Flats acquisition camera hang


#1

This has happened on more than one occasion.
My QSI 583 WSG will hang during a flats session and I have to disconnect and restart SGP.
The exposure times were set by the flats wizard for each profile.
All in all it is a great feature, but it seems to hang the camera every so often.

This is the only time the camera hangs up when using SGP , all other operations very successful.
Logfile link for your perusal. Errors, of course, are at the end.

Thanks

I cant be certain as I have never seen this error before (and I own and use a QSI too).

[7/25/2015 3:25:28 PM] [DEBUG] [Camera Thread] ASCOM (QSI) Camera capture. : The server threw an exception. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80010105 (RPC_E_SERVERFAULT))
at QSICameraLib.CCDCameraClass.get_ImageArray()
at b8.CaptureImage(Image image, SgMessage& abort)

This means that the QSI COM server (driver) failed… nothing really to do with SGPro. I would start by:

  • Uninstalling and re-installing the QSI drivers (ensure you install as admin)
  • Checking your camera’s firmware is up to date
  • Checking the camera’s power supply voltage is sufficient and constant
  • Checking in with QSI to see if they have ideas on what could cause the camera to issue that error (during a request to get data).

I will do that, thanks Ken
