This driver for OpenAstroTech mounts is included with INDI v1.9.9+
The OpenAstroTech driver extends the LX200 GPS that was previously used driver and adds some extra features:
- Focusing with relative (instead of time based) movements and backlash compensation.
- Support for the Auto Polar Alignment extension.
- Custom "Meade Command" field. Enter a command like ":GVP#" and work with the responses until there's real support for the feature you're missing.
Under development are these items, but if you know the Meade commands you can use them by just using the "Meade Command" field:
- RA Homing (you need to have the RA Homing extension installed)
- DEC Homing
- DEC Limits
Let KStars set the time/date and simply operate like you normally would. More information can be found on the wiki.
There are no known bugs for this driver. If you found a bug, please report it at INDI's bug tracking system at SourceForge. (You can log in with a variety of existing accounts, including Google, Yahoo and OpenID.)
