I use it to image on scopes in Australia from the US.

Most any of the computerized goto mounts can be controlled... I have 3 such systems, two run via USB interface and one that is Ethernet TCPIP controlled...
You need to either describe the gear you have or plan to get and then specific questions about a remote control application can be addressed... Its really all about the mount...

I'm also retired from a long career in oceanographic instrumentation, and now retired, I enjoy working with telescope/mount autoguiding systems and remote control.
Any time you wish to discuss a plan or concept, I would take pleasure in discussing same with you...
Best regards and clear skies,

Is it at all possible to buy software to remotely control a telescope. And if so can you program the Coodinates to point the scope. And if it is possible how far away can you be. Thanks All and Clear Skies Mike. Sorry One People * One Sky last thing, this can be done with no cables and operated fron an laptop or tablet. Slainte
What kind of telescope/ mount do you have?

I have a Windows Vista laptop outside, running Stellarium Scope, Stellarium, PhD, and Sequence Generator Pro, connected to an SBIG ST-8300M, Orion ED80T, and Orion Sirius mount with ASCOM.
I just don't want to keep going outside to check periodically as it gets colder outside, but I don't know if I can connect the iMac to the Windows for remote control.
