 Beta-testing is going slow.  It is working well with my iOptron CEM60 and I've got good feedback for Meade LX200 and LX200GPS scopes.  But little to no feedback for other mounts.

Anything new with CEM60 or is it still using leap frog mode tracking? Would be nice to get variable rate tracking!

Looks like I'm a day late and a loonie short...maybe the Canadian winter weather is interfering? wink.gif  Hoping the project is still alive and beta testable on a Celestron mount and scope, as the website looks to be down. <Fingers crossed.>

Looks good now! Watched your video walk through, very nice. 

 

I have a Celestron CGX mount I can try the software on, good weather down in Tucson AZ

I may be wrong but I believe mount has to support variable rate tracking (which CEM60 does not).

The CEM60 does it the less elegant way of bumping every few seconds, still doable.

The new website is https://heavenscape.com (Sorry, I am unable to edit the first post).   It now supports any ASCOM compatible mount.
