    I have Stellarium 0.12.1 installed on HP running Windows 7. Can't get to connect to or run
    scope. I have the following configuration: Stellarium directly, LX200GPS, J2000 (default), com3, Meade astrostar compatible,local host, 10001 TCP port. The configuration is in the window and says stopped, when I click start nothing happens.
    When I click "slew telescope to" message "no active device" appears.

    Any help will be appreciated.

      if you are using a USB to RS232 adapter make sure thst you have installed the PL2303 Driver.

    I suspect you are using a USB/RS232 adapter. How is it configured. I have also found that some of the adapters don't work with Win 7.

    Don't forget that the LX200 needs to be aligned before it can be remotely controlled.
