Can I use the real hand control at the same time as NexRemote?
February 20, 2005
NexRemote is a complete software version of the Computerized Hand Control. Using the real hand control at the same time as NexRemote is exactly like using two controllers at the same time, and there are some restrictions about what can be done. If you are unsure about using the real hand control with NexRemote, then we suggest that you only use NexRemote for all operations. Here is a table that shows what is possible:
| Hand Control |
| PC Port |
|Align with real hand control||No||No|
|Hibernate with real hand control||No||No|
|Use direction buttons to center initial alignment stars||Yes||Yes|
|Use direction buttons after Alt/Az alignment||No||No|
|Use direction buttons after EQ North or South alignment||Yes||Yes|
Warning: Although it is possible to use the real hand control in tandem with NexRemote as describe in the table. We do not recommend or support having the real hand control connected when NexRemote is used via the PC Port.
