connecting CGX-L mount

#1

Post by 1jimalexander »

Got Java and ASCOM
I've downloaded CPWI, CFM, NexRemote.
Not having any luck with CPWI, NexRemote.
Is there a simple driver download for the CGX-L mount?

    What ever happened to the universal Celestron Driver? I used a driver called something like "Celestron Unified Driver" back when I owned a Celestron mount. Worked great with ASCOM.

    Have you tried Green Swamp Server? I know that they have their own ASCOM drivers for Synta mounts. I use it with my Skywatcher HEQ5 and it works very well.

      Do you mind if I delete your other post in this forum basically asking the same question? It's a bookkeeping thing.
