I am running EKOS on my Mac in my home.
It connects to INDI Webmanager on a Stellarmate Pi4 in my observatory, and images are saved directly to a USB drive in the observatory connected to that Pi.

I turned on Summary Screen Preview in the EKOS settings - but no images display there.  
Is this because the images are not being saved on the computer that is running EKOS?

Any more progress on iPolar?

There is an issue that prevents the Mac from connecting well with the Esatto focuser.
I found that installing a CP210x driver fixes the issue.  There is a free download from Silcon labs.

CP210x VCP Mac OSX Driver

Jasem, I got it working!

I downloaded the CP210x Macintosh OS VCP Driver v6  (serial driver) and once installed, the Esatto connected in exactly the way it connects with Linux.
The driver is here:

CP210x VCP Mac OSX Driver

I now have all my devices connected via Mac OSX and functioning.

CEM120 EC2
ASI 1600Mm pro
ZWO Filter wheel
SX Loderstar X2
Esatto Focuser
Nexdome
AAG Cloudwatcxher NG

Rats. Ok, so I guess that driver should be pulled from the Mac version of INDI.
Had I known this earlier, I would have got the Moonlight motorized focuser instead.

Jasem, did any of this help?

Note this is only with the INDI driver on the Mac. If I use KStars (Mac OSX version 3.5.3, 4 or 5) and connect to the Stellarmate Pi's INDI Web Server, the focuser works fine. Only when I direct connect the Mac to the equipment does it fail.

Here's what Stellarmate does.  It has no trouble with property: SN. (in Green below).
There are other bugs, but the focuser works anyways (in red below).

Thanks Rob. I just downloaded it, and while the Nexdome is working fine, the Esatto Focuser has the exact same driver error as I mentioned before (seen here).
