Using a Planetarium program to control mount
Using a Planetarium program to control mount

Once the planetarium program is connected to EQMOD (and the mount is unparked) you can select an object in the planetarium program and slew the mount to that object. The exact method varies from program to program. Possibilities:

  • Right click the object and select GOTO or “slew to” in the popup menu

or

  • Double left click the object.

or

  • Press < Ctrl 1> (in Stellarium)

There may be other possibilities depending upon the program. The mount will only slew correctly to the object if it has been carefully aligned (preferably with 3 or more stars).
