Celestron focus motor not found

Question

BYN Premium version 2.1.2

I have an old Celestron Nexstar 11 GPS with a new Celestron focus motor. BYN sees the scope and controls it, but cannot see the focuser. The Celestron Focuser Utility is able to connect to the focuser. Because of the age of the scope, I have to connect the scope and the focuser to the computer separately, on two different USB ports - I can't connect the focuser to the scope and the scope to the computer and operate the focuser. The telescope is COM4, the focuser COM5. Celestron only has a single unified ASCOM telescope driver, which is supposed to control both the scope and the focuser, but I suspect the problem is it can't deal with the focuser being on a different port.

Any ideas?

You need to talk to the driver author, or read the manual. It may be that in order to talk to the focuser through the telescope that the devices need to be cabled differently, but that is probably discussed in the driver's user manual.
