Satellite/Celestial body tracking

Is it possible to use an AzEl feed (e.g. gPredict) to feed the antenna tracker to track satellites or celestial bodies rather than drones?

I am not the pro-user but in theory you could feed the AzEL data into a lua script running on the flightcontroller, that is doing the stuff

and again in theory it could also work by publishing the TLE data of (any) satellite with the same behaviour

This sounds fun, would be good to add support. I have no idea about such things tho. Is there any standard protocol we could use to receive the data we need?


thanks for your interest, peter

maybe Supported Rotators · Hamlib/Hamlib Wiki · GitHub could help you with the “Easycomm I and II protocols”

TLE is another topic then
