Connection issues in N.I.N.A

Recommended Posts

Hi all

ive just received my new eagle 5 pro and have set it up correctly following the Primaluce lab manual ,I’ve downloaded Ascom and drivers for all my equipment, then downloaded n.I.n.a . I can get into the Nina app but when I try to connect the eagle in the switch tab it first off connects then suddenly it losses connection then won’t connect again after . I check in the settings tab and it says eagle not detected , I’m perplexed as when I go into x manager it comes up on the screen with out any issues . I haven’t connected anything else yet I will try that on my next day off

I've no experience with an Eagle (or any mini PC), but one thing I found when trying to connect NINA to my rig for an Autofocuser was the length of the USB cable.

I previously had a 5m USB2 cable, to connect my laptop (indoors) to the rig, and when I installed an EAF it simply wouldn't transmit enough power over that length. The EAF would disconnect in exactly the same manner as you describe.

My solution was a powered USB3 hub, this is the one I ordered, along with a length of USB3 cable to send data back indoors. It just means that I have to have power outside (assume you have this for the Eagle anyway), so currently I have an extension lead housed in a dribox. This allows me to power a 585mc pro camera for planetary imaging and an EAF, with no disconnects.

Hope that helps.
