QHY 163 + CFW2 and RPI3b+
« on: April 18, 2019, 12:25:02 PM »
Hi all,

I here first want to thanks Jan for his help and time.

Second, I made test for a remote control of telescope and camera with a Raspbery Pi 3B+. I own a QHY163M + CFW2(US)
I've got somme difficulties but progres are made.
With the last SDK (5.0.3) include with INDI 1.7.7 I can control camera and take single picture...YESSS !! The previous version of driver was crashing when starting.

BUT I don't manage to control filter wheel. I receive an error message from indi : it can't find the filterwheel.
The filter wheel is connect to the camera and not directly to the Pi  (less cable it's better)

So I'm here ....interested by others that own same configuration....

The new driver seems to work.
I manage to control temp, cam And filter wheel.
First I was wrong cause I try to connect cfw2 with indi separate but it is control through the camera driver and appears in the configuration of the Qhy163m...

So it's great!

Thanks for the jobs!
