I’m looking for someone who is using The SkyX along with SGP and an
AP mount. I’ve seen what seems to be conflicting info between SB,
ASCOM and AP’s driver web pages. I hope to find someone who has it
working and bypass all the grief as my computer knowledge only
causes me to chase in ever larger circles.
Mainly I intend to use TSX for slewing and syncing the mount before
I start a target in SGP. I have downloaded and installed the “ASCOM
2X adapter” from SB. So I thought I should choose “ASCOM telescope
driver for TheSky” in the SGP chooser and my AP mount in TSX. When
I do that TSX connects, but SGP gives an error something like
"failed to connect to The ASCOM driver for TheSky." Even if I don’t
connect to TSX I still get the error on SGP.
Also I ran accross this post on SB “This driver[2X] when used with
SGP aborts meridian flips when SGP has centering enabled. Chris R
and The SGP team are looking into it. …driver is fine… if
recentering is disabled.” Anyone familiar with this? I believe
this was pertaining to a Paramount mount.
Any other tips/suggestions about using TSX w/SGP would surely be
Here’s my setup:
I’ll likely post this on the AP Yahoo group too.
