Telescope Scripting Gateway Documentation

Hey all,

I've been working on bridging the gap between Ekos and a telescope mount with no INDI drivers. I figured using the Telescope Scripting Gateway would be a straightforward way to do this as the mount has a Python API. Unfortunately, I can't seem to get the connect script to work. Despite ending the script in "sys.exit(0)" Ekos continues to return that it failed to connect.

I can't seem to find any documentation on the scripting gateway outside of the text file "telescope_script.txt"

If someone could point me in the right direction that would be greatly appreciated.

For those who may run into the same issue I did in the future...
If you enable debug and see that a script is returning 512 you need to add "#!/usr/bin/python" to the beginning of your script.
