Re: ETA for integrated COM port support in ASCOM driver?
Hi Joel,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
ASCOM is a Windows-only platform component so you will need a Windows computer to initialize the mount via the ASCOM driver.
What you probably heard was that someone was going to make a cross-platform (iOS, Android, Windows phone) phone/tablet application that simply initializes the mount.
I have signed up to do that (free) application on my own, however I would like to finish PEMPro V3 before working on this free app. Unfortunately, I can't say for sure that the initialization app will be ready by the fall. Maybe the Sky safari developers or someone else will produce a solution by then.
