Jasem,

I have some code for the indi_celestron_gps - allows the changing of the backlash settings for the mount. Tested tonight and it works well. It has helped improve the guiding, by tweaking with PHD2.

If this is of interest, please let me know the best way to send the code to you for evaluation/review/or...

I also have some test code for a more precise slew. This is still in testing.

Cheers!

I will clean up the Backlash code, and once done I will attempt a Pull Request as soon as I figure it out in GitHub (I am assuming I need to fork or something.)

Moving on to the Nudging precise slewing...

Question: Does anyone have any ideas to determine from the RA/DEC coordinates to determine which N/E/S/W button to press to increase or decrease the RA/DEC position?

Any help, pointers or such would be welcomed.
