How to open FCUSB

Post by mhamburg » Fri Dec 24, 2021 4:42 pm

I just downloaded the combined FCUSB and ASCOM 6.0 software but (and excuse if this a dumb question) how do you open the program? I can't seem to get a shortcut icon onto the desktop.

You will need to use an application that supports ASCOM in addition to the ASCOM platform and the FCUSB ASCOM driver. It's been a while since I have surveyed what's out there. If you just want to test the FCUSB with your focuser, you can download and install FocusPal from our website:
