I know this is an old thread but did this ever get resolved? I want to use my GH5s and it doesn't seem to be supported by Ekos.

Ah, wasn't aware of that - makes sense. Anyone wanna work together or seeing if we can get the GH5s working in gphoto? I have a coding background and would be happy to use my camera for testing/development.

Chiming in to attempt to learn/understand a bit better. I'm both a Nikon full frame and Panasonic owner. I have both a GH4 and GH5s. I've been experimenting with the GH4 directly attached to to a Pi running ekos using gphoto. Much of this works on the GH4 but all that functions on the GH5s is firing the shutter which I assume is a fairly generic bit of functionality. I see there has been some development work on getting the Panasonic cameras functioning over wifi which is where I'm a bit confused. Why wifi? Isn't it much more straightforward to connect the cameras via USB as apparently. Is there something specific about the functionality of the GH5s that prevents it being supported via USB in gphoto? Could someone possibly clear up my confusion here and set me straight? I'd really like to use my M4/3 cameras to get a little extra focal length on my widefield scopes. The Nikon full frames are great but I'd just like the extra flexibility of using both.
