Nexremote Q......Do I have to use it......
      #5644962 - 01/26/13 07:25 PM

As I alluded to, If I want to use a planetarium program, or Astroplanner, do I have to use the Celestron Nexremote program also?

Thanks!

Andy

Shouldn't software have to connect to Nexremote's virtual com port to be able to control Celestron mounts?

No, The software can connect to the actual com port bypassing nexremote if your connected to the hand controller..

Nexremotte pretty much replaces the hand controller where you don't have to use the HC.. Nexremote also works with the PC port on the mount.
