My New Tutorial: Setting up an Equatorial Mount on ASCOM

Read here: http://www.lightvortexastronomy.com/tutorial-setting-up-an-equatorial-mount-on-ascom-with-eqmod-stellarium-and-cartes-du-ciel.html

This tutorial is self-explanatory from the title. It guides readers who are having trouble setting up their equatorial mount on ASCOM and controlling it via EQMod, Stellarium and/or Cartes du Ciel. This essentially replaces the mount's hand controller entirely. The tutorial is also meant to push more people to make the move. The final section is a further discussion as to what else can be done once you have computer-control of the mount, including plate solving, working with mosaics for deep space astrophotography and experimenting with the ASCOM Simulator for testing out software and planning imaging sessions during the day or a cloudy night. Enjoy!
