I can connect with APCC to the mount with the 15 ft serial cable which came with the mount, using Serial Port 3. I think this part is working because I am able to control the mount with APCC, driving it from point to point works, and I can park it.
The problem occurs when I try to connect to the mount in TheSky.
I follow the instructions in the text box pop up during the TeleAPI driver installation. When I get to step 6: “Again go to Mount Settings and this time choose Settings. This time the ASCOM telescope chooser will appear.” When I do this I get the pop up “A necessary driver was not found. Error =217.” When I went to the ASCOM home page to download the TeleAPI drive, it says do not use with TheSky X. It was TeleAPI v5.04 specified in the AP ASCOM instructions, but I wonder if that could be a problem?
