Indi Driver for Lynx Astro Dew Controller

Hi All,

I have searched the forum regarding an Indi driver for Lynx Astro dew controller and cannot see anything available.

Is there one that can be used or does one need to be written?

I know it has software for either windows based or MacOS based systems which allow manual computer control of the dew heater so thought a driver could be used to incorporate this feature in Ekos.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

If you have the command set, maybe it's not very difficult to develop a driver for it.

Hello Jasem, forgive my ignorance, how would I go about obtaining the command set?

Hi Jasem,
I am not sure but is the serial protocol information of use, see attached.

Have sent a link for the attachment as I wasn’t sure if all of it was attached

Hello Jasem,

I sent over the link for what I think was the command set you were looking for.

Was it the correct information or is there something else you require?

Many thanks, Richard.

It is, thanks, but I'm currently busy with other drivers, so it will have to wait.

hi Richard,
the command set seems to be quite easy to implement in a INDI driver.
Do you have any programming experience?
Following some good tutorials and with the support from this community, you could give it a try

The commands seem quite simple, I could probably make a quick driver based on my USB_Dewpoint or Arduheater driver if you can compile and test it.

Edit: done, if you pull my fork from github.com/jpaana/indi.git and check out branch called lynx_astro and build it, there should be a new driver called indi_lynx_astro that hopefully does something with the device :) If / when it doesn't work quite perfectly, debug logs hopefully help me find why.
