HEQ5pro want load into sharpcap

Post by John Whitehead » Fri May 31, 2019 2:08 am

Hi, can someone please tell me how to get Sharpcap to work with my Skywatcher HEQ5-pro mount?
I'm using a ASI294MC pro camera, a EFW filter wheel plugged into the USB port on the camera. This is all working fine.
The mount I have tried about all I can think of. The Skywatcher ASCOM driver, with the mount plugged into the hand controller switched to PC direct mode as well as in the normal mode. Tried with a three star align first, and without.
Using ASCOM EQMOD it almost works, as it puts the mount control buttons up but nothing further.

What a fantastic platform SharpCap is!
John Whitehead.
