Full automation is hard specially if everything is remote. Powering up all the devices can be nasty and difficult at times specially if one of the device is just consuming energy and not in use. So I started a new project, an Switch that allows me to power on or off a device that is connected to it. The control can happen on the device itself meaning that I can power on or off a device by pushing a button and should also be controllable in a computer. Same with my EQFocuser, as it can be controlled manually or automatically, the same thing is true on my EQSwitch.
Here’s a little video of what I have so far. The sources for the ASCOM Drivers and arduino code are here https://github.com/EverettQuebral/EQSwitch
