  1. If I wanted to control the mount through some code (Python or MATLAB or something) do I still need all of these drivers to get the connection to work? I have the serial port SynScan Communication Protocol document. I’ve been trying to days to get the connection to work. The COM port shows up in my device manager, but I can’t seem to get a response from the mount

    1. I’m not sure. You’d have to check the SDKs to see how they would work with the various other pieces of software. ASCOM is a standard interface though, so there might be far more advantages coding to ASCOM standards rather than specifics of programs.
