    My Planewave CDK telescope includes a USB-controlled shutter that protects the telescope. Does Maxim have the ability to control that?

    Thanks in advance,

    Not directly, no. I suppose someone could write a driver that made it look like a "dome".

    You might beable to write a little script (outside of MaxIm) to send a command to the PWI controller to open the shutter.
