Are there any Alpaca drivers for mounts, cameras, filter wheels, focusers that run under Linux x86 or ARM (Raspberry Pi, etc.), so that the hardware could be connected to a Linux computer at the mount and controlled remotely from a Windows application having an Ascom interface? The astronomy-standards.org Downloads page lists [Windows] Ascom drivers for the various classes of astronomy devices; is there a similar listing anywhere of Alpaca drivers?

There are some things available and coming from Optec, and there are a few other projects in progress. It’s a pretty new technology. It took ASCOM/COM several years to even begin to take hold (back in the early 2000s). I expect new hardware with on-board WiFi to be leading this.
