Open PECTool - manipulate peroidic error data for Celestron mounts.
This is clone of the Celestron PECTool used to upload, download and manipulate PEC data. It is intended to work with Celestron Nexstar mounts like NexStar GPS, NexStar GPS-SA, NexStar iSeries, NexStar SE Series, NexStar GT, Advanced-VX, Advanced-GT and CGE mounts. Communication to the hand control is 9600 bits/sec, no parity and one stop bit via the RS-232 port on the base of the hand control. To build it libnexstar version 0.11 or newer is needed, which can be found here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/libnexstar/ Mac OSX binary is available here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/openpectool/files/prebuilt/openpectool-0.0.1.dmg/download
C API to control NexStar compatible telescopes
This library implements the serial commands supported by the Celestron NexStar hand control (HC) and SkyWatcher/Orion SynScan HC. This applies to the Celestron: NexStar GPS, NexStar GPS-SA, NexStar iSeries, NexStar SE Series, NexStar GT, CPC, SLT, Advanced-VX, Advanced-GT, CGE, CGEM etc. SkyWatcher: EQ5, HEQ5, EQ6 (Pro), AZ-EQ5 GT, AZ-EQ6 GT, EQ8 etc. and the corresponding Orion mounts. Communication to the hand control is 9600 bits/sec, no parity and one stop bit via the RS-232 port on the base of the hand control. Communication can be established over TCP/IP if nexbridge is running on the computer connected to the telescope. To control network based telescopes nexbridge must be used on the remote site. https://sourceforge.net/projects/nexbridge/
