Rather not open my system up, but do you have to use PhD? If so, I am stuck because the drivers for my scope are not going to work with PhD. They do work with Maxim DL.

Yes, I can guide in Maxim (can do 99% there) but not happy with the SkyView, so trying to integrate CdC, as well as run some scripts. I like the way the MaxPilote control panel looks.

I am new to this with a new camera and luckily looks like I will have clear skys tonight to test all this in reality.

Jerry,
I guess what I'm saying is that MaxPilote can use MaximDL for guiding.

I am at the office and playing around with the simulator. Not very easy to test it. It does not seem to take the target off CdC. Will have to try it on the real scope tonight. Looks like we will have clear skys.

Cheers

Well, I could not seem to make it work either at the scope or the simulator. I assume this must be a simple problem...

1. but I start CdC and then MaxPilot.
2. It starts up Maxim DL
3. Green connect lights next to the Imager and SkyMap.
4. BUT, I cannot get it to slew to targe (M81 say).
5. Here is a screenshot with the log included

"<< skymap" is to take Cdc cursor position

to take "NGC235" info you need to click ">>" and not "<< skymap"

OK, I have it now in the simulator .

1. I have to do a Find in CdC and that put the cursor over the object/target.

2. Then use the "<<" button to import the setings into MaxPilote.

3. Then hit the GoTo button next to the "<<" button.

Just to confirm, you are referring to PinPoint of Maxim DL. I have the Pro version of Maxim DL, which is supposed to include a version of PinPoint. I have never used PinPoint.

Je crois qu'on arrivera!

Merci, si j'ai bien compris, le Pinpoint Pro march mieux avec MaxPilot. Vous pouvez obtenir directement le RA et DEC. J'ai essaye d'utilized la version DL et il ma demander d'obtenir un "permit"....

Thanks, if I understand well, Pinpoint Pro works better with MaxPilot. I tried to use the DL version and I was asked for a license...

BTW, I have been going over the documentation in detail. If you want me to correct/"perfectionner" your English, send me a private mail and I could help. My wife if complete bilingual and it is good practice.
