I am trying out NINA, but NINA is having trouble retrieving image from the ASI183mm-Pro. Error messages:
Error retrieving image data from camera
Camera download failed.
I expect this is due to my total inexperience. Is there any trick to this?
I have tried a couple of times, but each time NINA:
1) connects to all my equipment (camera, filterwheel, focuser, mount)
2) it slews
3) it seems to platesolve; ASTAP does not work (missing database), but PS2 (which I use for APT) works
4) but I cannot get it to give me a liveview loop to get focus
Tonight it seem to initial capture an image for platesolve, but after that I get errors. I tried opening Sharpcap to try to give me something to focus, but I have use Sharpcap very little and I did not get that to work. I thought that connecting Sharpcap may have messed up the connect to NINA. So I shut down Sharpcap, and still get the NINA error.
I was going to give tonight more time trying to get NINA to work. The past couple of nights I needed to image before the weather gets bad again, so I gave up and went to APT to capture.
I want NINA to AF, with my Celestron Focus Motor. I have been having to focus manually w/ Baht mask when using APT.
