Thank you Marco,

Your work is more than "in progress". So it will be a really good starting point. I will look at it deeply.
I will try to make something with Node.js.

Do you have seen this thread ? I think that Kaczorek had the same problem as you have.
I'm pretty sure that Orion Nautilus and Brightstar Quantum filter wheels are the same product.

Hello,
Did you try the INDI driver for Atik filter wheels ? It could be interstereting to test it with your Nautilus one.
If I remember, the Nautilus filter wheel was made by a portuguese company named Brightstar (and then named Nautilus by Orion Telescopes & Binoculars). And they really look like Atik's filter wheels too. So they could be managed by the same drivers.

Hello
I think that it is possible to use PHP. However, you have to use sockets to speak with the Indi Server ; but be careful beacause all PHP servers don't allow that. Look at php.net and sockets functions to get more informations. Look at asynchronous PHP options too ; this is really important to avoid some blocking issues when you will call with the INDI Server. I think this is not the best way. A better solution should be using Node.js (or Python, like Indi Lite) on the backend.

I'm really interested in Marco's job on Indi Lite. I would like to use a web based GUI (made with React, for example) but with an asynchronous server written in Node.js.
Where is it possible to find your REST API ?

Hi Jasem,

The problem is solved.
I have just reinstall KStars directly from the Ubuntu repository (apt-get install kstars) instead of kstars-bleeding. It installs kstars and astrometry.net + kstars-data dependancies. The version is 2.3.0 but Ekos and Indi are here now.

Hello all and happy new year !

I have tried to install Indi/Ekos/KStars on KUbuntu 15.10 in a Panasonic Toughbook CF-W7 laptop.
I have used the recommended method in the Indi website : indi-full + kstars-bleeding. All works fine BUT Ekos doesn't appear in KStars !
So, I thought that have made a mistake. I have uninstalled indi-full and kstars-bleeding packages and tried to compile all softwares by myself using the howto in the forum (Indi server and indi 3rd party drivers, Astrometry.net and finally KStars). Ekos is still missing in my KStars. I don't have Ekos nor Indi in the Configuration menu.
What is wrong ?
Indiserver seems to work (the process is running and listens to the port 7624). Astrometry.net is installed, according to their installation guide. But, during the KStars compilation, the installation procedure shows that it doesn't find Indi and Astrometry.net. This is really strange.

I have planned to use KStars to remotely manage my telescope equipped with a BeagleBone Black card where Indiserver will be embedded.
I'm very interested to use Indi and KStars for remote spectroscopy purposes. My goal is to use Indi capabilities via a web interface. And I'm very interested to participate to the Indi/Ekos adventure. I'm working as webmaster in the most important astronomy store in France. I can try many kind of astronomy equipment we have in the store. This is really cool :o)

Thank you for your help
Vincent
