Hi Guys,
I have a CubePro and I'm told it's ascom compliant. I have TheSkyX-SA software which can drive the iOptron scope as it's in the mount pull-down menu. Will TSX-SA drive the Cube to track satellites, or, is there another software that will even if it's leapfrogging?
Thanks, Steven

Is there a way for this mount to emulate an LX200? If so then there is some good satellite tracking software available.

what tracking software would you suggest if it can emulate an LX200? I'll ask iOptron about that.

Thanks, Steven

This is the reference standard satellite tracker by which others are judged:

It works beautifully if you have an LX200 interface.

Hi Steven,

Any success satellite tracking with the iOptron? Is it leapfrog only?
