Looks like an excellent software. I have some specific questions:

1. Is it possible to integrate with Cartes du Ciel not just the Sky for mount control

2. Can I schedule to park the mount at certain time unattended, and turn off cooler on the camera

Thanks! Alex

Excellent, thank you Laurent. I found the parking option too.

I am guiding with SBIG AO-8 and I am still a bit confused about the sequence of operation with MaxPilote:

I usually setup everything in Maxim Dl (guider-mount calibration and mirror of AO-8 calibration), when do I connect to MaxPilote before or after I start guiding the star?

Also when I finish the session and select "close all soft" option does it turn off the cooler of my cam? if not can this option be selected?

thank you, Alex

For AO, the miror calibration can not be manage my external software, so you just have to do this one time, after if you don't change optic , you don't have do it.

MaxPilote automatique ask mout calibration and start autoguide session. Between each exposure, put the start in center with ST4 port and home the AO miror.

For you ccd, yes you have option, to start the cooler on begin, and stop on end :
