INDI Library supports Astrophyics range of mounts. Due to the evolution of AP mounts over the years, the protocol used to communicate with the mount naturally evolved. INDI provides three drivers you can select from to best suit your mount.
The following table showcase how to select the appropiate driver for your mount.
|GTOCP2 or older||--||Astrophysics Legacy||indi_lx200ap|
|GTOCP2||E or later||Astrophsyics GTOCP2||indi_lx200ap_gtocp2|
|GTOCP3 & GTOCP4||V or later||Astrophysics Experimental||indi_lx200ap_experimental|
|GTOCP3 & GTOCP4 (most recent driver--beta)||V or later||Astrophysics V2||indi_lx200ap_v2|
