@silver, saw your message just a moment ago after I commented on your thread: www.indilib.org/forum/mounts/2600-driver....html?start=12#20716

Didn't checked this forum for a while :)

You have already succes with the 8406?

Finally have time to pick up the AF hobby and start using EKOS again.
Updated to the latest versions and saw a lot of improvements in there, really nice to see!

I have the 8406 and 8407 on my desk with which I can test :).
I saw a seperate driver is created for the 8406 which seems to work ok, need to check in detail coming days.

For the 8407 I still have an issue with parking. When starting up an pressing the park button nothing happens except ekos changes de RA and Dec of the mount but doesn't slew to it. I added the logs. The 8407 has no option for setting the parkposition as I red in the documentation. It's either east or west side where it slews to depening on which side the mount is at the moment that he park command is executed.

In the logs I see the wrong commands are used for parking, below the correct ones.

Command: “:AP#”
Response: “0” Un-parking state, “1” Parking state.
This command gets the parking status.

Command: “:MP0#”
Response: “1”
This command un-parks the telescope.

Command: “:MP1#”
Response: “1”
This command invokes the parked mode. In parked mode, the telescope cannot slew, track, and
guide unless a un-park command is issued.
Caution: Any movement caused by hand controller will make the telescope into un-park state.


Last year I created a document with whishes for the iEQ45 2013 and earliers models and knro worked on this. Actually all is implemented except for two items (pierside and goto zero position). Those two together with the park option should be nice to have.

Is someone able to add/fix those features?

indi_ieq_telescpe is not for the iEQ45 2013 and earlier models. This one is for the iEQ45 PRO.
This should be added to the indi_lx200zeq25.

Besides this, there are multiple iOptron mount options all with different names.
Maybe it's better to name them more consistently? My suggestion should be to put "iOptron" as prefix:

- iOptron iEQ45 HC8406
- iOptron iEQ45 HC8407
- iOptron iEQ45 Pro
- iOptron iEQ30 --> not sure of this is for the pro version?
- iOptron ZEQ25


Also the driversshould be name more consistently maybe like suggested above?

Actually you already attached the logs before. Ok I think I found the issue.. it was checking isSlewComplete but it read a previous value.. anyway, I added a flush before the command so hopefully this is fixed. Check tomorrow.
