8 Bits per pixel. If you change it to 16 bits you can see it change, and then it flips back to 8 bits immediately by its self. What is causing this? I thought .CR2 files were 14 bit depth, and I am selecting native rather than FITs files.

Secondly I notice the download time is vary variable.  The below is a log from 10 x 30s exposures. The download time varies between 7s (great!) and almost 30s (not so great). What is causing this variability?

Is it something to do with fits viewer as I note download is always <1s if I disable viewing images (also all processing is currently disabled for FITS viewer).

I could disable FITS viewer bit I do like to see the images in case there is an issues (usually mechanical with the mount!).

Running on a Rpi3+, with just KStars running on the PI, and viewing remote via TigerVNC over wifi on my W10 laptop.

Log from Ekos while running locally on the Pi.

Unfortunately I've noticed the tab is missing for an HEQ5 too. I will have to look on the Firmware tab as I've not noticed it say custom (or at least not that I remember).

I've found a way to get 16bit on the first image taken, the "Loop" option in CCDciel will return a 16bit FIT at first, then swap to 8 bit after that. But pressing the "Preview" button doesn't, very strange!

Have a look at Jasem's first comment (which is the fifth comment including the original post counting from the start of the thread) where he explains what the change was and why.


But that doesn't quite answer it though - what you see today now implies the camera always fails on the first image capture it takes because the first images is always in 8 bit mode. It now never takes a 16bit FIT with a revert to 8bit later on in the capture sequence after a fail.

Where as before I never had the failed to capture or receive image (or it constantly looping on the same exposure) using my 120. This is why wonder if there was a fundamental change to the driver which makes it now always fail on the first capture in 16bit mode, as apposed to the 16bit to 8bit change after a fail being the only change.

If any camera switches back to 8bit by itself, then this is a bug that needs to be resolved. Is this random? can it be reproduced somewhere? Any insights appreciated.

Could be yes, but I'm not 100% sure. The error message window looks the same as in the screenshot after it has crashed out but maybe the actual error text shown before the crash is different. It doesn't let you click the OK button on the message box as soon as it pops up and then a few seconds later you get the crash.

KStars/Ekos is running locally on the PI with all hardware connected locally and I'm looking at it on remote desktop (which happily stays connected and responding fine all evening without issue). The network share "shouldn't" (famous last words!) be having any impact I would speculate. I've also tried sequence files created on the EKos schedule window and ones I created via text editor in case it was a permissions issue on that file and it happens in both cases.

I've not noticed any issues with the file numbering as I'm doing a max of 50 images for each exposure length so the number in the file name is resetting as expected when the next exposure length begins. I also have the timestamp in the file name and the gap between images is never <1.2 second (min 1s exp plus transfer between camera and pi time). The access violation is on the .esl sequence file.

This evening i've done some more testing. I created some .esl and .esq files using Ekos (the ones above I generated in excel) and the same happens.

The first was 4 targets = 600 images. Then I added some more targets, saved it down and ran again. But after 5 images it failed (so 605 images successful since EKos was started).

I then started it again and if my maths are correct it has failed again after another 605 images. Feels like too much of a conscience. Is Ekos keeping some sort of log of what it has done as I note on EKos restart scheduler knows how many images it has taken of each target or is it scanning the image directory?

Hi, please see below - note the .esq file has 30 targets.

A few other points of note it consistently does it, so restarts don't matter, it will still crash out after a few targets have completed. By the end of yesterday it was doing it after two good targets then fail. No other machine accessing files via the astroberry created share, and about 20GB+ free on the memory card. Also I'm not sure if it is related but when I tried to move over files to my laptop it came up with an error on some of the transfers which were the last files written before a fail and subsequent restart - it would not let me delete those from windows, but could delete from the PI file browser ok. No issue with the content of the file.

Thanks in advance!
