    Default Stellarium Scope, Stellarium and Telescope Control



    The night I got sprayed with water from my hose I actually installed and used Stellarium Scope, Stellarium for Telescope Control

    Stellarium Scope from here:
    http://www.bytearts.com/stellarium/

    Stellarium from here:
    http://www.stellarium.org/

    And you will still need ASCOM telescope drivers for your mount:
    http://ascom-standards.org/

    I thought it was not as user friendly as Starry Night/EQMOD nor as powerful for astrophotography, but was nice in other ways including the fact that it was free and was great for non-astrophotographers.

    I thought it was easy to setup, you can setup a small window for Stellarium and you can do some amazing things like setup a panoroma of your location in Stellarium.

    Only issue for me was right clicking on an object you could not move to it. HELP topics helped, as I found that you needed to click on CNTRL + a number to move the scope to the selected object. For free, it is a good starting point for telescope control.

    Gus,

    StellariumScope will also setup "sync" and "stop" controls for the mount.
