XmTel uses the Instrument Neutral Device Interface (INDI) and is compatible with Clear Sky Institute's XEphem.
XmCCD is a similar INDI package for controlling Apogee and Santa Barbara Instrument Group (SBIG) scientific CCD cameras.
During the installation you will have to select which telescope you will use before building the binaries. The Motif development libraries are needed to build XmTel. If you can compile XEphem then you should have the tools to compile XmTel. There is limited program installation and usage documentation in the package. A detailed user manual will be available soon.
