I've been playing around with getting INDI working with SGP (currently have cameras and telescopes working.) But I'm wondering how everyone would actually use it on their machines...if they feel they would use INDI. There are essentially 2 use cases:
- Connect to a remote INDI server
- Have a local INDI server running on the same machine that is running SGP.
It seems that 1 has a certain "cool" factor to it and I know a lot of you techies would probably play around with this, but it seems that it also reduces the dependability of your setup.
2 is almost certainly more stable as you don't have to worry about wifi/ethernet connectivity, but then I wonder "what's the point and why wouldn't you use ASCOM here?"
Anyways, just wondering how you all might use INDI and what you would expect for a SGP/INDI implementation. Is this just neat? Does it provide you some additional convenience? Does it somehow give you more options?
I do want to be clear that INDI is something I plan on finishing up support for. I plan on completing the "big 4" (Camera, Telescope, Filter Wheel, Focusers) and will likely release it as a beta in a couple of weeks/months depending on my schedule.
Also I would be interested to hear if anyone is currently using INDI already with another imaging platform in earnest.
