I'm about to become a proud owner of a 10" RCX400.

Previously, I was using a CGE with nexremote (software based), thesky6, maxim, ccdautopilot and focusmax (with an st2000).

With the CGE, alignment took place in nexremote and all slew/goto commands where handled by nexremote.

Thesky and the rest of the telescope function where channeled via ASCOM's and nexremotes virtual serial port.

Has anyone got a similar configuration using the RCX400?

The way I understand it, TheSky6 will connect using the TeleAPI Meade driver, and everything else will connect via thesky controlled telescope.

I'm a bit of a loss as to who maintains alignment parameters and how the polar alignment routine takes place.
