Just purchased my new scope (due Tuesday all being well) and a webcam (NexImage - yes I paid all that money !) - I'm looking for suggestions of freeware apps that can be used for imaging, and for control of the telescope (C6 - SGT). Anyone have a few links ?

Hi Malcolm Stellarium is a good start, its a planetarium program with telescope control. Another is cartes du ciel start [skychart] but I have no experience with this so i`m not sure of telescope control.

For the neximage I use Sharpcap for video capture https://sites.google.com/site/rwgastro/sharpcap and Registax for stacking images RegiStax- Free image processing software .
