Currently setting up a pi4 with indigosky which will be run via APT , running win10 and the the latest APT Beta release 3.75.2 , now I can connect to indigosky server via browser , but I can’t connect via APT indigo control panel throws up an error can’t connect to indigo or indi server server address is default Indigosky , server port 7624 , on pressing navigate server error says dns address can’t be found , has anyone been successful in connecting to indigosky via APT running win10.
Maybe you have plans to build an astroserver to control your equipment. One thing to figure out is how fast computer do you need. Too fast and it take more power then necesary (my computer is battery operated), to slow and it will not work properly. I have made a table over the CPU loads on my Astroserver during different work: http://www.astrofriend.eu/astronomy/tutorials/tutorial-cpu-load/tutorial-cpu-load.html Maybe it could be to some help for you. /Lars
To have all the needed equipment easy to use and functional is important out there in the dark. I have earlier built an astroserver and put it in a box with wheels together with a car battery. That was in mind of to be portable. The astroserver work as a standalone unit and I control it remotly. As I see it it's a lot of advantages to have it like that when doing astrophotography. You can read about the details here: http://astrofriend.eu/astronomy/projects/project-astro-server-and-powerunit/project-astro-server-and-powerunit.html But now when I'm ready to start to use my new observatory there is some different needs that the astroserver and it's power unit must be corrected for. My old astroserver works very well so I will keep most of the parts but remove the battery from it and have the battery stationary in the observatory. There are some other details that I have corrected too. As usual I have taken some photos and written text to it so you can follow my work: http://astrofriend.eu/astronomy/projects/project-astro-server-and-powerunit/project-astro-server-and-powerunit-ver2.html I hope you find something you can use, or at least one little small detail. /Lars
I have for a long time looking and read about those Linux astroservers. I'm a Windows user and don't know much about Linux. But now it's seems that they have come very far with the functions they can do with a Linux and Raspberry (one card computer) system to control the telescope and connected equipment. With a small Raspberry computer you lower the powerconsumption a lot, the weight is much lower and it's very small in size, you can mount it direct on the telescope. It's very cheap and you can divide the system on many computers if you wish. It's very amazing that a small thing like this can do so much! And the best of all, you can do a lot of the work in your Windows computer without any Linux installation, only Linux in the Raspberry computer, maybe later if I want to do more advanced things I have to install Linux in my PC, but not yet. I just have to give it a try. I will use the Kstars with Indidrivers and the Ekos software. One thing I must have is that the astroserver must be independent of the network and clients. Just use the client to start the process and have some overview. It doens't then matter if the network or clients goes down, the server will continue its work. Do you find it interesting? I have tried to document the steps I do when building this Linux/Raspberry system and have it on my homepage: http://astrofriend.eu/astronomy/projects/project-kstars-indi-linux/project-kstars-indi-linux.html Just six days ago I know almost nothing about Linux and Raspberry, but now I'm almost there to have a working system. I had a massive help from the Swedish forum Astronet to achive this. I update my homepage and correct it when I get more knowledge and experience. Linux for astronomy use has evolved very much the last years, earlier it looks so complicated, now even I can setup a system, or at least I hope to get it to work, I'm not there yet. But it's the most exiting I have done for many years! /Lars
