Yes, I have connected my focuser (ASI EAF/Pegasus FocusCube), Guidingcam (ASI290mini) dirctly at the Raspi, and via an unpowered USB hub an SSD and the mount (EQ6R). Focuser and guiding cam are connected via the two USB2 ports, the QHY to one of the USB3 and the hub on the other USB3 port.

I use this setup for almost a year with no problems.

P.S.: for completeness: The focuser have to be connected to 12V seperatly, also of course the EQ6R.

Hi Miguel,
I connect my QHY268C directly to the USB3 port of the Raspi 4B. No problems so far. Of course the cooler is connected directly to 12V power supply.

Thank you for your support. i have to check this during the week, since I can not connect to my mount (it raining :-( ).
What I saw in the lib-folder of the odroid, there is a pl2303.ko, but modprobe is not possible. I fear, that this problem is too difficult for my linux knowledge ;-)

I also managed it to get the "make menu-config" work (remembering that some 20 years ago I compiled my first and last linux kernel...), but I dont find a driver like pl2303...

I'm lucky that my Rpi stellarmate still works. I thought to get with the odroid a somewhat faster system...

I'm using the mount USB port.

With stellarmate/astroberry the whole setup works without problems.

Hi Eric,
it seems you are right. The dmesg says "unsupported device"...

How do I install the pl2303? I searched in synaptic but nothing found with 2303...

Thank you.

Hi all,
I'm struggling with the following problem:
I want to set up a kstars system with an odroid N2. I installed Ubuntu 20.04.2 with kstars 3.5.4 and INDI 1.9.1. I can connect both my main camera (QHY268C) and guiding camera (ASI290 mini) succesfully. But when I try to connect my EQ6-R mount I get an error: 



I checked with lsusb, the mount is visible there:
 

I tried an "scan ports" in Ekos, but no success, always the same error. I also tried several USB ports  on the Odroid with no change. The mount is visible with lsusb, but not for Ekos :-(

What can I do to resolve this? I tried it some time ago with kstars 3.5.3 with the same problem... I hoped on kstars 3.5.4 and INDI 1.9.1

Sounds good... Is it possible, to get this version in the stable channel?

Yesterday I tried both the stable channel (with all updates so far, I'm using stellarmate) and the beta channel. Same outcome: no backlash and reverse.

I just tried indi 1.9.1, still the same, no backlash and reverse button.

Was the change only in the nightly?

Sorry for the late response, I was out of business some time sad.png

I had the Raspi with the changed case in use now for several sessions. I also had some concerns regarding the open GPIO pins. I solved that with a piece of foam which I just put on the pins. 



Last week I had about 15°C to 20°C in the night and the Raspi was working with kstars and PHD2 guiding at 51°C. This I had with the old case during winter wink.png

Till now I had no problems also during at least two foggy nights, where the telescope was wet afterwards. I think due to the "heat" of the big heat dissipator (which coveres the whole Raspi) there was no fog on the raspi (dew heater).

All in all I'm quite happy with that case

Looks quite good :-) Since I'm using an ASKAR 180mm I now (after looking at these pictures ;-) ) thinking about to get the focuser for my Askar.

Which indi driver has to be used for the AF3s focuser?

Juergen replied to the topic 'Pegasus DMFC: No Backlash setting' in the forum. 1 month ago

Is it possible to get this fixed in INDI 1.9.1? I'm planning to buy another Pegasus Focus Kit for my DMFC... I dont know if I would need the reverse and backlash function in the new setup...

Juergen replied to the topic 'Pegasus DMFC: No Backlash setting' in the forum. 1 month ago

Is it possible to (re-)integrate the backlash? Maybe it would be good to also (re-)integrate the "normal/reverse" function? It is still shown on the INDI webside indilib.org/focusers/pegasus-dmfc.html
