ASCOM TELESCOPE DRIVER FOR EQUATORIAL MOUNTS WITH 8407 HAND CONTROLLER
This new driver was developed for the iOptron equatorial mounts that are using the telescope RS-232 command language v1.4 (e.g. v8407 hand controllers), in particular iEQ45, iEQ30, ZEQ25 and SmartEQ. The iEQ45_8407 driver presented on this page is implemented complying to the ASCOM telescope V3 Standard. The driver is free, developed and tested using a iOptron iEQ45 GTN equatorial mount. Developed by Andrea Conci (cionki), if you encounter bugs/problems you can write and email to info[at]eitsa.it please put “iOptron ASCOM driver” in the subject (if I can I will try to solve them quickly).
