TheSkyX Pro X2 Camera PlugIns

These PlugIns are multi platform : macOS, Windows, Linux (Ubuntu) and Raspberry PI.

As it's hard to get access to the real hardware, I'll give priority to whichever vendor is willing to help. If you own a filter wheel and want macOS or Linux support for TheSkyX Pro, let me know which one. If I can get the protocol documentation, I will try to write a X2 PlugIn for it.

Current PlugIns :

If you want to support the development, you can donate or lend hardware, or donate via PayPal so that I can acquire the hardware myself:
