Recently iOptron released a new mount: the GEM45. I have access to one and found that it doesn't work with INDI. I have tried several iOptron drivers and both a direct USB connection to the mount and via a serial cable connected to the hand controller. In both cases with all drivers I have tried out (including the iOptrom iEQ45 and iEQ45 Pro) the connection to the mount times out. But perhaps I am doing something wrong. Has anyone tried INDI with this mount?

Logs attached but I am afraid they don't say much.

Apparently iOptron have reused the software for the CEM40. When we use the CEM40 driver we get a different error (no more time out, hurray!):

Mount with code 0043 is not recognized.

I will have a look at the CEM40 driver and will see if I can add that code and recompile to see if the mount will then respond. To be continued!
