bert e  will this software remote control the CPC celestron series scopes?
RICK C  The program is very comprehensive. Since I have only had it for a few weeks, I'm not sure, but I would not be surprised if it did. Also I don't plan on remote controlling the scope so I have not tried that section of the program. I'm using an Orion Atlas EQ mount. Thanks Rick
