using Stellarium to remotely steer and Orion XX12g new
      #6061703 - 09/03/13 09:25 PM

I use stellarium to steer myscope remotely, however any ideas on how to nudge the scope for fine adjustments for pointing (while remotely using video camera)? The Ascom drivers setup is all working fine. I've tried getting the included Orion special edition of Starry nights to connect to the scope, but never been able to connect to it to use the control pad to nudge the scope. Both Orion and Starrynight tech support have not been able to fix the problem, ... Orion need to write drivers for their Az mount I guess...
Alternatively, any suggestions on other software that would allow me to nudge the scope?

I believe you posted this elsewhere as well, but I will repeat my advice: The place to start is with your ASCOM driver. Many will allow you to display an onscreen "hand control."
