jINDI is a project of cross platform observatory control software based on INDI protocol. It consists of
The current status is, that all INDI protocol modules and star catalog utilities (with TYCHO 2 catalog download, preprocessing and astrometric transformations with jNovas), name lookup with SIMBAD (with query response caching for field operation) are implemented and tested. We have a working telescope control GUI with star map for comfortable slewing and alignment and imager control GUI with plate solver based on TYCHO 2 catalog. Guider control GUI is not implemented.
To try jINDI you need Microsoft Windows operating system (developed and tested on Windows8 but should work with XP and later) or Apple MacOS X (developed and tested on 10.9 but should work with 10.7.3 and later) or any Linux distribution compatible with Oracle Java7 and INDI or ASCOM/wINDI with drivers for your devices.
This project is currently not actively developed, but if you want to try it, just let us know.
