INDIGO to ASCOM bridges (OBSOLETE, use INDIGO Alpaca Agent)

INDIGO to ASCOM bridges are replaced by the INDIGO Alpaca Agent (indigo_alpaca_agent, README is here). It requires Ascom Remote (Alpaca) to be istalled on the Windows host. It supports almost all ASCOM hardware classes with the exception of ObservingConditions and SafetyMonitors, which can not be easily mapped to the existing INDIGO devce classes.

If you still want to install ASCOM drivers for INDIGO server on Windows computer, download and install the following packages:


Make sure that you have all prerequisites installed. On Ubuntu / Debian / Raspian use:

$ sudo apt-get install build-essential autoconf autotools-dev libtool cmake libudev-dev libavahi-compat-libdnssd-dev libusb-1.0-0-dev fxload libcurl4-gnutls-dev libgphoto2-dev libz-dev git curl

It is advised to remove libraw1394-dev as the build may fail if it is installed

$ sudo apt-get remove libraw1394-dev

On macOS install XCode and download and build autoconf, automake and libtool (use tools/ script).

If you're ready, get the code and built it

$ git clone

$ cd indigo

$ make all

$ build/bin/indigo_server indigo_ccd_asi [other drivers]

and connect from INDIGO Control Panel, any INDI client or WEB browser to port 7624...
