I would guess(Big Guess) that the SW is still in AP mode as this is the common address SW use for all their wifi devices. Dont know the AZGTI but can you not get it to be in "Client Mode" as per your router set up and change the address of the AZGTI so that its on the same network or alternatively change the Ekso address entered to 192.168.4.1 (its in the IndiLib devices details for Synscan ) AND change the network address of your Linux device to 192.168.4.2 (or similar) - they have to be on the same network address/mask. Unless the IndiLib guys know different
Both the Synscan and SWALTAZ indi drivers allow you to change the addresses/ports etc without compiling so a bit confused.com Just bring up the Indi devices panel and change the addresses on your profile
Not sure I follow, Does the mount responds to your UDP commands via 192.168.1.20 IP ? you can do test this via packet sender app.
In my fork i have hard coded it to 192.168.4.1 but i will change that to the ip addressed entered in ekos.
I changed the hard coded ip in your source, and now I have the mount slewing directly from ekos through your driver. No synscan app running.
Findings so far:
Slew rates are faster than with the synscan driver.
The mount responds to goto commands.
I can't get any coordinates from the mount.
Tracking doesn't seem to work.
The mount responds to goto commands. - Well this is buggy as per my testing., need to work on this
I can't get any coordinates from the mount. - can you elaborate more? in the mount detailed information, RA,Dec updates every few secs. does it not do?
Tracking doesn't seem to work. - > by default the code is setup to work in EQ mode. If you see the mount detailed information, you will see the mount degrees since the boot up. I have tested this one , RA rotates 15 degrees in 1 hour.
I couldn't get the scope to sync. Stopped indi, closed everything, fired up kstars, and connected again. Now the mount is tracking, and coordinates are being updated. I can hear the gears ticking while tracking if I put my ears to the mount.
First I do a goto to Polaris, then loosen the clutches and north align with a compass, then re-tighten the clutches. Then slew to M31. At least the scope points in the right direction (too light and cloudy to confirm).
Now the mount control panel in ekos continues to update the coordinates, as if it's tracking, but I can't hear the gears moving anymore.
Restarting indi and the gears start ticking again.
I got a response from SkyWatcher:
So this means:
1. To use Option #1 above, you can use INDI EQMod driver.
2. To use Option #2 above, you can use INDI Synscan driver.
3. This is not supported in INDI.
Now the SkyWatcher document provided looks almost identical to Celestron, I guess they're both based on the same controller. So maybe the existing Celestron driver can be adapted for "Syncscan Next" driver or something like that.
I presume you know about these 2 documents - ignore if you do but the diagram in one of the PDF is an excellent summary of how things hang together and just needs modifying ,IMO, to add the Indilib driver and perhaps add to the main Indi documentation.
