 +===EQMOD Mosaic===
 +EQMOD Mosaic is an ASCOM Client Application that integrates with EQMOD.
 +
 +**Note: **//**You do not need to install EQMOD Mosaic in order to use EQMOD.**//
 +
 +EQMOD Mosaic is used to facilitate creating mosaics of large objects. ​ The program creates a grid of RA and DEC coordinate points so that the mount can be moved in a systematic manner as the mosaic images are accumulated.
 +
 +
 +
 +The latest versions can be found in the files folder at
 +
 +[[http://​tech.groups.yahoo.com/​group/​EQMOD/​files/​A%20EQMOD%20Release/​EQMosaic/​|http://​tech.groups.yahoo.com/​group/​EQMOD/​files/​A%20EQMOD%20Release/​EQMosaic/​]]
 +
 +The file will have a name such as:
 +
 +<code vb>
 + EQMOD_MOSAIC_V112.exe
 +</​code>​
 +where the version number in the above example is 112.  The version you should download will probably have a later version number.
 +
 +
 +
 +**Assumptions:​**
 +
 +  -You have setup ASCOM
 +  -You have setup EQMOD (although EQMosaic can be used with other ASCOM drivers).
 +
 +
 +
 +==ASCOM Server Connection==
 +Connection must be made to an ASCOM telescope driver and this is achieved via the [Connect] Button. If no connection has previously been made then the ASCOM "​Chooser"​ dialog is shown, otherwise connection is established to the server currently set as the current default. The default server is set via the [Choose Scope] button on the extended window. EQMosaic can be set to automatically connect to the current '​default'​ ASCOM server on start up.  Typically you will choose "EQMOD ASCOM Scope Driver"​.
 +
 +
 +==Download EQMOD Mosaic==
 +  -Download the latest version into an appropriate folder from: [[http://​tech.groups.yahoo.com/​group/​EQMOD/​files/​A%20EQMOD%20Release/​EQMosaic/​|http://​tech.groups.yahoo.com/​group/​EQMOD/​files/​A%20EQMOD%20Release/​EQMosaic/​]]\\
 +  -Run the file. It will typically create a sub-folder with the project files. For non-developers the //.exe// file is the only file of interest.
