  1. Mine seem pretty spot on, and are even parafocal with my Baader LRGB set.
  2. Managed to get it working if I turn auto connect off then connect the AtikOne manually first then connect everything else. Very odd
  3. Back to square one, out in the observatory tonight and the gremlins are back. I’ve had to go back to a direct connection to the Windows PC
  4. Is anyone using a ZWO EAF Autofocus With StellarMate and Ekos? I know it works with the ASI Air and it has an INDI driver, but I can’t seem to find any info or examples of this setup. I’m thinking of adding one of these to my setup but would like some feedback before I get one. Thanks Darren
  5. I added it to my watch later list, last night, when it showed up in my recommendations. I will watch it over the weekend.
  6. We’ve had a result I tried an unbundled usb cable plugged into a usb2 port on the RPi4. Connected to the camera only using KStars & Ekos running on the RPi4. The camera connected and found the filter wheel home position. I disconnected and rewired the camera with the original bundled cable IMO the hub and reconnected again using KStars and Ekos running on the RPi4. Again it connected and found the filter wheel home position. Finally I reconnected everything and opened KStars on the Windows PC, I started Ekos which made the remote connection to the INDI server running on the
  7. I've just had a response from Atik Support, they say that they are looking into the issue and think it is to do with using RPi4. For the time being Atik Filter Wheels are not supported for use with the RPi4. so we may be on the right lines with using USB2 instead of USB3. Darren
  8. That's amazing. I'm hoping the do some HOO if the weather ever improves.
  9. That's it James. it seems to me that it must be an INDI driver issue that isn't recognizing the double click of the micro switch when the filter wheel hits the home position. The only thing I haven't tried is plugging the camera into one of the RPi4 USB2 slots, when I tried connecting directly to the RPi I used one of the USB3 ports. When I get home I will give it another go in a USB2 slot with anothe cable that is not part of the scope loom, incase it is an interference issue. Darren
  10. I’ll give that a go at least it will let people know what is going on
  11. It works fine using the ascom drivers it only gets the problem when running through the INDI server. The camera has worked flawlessly for the last 2 1/2 years. It has experienced this issue on ang off since moving to the raspberry pi 4 and StellarMate OS I have managed to sort it out in the past but now, no matter what I try the wheel is getting stuck in a continual loop.
  12. It looks like this has got everyone stumped, I haven’t found any workable suggestions on any forum, nor have I received a response from Atik support, which is very disappointing. Darren
  13. Amazing the hours of work that have gone into that are well worth it
  14. I had a Celestron Nexstar 8 GPS, which was the forerunner of the CPC. I started my Astrophotography journey with this scope, starting with Planets using a webcam, then using a DSLR with short exposures so that I didn’t run into field rotation. I then purchased an Orbit Wedge. This was expensive but rock solid and allowed for precise polar alignment which let me push the exposures. Adding a guide scope and Skywatcher Synguider allowed me to get longer exposures which were limited only by my awful sky conditions (Bortle Class 8). I have since deformed the Nexstar and mounted it on an EQ8,
  15. Brilliant James, this has made my day. Now if I could only get the INDI speaking pixies to start behaving again and stop mischievously spinning the filter wheel non stop. See other THREAD Darren
  16. My mount is connected to the USB 3 hub using a USB to serial cable. The hub is connected to the RPi which is running the StellarMate OS. KStars automatically starts on the RPi when it boots, but it doesn’t need to be running. KStars on the Windows PC is just running as a client, Ekos connects to the RPi over WiFi. The RPi runs an INDI server that connects to all of the equipment. KStars/Ekos running on the Windows PC just sends commands to the remote INDI server, so no Ascom or drivers needed on the PC as the RPi talks to the equipment. It was really easy to setup. I hope that makes sense.
  17. I have just posted an observatory update to YouTube you can check it out HERE
  18. I have posted this issue to the INDI forum at https://indilib.org/forum/ccds-dslrs/5884-atikone-internal-filter-wheel-problem.html and to the Atik support forum at https://forums.atik-cameras.com/index.php?topic=5396.0 I have also sent a support ticket direct to Atik. I can’t believe that I’m the only one with this issue. I’m thinking that if I am the only one, then it must be an issue with my camera, but why would it work flawlessly under indies? If I am not the only one then it must be a driver issue. Darren
  19. I’ve tried starting from a different filter. I think part of the problem is that it’s an integrated filter wheel and is operated by the camera driver rather than a dedicated driver under INDI. It’s driving me nuts. Darren
  20. Brilliant, you’ve done a great job. Enjoy your new Obs. Darren
  21. Yes nothing has changed apart from me re-routing my cables around the mount. I’ve had a bit of a tidy up in the observatory
  22. Calling all Linux INDI I'm having issues with my AtikOne when I connect using Ekos the camera connects but the internal filter wheel keeps rotating. This happens whether I connect using Ekos through KStars directly on the RPi or on the remote windows PC. I have tried different USB ports on the USB3 hub and USB ports on the RPi. I have tried 2 different USB cables and 2 different power leads. I have had this problem previously. Last time I fixed it by connecting the camera directly to the windows pc and connected to the camera and cycled through the filters with the software. Once reconn
