Hi all,

as I started to program a little bit on INDI, I wonder if it is possible to increase the repeat rate of subscribed messages like 'CCD_EXPOSURE', 'CCD_EXPOSURE_VALUE' to get it more often. Actually I see the message come in over IP at every 1-3 second. I would like to show the Exposure timer count down to know how long the exposure will take.

Second question: Is there any chance to get the status of the camera (IDLE, EXPOSING, DOWNLOADING etc.) like it is possible with most ASCOM drivers ?

Any help appreciated.

CCD_EXPOSURE value frequency depends primarily on the driver and to a second degree to network speed and congestion, so you cannot change that from the client side.

Regarding the 2nd question, not directly, but you can infer it from CCD_EXPOSURE state:

IPS_OK: Download completed successfully and camera is now idle.
IPS_BUSY: If CCD_EXPOSURE value = 0, then it is DOWNLOADING, otherwise, it is exposing.
IPS_ALERT: Exposure failed.
