Hi

Have been trying to setup the Planetarium on NINA specifically TheSkyX. Using the option tab, I have selected TheSkyX as my Planetarium of choice. However, when I try to use it to get coordinates in framing, I get this message “unable to acquire coordinates from TheSkyX”. TheSkyX program is open. I noted that on the options tab TheSkyX selection is followed by Host: Localhost Port:8090 this was filled in by NINA. Is this the correct port, if not, how do I determine the correct one? Is there further setting in NINA I need to complete or is there a setting or settings in TheSkyX I need to change? I have looked at the documentation but have not been unable to figure it out. Any guidance would be most apricated.
Currently running NINA 1.9 under Windows 10
Best Regards
Bill

I don't use NINA, but traditionally, the port for SkyX's TCP server is 3040. It can be configured, though.

 

You can find out on your system by calling up "Tools -> TCP Server" in SkyX Pro to see what it has to say:

While you're at it, make sure that the "listening" check box is ticked.
