Ok. I'll let you know how it goes. I think it would open up use of INDI to a larger audience at least.

Oleg,
Thanks, yes I’ve seen the supported list but while I understand I could convert to use one or more of those, I have an existing set of commercial software which does not directly support INDI.
- MaxIM DL: www.cyanogen.com/maxim_main.php
- ACP: acpx.dc3.com/
- Personally developed addins to MaxIM that I use for variable star/exo-transit analysis.

So while I could convert, I just simply don’t want to :-)
Has there been discussion of providing a ASCOM->INDI translator? If not, I would be happy to start it up as I have some experience writing ASCOM drivers.

Thanks,
Dean

So what I REALLY want is to use my existing Astro software on windows but connect remotely to a Raspberry PI running Ubunutu/INDI that is connected to the scope/camera/focuser hardware in my remote observatory. I have the PI setup and running the simulators for the device types I need.

So... if I can ask Santa for another present: Where's the ASCOM -> INDI adapter?
I've seen wINDI from CloudMakers but that works the opposite. I'm looking for a ASCOM Driver to connect to an INDI Device.

Thanks,
Dean

P.S. I'm not particular to Window or Linux or Mac, I use (and code for) all of them but I have an investment in a number of Windows astronomy apps that I'd like to continue to use.

Thanks! I knew it had to exist!

I've just downloaded it and built it under VS2015. I'll be starting to use it immediately ;-)

Thanks again,
Dean

Hello,
I'm relatively new to the INDI world so I'm posting here to see if there is a solution completed or development in progress on either a Windows client library. It seems that it's possible to build libindi under cygwin but I'm specifically looking for a c# managed .NET client library.

If nothing is in the works on this... and it's something that the community would deem useful... then I'd like to start a project to accomplish this.

Thanks,
Dean
