INDIGO controls the 2meter RC telescope at NAO Rozhen (Bulgaria) was created by rumen

I am glad to announce that INDIGO ( www.indigo-astronomy.org ) is fully in to the professional astronomy. After the Andor driver now we have ASCOL driver (the protocol used to control several 1 and 2 meter telescopes modernized by ProjectSoft). Now our 2m RC equipped with two Andor iKonL and one Andor Newton can be controlled with INDIGO. Please see some attached screenshots and picture of the Telescope :)

yours,
Rumen

Hello,

I'm relatively new to the INDI(GO) world and have a question I don't find any clear answer.
What is INDIGO comparing to INDI ? the next generation ? a concurent fork ? is it devel by the same devs ?
and so what's the futur ? apps like kstar will embed indigo server instead of indi server ?

Thank to helping me understand this situation :)

Anthony.

It's not a fork, it another protocol developed by Peter that can be backward compatible with INDI but with some differences. KStars officially supports INDI.

The ASCOL driver is an INDIGO driver and is a part of the INDIGO framework. There exists <strong>no</strong> ASCOL INDI driver. However, when you e.g. visit the website: http://www.indigo-astronomy.org/faq.html there is written:

Can INDI client or application use INDIGO driver?
Yes, if client or application will initiate communication over INDI wire protocol, INDIGO driver will simulate behavior of INDI driver with common base set of properties.

Note, the vice versa is not true, that is, INDI <strong>can not</strong> simulate the behavior of INDIGO. If you are interested which devices are currently supported visit http://www.indigo-astronomy.org/for-users.html

So to summarize: You can start INDIGO server and connect with an arbitrary INDI client to an INDIGO server.
On the screenshots above you thus see INDI Client (namely EKOS) which is connected to an INDIGO server and INDIGO ASCOL driver.

I for instance use CCDCiel (see screenshot with INDIGO simulators) as an INDI Client and using INDIGO gphoto2 , asi ccd, gps and nexstar driver to control my equipment.
With the latest and recent PixInsight Version it was also announced that INDIGO will be the upcoming framework for PixInsight https://pixinsight.com/forum/index.php?topic=12986.0<strong></strong>
