TOPIC: Orion nautilus 7x1.25 filter wheel no indi drivers

Orion nautilus 7x1.25 filter wheel no indi drivers 3 months 6 days ago #24296

Hi,
I were hooking up all my gears for the first time in linux to find out that there is no support in indi for my filter wheel. Its the orion nautilus 7x1.25 filter wheel. If there a driver for indi that exist for it? I don't find anything on the web. My dream to use linux for my observatory is taking a abrubt end. Well , I could change my filter, but thats not a way of thinking.
Any suggestion ?
Thank you very much.

Hello,
Did you try the INDI driver for Atik filter wheels ? It could be interstereting to test it with your Nautilus one.
If I remember, the Nautilus filter wheel was made by a portuguese company named Brightstar (and then named Nautilus by Orion Telescopes & Binoculars). And they really look like Atik's filter wheels too. So they could be managed by the same drivers.

Do you have seen this thread ? I think that Kaczorek had the same problem as you have.
I'm pretty sure that Orion Nautilus and Brightstar Quantum filter wheels are the same product.

So, if you can sniff the protocol and document it well, a driver can be developed.

Hi,
I am willing to learn to do that. What method will work , analysing the usb traffic phisycally by plugging a logic analyzer on the usb data wire spliced, of by a software mean like with wireshark? Sorry , I am willing to do it I just don't know where to start my research.
Thank you

Is it recognized as an HID device or what? Maybe logic analyzer is too low level now? How about you start with Wireshark and see if you can isolate packets for the different commands. Maybe you can even ask Orion for the protocol itself.

By reading this page :https://www.linuxvoice.com/drive-it-yourself-usb-car-6/

I think wireshark will do the job.
Give me some time to assimilate all theses new stuff and I try to sniff the protocol.
See you soon

Ok, for the Quantum filter wheel driver, It don't work. Both are usb to serial tough.
Because it is usb-serial, I use a serial protocol sniffer, I hope I gathered enought information for you to get something out of it.
I launched the windows program .exe, then every time I clicked something I export the gathered data for that action into a log file, then redo the log with another action.
The logs I made are downlodable here : my.pcloud.com/publink/show?code=kZVr287Z...yWmXyeE6pRO6UYHpzary
Let me know if that work or not or if you want something else.
Thank you
