Quote: I assume the G2 and HC should be connected and powered up with my Pyramid power supply, but need not be connected the G11 motors.
Quote:Has anyone tried connecting the G2 unit to a wireless router then connecting a laptop to the router's wireless and controlling the Gemini that way? Wonder if that would work for ASCOM and TheSky as well...
Quote:Better of all you can do the normal connection between telescope and PC, then control it from other PC using Ultra VNC, this is progra do remote pc program, you can transfer files, share screen etc and is free. Both PC need to be connected to the same network.
Quote:Being a Windows person, the first thing I think of when it comes to remotely controlling a computer is Remote Desktop. Is there any particular reason people choose VNC over RDP?
