StellariumScope without EQDIR possible?

    I dont yet have an EQDIR interface but connect my NEQ6 Pro Synscan via the
    provided rs232 cable that ends in the hand control.
    Can I still use StellariumScope with that setup at the same time as
    For a novice like me it feels natural that since Stellarium controls the mount
    fine with that setup that also StellariumScope would....

    If you have the latest version of synscan (ver 3.27). The PC direct option in
    the utilities menu performs the same function as EQDIR so you should be able
    to use this option for any task that calls for EQDIR. You may need to upgrade
    the Synscan firmware if you do not have ver 3.27

    In any case this is a question that should be addressed to the EQMOD forum as
    StellariumScope is not part of the Stellarium project.

    "StellariumScope is not part of the Stellarium project"

    Why? Surley you can add sync and slew into Stellarium to work via ASCOM

    I have tried many different configurations but absolutly none of them have worked in getting a connection to my EQ6 mount via ASCOM using an EQDirect module.

    There is no detail in the Stellarium site or Wiki on how to connect to an ASCOM mountso please could you provide details on the procedure.

    Thank you
