Hi!

recently I trashed my Littlefoot V-power, an action that left my without a stepper controller for my rather heavy Houghton telescope. Beyond that, I was annoyed by the plethora of adapters, cables, additional programs hampered by Windows component updates and so on. So I programmed my own stepper controller on a Raspberry Pi 3, which features standalone autoguiding via INDI, observation lists and catalogs, an LX200 interface and a ST4 interface. Not all features are fully tested and everything is in a very early stage - but code is available and I documented the project a little bit. It can be found under TSC-Wiki alongside with the C++code. Comments are highly welcome ...

hi!
just a little update - more testing, debugging, hardware addons like a hardware watch and an internal USB/RS232 converter, all INDI cameras (theoretically) and above all a rather stable interface to Sky Safari, CdC, Stellarium , SkyTechX via ASCOM (thanks knro for INDI, btw ...) - screenshots are in the appendix of the wiki ... github.com/selste/TwoStepperControl/wiki/TSC
