Well,

Dusiness is taking alot of time right now and development of driver stuck somwhere in the middle

I still not migrated on Linux with my setup so probably that is a reason too

Anyway I will try to make first version next week

And yes< it is correct - difference between 2" and 3" only size

Has this work been postponed indefinitely? I too would be interested in this driver as I have to purchase either the ESATTO or a Moonlight focuser, and the ESATTO is much less expensive. Thanks for any update.

Thanks Jasem!

Do you know if the calibration works with the Esatto? In GIT it is mentionned that the calibration is not working quite well so far! Or is that mention related to the Sesto Senso 2 only?

Hello PK,

The Esatto driver is part of the Sesto Senso 2 driver. I have used the Esatto with the Sesto Senso 2 driver, before the Esatto support was added, and I now have the newer Sesto Senso 2/Essato driver but haven't had a chance to try it under the stars, as its the cloud snow and rain festival here :( .

The Esatto is a very nice and solidly built focuser. I use it with my C8.

I have been using the Esatto 3" with the Senso 2 driver successfully, however I did have to change a GPSD rule if I remember to make it work. Mine Kept showing up as a GPSD device.

Thanks.

Looks like the Esatto series of focusers need the backlash module part tuned on.  Looks like there is a lot of backlash on the esatto 2" and 3".

Currently on the driver it's there but disabled.

I looked at the indi code, and can't seem to find any reference to backlash on any driver.

Agree 100%.   There is a slight backlash problem with the Esatto, yet I can't adjust for it with the INDI driver.
The other issue is the EKOS reads the internal motor temperature and displays it as the EXTERNAL temperature.   So I cant use the temp setting in the focus module, or in the Analyze screen - as it does not use the external temp probe readings.

Think I will put up some $$ on a bounty to get backlash added to the INDI driver. I don't mind paying for development costs to make the driver work better.
