I am new to the Bisque world and am in the process of installing the SkyX Suite for the Paramount MEII to my observatory computer.  Before I begin the installation, I know that I will have to register my software and mount serial numbers in order to be granted access for full installation.  My question is - will I need to have the computer connected to the internet in order to have the installation completed.  My problem is that the observatory is not connected to the internet and I would have to transfer the computer to a location that does.  Also, the computer is solely dedicated to the mount and cameras and I didn't want to risk any virus or malware attaching itself to the computer via the internet.

Congratulations on acquiring a Paramount ME II Robotic Telescope System!

That's correct. If you've any questions, see our knowledge base article on Paramount Serial Numbers and Software Activation.

No Internet connection required. You can install the software entirely from the Paramount ME II Software Suite USB flash drive. Depending upon what other equipment you plan to use (cameras, focusers, etc.), you might need to obtain a related driver or plug-in from the Internet. There are some optional capabilities of TheSkyX that require an Internet connection (e.g. determining your site location from IP address, checking for updates, downloading orbital data for satellites and small solar system bodies, obtaining images from the Digital Sky Survey via Web*), but all but the first and last of these can be done from another location and the associated file(s) transferred to your observatory computer by an alternative medium.

*Alternatively, the complete Digital Sky Survey imagery can be stored locally. It is included in our Database Add On, for instance.
