Bisque Software for Astronomy SkyX

  1. Mar 10, 2015 #1
    I'm taking a shot that this forum might know about the software in the title, SkyX. My question is about a feature called Profile. I need some help using it.

    Bisque is a very high end telescope mount manufacturer. I assume their software is equally high end. It's probably unsuited for other than bisque hardware.

    Yes, I have have their Paramount ME mount, German equatorial.. They provide The Sky X software for a hefty price, which allows one to control the ME. TSX has a feature called Profile, which save data about items like a camera and focuser. The documentation on Profile how to use it, but it's pretty feeble. So if anyone here uses SkyX, I would be interested in their experience with it. Maybe there's a better forum for my question?

    Good idea. I joined them. They have a lot of topics that involve the Bisque. I posted in a proper forum.
