Stellarium controlled supertrack mount

Recommended Posts

Hi all , i've been thinking about connecting my supertrack mount to a netbook and using Stellarium to control it . I was wondering if stellarium will take care of the tracking and also if manual adjustment was needed can this be done in stellarium ( as my hanset will be unplugged ) thanks .

Hi Bigal1

I'm not 100% on the supatrack mount as I use a synscan but if you haven't already you may need to purchase either a USB/Serial or bluetooth interface unit in order to connect it to the pc.......see here towards the bottom of the page Ursa Minor planetarium program - SkyTour version . You can mod the mount yourself if your brave ;)supatrakmounthacking (rwgastro). With regards to stellarium it may work using the celestron drivers but I cant be sure it will definatly work.
