Hi JC,

I installed the driver and hex file successfully and I can now get an image from the QHY8, but only with slow download mode (setting 0?). Fast download only provides a grey image. Is this as expected?

Very pleased to have the QHY8 up and running though - it is my widest FOV imager and still very useful.

All the best

Mark

Hi JC, Many thanks for this. I have installed it OK, but when I start EKOS, it comes up with the error 'INDI Driver indi_qhy_ccd crashed. Restart it?'.

Could this be due to me needing to update the QHY8 firmware (which I see on the Forum may be an issue) or a compatibility issue with EKOS? I'm running KStars v3.5.5 (stable).

Many thanks

Mark

Hi,

I've been trying to get my QHY8 camera to connect to Astroberry and replaced the Inid driver you prepared in the /usr/bin folder.

However, I'm just getting a message from Kstars saying the driver crashed and to try reopening.

I'm not very familiar with Astroberry nor Linux, so I was hoping you might be able to give me some thoughts as to what might be going wrong here.

I really want to replace my old PC with Astroberry, but my QHY8 is a key for my imaging and hence I just am looking for help to get this going.

Many thanks for your help and for the work that has gotten others going with this camera.

All the best

Mark
