That would be great, with a driver for this I could remote control my whole set up, the Ultimate power hub is superb and would not be without it, like i said I can control all other devices I have and as this controls the switching on and off of all my devices, focus control, and 6 port USB hub, temperature and dew point graphs and full dew control, all controlled from my PC, it is a must in my set up.
Look forward to any news on this :)

Does anyone know Who actually wrote the driver for the Pegasus DMF motor controller, as they may be able to shed some light on whether the Pegasus Ultimate power hub is also doable.... ?

Hi,
The short answer is no, I contacted them a week or so ago, and they said they were still working on it...I am waiting for it too and was hoping for it this winter....but don’t look like it’s going to happen... :(

I'm also new, and definitely naive, but how hard would it be to build something like this?

Surely the larger SBC community must have need to control and power multiple USB devices, not just astronomers?

Wouldn't have to be so fancy as the Pegasus, but it would be great to have powered USB and 12v power distribution in a single box.

I currently use a Sotobeams fused 12v powepoler block to avoid cigarette socket connections and a 7 outlet usb powered hub. The Pegasus does much more including dew heatrr and focuser control. Making the bits and leads at the mount even less of a spaghetti junction. I use a Raspberry Pi with Stellarmate installed for the equipment control with Kstars and Ekos

In discussion with Pegasus this morning they confirm they are working on Indi drivers so
