To use the adapter on a PC, you need to install the ASCOM platform http://www.ascom-standards.org
and ASCOM driver for azimuth mounts: https://sourceforge....s/driverazgoto/
To control the mount from the PC, you need to install a TCP-COM bridge.

There is no need to use a manual SynTrek or SynScan controller.

3. Click on "Accept Changes". In the "Mount" line, a mount type should appear (for example, Dob Goto or other type of azimuth mount)
with which the connection is established. If the line shows the wrong mount with which the connection is established,
you can select it manually from the drop-down menu by clicking on this line.
Also clicking on this line you can specify the specific mount with which the connection is established.
For example, Virtuoso if you have Sky-Watcher Virtuoso or ORION StarBlast AutoTracker.
Now you can control the mount from the Virtuoso application. Next, you need to make a binding of 2 stars.
To do this:
1. Click the "Tracking" button and the line "Aligned".
2.Choose the first star and press and press "Accept".
3. Press the "Aligned" line again.
4. Select the second star and press and press "Accept".
After aligning the telescope, you can use the SkySafari planetarium.
