AP driver and ASCOM

Mike Shade

Question...when upgrading the ASCOM version from 6.0 which I currently have to 6.3 which is I believe the latest version, is that a "clean" upgrade?  What I mean is will it install over the existing installation, keeping settings and such...and keep all of the same drivers, or will I also have to reinstall all the other drivers...for The Sky, Optec focuser/rotator...and so on?


Another question...for the latest V2 driver, does one need to upgrade ASCOM at all?  Sometimes upgrades can have unintended consequences...

Vega, the brightest one, is now dropping towards the west.  Can it be half

a year since I watched her April rising in the east?  Low in the southwest
