  1. Hi! I purchased a Raspberry pi 4 4gb not so long ago with the intention of running a NAS and some other stuff on it. I have since then considered the possibility of using it to control the alt/az position of a mount like the Skywatcher AZ GTi with a python script running on the raspberry pi. I haven't purchased the mount yet since I'd like to hear if it would be possible. A little more information on my main objective: Weather satellites and radio has recently caught my attention and I'm therefor considering to mount a directional antenna on the skywatcher AZ GTi mount which then tracks a chosen satellite across the sky. The raspberry pi would be running a program that would send the alt/az coordinates to the mount. I have thought about sending the alt/az coordinates through a TCP socket but I'm not sure how I would connect (and if it's possible) the mount to the raspberry pi or the opposite way. Here's a video of the current software I'm working on: I've seen people control mounts like the Celestron nexstar ones but it would be ideal to make the small and light weight AZ GTi perform the same job. If you have any experience with the AZ GTi mount and raspberry pi I would highly appreciate your advice:) Thank you in advance! Victor
  2. Hello there StarGazers or shall I say CloudGazers! Hahahaha! I'm sorting out an auto guiding rig for when the clouds vanish eventually. I'm using the Raspberry PI Model 2 with Lin_guider. I'm after either the following CCD's: QHY5L-II Mono or ZWO ASL120MM Mono Let me know if you have any spare or have recently upgraded. I was going to go with an Altair Astro mono GPCAM but currently there is no support from lin_guider or Linux drivers as of yet. Thanks all!
  3. Hi, So, I have a minor setup issue for my automation setup. Here is a brief overview of my setup: Raspberrypi on the scope connected to a powered usb hub. Connected to the hub are a external wifi card (raspberry pi3 wifi is weak), an astromodified Canon 550D, a QHY5L-II for guiding and an EQ6 pro mount. The camera and QHY are connected to an OAG. The QHY5 is also connected to the mounts ST4 port. On the Rasperry Pi 3 I am running xubuntu with INDI server and PHD2 installed. Using realvnc to view phd2. indi server + webserver starts on boot, static ip on external wifi card starts on boot. On my laptop I have EKOS to connect to indi server and phd2 for guiding. I am running phd2 on the raspberrypi to hopefully this will let PHD2 have a more direct (faster) connection to the guide camera. My issue: Their appears to be a disabled install of ufw which has some groups under iptables. I enabled the ufw and enbled the ports 4400, 7642 (PHD2), 8624 (indiweb), 7624(indi) however the guiding suite of Ekos would not connect to PHD2. I disabled ufw and flushed the iptables and tried again with the above ports however the same result. In the end I have opened all the ports to allow the connection to proceed, which is ok for short term but ideally I would want some security. Does anyone know which ports I should open to get indi, indiweb and phd2 to talk nicely to my laptop EKOS version? Anyone else running a similar setup successfully? Can you give me any indications of what pitfalls to avoid? Thanks
