correct.
SynScanAltAz → SkywatcherAlt-Az

I will check it in my environment once the Wifi adapter arrives.

The INDI driver is SynScanAltAz.
This driver is for AltAz mount.

This driver must be connected directly to the mount.

Therefore, port setting for serial communication with the mount is necessary.
Upon investigation on the net, UDP 11880
It seems to be a serial communication with the mount, but in your description, TCP 11882 looks like a serial communication with the mount.

Connection is
It is Skywatcher AZ GTi ← → SynScanAltAz.
← → becomes wireless serial communication.

The explanation of Skywatcher assumes that SynScanAPP is started, but here we connect directly to mount with the wireless serial port of Skywatcher AZ GTi mount.
The possibility is UDP 11880 or TCP 11882.

If you are using serial communication using both ports, you can not connect at this time. (Since the driver only recognizes one port)

When using a smartphone application (this is a virtual wireless handle controller) or a hand controller, it becomes the SynScan driver.

One idea,
Can I set the EkosPark function based on Mr. Barker's script by excluding the parking function from the mount driver that does not have the park function?
Ekos has an alignment model, and we can also acquire the relative position of the mount from Kstars, so I think we can realize a trouble free park function.

In order to realize the park function at the driver level, I think that it is necessary to add the Park function of the EQMOD driver to other drivers.

Another mount I use is the SynScanAltAz driver that uses Skywatcher Virtuoso, but this driver will not work until I press the ParkOFF button, but pressing this button moves the mount in an unexpected direction. (I am pushing the stop button immediately.)

Even if you press the park button, unexpected movement will occur. . .

I want to operate the system immediately at home position (Arctic), but I can not set the park's initial value from the driver.
(Everything except the Park function works well)

I think Barker's script is useful for mounting without the Park function.

Currently I use AdvancedVX (hand controller serial) with CerestronGPS driver.

There is no Park function in the hand controller function of AdvancedVX, but the Park function can be used with the INDI driver.
(The hand controller has home commands and custom home settings, but the driver does not have that setting.)

The park function needs to set off the latitude and longitude of the current position, the park position of the mount, the alignment information, the current time and the tracking function, but the setting of the INDI driver is to input latitude and longitude information of the celestial body.

It is a very dangerous act to set the park position with only the latitude and longitude of the celestial body without alignment information.

There is no problem if the driver holds the information necessary for the park function like the EQMOD, but for drivers who do not have the Park function in the hand controller, I think that problems will occur with the current Park setting.

3. On the Linux host, use the Linux tool / application to send the command to the device that will run the SynScan App. Uses the UDP port 11881 for the SynScan Mobile command set using the IP address of the device of "SynScan serial communication protocol" and TCP port 11882. The command set is in the following location.

Looking at this sentence, I think that UDP 11881 is the port setting of SynScanApp (Smartphone).

IP address
192.168.4.1 (← INDI mount)
TCP 11882 (serial communication)

How is the setting?

I ordered a wireless LAN adapter.
When it arrives I will check the connection with INDI.

I am using the SynScanalTAZ driver.
The rack is not EQ but ALTAZ.

> Mr. Barker

In order to realize the Park function without implementing the park function, we think that it is necessary to satisfy the following elements.

· Synchronization of local time of hand controller, synchronization of planetarium software, mounting position information when INDI driver, INDI driver is connected
· Discontinuation of current "park off" button
· Abolition of registration function by absolute position of INDI driver

The park function is useful for users who use mounts mounted at the same location, but if you use mounts that do not have that feature, synchronize the local time and send the current location information of the mount I will tell you Align them.
It is necessary to synchronize all of the INDI driver, planetarium software, hand controller from the PC.

Since the parking function of the current INDI driver is not such a specification, it is a very dangerous situation for mount users who do not have the park function.

It is wonderful to realize this function.

A little worrying thing is that it needs to be replaced with INDI's current parking function and it needs to be configured to work even at remote connection.

The current INDI driver has the configuration file locally and feels like using the configuration file on the operating side.
If you do not add the sync function of the INDI driver's configuration file, I think there is a danger that both remote connection and local connection will not be the same behavior.

What I wanted to tell you is that if TCP / IP port setting of INDI's SynscanAltAz driver is compatible with SkyWatcher's Wifi, you can operate with Ekos directly without using smartphone applications.

The wireless connection of AZ GTi is the same as the company's Wifi adapter, so if the INDI driver that supports direct connection is able to connect SkyWatcher wirelessly, there are advantages for users using all SkyWatcher mounts.

> Mr. tkottary

The smartphone application will be an application that soft emulates the SynScan controller.

The INDI driver has three SkyWatcher drivers.

· EQMOD
· SynScanAltAz
· Synscan

The driver connected to the hand controller of the telescope becomes SynScan.

The other two are directly connected by using a direct cable without using a steering controller.

This time AZ GTi, the manufacturer supported wireless connection directly.
As a result, a smartphone application that replaces the hand controller appeared.

I am using Skywatcher Virtuoso. Using Wifi adapter, it has the same function as AZ GTi.

INDI already has two drivers for the direct connection. Therefore, if the driver's TCP / IP connection corresponds to the port used by SkyWatcher's Wifi, you can use all mounts wirelessly.

(For AZ GTi, the SynScanAltAz driver is used instead of the smartphone application.)

> Mr.Jathm

Can I configure multiple ports for TCP / IP connection of the INDI driver?

If this function is realized, the SkyWatcher mount can be connected directly to the Wifi adapter released by the company without a hand controller.
(Of course Skywatcher AZ GTi too)

Equator mount driver
EQmod
AltAz mount driver
SynscanAltAz

I plan to purchase a WiFi adapter in the near future.

> Mr. Barker

Can I contact Jasem and allow all the drivers to run this scripting function?

The parking function of my driver seems to be simply recording absolute time.

Although SynScanAltAz does not have its recording place, UNPark is necessary to operate, and it stops with the Ekos controller each time in order to take a strange behavior.

To my knowledge, I think INDI has not solved the park problem.
(It may be functioning with the driver of the mount with some encoders, perhaps.)

I requested before, but it has not been improved in my environment.

That was an explanation of the misunderstanding.
Connect the mount as a server. That is, connect directly to that IP port.

192.168.4.1 (mount radio address?)
11880
11882

Smartphones are not used.

The problem is whether the SynscanAltAz driver works with the above wireless connection on the port.

Things that need attention are explained earlier, but it may be a problem of INDI as a whole, but the Park function is not working properly.

UnPark starts mounting, but to start in an unexpected direction, press the stop button on the Ekos mount controller to stop the mount.
Then use the Ekos mount controller or manually introduce any star and adjust the star using the planetarium software synchronization function such as Kstar .

If there is no problem with the Ethernet connection of the driver, I think that it works with the IP address and port number set in the smartphone.

The smartphone application is an emulation of the SynScan controller.

This driver has the same function.

I use Skywatcher Virtuoso with a serial cable.

4100 index (TYCHO - 2) importance in solver

I used RaspberryPi 3, Ekos Solver, but I only used index file 4200 ~.
As a result, many errors occurred and it took time to solve.

Normally, Pi will be used as a remote hub using Mac. It solved very quickly.

I thought it was a difference in machine speed.

However, as with Mac, installing all 4100~ indexes on Pi has significantly reduced errors and improved resolution speed. Until now it took several minutes to solve it, but it was solved in nearly 10 seconds, with little error.

If you are using a solver with a single board computer, be sure to install all 4100~ index (TYCHO - 2).

The speed of the solution really surprisingly improves.

The home position is North Pole. )
