Hi
I had a reply from Hitecastro today concerning INDI driver for the Mount Hub Pro V4.
They state that they are in touch with the INDI developers. They also said they plan to provide them with a development unit so that they can use it for develop and test.
So it sounds as if they are serious about INDI drivers. As to if this extends to all there products we shall have to wait and see.
It can only help if you mail Hitecastro about the particular Product you would be interested in. Keeps it in there mind.

The Moonlite driver did recognize it and connected, but nothing worked. Couldn't change focus, it couldn't read the temperature, etc.

I tried to contact the maker again, but with no luck.

Assuming nothing changes, I strongly suggest NOT buying this focuser - which is a shame, because it is a neat unit, bundled with the dew heater controller as well.

Thanks for giving it a try. At least it connected to the Moonlite driver, thats a start.
Did you actually manage to contact the supplier or was there no reply.
I did contact him about a year or so ago and he did not think it was worth the amount of time involved in developing a driver for the amount of sales he would receive in return.

Knro mentioned if the supplier will release documented protocol then developing a driver wouldn't be too difficult.
I will try to contact him again and ask if he is willing to release the information on the protocol.

Hi
Has anyone tried one of the SharpSky focuser`s with either the Moonlite or Robofocus INDI driver, as suggested here?
Sharpsky pro is a very nice little focuser unit. I also includes a four channel dew heater controller to the same box. It would be great to get it working with INDI.

Thanks, Graham

Graham Cornford replied to the topic 'Mesu Mount 200 Driver Request' in the forum. 5 months ago

Hi
I did contact Sitech and was told that the driver would be available around Christmas. The question has reasonably been asked again on the Sitech Yarhoo group. It seems Sitech have a working INDI driver but other (paid) work may be getting in the way of further development. I suggest you join the Yarhoo group and add your voice to others on there who would like to use the INDI driver. There was some suggestion by Sitech that " I'll take a few folks that want it to work under INDI, and help get them going" ?
I think that if an INDI driver were to become available a lot of users would go through the perceived pain of switching to Linux. There always complaints and problems with Win 10 updates etc.
After email conversations with Sitech I went ahead and purchased my Mesu 200. It is increasingly looking like I may have to use windows. Everything else I have works very well with INDI, Kstars.

Hi
I have been trying to run a Meade DS 1. I get the message "KStars detected INDI driver indi_dsi_ccd crashed. Please check INDI server log in the Device Manager" when I start INDI in Ekos. I have selected the Meade deep sky imager driver in the profile. The crash occurs if the CCd is plugged into the machine or not.
Hope someone has an idea of what is going on.
Log file is attached

Hi
I have had a reply to my request for an INDI to Sidereal Technology.

"working on an INDI driver. If you want to test the first version, keep an eye on the SiTech Yahoo usergroup. It will probably be released by the end of the year. If you want to wait for an offiicial release, keep an eye on our webpage."

So it looks like it is going to happen. We just have to wait a little while.

knro

I have talked to my local supplier and he is looking into it. I presume he will talk to Mesu. I will contact Sidereal and see if it is something they may offer in the future.
I came straight to the forum with this request as I have contacted smaller suppliers about Indi drivers. The answer is they don't get enough requests to warrant the effort involved. So probably more INDI users need to keep requesting drivers from all suppliers. I will report back.
Thanks for all you great work

Hello all, my first post here. Please take it easy on me if this question has been asked before.

I have been looking at the Mesu Mount 200. Are there any plans to produce a driver for this very well respected mount. It comes fitted with a SiTech Servo Controller II servo controller.
There seems to be plenty of information on the Sidereal Technology site at www.siderealtechnology.com/

Sidereal Technology Servo Controller Command Set is at ...

I have no coding skills at all. But I am willing to help in any way I can.
