When asked about an INDI driver for the newly released Pegasus Astro Uranus Meteo station, the first response was that they were working on that. Most recent feedback from them is that @Jasem will be developing the driver? Jasem, I have the device so if you want help with testing, please let me know. A device driver can be tested without having to go in 'nightly build' mode, correct?

I have the device, and hopefully by next Sun/Mon, I'll have a driver ready.

Great news indeed! I was following the Uranus thread (on CN) since it was announced, but after there was no more confirmation about INDI drivers even on direct request I had canceled all order plans....

Great! Any instructions on how to get from the .cpp and .h files on git to an installed driver in Ekos?

If you install INDI from GIT, it should be there next time you start. You can wait until KStars 3.6.2 is released next week.

I just upgraded to KStars 3.6.2 and now have access to the new Pegasus Uranus Meteo Station INDI driver. Excellent! That is a whole lot of info right there at your fingertips to monitor conditions.

There are however a few questions, mostly related to not understanding how the various measurements carry through to other parts of the application:
- In the observatory module, none of the values matches the ones from the INDI driver (either 'Sensors' or 'Environment' tab
- In the observatory module, there is no change in values if I select 'Pegasus UPB' (to which I have not plugged in the weather sensor) or 'Uranus Meteo sensor'
- Between INDI driver, Observatory and MountWizzard4, none of the Temperatures seem to match (see screenshot)







- MountWizzard4 seems to pickup the values from the 'Parameters' tab. Is it possible to add Pressure and Dewpoint to the Parameters tab? (see screenshot)







Do others experience the same?
