Dean, I ran my AP900GTO CP2 with TSX and used the ASCOM v2 driver per advice from the gang at AP. I had NO problem using Pulseguide to guide without a cable. It all worked very well.

I have been using the APV2 driver for a while with Sky6 and am now moving over SkyX. Have had lots of star fade issues with Maxim and my lodestar so will try the camera add on. I use CCD Auto Pilot for my imaging sessions.
My question is, what am I gaining by using the ascom AP driver vs the SkyX driver? I am just wanting to uncomplicated things and if I can get X to give me all I need to run the mount it should do that. I don’t use any of the APV2 features anyways since I am automated so again not sure what it does for me more than X? Or am I but just not aware of it? I still may need it to connect to Pempro although not sure.
I think the main reason I wanted to use it originally was to guide thru the mount and not use a guide cable. Not sure if I could still do that with SkyX and pulse guide but going back to a guide cable would be ok if I need to.
I understand if I ever go with APCC I need it but have no plans at the moment.
Thanks for any comments, or suggestions on switching to SkyX from Sky6.
