Has anyone used the new iOptron Firmware with the INDI drivers? #41811
Do you mean the official versions, or betas? I'm running 190424 on my CEM60EC. Yes, this works with the ieqlegacy driver. The new (refactored?) ieq driver seems to have issues with parking.
I have not tried the ioptronv3 lately. So far I always got timeouts when reading position, but that was also the case with the previous firmware (some 2017 version IIRC).

Hoi I have received the iOptron CEM60 last week while running dry test its seems, i cant define my custom park, can some one tell me what the normal procedure is in INDI, anyway the driver doesn't pickup the park position defined via the hand controller

I'm not using beta drivers I'm using GA ones from about 2 or 3 weeks ago. board=190318 controller=190312 ra/dec=190220
Parking: Yes! there is some strangeness but its not a problem really. I discovered initially that after the INDI park slew completes, the mount immediately starts a slew to the park position configured in the handset. My solution is to set the custom park position in the handset to the same ALT AZ that I used in INDI. So for example. My park position is the eastern horizon. So I set a custom park position in the handset of ALT=0 AZ=90 and the same in INDI. Now I have no problems parking and unparking.

To set the park position here is what I do.
Slew the scope to where you want to park. Then open the indi panel from kstars. Then click the telescope driver tab, then click 'Site Management'
Then click 'Current' in park options, then click 'Write data'

derek thanks for your reaction , i think the park buttons must be still investigated. it looks like it doesn't save a new position and purge the data doens't help in this
but setting the park position with the hand in indi Control workes for me now AZ: 90 en ALT 0,

Thanks for testing the driver. Recently, I did a major overhaul of the driver to support the new firmware. If you want the old driver, just use iEQ Legacy.
For the new default drivers, I will need the logs to figure out what's going on with the parking position. It differs depending on what model you have.
If you are using KStars, then to slew a custom parking position, simply click anywhere on the sky map --> right click --> iOptron --> Slew & Park here. This should slew the mount and park it at this location. Check ~/.indi/ParkData.xml to verify the parking data.
Enable INDI+Mount logging and then share the log file.
