Stellarium with PMC-Eight


David Pickett
 

I managed to get Stellarium to control my G11.

It needs POTH, as configured for ExploreStars, and StellariumScope (v.2016.12.26.exe) from http://welshdragoncomputing.ca/x/index.php/home/stellariumscope/download-stellariumscope

StellariumScope has to point to POTH.
You have to unpark the scope in POTH.
The default definitions of scopes defines three, which are actually just three functions of the same telescope, selected by hitting CTL + 1, 3 or 5:

1 Slew to selected object
3 Sync to selected object
5 Cancel

It all seems to work.

Correction: I meant "as configured for Cartes du Ciel."

In other words, if you get Cartes du Ciel working with POTH, just adding StellariumScope, as described, will be sufficient to make Stellarium work.
