Goooooooooooooood new everyone!



I got EQMod to work with AZ-GTi mount. Best of all? You don't even have to use the pesky SkyWatcher App on your phone, you can connect directly to the mount! I'll add more documentation soon but basically, select "Ethernet" in connection from EQMod. IP Address: 192.168.4.1 Port: 11880 and type: UDP

Before you connect make sure your PC/StellarMate is connected to the mount hotspot and that the mount is in the "home" position. Then connect. Now by default it points toward polaris but for AZ GTi I think the home position points to Zenith?

The fix just landed in GIT, so hopefully INDI Nightly later today will get it as well.

Does it have ALTAZ mount, encoder support?

It _appears_ to be working in GOTOs and such. But I'm waiting for feedback on "home position" since EQMod default to equatorial home position and it probably needs to be different for AZ-GTi

Got it working! Compiled from git. You need to also compile and install 3rdparty.

Did not have time for an extensive test - only slewing around in my living room.

Weather forcast is cloudy for the next 10 days...

Just found out that INDI Nightly was failing for a while now, so I just fixed the error and restarted all the builds again.
