I have 2 issues that I would appreciate your help with. I have an HEQ-5 pro mount and I just started using APT. I downloaded the ASCOM drivers from the skywatcher website and the ASCOM 6 platform. I am connecting the mount to the laptop through the Synscan hand controller using a USB to the printer-like port on the hand controller. When I connect on APT, it says "connected to sky watcher driver, unrecognized model #56". I can still control the mount through APT and the tracking seems to be working, but I was wondering if this is something that I should worry about.
Another problem is that if I try to connect through EQMOD, the EQMOD interface flashes up for a second then disappears. Someone else mentioned the same problem but I could not find the fix. I tried re-installing EQMOD twice but with the same result.
I would really appreciate your help.
