Hello

Celestron just released (or will very very soon) a new motorized focuser for SCT's. First question, does anyone know anything about it ?
According to the doc, you can connect it to computer either through the aux port of a celestron hand-control (and so the hand-control connected to the computer) or through a USB port directly.
In the first case, I imagine celestron tools or ASCOM driver use the nexstar protocol to talk to the focuser, but I didn't find commands about focuser in the protocol doc. Any ideas ?

Hello,

I'm relatively new to the INDI(GO) world and have a question I don't find any clear answer.
What is INDIGO comparing to INDI ? the next generation ? a concurent fork ? is it devel by the same devs ?
and so what's the futur ? apps like kstar will embed indigo server instead of indi server ?

Thank to helping me understand this situation :)

Anthony.

Hello

Celestron just released (or will very very soon) a new motorized focuser for their SCTs : www.celestron.com/products/focus-motor-for-sct-and-edgehd
First question : anyone heard about it or even tested it ?
The focuser can be connected to computer either through the celestron hand-control AUX port (and then hand-control connected to computer) or more directly through a USB port. In the first case, I suppose the computer to communicate to the focuser using the Nexstar protocol as it does for the mount, but I didn't find any focuser commands in the protocol documentation. Any ideas on how to talk to this kind of focuser ?

Thanks
Anthony.
