François Meyer created a new topic ' Skywatcher protocol' in the forum. 6 years ago

Hi,

I want to make my mount controller skywatcher-compatible. I am currently rewriting the controller firmware and have some questions regarding some details of the skywatcher protocol ; variable names are those of indi-eqmod/skywatcher.[h|cpp].

InquireGridPerRevolution requests number of microsteps required for a full 360° revolution (correct me if wrong) ;
Following 2 are less clear to me :
What does InquireTimerInterruptFreq expect in return and what is the unit ?
What does InquireHighSpeedRatio expect in return and what is the unit ?

Do periods (in minperiod, maxperiod, setspeed...) refer to the delay between successive microsteps sent to the motor ? What is the unit ?

Thank you in advance,
best
