TOPIC: multiple simultaneous mounts support

multiple simultaneous mounts support 2 months 1 week ago #21560

This more of an idea than a wish list.
Not sure if this feature is available or not yet but there's something that would be nice to have (ok, just for a very minority of us...).
Ability to control multiple mounts simultaneously.
Let's say you have a farm of mounts and scopes and you want them to all point to the same coordinate and take pictures of the same target.
Mounts do not have to be close to each other, they could be miles apart or even in different countries.

This can be done already, just not in Ekos. If you started INDI server with 2 mounts, you can control them from KStars.

While it is true that KStars can be connected to multiple mounts and cameras simultaneously, Ekos really only supports one imaging session with one mount and camera set at a time.

So INDI could manage a monster like this, if the client software supports imaging session for 1-n cameras with 1-n focussers?
