software issues

6:53 PM. Helped Kiron with Stellarium, a number of issues, and finding a comet. The Stellarium plug-in is not real clear.

7:05 PM. I looked into using Stellarium to control the Paramount. I forgot that I had done some research before. It is supported, but for Linux only...

Then I reviewed what would be required to do so with SkyTools. Learned ST3 supports ASCOM so I downloaded the main ASCOM core components. But it seems that I still would need to use TheSky6 as a "driver." And that suggests I'd be running the software on the same computer... I shelved it.
