Earlier this week, we released version It is presently designated as public beta since we would like to invite more users to give the new camera options and plate solving choices a workout. The remainder of the program is solid.


Many people have asked for the additional camera plate solving options. We thank Ray for adding this capability.

Here is a summary of the new key features of this version.  

  • APCC - Define two Virtual Port for the ASCOM driver to accommodate programs that are run as administrator and those that are not. This should alleviate some of the recent issues on this group that related to the administrator setting.
  • APCC - Added COM port fallback to ethernet/wi-fi connection. You can now use any one of the connection options as a backup of your major connection.
  • APCC - Added "Pier Flip" button to "Move Scope" and "Meridian Delay" group boxes.
  • APCC Pro - New camera options: Sequence Generator Pro, ASCOM camera and SkyX Image Linking camera Add-on (APPM)
  • APCC Pro - New plate solving choices:Sequence Generator Pro (tested with PlateSolveX), SkyX Plate Solving (APPM)
  • APCC Pro - Increased range of allowable barometric pressure from 800-1100 to 500-1300.
  • Bug fixes
  • Refer to the Version History for complete information.
