First and foremost, this program far exceeds what I ever expected to find. Every time I would think that I'd just about covered it all, I'd find a new feature. (The manual is, after all, about 100 pages long.) Thanks for such an awesome open source program!

In March of 2003, someone inquired about the compatibility of Celestron NexStar scopes interfacing with the program. The answer was that compatibility was expected in the next release (3.6.x) ...

I didn't really see any mention of Celestron scopes, which, as far as I know don't use a standard way, but a proprietary way of controlling their scope. -- I could be dead wrong about this. Is this scope supported now?

-- I did look on Celestron's site. Didn't see any information about how to control their scope other than buy their software -- which was what I had expected.

-- Again, thanks -- for the great software, and for an eventual answer!

-- J.
