Pierros,

thank you so so much for your so nice RPi hat. I have received the board (v1.2) I manufactured and I am going to start getting all components. However, I would like to know if there is some advance in indi driver or it is not in development anymore. I am trying to get back to astrophotography I left apart more than ten years ago due to family commitments. Things has changed and nowadays this hobby is affordable yet expensive depending on your target.

I suppose this project is in a standby period. I don't have any complete board yet as I was thinking in personal use and only if the driver is evolving.

A very interesting project, looks like it can replace the Pegasus UPB V2 I have.
Is there a focus controller ?

Hey all, Pierros here (the dev that started astrohat). Here is a bit of an update so far:

The version 1.2 that is released has been working quite well so far except the following:
- The adjustable voltage channel is not operational
- The sensing of the dew heaters channel is not working

Apart from those two issues that are now identified and will be fixed in 1.3 everything else seems to be working as it should. As a matter of fact astrohat has now been tested for over two months of total night sessions.
I am also happy to report that there are more than 10 astrohats now in the wild ;)
I am working with contributors to release the indi driver and you can follow our progress and general development here:
app.element.io/?#/room/#astrohat:matrix.org

To answer some questions:
1. We don't have any plans for a focus controller embedded on astrohat yet.
2. When 1.3 is released we will be providing ready made assembled boards for people interested.

I am also interested in the version 1.3 adjustable in voltage, I have to connect them to the Nikon D5300 with dummy battery.
