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.

Instead of using the name indigosky, put the IP address of rpi,  in instead, as APT prefers it .... :)

How would i find that out ?

Yes, I have tried it and worked fine, but still prefer full Linux set up with rpi4 and Kstars / ekos with INdI server .. :)

yeah im used to APT so will stick with that for now if i get it connected

Either in your router settings, or connect the rpi to a monitor and it shows you on the top right corner if you hover over the network connections icon...

Or log in from windows PC via SSH, if you have it and in the terminal window type “sudo ifconfig” 

i had issues using the indigosky name, but worked fine using the IP address...

Thanks for helping managed to solve by using my phone and looking at indigo WiFi settings here i found dns server address for router now all connecting  hurrah 😀

Quick question, is the entire RPi OS stored on the SD card? For example, if I wanted to flip between Stellarmate and back to APT via Indigosky, then I'd only need another SD card for Indigo? Each time the card is swapped the settings and configurations are all ready to go?

Yes normal set ups are, but you would have to shutdown , change the SD card and then reboot.

It should be possible to add Indigo (i.e. Indigo_server) to your Stellarmate and get Indigo server to load using a different port then 7624. So long as you dont start Indi_server and Indigo_server at the same time you could leave the ports at default (7624).

But using 2 SD cards is the easier/safer way to do it - One for Stellarmate(ubuntu) and one for RPI Buster for Indigosky/Indigo.

Yes exactly, one card for each.. :)

Just bear in mind , dslr drivers yet to be released its in the pipe line, if ccd then you probably be ok

      I've been trying to image a couple of galaxies per night, one pre and one post flip.  On early Saturday morning at 1:30am I changed over to M82, and acquired 63 x 3 mins subs, OSC, totalling 3 hours and 9 minutes of data. 
      Camera: ZWO 2600MC at -10 deg C, gain 100, offset 50
      Telescope: Skywatcher 250PX (blue tube), 1200mm F4.7
      Mount: Mesu e200
      Guiding: ZWO OAGv2, 290MM, PHD2
      Filters: None
      Software: APT for capture, APP and PS for processing
       
      I havent really had a chance to get much use out of this camera since I bought it in December, and I havent processed many OSC images before.  I've a bit of work to do, but still very happy with the quality of the data for just 3 hours of integration time.  I would like to add some Ha to this, but purposely didnt bother during the recent clear spell, as it was moonless nights and I gathered some broadband data on other targets instead.

      Hello everyone,
      I developed an Android app - Telescope.Touch - capable of connecting and controlling INDI/INDIGO devices, for those of you who use Raspberry/Astroberry/StellarMate.
      It's really powerful, and a lot of new features are in the works.
      Features:
      Mobile planetarium derived from the Sky Map project Mount and focuser controller with directional pads and speed controls Receive images from INDI CCDs Database full of objects to which you can point the telescope directly from the app INDI control panel compatible with every device Aladin Sky Atlas preview and altitude graphs Astronomy utilities: polaris hour angle, compass, red flashlight Languages: English, Italian and French. Sky maps are translated in almost every language. It is available on Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=io.github.marcocipriani01.telescopetouch
      A Pro version is also available, mainly to support the app's development: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=io.github.marcocipriani01.telescopetouchpro
      I hope you enjoy it! I'm open to feedback and improvements!

      Hi all,
      Can anyone please point me to a clear and complete set of instructions for both setting up and using the MGEN-II autoguider with Astro Photography Tool.  I need to start right from the beginning.
      Many thanks

      Hi there,
       
      So I've finally gotten round to setting up APT and Sterallium (via ASCOM) on my laptop for controlling my mount EQM 35 pro. (I got PHD2 working on it a while back).  I followed a tutorial on youtbe about doing this using simulators in Sterallium, when doing this pressing control + 1 on the keyboard moves the simulated telescope and everything seems to update in ATP and work fine.
       
      The (small) problem I'm having is when i successful connect my own mount in Sterallium (after doing the same in APT) I click on an area and then press the short cut Ctrl + 1, nothing happens, my yellow telescope icon doesn't move to the location, but when I do it in APT, sterallium obviously updates to show the new position.
       
      Any idea why the short cut in Sterallium isn't working when connected to my mount?
       
      Cheers,
      Mark

      Hi All,
      For what has seemed like forever, the clouds finally parted late last night and the Orion constellation was very clear from my balcony.
      I had a brief window of opportunity earlier this week and had difficulty focusing on stars at all using my DSLR (Canon 450D) and APT. 
      Last night was a breakthrough; I was able to capture starlight in APT liveview and even bring the stars into (significantly better) focus!
      I now face my next challenge; I am unable to focus sharply on any of the stars.  Using my telescopes focusing wheel I seem to get only blurry spots of light coming through, despite very carefully adjusting the wheel for quite some time.
      At the risk of embarrassing myself, I've attached the images of Rigel and Betelgeuse I captured last night (on both long and short exposures, details of ISO and exposure are detailed in the image titles). This is as sharp as I can them.
      Is there anyway I can fine tune the focus? I've seen AP videos on Youtube where jam jar lids have been glued to the focus wheel or motorized focusers attached. Are these gimmicky or do they make a significant difference?
      I should mention that I don't yet have a tracking mount:  I've eyed the Skywatcher AZ-GTI wi-fi as good candidate for my first meaningful mount (with the EQ wedge coming shortly after).  Having emailed a number of retailers it seems these are in very short supply, here's hoping stock replenishes post-Christmas! I think this will let me get to grips with the equipment I have right now, definitely would like to get a sharper image, even if I'm only capturing star trails.  
      to capture the images shown below I used:
       - Celestron 100AZ (100mm Aperture, 660mm focal length)
       - Canon 450d 
       - Barlow lens x2 (Celestron)
       - APT (connected DSLR directly to laptop via USB)
       - Stock Celestron Alt-Az Mount
      All the best.
