I attach the steps to make the image of iAstroHub 2.2 with the working AP mode in CX919.  See the previous post for the image file and details. 

Hi Anat,

 

thanks for all the good work!

I've ordered the CX919 from your link, am still waiting for it to arrive. One thing is not clear to me; do i need to use the image file "iAstroHub2.2_CX919_20150311.img", write to SD, insert & run and that's it?

Or do i need to use iAstroHub2.2 src.zip from Sourceforge and follow steps as described in file "steps CX919.txt"?

 

Kind regards

 

Jasper

Jasper,

 

You can just flash the image file "iAstroHub2.2_CX919_20150311.img" Nothing else to be done. The step is for people who want to build everything from sources.

I see.  For SBIG cameras, iAstroHub should work with all recent cameras with USB ports. It has been tested with ST10, ST2000, STF8300. 

For QHY supports, please refer to the website on openskyimager:

Anat,

Perhaps a noob question, but this is baffling me.  Pointed West, auto guiding is fine.  Pointed East, guiding works for a few seconds and then is rapidly lost only in one axis.

I aligned on a different star, and the same issue.  I rotated the camera (QHY5II-L-M), recalibrated, and the same result.  This happened over two separate nights, only when pointing East.

 

Thoughts?

Jeff

Set Dec gain to zero and see the result. If it happens, it means the problem with your mount setup
