Can Nexremote be used to autoguide the CGEM mount?

Thanks,

Richard

Not QUITE sure what you are asking. NexRemote is not an autoguiding program; it takes the place of the hand control. Certainly you can autoguide with it just as you can with a "real" hand control. You will run your autoguide program along with NexRemote and use its "virtual port" option.

Thanks. I'm in the process of getting my new CGEM to autoguide. Someone commented that they can get several minutes of autoguiding per exposure with round stars using an 8 inch scope.

Cool, but as Uncle Rod says, Nexremote is not an autoguiding program. Look at PHD Guiding, very efficient, and free!!
