I haven't tried it out yet, but I did see that there was mention of some NexDome files on the list of updates when I ran the update on INDI on my Linux computer.
I'm hoping to set up Stellarmate OS on my Raspberry Pi and eventually get it all working. I'd give it a try, but I wonder what firmware (and were I can find it) is needed for the NexDome Arduino computers in the dome? I currently have the ASCOM comapatible firmware installed (2.21 if I remember the version correctly) and running a Windows 7 machine in my observatory.

What is there that I need to do to give INDI/KStars a try again? I know the INDI side of things isn't as far along as ASCOM, but just trying to keep up with changes.



Hi Guys,

I have a question about the status communication within the indi_script_dome driver. There are a few python schripts available. Those are doing basically nothing in regard to move the roof but obviously the communicating a current status of the roof like  "park.py":

 > cat park.py  
# Park script for INDI Dome Scripting Gateway
# Arguments: none
# Exit code: 0 for success, 1 for failure

import sys

coordinates = open('/tmp/indi-status', 'w')
coordinates.write('1 0 0')


But I don't understand the meaning of the functions i.e. coordinates(). Can someone give a hint please?
