Re: SharpCap Pro not connecting with AZ-EQ 5 skywatcher mount

Thanks Robin, Your solution for running in administrator mode was correct. I subsequently ran both software apps in admin mode. Success, success after several months of frustration, hair pulling and cursing. Both programmes ran the mount run during the day on a dry run. It was such a simple solution...

Re: SharpCap Pro not connecting with AZ-EQ 5 skywatcher mount

I have replaced my profilic USB to Serial cable with a FTDI cable hoping that it would solve the problem of sharpcap not connecting to the ascom driver when using the CdC planetarium. It pinned a screen shot of the result, a "Connect Error - No port". I double checked the ports for both device manag...

SharpCap Pro not connecting with AZ-EQ 5 skywatcher mount

When I load up Sharpcap 3.2.5986 Pro (SC) together with Stellarium Scope (SS) and Stellarium planetarium (SP), SC does not recognise the Skywatcher (SW) mount and even if SS and SP are running or not. I use ZWO cameras (ASI 120, 290, 294) all run well in SC. Noting that SS and SP are able to control...

Re: Mount not found at com 2

Dave I have managed to correct the com port for the mount to use com 2 through the device manager. The manager is showing >Ports (COM & LPT)>Prolific USB-to-Serial Comm Port (COM 2)etc and properties "this device is working properly". I'm using a USB to Skywatcher USB connection port on the SW mount...

Hence attempted other selected mounts, on camera ST4, SynScan Mobile, EQMOD ASCOM HE-Q5/6 etc. The tool window for HE-EQ5/6 did appear in the control panel right hand side but o...

Re: Hardware asks for a mount selection for plate solving

Thanks Robin, I can use Stellarium on my PC laptop (USB cable) or SkySafari on my Ipad (connected wirelessly). I'll give it a run.
