Does SkySafari for macOS support Indi Server Communications ?

Hi Team,

In a previous post, you mentionned SkySafari for Mac OsX does not support Indi server communication with mounts like Explorer Scientific PMC-8, but is it true for all mounts or not ? 

SkySafari for Mac OsX does not support indi server or not ?

Thanks,

Vincent

    Vincent,

    No, we do not support INDI.  I have looked into it several times but nothing has made it into production yet.

    Vincent,

    INDI is not directly supported by SS6 but the app KStars (https://edu.kde.org/kstars/#download - which is an integrated astronomy software) supports SkySafari !

    I use SkySafari each time I'm running KStars.

    I forgot to say that KStars is based on INDI

    Thanks you guys for you support and replies. 

    I did not mentionned yet but I use Kstars with INDI since several years !! It allows me to control all my equipment connected through INDI, by INDI Server. I spend more than 2 years to develop some code and link all that on Linux and OsX and even if Kstars works well, it is not a the same level at SS6. That's why i'd like to use SS6 but nevermind i will keep on Kstars.

    Just a question @Jean-Claude : For me Kstars and SS6 are the same tool, I mean planetarium. I don't understand why using Kstars and SS6 at the same time so ? Did I missed something ?

    Hi Vsincholle ,

    You can integrate SkySafari into KStars , use its beautiful interface instead of the more basic planeterium of KStars and - in the back scene - you will continue to use KStars / Ekos for your astrophotography.

    Here is where you can find the driver : https://indilib.org/devices/telescopes/skysafari.html

    ( I thank you to have contributed to the development of KStars, a beautiful piece of work !)
