I say about the Sky-Watcher Virtuoso mount www.skywatcher.com/product.php?cat=33&id=267
Who can write the INDI driver for it?

Oleg, I have no personal experience, but from reading instruction manual (page 9) it seems that you need to use SynScan controller to connect it to the computer and in this case you can probably use NexStar driver. Maybe you can also use some kind of EQDIR device instead of SynScan, who knows. Do you have one? Peter

I have the SW NEQ6 Pro SynScan equatorial mount.
On the other hand, I found the ASCON driver for SW Virtuoso mount without SynScan controller!
sourceforge.net/projects/driverazgoto/

It needs the special cable like for EQmod.

Yes, you confirmed what I said - there is probably nothing to develop. You can use SynScan and Celestron INDI driver, SynScan in direct mode and EQMod INDI driver or EQDIR (it is what you called special cable, something like this ) and EQMod INDI driver.

SynScan and Celestron driver is the worst solution and EQDIR and EQMod the best and the same apply for your NEQ6 :-)
