Fornax Mount support? #42121
i am thinking about building my own observatory. I would like to buy a new mount then, thats capable of 30+ kilos.
When searching i came around "Fornax Mounts" They seem to need no guiding at all.
So i wanted to know if they are supported in KStars/Indi

Does anyone has informatioons about that?

Fornax Mount support? #55306
Flagging this discussion as well. Fornax this to be providing very good value for the money and they claim their mounts have a very low backlash by design.
Also, they are one of the few company to provide absolute encoder under <7.5k euros
Unfortunately, no indi support is a no-go for me. I did not managed to find more information about the mc5 controller: fornaxmounts.com/products/electronics/ur...l#parentVerticalTab1
