Thanks Bob and Wes. Big 10-4 on the no wifi.
I guess I could use the wifi to connect to my home network and remotely control the PC from inside so that's a plus.
I'm going to do the same and use a powered USB 3.0 hub even though everything is usb 2.0
I forgot that stellarium probably needs wifi to sync to my location and time.
Wes, I actually have but not on this mount yet. I was using a manual altaz mount and did M42 this past winter. I achieved focus by using the stars around the object and it worked great.
I dont have a bahnitov mask or anything else at this time so I'm probably going to do the same as I did before.
Slew to the object, find a star or 2 to focus on and go from there. Downside of using a dslr I guess. I've seen alot of people rotate the scope so the camera is attached underneath at the 6 o clock position but I havent tried that either.
