Astromechanics focusser on a Mac #54686
Does anyone know how to get an Astromechanics focusser working on a Mac using Kstars/EKOS/Indi?

It seems to be coming up in the system ports line (as it disappears when I unplug it).



But I get this error when I try to connect.
2020-05-27T17:48:06: [ERROR] Failed to connect to port (/dev/cu.usbserial). Error: Port failure Error: No such file or directory. Check if device is connected to this port.

This might be completely off-base, but have you tried different baud rates? The error looks like the wrong port, but the last part of the error message, "Check if the device is connected to this port" makes me think it has the right port, but can't initialize the focuser.

Also, you might try scan ports, and usbserial-0000000.

Thanks,
Dave

I haven't, but mainly because that's the one specified in the instructions.

Not sure what I did differently, but it's now working.
