    Hi, my name is William Smith, I am on the board of Dark Skies here in Westcliffe, Colorado.
    Don (newyearskid) told me to contact you folks.
    I have a Celestron C14 with the computerized hand controller.
    I am trying to connect it to a computer to simplify the telescope for visitors to our observatory in Westcliffe.
    Don told me that you folks have one of the Hand controllers connected to a computer, will you share how you accomplished this?

    The current Celestron ASCOM driver (which I maintain) is claimed to be able to operate with the Ultima 2000 mounts, I don't know if that would work but it might be worth a try. If it works, even a little bit, then try to collect a log file.
