 +==Basic Operation of EQMOD Mosaic==
 +  -Double click the file //​EQMOD_MOSAIC.exe//​ . Depending upon your computer setup the //.exe// extension may not be visible.
 +  -Start your planetarium program (optional) and connect to EQMOD in the "ASCOM Telescope Chooser"​ dialog. EQMOD will start up.
 +  -In the EQMOD Mosaic window, click the [Connect] button. EQMOD Mosaic will then connect to an ASCOM driver. If none has previously been selected then the "ASCOM Telescope Chooser"​ dialog will appear. On successful connection the center cell of the mosaic grid is automatically synchronized with the scopes position and will appear highlighted.
 +  -Use your planetarium program or the EQMOD slew controls (joystick etc.) in EQMOD to move to the object of interest.
 +  -Double click a new grid position (or [Spiral] button) to slew the mount a precise amount for each subsequent image. When the scope finishes slewing the target grid cell will be highlighted and the grid cell label will be displayed (if option enabled).
 +  -If at any point you wish to resynchronize the grid center with the current scope position, click the [Get Position] button. The grid will be reset and position F6 (row F, column 6) and will appear highlighted.
