Stupid me, I bookmarked this url some time ago and I don't remember of this "problem" of the reset on connection. I spent a week to check a way to solve this issue. Tomorrow I will try to add a 10uF cap between Rst and Gnd

So the problem is not the string format, but is that if you use arduino with indi, it fail the first connection. If i remember correctly it occurs also in other procject live indiduino meteo o the the new whetterradiometeo

I am working to make and arduino code, copatible with the NightCrawler indi driver. Actually the problem is that it fail the first serial connection and at the second connection, I found the rotator posizion at 16ticks. If i try to connect
the same hardware and code using the Moonlite Windows application, it fail the first connection, but at the second one the position is as the last used.
Indi driver, seems to overwrite the position stored in the eeprom at the first connection. I do not know why of this issue

Hi all,
I am looking for someone that have a Moonlite NightCrawler rotator (any version). Hi would ask if someone can send me detailed INDI driver logs, especially on connection to the hardware and when it should rotate into an angle that is in a tick range between 0 and 9999 ticks, and also if you start the connection with a previous angle in the range above.
Thanks

Hi all,
I would know this camera Risingcam 1600 G3CMOS16000KPA idVendor=0547, idProduct=1102 is compatible with INDI. I can't find specific information but the driver should be the indi-toupbase that has been tested with a GCMOS01200KPB.
Someone could give me a feedback?
thanks

Probably the project that i would originally use, has some little problems in managing serial commands. I am switching to another one

Some focusers are able to rotate, like this one of my RC8. A solution like this one imgur.com/a/avYSxME
www.teleskop-express.de/shop/product_info.php/info/p5769
Just create a bracket that is locked on the mobile side and create a geared ring and fix it on the fixed side of the focuser .
I was unable to create the indi driver :(

Here there is a project built on Arduino sourceforge.net/projects/arduino-myrotator/files/Firmware/

It wait for some serial commands, that execute an action, go to position, reset, get currecnt pos ecc

It is not a big problem build a system like this imgur.com/a/avYSxME , the only problem is the indi driver. I found another project that receive some simple serial commads. I am tring to convert it to be used with INDI
