I just love SGP, really good package which has given me great results, vastly better than other packages I’ve tried. I’m a committed Mac user, and I have been using a very old - and now dying - Windows computer for my imaging. Now I know better than to ask the devs to do a Mac version of SGP, I know that’s been firmly declined in the past…
I would love to use a Mac to control my imaging, I have Parallels installed on my MacBookPro, ASCOM and all relevant drivers too, and they are showing up in SGP as they should. Problem is…my devices (cameras, focuser, etc) are not recognised by the Virtual Machine, I get messages saying Connection Error or Driver Not Installed etc. I understand there should be a quick fix here, and I’ve run through a few things recommended by Parallels which refer to connecting a printer or USB drive - something simple. But ASCOM is clearly a far more complex framework, I can find virtually nothing at all out there.
I know it can be done, there are a couple of high-profile YouTubers out there who do, but I’ve asked them, and they say they can’t remember how they got it to work, it was years ago. Something about an Intel Board Driver?? OK.
Any up-to-date help would be much appreciated. I can’t tell you how much I hate Windows, and the thought of buying another Windows laptop for this one, solitary purpose, fills me with sadness.
