Sequence aborted while capturing darks


#1

Last night I used for first time my new micropc beelink bt-3 with W10 and SGP.

I had a strange problem with PHD reporting that couln’t connect with the camera for 15sec and stopping the guiding, but actually the QHY5-II was working properly as I didn’t watch anything strange on the guiding graphic… I changed the camera disconect timeout to 60 sec and it has work propperly during all the night, and I don’t see any guiding errors on the captured lights, so I guess the 60sec stuff has worked.

The problem lies that at the end of the sequence I programmed the SGP to take 15 darks at 1x1 and another 15 at 2x2 binning.

It started to take the dark frame, finished it but while downloading image procedure gives me a camera timeout error (this happens with ATIK383L camera).

I have tried to repeat the darks when I woke up this morning, but again has give me camera timeout error.

Here are my logs:

#2

Can you attach the log files via a link to Dropbox?

Did you try upping the disconnect time in PHD2? I think there is a setting and the default is 15 seconds. This was a problem before it was user selectable. Try maxing it out and see what happens.


#3

Actually that was the fist problem that I talk about, but I did exactly what you say and that solved the problem (I up the timeout to 60seconds).

I’ll updload the full log asap.


#4

Camera time out is related to the computer losing connection with the camera. It can be a myriad of things. I’ve seen bad USB ports, bad USB cables, noise on poorly made USB cables, too long of USB cables, and even broken USB plugs.

Can you try a shorter/newer cable? I just had a buddy almost give up on SGP because of this and it turned out to be the connector in his ATIK. He had to send it back for maintenance.

It could be the cable, I used a different one and it could be damaged. The strange thing is that it worked propperly all night with the light frames, the problem appeared with the dark ones…


#6

Yea, I’ve had it crop up at random times. Often, for me at least, it seems to be temperature related.

Try a new cable, then a different port and see if us repeatable.


#7

Looks like the camera disconnected. I’m not sure what version of SGP you’re using. But make sure you’re using the latest version of SGP as it does address some issues similar to this.

Thanks,
Jared
