    Thanks... helpful. Is there a similar way to get TSX to use the SC-3, when the SC-3 is connected to an AO-X instead of to the camera?

    Software Bisque has been very slow to support our newer hardware and DL Imaging API.
    As of this writing, they have not implemented it.
    You can use the SC3 as an ASCOM guider.
    I believe the setup would be something like this:

    I don't want you to misunderstand. TSX hasn't been updated to support the DL Imaging drivers via their proprietary X2 stuff. So this means that while you should be able to use the StarChaser as a guider, it won't be able to run the AO.

    Yep... that'll work fine. I just need to collect tracking data for PEC.
