HFW and LCG is badly needed,

LN on and off is rather ok.

And gain is best at 1e/ADU. I'm still try to measure which logic gain is 1e/ADU. If anyone got it, looking forward to hear. Limited by the quality of the light source, my last measurement is not very accurate, the theoretical value may be around 177 to 200

First of all, the use of USB 2.0 is not recommended, there may be strange problems, including card readout and so on, and secondly, the current need to manually copy the OEM so file for replacement, other functions are the same

Further testing revealed that after aborting an in-progress shot, infinite exposure failure occurs.

The test conditions were a focus module, a 1s cycle of short exposures by the camera, and stopping midway.

Is there any way to continue shooting while running the script. Currently it will pause

my shooting until I close the script execution

Please check reproduce video. I don't have E-CAA. I just mean normal Telescope Slew. to center the targetFirst,use Sync to prove my Solver works fine.Second, use Slew to Target but solved success but dont slew and continue solving. My device has World Wide accessing VNC, if you need, you could login my device by IP port to test. ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. )

I've recently done several compilations using github.com/JerryBlack/buildKstarsNightlyFromGit for several computers. I found that Kstars 3.6.2 works well with INDI 2.0.0, and toupcam basically has no problems.

But once Kstars3.6.3 is compiled, EKOS keeps reporting shooting failures. I believe the problem Jasem encountered most likely happened with 3.6.3, and I recorded the logs.

Also EKOS 3.6.3 has a very serious bug, Cature&Solve for Slew to Target will only parse once and then it won't work or try to rotate to fix the error. This caused me to return to 3.6.2

Compile the new driver, or wait for the 2.0.0 release at the end of this month
see indilib.org/forum/ccds-dslrs/12806-toupt...-update.html?start=0

The recently compiled version has never been able to start the QHYCCD Indi Panel, I tried copying the old version of qhy dev files, still can not start the INDI interface, but on the Mac 2.0.0, and 1.9.9 Ubuntu can be connected without problems.Today the new Pull file generated another compile error because . _Atla.cpp is causing it.

For my typically usage, Onstep provide three sensors which could perfectly run 1915 zambretti weather methods. And here is a simple source code.

Wondering if INDI ALLSKY or INDI Wathdog could add the 1915 zambretti weather alerts.

Watchdog Feature Request: allows dream linkage to INDI ALLSky and INDI Watchdog. Provides heartbeat HOST IP and execution HOST IP.

Hi Mr. Mutlaq,

INDI ALLSky offers an amazingly powerful detection service that can provide full warning when clouds are available : github.com/aaronwmorris/indi-allsky/
* Pseudo-Sky Quality Meter - Use your all sky camera to measure sky brightness/quality

Watchdog offers the perfect Park and Dome shutdown service : www.indilib.org/aux/watchdog.html

1. Park Mount: The mount driver specified under Options tab will be commanded to park. After parking is successful, the driver proceeds to the next step, otherwise it aborts the shutdown procedure.
2. Park Dome:The dome driver specified under Options tab will be commanded to park.
3. Execute Script:Execute a custom shutdown script as specified in the settings property. The script must be executable and exits successfully for this operation to be considered successful.

I think if the two were combined, what a perfect observatory control warning system would be to perform park before closing the top.
Because many larger telescopes are set horizontally to park position to avoid collision with the dome.

This requires a new distinction in Watchdog between heartbeat hosts and Shutdown execution hosts.

This requires a new distinction in Watchdog between heartbeat hosts and Shutdown execution hosts. We can process the INDI ALLSky data into some kind of state heartbeat to match Watchdog's listening needs and achieve smarter Shutdown timing.

Note that INDI ALLSky still does not integrate temperature, humidity, and barometric charts from INDI weather sensors. At least the current cloud identification is already very powerful, and it would be more powerful to combine temperature, humidity, and barometric charts to link Watchdog.

If INDI ALLSKY never integrates weather sensors, Watchdog provides multiple heartbeat hosts, or at least one heartbeat host, forcing us to process the data from the weather sensors together with the data from ALLSKY identification to create a relay heartbeat service.

Actually toup has several sets of gain calibrations that I have measured in the past because the corresponding egain changes after the HCG switch. The first floor is Ascom's test, which has some reference

Sorry for bumping up this old thread, just wanted to make sure that rtsp was finally supported, I can't seem to connect here and I wanted to make sure that someone else was successful. It looks like ffmpeg is officially supported, can I call the ffmpeg command ffplay directly?

Watch a stream tunneled over HTTP:
ffplay -rtsp_transport http rtsp://server/video.mp4
