Ahh I dont but I do have a description of the wiring in the docs of the arduino sketch
github.com/dokeeffe/cloud-rain-monitor/b...der/SensorReader.ino
I'll add a wiring diagram soon as its actually really simple.

I build one ( github.com/dokeeffe/cloud-rain-monitor ) but it does not use a camera. It uses an IR sensor to measure cloud. Works well with INDI and EKOS scheduler. Complete safe shutdown if clouds roll in or it rains.

Wow that was fast! I just wish I had a CEM120 to test with :-)
I noticed in the docs it says.....
'The mount must be aligned first before establishing connection with INDI.'
Is this just for the first time the mount is used with INDI? Or does it need human intervention every time the mount is powered on? I'm asking because I'm considering getting a CEM120 and the observatory is remote (I'm not there to perform the initial alignment).
Thanks,
Derek

Yes it looks pretty good. Been reading on a few other forums about it. You may still need to guide for longer exposures but with good polar alignment it looks like some some people are getting by unguided for a minute or two. Most of my images are 60 or 90seconds (for photometry) so not guiding would really make everything more productive.

Actually now I'm thinking of going for a CEM120. Anyone out there using one with INDI?

Hello,

I'm investigating re-mountin my Celestron C11 and looking at the CEM60 with high res encoders
www.teleskop-express.de/shop/product_inf...--27-kg-payload.html

Anyone using this with INDI & EKOS?
I mean is it safe to leave unattended?
Does it reliably park and unpark?

Thanks.
Derek

Jasem,
Yes I agree with you, I dont think EKOS should get too complex. I think it should be just data-acquisition only. Data reduction should be a different application. There are lots out there. I use astropy's ccdproc for calibration (bias,flat,dark correction) and photutils for photometry. Although in the video above the graph was created with astroimagej.....
The EKOS shutdown script triggers my data reduction pipeline and works well. I think its better to get ekos to integrate with something else rather than build in photometric features into it.
