ASCOM Control!

OK! As of this afternoon I can connect to my mount over a USB cable instead of its wifi which allows me to stay connected to the internet. To do this I’m using the Ascom platform and the POTH hub which is part of it. I can’t use explorestars to command the scope over USB but I can use stellarium which I’m familiar with. Also, I can now have Astrotortilla(not making that up) take a picture through my camera using Backyardeos and check of the mount’s position and send commands to correct it! This will be great if it’s solid. hard to tell on a quiet afternoon in my living room.
