Bug Description

Hi,

I would like to control differen Telescopes with Stellarium, as it is my favourite Sky-Software.
Many Drivers are available within the ASCOM project, i am sure, you know ASCOM.

So, is Stellarium TelescopeControl PlugIn would have a option for ASCOM-Driver in the telescope-Driver list - it would be possible to use it with every scope, where an Ascom driver exists.

Maybe advanced users have already written their own ascom-driver for use with different software - they would can use this driver then also with stellarium.

I saw this in the astrosurf c2a software - and it works great - but i would prefer to use Stellarium.. :-)

thanks,
Michael

Why not, at present, the Ascom Platform for many telescope, Dome, focuser, filter etc, it's possible to use?
Thankyou. Claudio.

I do use Stellariumscope in meanwhile, and works.
But would be more convenience (and faster maybe) if ASCOM drivers would supported directly.
