Would you mind sharing which linux image you used as the starting point for your MK808 build? I've downloaded your image file and successfully flashed the device, but wanted to start from a fresh install. (I'd like to do away with the Access Point feature, for one, in order to connect to my wifi network instead.)
I've tried a few different images, but can't seem to find one that will boot from the kernel-0.3.img file. I get as far as an initramfs prompt and can't get past that. Seems like there are quite a few old links and a lot of out dated information out there. Finding a combination of fresh linux image and kernel file that work together seems to be a challenge. Maybe if I can find the same image you started with I will have more luck.
Ah ok, in this case it seems to be really important I'm thinking about QHLY8 - I will buy it some day
Thanks for the answer.
And now something completly different... I have a skywatcher motofocuser and there is a USB focus controller from http://www.store.shoestringastronomy.com/products_fc.htm. It has ASCOM driver for linux and it an control that SW focuser - do you think there is a chance to add some kind of control from iAstroHub in the future?

Quote:Hi Piero,How's going your betatesting of focuser/dew controller? Any news? Kind regards,Mikele
Quote:Mikele,FYI, I will start the development of focuser control for Robofocus soon. I choose to start with Robofocus now because I already have it and Robofocus has the serial-passthrough feature to control a mount via Robofocus. So, I can use only one port for both mount and robofocus.Best regards,Anat
Quote:Hi all! I'm looking for help. I have a Rasperry Pi running the newest Raspbian. The MK808 is on it's way but until it arrives I wanted to use the Rasperry to control my Meade LS-6" remotely. Unfortunately the Meade is not recognized and the driver is not working. Please note that the Meade has a PL2303 based USB port instead of the usual serial port on it's mount.Does anyone know how to let Raspian recognize the LS?Please find the results from lsusb and dmesg below.*** With the LS attached.

Quote:Hi Mikele,Please see this websitehttp://www.robofocus.com/products.htmfor the information. Robofocus uses a stepper motor with temperature compensation.Best regards,Anat
Quote:It's a nice idea but is it an easy task to programm MK808 to control Arduino (I think Piero did a similar thing)? For now it's out of my knowledge.
