Hi,
I have created an INDI driver for this camera: github.com/bgilsrud/indi-ffmv

I created it for the purpose of using the camera as an autoguider. It works OK...but the camera is just too noisy at normal temperatures (~70F) for longer exposures. If you want to use it for planetary imaging, you might be better off just using coriander as it supports the camera natively.

Thanks,
Ben

Hmm, I don't think I have pushed my latest changes to the github repo. I'll try and do that tonight.

Thanks,
Ben

Hi Oleg,
Do you have libindi-dev installed?

I just pushed my latest changes to the repo so do a git pull to update.

Thanks,
