Not as far as I know. I believe the SBIG universal library provides controls for the spectrograph, but no driver was developed since no one apparently had this spectrograph.

Jasem Mutlaq replied to the topic 'Has anyone used the new iOptron Firmware with the INDI drivers?' in the forum. 3 hours 5 minutes ago

Ok, so no response from iOptron yet. What's the best way to go about this?

Have a switch for "Park Orientation" with two switches: [ CW Down ] [ CW Horizontal ]

For the first case, we always set set Az to 00:00:01 and for the second case we set Az to 0 ? is this an acceptable solution for most users?

or you can ask the imaging source to develop an INDI driver for their cameras? It might be a long shot but with enough users asking...

Jasem Mutlaq replied to the topic 'A better FITS viewer?' in the forum. 17 hours 22 minutes ago

Right, there is no time to redo many of these issues in FITSViewer. The histogram needs some rework, but the crash that was caused by it is fixed now at least.

The code inside FITSData and FITSView is very slow and doesn't use any modern graphics library. There are some elements that perform parallel operation, but they're performing the _slow_ operations in parallel so there is that. No gamma/shadow controls that are quick and [/b]responsive[/b].

As Robert pointed out, we proposed FITSViewer Overhaul as Google Summer of Code project for 2019, but we didn't get any students. KStars is an open source application and I hope the community would step in to improve these issues for all. We recently had a small patch from a new developer (Mr. Hy) to improve the speed of the FITS statistics by an order of magnitude, so he is off to a great start!

I just took a quick look and fixed the issue in the driver, so if you're using nightly it would be in tomorrow's build.. or you can compile from source.

Jasem Mutlaq replied to the topic 'Shoestring Astronomy focuser problem with KStars 3.3.3' in the forum. 2 days ago

It is already included in the latest nightly.. why do you think it's not?

Also, there was an issue with the ZWO in focus module that was also fixed few days ago.. maybe also compile indi-asi and check it out?
