INDIGO Dashboard

INDIGO Dashboard is a versatile tool for a low level control of embedded or remote INDIGO Servers. It combines the server itself, the control panel and the set of up to eight configurable dashboard workspaces. Each of them can contain any number of property widgets pinned from the control panel and arranged according your need.

It can control many devices supported by built-in INDIGO drivers. Out-of-the-box it contains INDIGO drivers for the following devices:

  • CCD, focuser, wheel, rotator, mount, gps and dome simulator drivers,
  • Atik CCD and wheel drivers,
  • ZWO ASI CCD, wheel, focuser and guider drivers (doesn't work with non-S ASI120MM/MC),
