I have experienced myself the problem with Atik cooling error in the past. Very annoying indeed, but I believe it is related to lousy USB cables. The issue is gone after I changed mines.



Just started to have the same error on my Atik 314L+

Well, will see how it goes with the new Odroid C4 and some proper USB cables :)
Not going to cheap out this time on the cables.

And here's the funny thing, I restart Kstars and check the python setup and now it's telling me all good... but if I restart Kstars and check again it's saying that astropy is not installed.
This is a weird one, I've checked the debug log and there is nothing interesting to copy/paste here.

my work around is to get this working on High Sierra:
installed astrometry-net via brew and unticked the internal solvers in the alignment setup tab

Read More...

so 100% fresh install of High Sierra (ie: disk wiped)
I've installed in the following order:

Google Chrome
Kstars
brew

Then from Kstars:
I ran the initial setup as in data folder copy and download GSC data
I started the simulators
Alignment tab
clicked on python / setup and it prompted me with the message about installing brew/python3/astropy
And the astropy installed did not work.


So I pip3 installed it, went back into Kstars and it keeps saying that it's not installed


that's pretty much it :)

I've seen your update in my other thread.

I'm on High Sierra with the 2010 Mac mini, it's a fresh OS install, and I'm unable to install Astropy using the "setup" in the alignment tab, under options / python.
It keeps failing over and over, even if I pip3 install astropy manually, Ekos does not see it as installed which is weird.

One issue I posted here indilib.org/forum/ekos/7785-astropy-pyth...-on-high-sierra.html
I opened this thread here for awareness really, to see if other people have the same issue.

At first I thought it was limited to High Sierra, so I installed Catalina and the common issue is the same: Python 3.8.5

Stephane created a new topic ' Python 3.8.x is a no go' in the forum. 19 hours 16 minutes ago

I do believe that with Python 3.8.x Kstars/Ekos is having issues.
I have reinstalled my 2010 Mac Mini (managed to put Mojave on it) Brew installed python 3.8.5 and I'm unable to use Kstars as I use it on my Mojave laptop still running Python 3.7

I do no not know if it's worth looking into this or not. As I believe we're trying to get away from a Python setup in the alignment tool for example.
Currently re-installing High Sierra back and will not use the Python setup but sextractor instead.

Stephane replied to the topic 'New adventure: a CEM25P' in the forum. yesterday

I've read again the thread on CN about the "SharpStar 15028HNT" and what I can say is that it requires a full rebuild before using it...
You also need a very expensive collimation laser tool for it. Only after lots of work it can be used to produce good images.
For the price, I wasn't expecting this. And I don't think this scope is going to be easy to use at a very remote location like mine...
