Ascom. I'm confused.

Recommended Posts

My Asus Laptop was updated to  Windows version 10, and subsequently to version 11.
Unfortunately it resulted in me losing most of my Astro files. Ascom is now Ascom Alpaca, and part of Github.
I have been trying to  get my Skywatcher EQ6 Q Pro mount driver downloaded,  but I can't find it listed.
Is the old Ascom platform now extinct ?  
I there is something about Ghost Drivers, but I need to be advised on how to get what I need to get computer control
of my telescope again. 
Hope someone can point me in the right direction.

Ascom can be downloaded from the link Chris has provided.  

How are you connecting the EQ6 to the computer.  If it's using a USB cable then the driver you require for the com port is a Prolific drive which you can find here.  If you are using an FTDI based EQDIR cable then windows should have installed the driver (or left it unchanged) as part of the update.
