You have a Paramount Robotic Telescope Mount, and one or more of the following apply:

  • You're unsure how to register both its hardware and software serial numbers
  • You're having trouble activating TheSkyX Professional Edition software
  • You wish to change the activation serial number of TheSkyX Professional Edition software (see Tips, below)


Congratulations on selecting a Paramount Robotic Telescope Mount!

Each mount is supplied with two serial numbers: one for the mount itself, and another for the included Paramount Software Suite. These are indicated on a serial number card, much like the sample one illustrated below:

Please note that a mount serial number cannot be used to activate software. If TheSkyX does not accept the serial number you're entering, confirm that you are using the software serial number, as indicated in yellow, above.

The Paramount Software Suite serial number can activate TheSkyX Professional Edition for any supported OS (Windows, Mac, Linux and Raspbian), as well as the TPoint Add On, Camera Add On and Multi-OS and Six License Add On. The serial number for a Paramount ME II Software Suite additionally activates the Dome Add On. (For further information on activating Add Ons, see How to Obtain, Activate and Update TheSkyX Add Ons.)

We highly recommend that both serial numbers be registered to your Software Bisque member account. Here are some of the benefits to registering:

  • Registering the software serial number provides a 12-month subscription to download-access to associated software installers, after which the subscription may optionally be renewed. (Note that a current subscription is not required to operate installed software, nor to use previously-obtained installers.)
  • Registering the mount serial number allows our staff to provide the most relevant technical support for your mount, should the need arise.

A printed copy of the Paramount Software Suite Quick Start Guide is included with every Paramount, and is a useful resource for these and other "out of the box" issues.


  • Already had TheSkyX before getting the mount? If you've installed and activated TheSkyX Professional Edition with a different serial number, see Changing TheSkyX's Serial Number.
