  • Did install it yesterday. and I LOVE IT, after 5 minutes working with the PHOTO ASCOM DRIVER, compared with 2 hours with the LFEP HAND-CONTROLLER ! Keep on with the good work and development.. Martin PS! Is there any difference ( beside version ) between LittleFoot Elegance Photo ASCOM Driver v1.5.2 and 1.5.3 ? since with V1.5.3 i miss the GUIDE TAB.. in Version 1.5.2 the GUIDE TAB is available..
