Re: One beginner's guide to getting EXOS2/PMC8 fully operational with ASCOM, Stellarium, SharpCap, ASPS, and ASCOMPAD


Hi Wes, 
Making progress, but few questions:
Step 7 in the linked document, when I try to connect the scope through Stellarium via the Telescope control plugin, I just get a “Connecting” status. Is there something I need to do on Poth. Poth Hub is running and I can manually slew the mount using the on-screen  buttons.

Also, do I need ASCOMPAD without a game controller ?

Mount: EXOS2-GT, Orion SkyView EQ
Scope: ESED80-FCD100, Orion 8” Newt
Guide system: Starfield 50mm, Altair GPCAM2 130M
DSLR: Canon 6D, T3i
Software: ExploreStars W10, iOS; Sharpcap, Altair ImageCapture, PMC 8 Manager, Stellarium 
Location: Sierra Foothills, CA
