Drivers for the new ALPACA platform

Post by Fivel » Fri Mar 01, 2019 8:39 pm

To the ZWO software team, here is my question.
Are you working on camera (and filter wheel) drivers for the new platform (ALPACA) that will replace ASCOM? According to tech support at my focuser company (Optec), that platform should be ready this year.
Here is a link to the ASCOM/ALPACA webpage.
https://ascom-standards.org/Developer/Alpaca.htm
It will be great to have just one open source, cross platform system.
Now it is up to the equipment and astronomy app developers, to provide the drivers, and have them integrated into the astro apps.
