TOPIC: Altair Astro GPCAM2

Altair Astro GPCAM2 8 months 2 weeks ago #14966

Hello,
I have a GPCAM 2 from altair astro ( www.altairastro.com/Altair-GPCAMV2-IMX22...lanetary-Camera.html ). It seems to be not supported, so I asked in the Altair Astro Group on google ( groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/altair-astro ) which seems to be the correct line of contact to be used if it will be ever supported on indilib. Nick Altair answers:

Hi Luca, a long time ago I think in either late 2015 or 2016, we tried contacting the Indy team about sending them the SDK through their website, but no response, so we will leave it up to customers to campaign for this.

We are happy to provide SDK legitimate developers to enable Mac use.

We know most customers with Macs are using PC emulation software, because most astronomy software is PC based, but happy to help out. We would need some kind of official contact from whatever company needs the SDK, to our company.

Best regards, Nick Altair


Is there a way to be useful to make again contact or cooperate with you about that camera? (I'm not an active developer, sorry).
Thanks
Luca

I didn't receive any such request for SDK from Altair Astro before. If they want to share the SDK, ask them to communicate with me (mutlaqja AT ikarustech DOT com)

Luca,
in any case, you can try the INDI QHY driver.

Hi!
Nick Altair just said that the SDK has been sent!!! :woohoo:
Is there a way I can help you? I mean...I both have hardware and few basic programming skills.

Thanks
Luca

I'm waiting for the hardware and would start development soon after. Will let you know once something is ready for testing.

Hi,
Could you make any headway on this driver? If not, can I be of assistance?
I'm not super-experienced in C++, but with the examples, I can probably get started.
I'd like to start using my GPCAM2 with Ekos pretty soon.
Thanks,
Phil

Hi,
Nick said that will create the binary file needed to wrap all the low level protocol (that is not to be disclosed, it seems) sooner or later. So I suppose the driver is in stand-by. :(

Bye

Hi Luca,

Thanks for the answer. With the Linux drivers and the SDK, don't we have everything we need?
I'm afraid if we wait for Nick, we might wait for a long while...

EDIT: just checked, there is actually no Linux driver, at least that I could find.

There are no Linux drivers. Nick initially sent compiled library that doesn't work. I asked him to fix the issue but it appears they are busy and Linux is not a priority. This is a couple of months ago. If you want your cameras supported under INDI, you must contact them directly.
