When you speak of its "advanced controls", does that include some simple arrow keys that you can press to slew the scope in whatever direction you want?

I previously bought Starry Night Pro version 4.52 after reading about its "advanced telescope controls" and was astonished to find that I could not even press some arrow keys to center my target in the field of view (unless I was using a Mac computer). Hopefully Windows users can now slew their scopes with arrow keys via the version 6.0 you are mentioning. If so, it will be an awesome program because the rest of Starry Night Pro's features are "outta this world". (Just trying to be punnie )

Thanks for the discount code. I've been wanting to try out some software, but didn't want to invest a few hundred in something that may not pan out. At least $99 is as bad as a few hundred if I don't like it. I don't think I'll be disappointed as Starry Night was on my short list.

You didn't look hard enough. When setting the scope up in ASCOM tick "show hand control," and you will indeed get direction buttons...

Unfortunately the older lx200 classic's Ascom driver doesn't have that capability. But thanks for the advice anyway

Adam tried new purchase but there is nowhere to enter this code in.

Edit: ignore that found it, right at the last step before putting in card details.
