I've had a look through old posts and cannot find a definitive

answer, so I'll ask:



Can I use Starry Night Pro with the 900GTO mount albeit without full

functionality (I'm just looking to use the planetrium software to

track where the telescope is pointing)??



Appreciate any advice.

Thank you

Yes it does. You have to run the Ascom driver to make it work. One bug in the

program is their horizon limit. Do not use the horizon limit (turn it off).

Other than that, it works great, and can be used to control the telescope

also.

Thanks for that Roland.



I tried connecting the two together today and when I tried to connect

to the mount I got an error message



ASTRO PHYSICS - type mismatch



Any ideas??



Thank you in advance
