Hi,

 

I am unable to connect Autoslew, CCDCommander and The Sky V6

Whatever I choose in the TELEAPI of the SKy it tells me Failed to create or open th plug-in's registry area.

Depening on the choosen connection it tries to open a 2nd occassion of Autoslew, which of course is also not working.

The is no problem via POTH to connect CCDC and Autoslew, but to add The Sky to the suit does not work (even via POTH).

It is also the same whether I start The Sky as admin or not.

 

Any idea?

 

Thanks for your help.

 

Regards,

 

Josch

Hi Josch,

 

Did you choose Astrooptic Server Telescope?

Maybe you can upgrade to The Sky X. No problems there with W10 and Autoslew.

Hi Waldemar, I tried astrooptik server, Generic hub and POTH.

Either I get a long error message or the one I posted before.

None of them worked.

 

I am using The Sky only for some positions of stars I get automatically iva CCDC or for comets which I obsreve for an astrobuddy.

Otherwise only for SYNCING.

Before going to Sky X I would try Prism.

 

Thank you for your help.

Regards,

Hi Josch,

 

when I set up a new astro computer under win10, I also had some problems to get the sky 6 set up correctly. Here's what's working for me:

 

In The Sky 6 in the telescope setup window I have chosen "Telescope API" in the drop down list.

Under "settings" I have configured "POTH Hub". Clicking "Properties" brings up the POTH hub setup window.

There clicking on "Choose Scope" brings up the ASCOM Telescope Chooser window, where I have chosen "Astrooptik Server Telescope".

 

Hope this helps,

 

Robert

Josch,

 

You will have to start TheSky with administrator rights, even if you are the only user. If you don't, ascom will not work.
