Hi all,

I'm attempting to control my zwoasi 178MM with a raspberry pi 4 with no luck. I've downloaded both the zwoasi repo (both from Github and Pypi to see if one was bugged) as well as the required SDK, however when I attempt to execute the zwoasi_demo.py I receive 'The filename of the SDK library is required (or set ZWO_ASI_LIB environment variable with the filename)', so presumably it's not finding the library. I've attempted moving the demo script into the same directory as the libASICamera2.so (I'm assuming this is what it's looking for?), but all of my attempts have prompted the same output.

If anyone is able to provide a step by step method for executing the zwoasi_demo.py script that would be incredibly helpful! It's possible that I'm missing something completely obvious... Thanks in advance.

Can you post how you solved the whereabouts of zwo asi import? I am obviously more of newbie than you thought you were.
