No, I just wanted to know if it would live stream on the off cahnce I want to use it to just view objects rather than photograph. I sometimes do that and wondered if it would be possible remotely in the comfort of my home. I access the equipment remotely using VNC. Just curious is all.

Actaully the app crashing while saving a capture turned out to be a folder permissions issue. I was trying to save directly to an SMB share and did not write permissions. Will there be a driver that supports streaming at somne point?

Yes, I can confimr that if I click on Capture a Preview, it takes a picutre and I can save it to my home/stellarmate/pictures folder. Do you know why I can't see a live view? Or is that just the model fo camera I have? As far as I know itshould give me a live view?

Sucess!! Sort of. I had to rollback libindi1 and install libcfitsio-dev along with linindi-dev but finally got it to connect. It doesn't give me a live view thoguh. But I'm not sure if that is a feature fo this camera. I assume it should be. In any casee I'm alot further along than I was. Thanks Ben.

Thanks Ben. I think I'm really close. I had to install Git, Cmake and Build Essentials to get there but I'm still getting stuck. This part of Linux isn't my strong suit. Here's where I'm stuck.

Thanks for the reply Ben. The requested output is below/. I believe it is very similar to the G3.

I just joined today. I have an Orion Starshoot G4 Color and I cannot get it to connect to INDI. Keep getting message that the driver is crashing. I have a Raspberry PI4 with Stellarmate OS on it and it was just installed last week. The updates are current. I'm not a complete noob to Linux (but Stellarmate is new to me, thought it looks like it runs on Debian so that's not a big deal) INDI however is completely new to me as is astrphotography. INDI finds my EQMOD mount and my QHY Polemaster, it appears to see my Starshoot G4 but won't connect to it. From the way it looks you got your G3 to work. I've skimmed through here but I'm working and can't read the whole 9-10 pages. Can you point me in the right direction so I can get my G4 working? Thanks.
