I'm going to go out on a limb here and say no. Since FocusMax doesn't support Nebulosity, I think it is safe to say that PAM doesn't either. In my opinion there are better options out there now, especially considering that PAM used J2000 coordinates the last time I checked.

The reason I ask is that I can't get MaximDLv5 to work with my QHY8 Pro. It doesn't appear in the camera list and when I tried ASCOM, it couldn't find the camera. The camera works fine with Nebulosity, however. Hence, the reason that I was hoping that PAM and Nebulosity worked together.
