Hello CN, I am an imager and I set up my mount on the deck and control the camera and guide camera from in the house but I am at the point now where I would like to slew and fine tune the position of the scope remotely from in the hose as well. I do my initial setup, focus, and alignment from the hand controller and have to go back and forth from house to scope to frame my targets which gets old fast and wastes a lot of time. I have read about software like ascom and other planetarium softwares but don't know what I would need to accomplish making my setup work. I use nebulosity for image acquisition and phd guiding. the mount is a G11 with Gemini ll goto. I thimk I would still have to do my initial alignments from the hc but that's ok. if I could slew to targets and fine tune the framing from in the house and then image that would be great. not looking for remote focusing just goto slewing and framing of target would be great. anyone with a G11/ Gemini II doing this I would like to hear how you do it. please be as specific as possible as this type of control is very new to me. thanks for any help you can provide.
