I have read that you have better luck connecting the AVX mount to 3rd party software using the CPWI as a broker. The problem is, there is no CPWI ASCOM driver set available for download ANYWHERE. I’ve searched all over. I have also attempted to use CPWI within APT to connect to the mount & it gives an error code that I do not have the CPWI drivers loaded. Because I cannot find them. Ascom doesn’t show them on their website.
I have no issue connecting the mount to the celestron CPWI software. I also connect to the mount via Stellarium no problem.
What I am attempting to do is this:
-begin with CPWI and select “quick align” so that I can then...
-move over to astrophotography tool and have it plate solve for me so I can then bypass the manual celestron alignment & then begin imaging using APT.
Essentially I want to bypass the celestron software as much as possible, entirely if possible & use plate solving to star align. I need to be able to have APT control the mount though first & I am quite frustrated.
A couple of other notes:
-this is a new AVX mount & the firmware is up to date.
