I guess you'll just have to look in the FITS header then, which presumably you're doing anyway in order to decode the image.

I think when you receive the BLOB (the image) from INDI, one of the fields is "format". So you may have to wait until you actually receive an image before deciding what type it is.

Also, one of the standard INDI properties is CCD_CFA, which has information needed for debayering (if appropriate).

Yeah as you can see in my 3D model I'm using a Waveshare stepper motor HAT, using the driver I wrote. The hardware pinouts are compatible with the Raspberry Pi 40-pin header, even though addressing the GPIOs are different (different numbering scheme).

So far the only GPIOs I've used are the ones used by the Waveshare HAT for the two motors, in digital output mode.

On the Rock Pi (which also has a compatible 40-pin header, but also with different numbering scheme), I had to disable an i2s kernel module, because it was conflicting with the GPIO. I've had no such problems on my ODroid N2+ though.

Oh, one thing you can try while waiting for a response from Jasem, is to try the nightly builds instead of the stable build. This will have the latest drivers, and might work better.

Since you purchased Stellarmate, open a support ticket at www.stellarmate.com/support.html

Jasem is really good at getting back to people and helping them out.

In the SlewTo and AbsSlewTo methods, you can see it checks to see how far away the target is from the current position. If it's beyond a certain threshold, it uses fast mode, otherwise slow mode. You can try skipping the test and just always using slow mode.

Something like changing this:

    if (deltaraencoder > static_cast<int32_t>(lowspeedmargin))
        useHighSpeed = true;
    else
        useHighSpeed = false;

to this:
    useHighSpeed = false;

There are similar checks for RA and Dec. And the change would need to be made in AbsSlewTo and SlewTo methods.

I'd do it myself, but it's still raining here, so I don't dare take the cover off of my mount to test it out. :D

I've had this occasionally happen. I haven't figured out why. But the solution is pretty easy. Go to the mounts tab, click the "clear model" button, then try again. After I do that, it works normally.

Another option is to purchase a copy of Stellarmate OS, which is updated more often than Astroberry.

If you don't want to wait for Radek to update Astroberry with the latest INDI, you can download and build INDI yourself. It isn't difficult (but can be intimidating if you've never done it before).

The firmware has "fast goto" and "slow goto". Maybe try forcing it to always use slow goto. Maybe then it will honor the speed setting. Even if it doesn't honor the speed setting, it should move nice and slow :D

Hmm, sounds like that's confirmation that the speed that is set is ignored. Bummer. I was hoping that would work.
