Ok folks, thank you very much for your help. I finally found where was my problem.... Very dumb actually, in the process of turning the .ino to a proper cpp program, I forgot to add some specific startup routine (init()) which was there in the other proper program I was building/flashing...

Everything runs fine now

My intent is to connect some "generic" devices to thr arduino like a bunch of relays and servos mainly. I am using something else for focusing (Pololu TIC).
I am trying to build the StandardFirmata sketch with arduino-cmake ng ( github.com/arduino-cmake/Arduino-CMake-NG ) but I am having also trouble with it unfortunately, I cannot build...

But eventually if I manage to get everything to work with arduino-cmake-ng, I will report it here.

Thibault created a new topic ' Indi_duino, cannot operate handshake' in the forum. 4 weeks ago

Dear all,

I am trying to set-up the indi_duino driver along with an arduino uno. To make it short, it works perfectly, but... Only when I am using the IDE to flash firmware to arduino.
When I try to compile StandardFirmata and push it to the arduino with my own scripts, it looks like something is going wrong, but I cannot understand what.
The bizarre thing is that, apart from firmata all my other firmware are working well (They are much more simple however. but can use serial without problem)
I was wondering if it was possible to understand from the indi_duino logs if there was an option/compile time variable that the IDE was setting and that I would be missing.
I there a chance that it is something related to the behaviour of reset on serial connexion ? that I am setting in my scripts ?

Thank you in advance for your help, here are my indi_duino logs:

Thibault created a new topic ' Telescope simulators: JNow vs J2000' in the forum. 3 months ago

Hi all,

I have been trying to test out some moderately complex scenario with the telescope simulator recently. It appeared that the telescope simulator only accepts EQUATORIAL_EOD_COORD (JNow) as a number for both RA and DEC and for both sending and receiving.
I tried sending/receiving EQUATORIAL_COORD (J2000) number on telescope simulator device without success.

I found out about this behaviour in this thread: indilib.org/forum/general/4989-telescope...-and-astrometry.html
This can be sort of a problem, especially when interacting with astrometry, because astrometry.net returns everything in J2000 equinox it seems, so there is a discrepancy between coordinates sent to the mount, and actual coordinates written in the fits header, written by the camera simulator.

I understand that this is the default behaviour because it eases the telescope red pointer representation in Kstars, but it would be very nice to have a switch to change the JNOW/J2000, as it is possible to do with the losmandy gemini2 apparently: www.losmandy.com/losmandygoto/gemini_manual_l4.pdf
I did not check wether this is implemented in the gemini2 indi driver, but I will try to test that soon.

Thank you for your help

Thibault created a new topic ' Simulators: pulse guiding consistent with actual position' in the forum. 3 months ago

I did not tested this feature extensively to understand how indi telescope simulator is handling the pulse guide duration, but it feels like there is an inconsistency between RA travel and DEC travel for a similar guiding pulse sent by phd2.
The original problem was stated there:
indilib.org/forum/general/4988-phd2-tele...expected-amount.html

Can someone confirm that this is indeed a bug of the telescope simulator ?

Thank you in advance for your help.
