Great work!
Even the align function works.
But it seems that with nexstarevo driver I cannot manually slew the scope from skysafari by on-screen buttons.
What should I change in the nse driver to properly react to the movement and speed commands from the middleware.?

You shouldn't need to change anything. Take a look here:
github.com/indilib/indi/blob/master/libi...iliary/skysafari.cpp

Start form Line #490. It simply set ON_COORD_SET to TRACK and then send the coords.

The slew speed setting is working fine but the slew buttons on SkySafari screen do nothing. Judging from the source there is no support for M[eswn] slew commands in the driver. Would it be possible to implement them?

Ah okay, I must have missed those. Are they they arrows on the sides I presume?

Exactly. That will make tablet/phone/pc another nice client for indi. It would be better if they implement native indi protocol driver but as is it is already very useful. Actually, this motivates me even stronger to continue nse driver development. The tablet control at the scope makes it very practical and makes a nice controller from the rpi connected to a scope - and you do not need additional screen/connections to the scope.

This is very cool! Thank you.

I have not had a night to test this yet, due to clouds.

Does Skysafari also update the rotation via plate solve?

I'm not sure about rotation via plate solve? How does that work exactly?

I just added NSWE control support to the SkySafari driver.

It works, thanks, but for some reason speed settings stopped working.
I cannot spot anything wrong with the code, maybe you can discover why it stopped working?
When you change the speed slider on SS screen nothing happens in INDI panel
(previously it nicely changed between four speeds).

Just tested and it works fine, can you double check again?

It works on simulator. It is not working with NSE - but this is my problem ;)

Skysafari can represent the FOV on the screen. Using the rotational angle in the plate solve the FOV can be rotated to match. I will check some code to see what I can offer on this. I was looking into this awhile ago. I will post if I find something this weekend.
