(Scope currently centered on Uranus at cross hair, telescope in different room/different floor of house)


Note: On MAC I have not been able to get Cartes Du Ciel to recognize a Bluetooth serial port,

 CdC connects but then pops up ‘Not a typewriter’ (and Mac shows stays connected)

Please verify your favorite MAC program can use Bluetooth serial ports
