I have version V of the program (currently newest on SourceForge) but I understand there is a newer version that has this mount in it. Anyone know where to get it?

It had the HEQ5 but you have to use the following parameters for the AZ-EQ: select 5184000 for the steps per 360deg
select 38400 for the steps per worm rev
select 0 as the tracking rate tweak

 

But I found the solution, went to SkyWatcher and they has an ascom driver, downloaded it and don't have to set the parameters.

 

Here is the link to the driver: http://skywatcher.co...e/ascom-driver/

I should have mentioned you have to go through the HC with the SkyWatcher driver where the SourceForge on works for EQ through the built-in USB port on the mount.
