SkyTools 3 ASCOM 6
#1
Recently, I installed the ASCOM 6 Platform plus the current Sky Commander driver for my Orion XX12g.
I have noticed SkyTools runs a little sluggish and freezes from time to time once connect to the telescope.

I still have to do more research since I also switch to the WiFi solution from Orion, almost at the same time. I know, never good to implement many changes at once.

But my question: are there any reported issues with SkyTools 3 and ASCOM 6 or should I stick to ASCOM 5?
And one more, What is the best/better Virtual ComPort software? I'm using the HW Group VCP which seems to drop the connections once in a while and recovers.

Thanks.

Hello,

For what it's worth I have not had any reports of problems with SkyTools that were directly related to ASCOM 6.

And it's probably not in my case. Suspecting the virtual comport.

Thanks.
