Hi,

is there already support for the PrimaLuceLab Arco (robotic rotator) or are you going to add support for it?

That would be much appreciated

Hello Jasem,

thanks for the quick reply, to be honest I don't know how to get the command set. There is an ASCOM driver available on their website though.

Cheers

Has anyone actually got one of these? I thought they're still only available as a pre-order item.

Looking at the photo here:



I would say that the command set would be part of the Sesto Senso V2 command set?

That would make sense as the Arco can only be connected to the Sesto Sense 2 or the Esatto Autofocussers as far as I know.

you are right, but I read somewhere Prima Luce Labs wanted to start shipping soon, latest end of the year.

Any movement on this issue? I'm in the market for a rotator and have the Esatto so this would be a good option.

You can open an issue on INDI Github and maybe fund this so that developers might step in to make the driver. OR contact Primaluca directly to ask for this.

I asked Primaluce and got the following response:

“ ​ESATTO indilib driver is not official, we do not provide drivers for other platforms than Windows.”

If Primaluce don't support it then I guess you would need to wait until a developer either has access to an ARCO, or if Primaluce would release the sub-command set for the ARCO.

The only thing I can see on my SestoSenso 2 settings dump from previous work on it is a variable ARCO (which is set to 0 on mine, which probably indicates that ARCO is not present / disabled). Although I've not checked since the recent firmware upgrade.

I imagine if an ARCO was present there might be some dumps in what we see coming from the SestoSenso 2 which would give a hint as to how to drive the ARCO.

As Jasem said, ensure there is an issue created on Github, and someone might look to pick up and work on it.

Any news about the topic? I am thinking about buying the esatto focuser. Is it likely, that the Arco-support on indi is only a matter of time?
