ASCOM.DeviceInterface Namespace


This namespace contains master device interface definitions and is considered authoritative within the ASCOM community.

  Interface Description
Public interface IAxisRates
A collection of rates at which the telescope may be moved about the specified axis by the MoveAxis(TelescopeAxes, Double) method. This is only used if the telescope interface version is 2 or 3
Public interface ICameraV2
Defines the ICamera Interface
Public interface IDomeV2
Defines the IDome Interface
Public interface IFilterWheelV2
Defines the IFilterWheel Interface
Public interface IFocuserV2
Provides universal access to Focuser drivers
Public interface IObservingConditions
Defines the IObservingConditions Interface. This interface provides a limited set of values that are useful for astronomical purposes for things such as determining if it is safe to open or operate the observing system, for recording astronomical data or determining refraction corrections.
Public interface IRate
Describes a range of rates supported by the MoveAxis(TelescopeAxes, Double) method (degrees/per second) These are contained within an IAxisRates collection and serve to describe one or more supported ranges of rates of motion about a mechanical axis. It is possible that the Maximum and Minimum properties will be equal. In this case, the IRate object expresses a single discrete rate. Both the Minimum and Maximum properties are always expressed in units of degrees per second. This is only using for Telescope InterfaceVersions 2 and 3
Public interface IRotatorV2
Defines the IRotator Interface
Public interface ISafetyMonitor
Defines the ISafetyMonitor Interface
Public interface ISwitchV2
Defines the ISwitchV2 Interface
Public interface ITelescopeV3
Defines the ITelescope Interface
Public interface ITrackingRates
Returns a collection of supported DriveRate values that describe the permissible values of the TrackingRate property for this telescope type.
Public interface IVideo
Defines the IVideo Interface.
Public interface IVideoFrame
Defines the IVideoFrame Interface.
  Enumeration Description
Public enumeration AlignmentModes
The alignment mode of the mount.
Public enumeration CameraStates
ASCOM Camera status values.
Public enumeration DriveRates
Well-known telescope tracking rates.
Public enumeration EquatorialCoordinateType
Equatorial coordinate systems used by telescopes. Only used with telescope interface versions 2 and 3
Public enumeration GuideDirections
The direction in which the guide-rate motion is to be made.
Public enumeration PierSide
The pointing state of the mount
Public enumeration SensorType
Sensor type, identifies the type of colour sensor V2 cameras only
Public enumeration ShutterState
ASCOM Dome ShutterState status values.
Public enumeration TelescopeAxes
The telescope axes Only used with if the telescope interface version is 2 or 3
Public enumeration VideoCameraFrameRate
ASCOM Video Camera supported frame rates.
Public enumeration VideoCameraState
ASCOM Video Camera status values.
