Dear Sir,

I recently purchased the above programme. I am trying to connect my telescope with no success.

I have a Skywatcher NEQ6 Pro mount. When it asks for the mount, there is no Skywatcher mount in the list? Can you please advise how to get connection?

For some reason the Sky-Watcher mounts were listed under the Orion Telescopes & Binoculars group. They were recently given their own proper group in TheSkyX Professional Edition, but apparently this hasn't yet impacted the Serious Astronomer Edition.

In any case, what matters is that any selection be made that uses the driver for "Celestron NexStar-compatible mount or telescope". If you'd like, you could place the attached, newer mountlist.txt file into the Resources\Common\Miscellaneous Files sub-folder of TheSkyX's installation folder. That should give you the Sky-Watcher group.

Let me know if you have any more questions about this.

Either sign on to the computer as an Administrator, or change the read/write permissions of this folder for the current account.
