So I was using the iOptron CEM70 with INDI nightly build and the driver does not seems to report the pointing of the mount correctly when using PHD2 (PHD2 recalibrate everytime the mount slews, does not calculate the RA and DEC rate...)
PHD2 warned that the driver does not report pointing and I tried to add the AUX mount as INDI CEM70 and it still does not work.
Am I doing something wrong or it's a bug? I used a CEM25p and it shows the correct information but not the CEM70.
I connect the mount directly with my computer using the onboard usb port (not going through the hand controller)
Okay so after testing the data line with the ascom driver (I copied your example above and paste it into a text file then change the values) it turns out the column is quite resilient to change in number of digits. I can simply add the minus sign to before the temperature without delete any space and the driver still reads the data.
Actually, in the GIT I posted, I think it's in the older Boltwood file format (there are the older V1) and the example you send in the link is the V2 file that haves a few more column, boltwood drivers usually have backward compatible of the V1 file.
Thank so much for the help. I am not quite sure about how the boltwood file handles minus values. I think I'd try to make a file from your example and feed it into a boltwood file reader and see if it works. Again, thanks!
Thanks for the reply.

And yes, I 'd want to output the data into a Boltwood file similiar to the link you send.
I am currently using Wolfgangs' Weather Radio with Ekos very stable. But recently, I want to extend the driver support for this to ASCOM. The easiest way that I can think of with my limited coding experience is to create a parser that reads values from INDI server and writes it into a Boltwood 1 line data file which then can be read by an ASCOM driver that supports this kind of format (which is readily available).
But coding from scratch is hard for me. Is there anyone who ever worked on the same project or 1 similiar and ready to share the code? I can try to find a way to mold it to my needs. Thanks.
i have found code from someone who wrote it for parsing OpenWeather data into the boltwood file but if anyone have and INDI parser would be better. Thanks!
great!. I'll wait for the nightly build. Thank you!
Excellent. Let me test it. Is it on nightly or I have to build from source?
