Quote:specifically software that you can use to control a nexstar telescope (CG-5 AS-GT mount) too poor to buy the wi-fi module for sky safari right now but that i know is one of the best and i love sky safari. i've made a serial cable for my mount and played around with celestron's software but am looking for something more graphical like sky safari, free is preferred right now but that does not mean it has to be. basically let me know what you all use on you're laptops for this use
