I dont trust myself with torrents as i have not kept up on the client side of things. I will just get malware unless you can recommend a client.

I would there there has to be a way to get them from the official source and not second hand.

Having been out of torrents for a long time. What is the recommended client?

I dont want malware :) Windows preferred.

Also if i run Kstars on windows where do i put the files? everything i have seen is linux paths.

Thanks!

Chad created a new topic ' RPI Camera and long exposures' in the forum. 6 months ago

I have always had this issue. I am using the HQ Raspberry Pi camera.

In the Indi Control Pane for the RPI Camera i enter 10seconds for exposure and the count down time gets to about 7seconds and it fast forwards to zero. So really it took about a 3 second exposure from my point of view.

I have to take another exposure of 10seconds and it counts down the exposure right.

Any ideas? Or is this bug that needs fixed?
Thanks!

I followed the steps under the "bluetooth" heading of this instrucable.

I will look at that thread to see if it will help them.

Looks like bailed out is used to describe leaving.

To bail out of a plane with a parachute you are leaving the plane.

Chad created a new topic ' allsky images combined with kstars?' in the forum. 11 months ago

I am not sure how to integrate, but has anyone thought of combining the images from an AllSky camera with Kstars/Ekos?

I found a script to take the fisheye pictures and un-wrap them so you can load them into the artifical horizon of Ekos.
www.fmwconcepts.com/imagemagick/fisheye2pano/index.php

Or maybe Kstars could be setup to bring the fisheye style images in instead of panoramas.  I think Stellarium can use both types of images.

Just throwing and idea/concept out there to brain storm.

Hello, i am new to setting up the scheduler.  So i have a question about stopping a job.

I have a trees to the west.  So if i start tracking something in the east and follow it to the west i can tell the scheduler to start if the object is above an altitude of X degrees.

How do i tell it to stop at Y degrees on the west so i am not taking pictures of trees?

Then after stopping go to the next job in the scheduler.

Thanks!

Hi Jasem, i installed Indi server on my Raspberry Pi via APT.

My question is when is the APT repository updated? At the same time has the github repository?

I would prefer to stick to apt update/upgrades if i could.

Thanks,
Chad

Thanks Kevin! I will give this a go!

Guess i need to look at the scheduler closer to see how it works. I have just started to get comfortable leaving the telescope running at night now that parking is accurate and i have an AllSky camera out there with it.
