Hello,
I have a GPCAM 2 from altair astro (www.altairastro.com/Altair-GPCAMV2-IMX22...lanetary-Camera.html). It seems to be not supported, so I asked in the Altair Astro Group on google (groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/altair-astro) which seems to be the correct line of contact to be used if it will be ever supported on indilib. Nick Altair answers:
Is there a way to be useful to make again contact or cooperate with you about that camera? (I'm not an active developer, sorry).
Thanks
Luca

I didn't receive any such request for SDK from Altair Astro before. If they want to share the SDK, ask them to communicate with me (mutlaqja AT ikarustech DOT com)

Luca,
in any case, you can try the INDI QHY driver.
You can try my open project Astronomy Linux

Hi!
Nick Altair just said that the SDK has been sent!!! :woohoo:
Is there a way I can help you? I mean...I both have hardware and few basic programming skills.

Thanks
Luca

I'm waiting for the hardware and would start development soon after. Will let you know once something is ready for testing.

Hi,
Could you make any headway on this driver? If not, can I be of assistance?
I'm not super-experienced in C++, but with the examples, I can probably get started.
I'd like to start using my GPCAM2 with Ekos pretty soon.
Thanks,
Phil

Hi,
Nick said that will create the binary file needed to wrap all the low level protocol (that is not to be disclosed, it seems) sooner or later. So I suppose the driver is in stand-by. :(

Bye

Hi Luca,

Thanks for the answer. With the Linux drivers and the SDK, don't we have everything we need?
I'm afraid if we wait for Nick, we might wait for a long while...

EDIT: just checked, there is actually no Linux driver, at least that I could find.

There are no Linux drivers. Nick initially sent compiled library that doesn't work. I asked him to fix the issue but it appears they are busy and Linux is not a priority. This is a couple of months ago. If you want your cameras supported under INDI, you must contact them directly.
