Sorry, I probably wasn't clear about what I'd like to do. I'd like to have an automatic process that sends settings to my focuser in the boot process.

I was thinking about adding something in crontab, so when I boot the AstoBerry it will start the INDI server, then pass the settings with indi_setptop. My concern is if I add a crontab line running a script with the indi_setprop command and parameters and the INDI server has not started yet, then the settings will not apply ?

I guess I'm asking is there a way to boot up the AstroBerry server and after the INDI server is running, somehow automatically run something (a shell script?) that sends settings to a device?

Hope this is clear, sorry for the confusion.
Thank You.


What would be the best/easiest way to run indi_setprop to configure a device (a Moonlite focuser).?

When my Astroberry boots up I have the drivers to Start automatically. I would like to the drivers to load, then automatically run a script using indi_setprop to send specific config settings to the focuser (and other devices?).

Thank you!


What is the best way to upgrade INDI (1.8.1 to 1.8.2) that was compiled from source, running Raspian?

Simply download the new release and install as usual? (extract it to a new directory, compile, make install) ? Will this overwrite all the old stuff with the new stuff? Or is there some preparation needed before installing new?

Many thanks!


Basil Rowe created a new topic ' PEC control for Celestron Nexstar' in the forum. 4 years ago

It would be a big help if PEC control was available with INDI. Newer versions of Nexstar have this available, here:

Right now the only reason I need pick up the hand controller is to turn on PEC playback. This setting is not remembered after hibernating or turning off the mount. Having the ability to turn on PEC playback would make remote operation complete (for me and probably most others).

I'd be happy to do testing with my CGE-Pro mount.
Many thanks in advance.
