Suggestions for Optec FocusLynx/Leo configuration was created by astronomerc

Hello all,

Just wondering if anyone has any experience with using an Optec Leo
focuser with Ekos/INDI. The focuser is controlled by the FocusLynx hub.
I would assume that the FocusLynx driver would be used, but there is
not actually a "Leo" selection among the several available.

The Leo is a high-torque focuser similar in aperture to the Gemini,
but without the rotator, with less travel (about 8.9mm), and (I
believe) about 112000 steps. If someone has a thought as to what
the best or closest approximation of a focuser type would be out of
the current selections, and/or configuration suggestions, I would
appreciate your advice.

Thanks,

Greg

Hello again all,

Actually, it looks as if none of the supplied options will actually
work with the Leo focuser. Therefore, I must write my own
modification to the FocusLynx driver, or wait until some
enterprising person does that.

That may mean I will have to forego using KStars/Ekos/INDI
until that work is done. :-| Or try to use a hand controller
(manual operation) until that work is done.
