Gooooood news everyone! The driver is ready and documentation is here:

It should be in PPA tomorrow, let me know if you face any difficulty!

It is good to hear it. Will it work with basic DSC encoders ? That would be a killer solution for public observation that will come this summer.
Is it possible to do the same for Stellarium ?

Yes it should work with all INDI mounts. However, with DSC encoders you obviously can't do Goto/Align..etc

NOTE: You still need to use LX200 GPS from SkySafari since the INDI SkySafari driver only decodes LX200 commands.

I don't understand why you can't align with DSC ? You can calibrate the alt-az mount on sky with sync in skysafari. Isn't it equivalent ?

Sorry yes you can align, but not slew.

Skysafari is working with the simulator and connected local; beautiful. Does this work with indiwebserver on RPI3?

Setup used: the RPI3 KStars/Ekos connects to the indiwebserver running on the same RPI3. The config is remote using localhost:7624, and indiwebserver is on 8624.

Error:
2017-04-26T21:41:31 Failed to start profile on remote INDI Web Manager.
2017-04-26T21:41:30 Establishing communication with remote INDI Web Manager...

The Watchdog and Astrometry AUX, seem to work when using indiwebserver. Setting PHD2 for the guider also results in the same above error too.

Make sure you are using latest KStars. The PHD2 issue was fixed a while ago.

Great work!
Even the align function works.
But it seems that with nexstarevo driver I cannot manually slew the scope from skysafari by on-screen buttons.
What should I change in the nse driver to properly react to the movement and speed commands from the middleware.?

You shouldn't need to change anything. Take a look here:
github.com/indilib/indi/blob/master/libi...iliary/skysafari.cpp

Start form Line #490. It simply set ON_COORD_SET to TRACK and then send the coords.

The slew speed setting is working fine but the slew buttons on SkySafari screen do nothing. Judging from the source there is no support for M[eswn] slew commands in the driver. Would it be possible to implement them?

Ah okay, I must have missed those. Are they they arrows on the sides I presume?
