Hello
I have a celestron telescope CPC800 GPS XTL with a Nexstar firmware controller 4.21
When I want to select the hibernation mode I have the message
Firmware v4.2 does not support hibernation Minimum required version is 4.2?

What is the necessary version of Nextar to be able to pass the mount in hibernation?

Thank you
Philippe

The answer is simple, with a nexstar remote you can't. The last driver published for this handcontroller is 4.21. This function was added with the Nexstar+
The trick is to use celestron remote handcontroler which emule the hand controller. It works fine with wine and linux.

Thanks for this information, I did not know that NexRemote was running on Linux.
There is a special version for Linux to install on the PC connected locally to the telescope ?.
Thanks for your help

After a year of using the standard celestron driver with hibernate on my cpc1100 I gave up. Its fine if you are physically there at the location, but if your telescope is remote then its not reliable enough.
In the end I wrote my own mount control system using AUX commands and an indi driver for it. It connects to the handset but bypasses the handset commands completely and sends commands directly to the mount motor controllers (AUX commands)

Not sure if thats any help to you. Again, if you are there near the scope, then the standard driver is fine, you can go outside and manually re-align if it looses alignment.

Oh thats strange
I just tried to build it now on a fresh ubuntu 18.04 machine.
I also added a readme to the driver dir in the project github.com/dokeeffe/auxremote/tree/master/ext/indi-driver
