Hello, friends. My question is very simple and perhaps already talked: What is the best planetary software to work with a G11 + Gemini 1?

What do you mean by, "planetary software"?. Do you mean "planetarium software"?. If that's what you meant, then I suggest using Stellarium, with the StellariumScope.to make the connection between the Gemini ASCOM drivers and Stellarium.. With this setup, you can point and sync the mount in Stellarium, which is very convenient.

I use SkySafari Pro from my iPhone or iPad (works with Android, too). It does require the SkyFi adapter.If you want to go without such an adapter then you'll have to use way more expensive apps like Starry Night Pro, TheSkyX Pro, MaximDL Pro, Sequence Generator Pro, etc.And then it all depends on what your operating system is.Stellarium is nice, but not nearly as nice as SkySafari.

Actually the WiFi adapter is not required, as a program called "WiFiScope for SkySafari" available

at www.mainsequencesoftware.com/Products/WiFiScope for freecan be used to connect

SkySafari Pro to ASCOM, if using a Windows machine connected to themount.. This software

is free.. Sorry Mac user are not supported.

Other question about this topic. Is it indispensable aligning with one/two/three or more stars��before connecting planetary software to the mount or is there any program who enable the direct connection without perform this step?

You can connect to planetarium software at any time after starting Gemini. If you don't build a pointing model using a few stars, then both, Gemini and your planetarium software will have an incorrect idea for where the telescope is pointing in the sky.��

Then, it.s required build a model with hand-controller. This model, it can.t build with any planetarium software?

I use sequence generator pro for goto, plate solve, and syncing. I don't use the hand controller or gemini built-in model anymore

it's excellent btw
