Given that you suggested to use indi-celestron-aux instead of indi-celestron-cgx I guess it makes more sense to add the CGX specific functionality to indi-celestron-aux. Would you agree?

Thx Rick, I'll give it a try. Quickly glancing at the code it seems that there is no special treatment for CGX/CGX-L to make use of the home switches. If the code overalls work it would be great to add that functionality. If the current contributors are happy then I might give it a try and add it (as well as support for the focuser).

Hi Rick

I've cloned your repository and built it. It all seems to work well (on a RaspberryPi 4) However when starting KSTars and connecting to the CGX the driver indi-celestron-cgx crashes. I have the latest KStar and indi installed. It looks like the problem is the Celestron Focuser. When I remove the aux cable it works. This is what I found in the log files:

Any idea what this could be?

Thank you for your work! Would it be possible to also implement the INDI::FocuserInterface interface? I assume it would be possible to copy over the code from the indi_celestron_gps driver?

Hi all

I'm working on a driver for my own auxiliary device. It is connected via I2C. Sometimes there are connection issues and I would like to disconnect after detection. The connection button of the aux device in the INDI Client should switch to disconnect and I would like to set IPS_ALERT. I couldn't find any examples. Is there a method I can use for this? Since ConnectionS in the DefaultDevice is a private member I can't manipulate it in my extended driver class.

Thank you!

Awesome!! Thank you so much for the quick reply!

Hi

I'm developing a driver for my own auxiliary device. The device is connected via I2C to the raspberry. I sometimes run into i2c communication issues that I can detect via my driver. As a consequence I'd like to set the Connection to disconnected and have the status go to ISP_ALERT. Unfortunately I can't figure out how to do this. ConnectionS is a private member and hence I can't directly change it in my own driver that is a subclass of the DefaultDevice. Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thank you
Hansli
