Re: New Chat: 1100GTO and TheSky X #chat-notice




You will not use the TeleAPI driver, as it is for an outdated version of the Sky.  


Go to our Software Updates page and download:

  1. FTDI driver
  2. Java
  3. ASCOM Platform
  4. AP V2 ASCOM driver


Do the above before plugging in the CP4.    Call me with questions.

Do you get any kinds of errors when trying to connect with to the CP4? Are you sure you are connecting with the correct com port?

A new chat has been created:


I recently received an 1100GTO with AE,  and I am a new user.  I’m trying to figure out the best way to configure it for remote imaging, and would appreciate your help. 

Seems like you need a method to drive the scope to the desired target, then APCC Pro takes care of tracking with help from a guide scope for long exposures. 

Also, I’ve read on the forum that Roland uses TheSky X (I assume for target selection), and Maximum DL (I assume for camera , focusing, and guide scope control).  Did I read Roland’s post correctly?

I purchased TheSky X Pro, downloaded and installed the TeleAPI v5.04 driver, but have been unable to connect. Can anyone help with this issue.
