It's "iOptron iGuider" driver, but it doesn't really work well and couldn't get proper support from iOptron on the issue regarding setting exposure times. The only one that I was able to run successfully was the iPolar driver.

Hello Jasem, thank you for your answer,its useful to contact ioptron ? Or would you send back the mount ? I bought the mount because ipolar and Iguider onboard and i love stellarmate und Pi ! Alternativ i must use APT and ioptrons software on my laptop , any solution possible ? But in my opinion is stellarmate in combination with RPi the absolutaly best solution . Best wishes Rainer

I got an CEM40G today.
The mount connects and working.
iPolar seems to be working too (iOptron iPolar driver)

iGuider doesn't really work.
iOptron iGuider driver sometimes works but acquisition is slow, times-out often and then stops working.
INDI Webcam (indi_webcam_ccd) - gives "Trying to connect to: /dev/video0, on device: video4linux2,v4l2 with 640x480 at 30 frames per second"
and doesn't work.

Does anyone knows ho to make the iGuider work?
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
Thanks!

It doesn't, I also tried but couldn't find proper parameters in V4L2 to make it work like iPolar.
