Not that I'm aware of... but the text file delimiter in BYE is easy to configure so as long you you can reliably output the data into a text file it would work without issues.  BYE doesn't care where the data is coming from.

Guess I have something to play with, the Arduino kit I have has a DT11 which is a temp and humidity sensor and the base code.  Just have to code it to save as a text file in the format that BYE can read.

I'll post when I get it working.

tbryant2k15,

You might want to contact Robert Brown down in NZ (https://sourceforge.net/u/brownrb/profile/)  He has quite a few Arduino projects for Astronomy.  I've already built one and am working on a couple more.  A weather station would be pretty simple (for him, not me) I would think since he already has much of the code.  You might even convince him to collaborate with you.  I've emailed him a couple of times and he was very responsive to my questions (sort of like Guylain). 

I have used Robert's focuser project with BYE (via ASCOM).  Works great.

I got the Arduino part going reporting the temp and humidity.  But there's really no way to make the Arduino make a text file itself without using another piece of software that reads the serial port (a terminal program).  And itself makes the continuing text file.  I got that all working, but just needing to get the format right for BYE to read it.  I have the file location and everything set in the Weather Center settings.  I have it outputting xx.x,xx.x (temp,humidity). Also tried it with a space instead of the comma.  But no luck as of yet.

And thanks for the link, the Arduino SQM is a project I would like to do.
