Hi Paolo. Thanks for the reply. I need to investigate a bit more
I'm adding more info.
I've updated the complete astroberry suite to 2.0.3, indi 1.9, kstars 3.5.5 and latest qhy SDK 21.09.16. Same result.
In general, I experience a very strange behavior of the cooler. For example, the following screenshot shows the cooler stuck at 100% but no cooling at all. I have an amperemeter and showed very low power consumption. So, even if ekos was showing 100% cooling power, it was not cooling at all:
I'm experiencing problems with the cooler function with a qhy268M.
The cooling power, in auto mode, does not exceed from ~50%. This prevents reaching an usable temperature. I can manually set the cooling power, and it works. But when setting a particular temperature, the auto mode kicks in and then does not regulate well. Sometimes, if I play with buttons (on, off, manual, etc.), I get it to work.
Thanks in advance.
Martin, I would definitely try with a powered usb.
I've also a rpi4, but not so many devices connected, yet. For the moment I have connected to the rpi: mount eqr6 pro, guide cam (qhy5L-II) and an electronic focuser. Everything works perfect, but I'm pretty sure I will face some power problems in the moment I connect my future QHY imaging camera. I've read it multiple times. So I will try to be prepared to face some issues. I guess the rpi power supply also could be related. How do you feed the rpi? batteries?
Afaik, the 12v power supply for the qhy camera, it's only for the tec cooler. Nothing related with usb
I thought updating sdk manually was good and resolved some issues. Good to know it's better not to do it!
thanks!! good to know!
I'm also an Astroberry (2.0.3) user running on a rpi4. My devices are: eq6r pro mount, electronic focuser, qhy5-ii-l mono guide cam, and a dslr as the main image camera (planning to buy a mono QHY, but still deciding). My 4 usb ports are busy. Everything is working fine. It's true I have had some problems, and actually sometimes kstars crashes or experience some strange behaviour, but I can live with it. The solution is fantastic for remote imaging.
For now I will continue using this setup, and I recommend it.
Can anybody confirm, by the way, if actually two qhy cams work together at the same time flawlessly?
Glad to find this post and exchange experiences.
I'm very interested in this info. Any updated feedback? I also use astroberry 2.0.3 and would like to know how this cam performs with astroberry.
oops, bad news then I guess I will have to deal with those problems ((
Thanks for the reply. Why didn't work with rpi3/4? In fact I want to use an rpi4 for both cams, at the same time
Thanks for the replies guys! I would like to hear from someone who effectively (and hopefully!) runs a qhy guiding cam and another for imaging
