Is there a SkyX demo version I can download - so I can evaluate the software?

Software Bisque does not offer a demonstration version of TheSkyX Pro (downloading the 1.5 GB installer is simply cost prohibitive).  We will refund your money if you are not satisfied.

If you have any specific questions about TheSkyX Pro's feature set, I'd be happy to help answer them!

Where can I find a FAQ or description of telescope control using SkyX?

I've been using SGP  it's ok, but it simply integrates external software and due to this - there is a lot of  (dozing off/ hang ups?) as it's waiting for an external program to reply.  It was cute - but when it hangs its seriously frustrating.

I downloaded and have a 80 day trial of PRISM.  The all in one form factor and featurs are jaw dropping. The sky chart is a bit  'odd' and the program though impressived (I planned on paying 450 for it).  It tends to lack polish.  (eye candy, frills?). 

A friend suggested I consider SkyX pro.  I run a remote obsy in my yard (300 ft away). TOTALLY remote.  I'd like a all in on solution.  Prism's "graphic display of the dome rotating and position of it and the shutter/scope is very cool.  Does SkyX or the add on for domes have this?

I read you have no demo, but will refund. I have about 75 days left to try Prism. If I put SkyX pro and compare for the next 75 days I can get a full refund at that time? We're talking over 2 months. 

If so I will buy - try and install to compare.

I'm not familiar with Prism's presentation of a dome, but below is a sample of how the dome slit is currently represented in TheSkyX Professional Edition with the Dome Add On. Note that the Dome Add On, Camera Add On and TPoint Add On may be freely trialed for 90 days with the purchase of TheSkyX Professional Edition.

See our knowledge base article Is a Trial Version of TheSkyX Software Available?
