Astrotortilla and Stellarium

Question

Hi!

I'm thinking about downloading Astrotortilla for plate solving as I use Backyard EOS premium software to image.  I currently have a Celestron AVX mount that can be controlled by Stellarium.  The question that I have is,  can Astrotortilla platesolve when I use Stellaruim to locate my targets or is ASCOM software needed to integrate everything?

Thanks,  Jeff

Jeff,

I believe that you need the ASCOM Platform and the Celestron driver. Also Stellarium does not support ASCOM without the installation and use of StellariumScope.

Then, since the Celestron driver supports multiple concurrent connections, you can have Stellarium w/ StellariumScope and AstroTortilla connected to the AVX at the same time.
