 +
 +==Introduction==
 +//EQTour// is an ASCOM Client Application that integrates with EQMOD.
 +
 +**Note: **//**You do not need to install EQTour in order to use EQMOD.**//
 +
 +
 +
 +//EQTour// is a lightweight,​ small footprint application that provides users with the capability to create their own Sky Tours of objects. This may prove be useful as a "​bookmarking"​ facility during or spanning observing session when objects need to be regularly revisited. By using //EQTour// in combination with Planetarium software and the EQMOD simulator, it is easy to build up lists of sky locations for later observation/​demonstration sessions.
 +
 +
 +
 +The latest versions can be found in the files folder at
 +
 +[[http://​tech.groups.yahoo.com/​group/​EQMOD/​files/​A%20EQMOD%20Release/​EQTour/​|http://​tech.groups.yahoo.com/​group/​EQMOD/​files/​A%20EQMOD%20Release/​EQTour/​]]
 +
 +
 +
 +The file will have a name such as:
 +
 + EQTOUR_V111_Setup.exe
 +
 +where the version number in the above example is 1.11.  The version you download may have a later version number.
 +
 +
 +
 +**Assumptions:​**
 +
 +  -You have setup ASCOM
 +  -You have setup EQMOD (although EQTour can be used with other ASCOM drivers).
 +
 +
 +
 +==Downloading EQTour==
 +  -Download the latest version into an appropriate folder.
 +  -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. You may receive warnings about an unknown publisher.
 +
 +==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. //EQTour// can be set to automatically connect to the current '​default'​ ASCOM server on start up.  Typically you will choose "EQMOD ASCOM Scope Driver"​.
