Hi. I connected my Pulsar Dome Drive to and it works great but I have one issue. I can't find a way to set home position. Problem is that even after sync position as soon as magnet go around sensor it jump back to 180 degree. On screenshots from manual I can see that windows driver can set both parking and home position but in INDI I see only parking.

Replied by nou on topic Pulsar Dome home position

Ok I will answer myself. Looking at code rigel_dome.cpp there is no method that set home position. So I will probably try to implement that as plugin which is based on does contain support for setting home position.

EDIT: Just note. Setting home angle is really simple even without support in driver. All you need to do is open serial console to /dev/ttyUSB0 with 115200 baud rate and write "ANGLE 54.4" press enter and it is now set.
