Hi

i'm also very interested about the ESATTO2 focuser support on EKOS, i'm using EKOS with ASI1600GT + TOA130 + Losmandy G11
just remain the focuser to have every setup in remote using raspberry pi 3

i wanted to buy ESATTO2 but just saw it was not supported on ekos with raspberry pi

then read this topic, so i'll wait until it is suppored to buy it, any ideas how long to get it include for raspberry ?

if i can install a preliminary version i could order it to help the validation process

Regards
Eric

Hi ,
There is a delay with a driver, due ...work stuff. Anyway I keep working on it and will release it

BTW, you can use SestoSenso2 driver to control ESATTO 2, but errors will ocurr.

Waiting for my ESATTO 2 (almost 2 months now) . Any time available and any progress on the driver?

Even though I will start with the SestoSenso2 driver when I get my focuser, I'm looking forward to a specific driver for the ESATTO. Thanks for all your work on that.

I would assume, that whatever developments happen here for the 2" ESATTO also will work for the 3" and 4" versions as they only to appear different in size. Possibly considering a 4" for an FSQ 106.

Well,

Dusiness is taking alot of time right now and development of driver stuck somwhere in the middle

I still not migrated on Linux with my setup so probably that is a reason too

Anyway I will try to make first version next week

And yes< it is correct - difference between 2" and 3" only size

Has this work been postponed indefinitely? I too would be interested in this driver as I have to purchase either the ESATTO or a Moonlight focuser, and the ESATTO is much less expensive. Thanks for any update.

Thanks Jasem!

Do you know if the calibration works with the Esatto? In GIT it is mentionned that the calibration is not working quite well so far! Or is that mention related to the Sesto Senso 2 only?

Hello PK,

The Esatto driver is part of the Sesto Senso 2 driver. I have used the Esatto with the Sesto Senso 2 driver, before the Esatto support was added, and I now have the newer Sesto Senso 2/Essato driver but haven't had a chance to try it under the stars, as its the cloud snow and rain festival here :( .

The Esatto is a very nice and solidly built focuser. I use it with my C8.

I have been using the Esatto 3" with the Senso 2 driver successfully, however I did have to change a GPSD rule if I remember to make it work. Mine Kept showing up as a GPSD device.

Thanks.
