Can Nina control the Celestron's Smart DewHeater 4x controller?

Celestron has an ascom driver for the controller.  With that, NINA should be able to control it but I haven't tried it.  I like the feel of the Celestron GUI so I don't run it directly with NINA.  I have NINA controlling CPWI and CPWI has the controller interface so I just do it that way.

That is how I set it up yesterday. Everything seemed to work perfectly. Much nicer setup without so many plug adapters.

Also tested a new ASI2600 mc duo. My C9.25 was a bit out of alignment but still produced a nice image.
