Hi Max

The Sky will work with the mount, as Colin said you need to select ASCOM from the mount set up option. EQMOD is needed as well if you go down this road or alternatively you can run the mount wirelessly if you have the sky watcher wifi dongle. This is now compatible with ASCOM and can be used to pulse guide as well. I have been using this approach for nearly a year with the Sky X and EQ8 and had better connectivity then I was getting with EQMOD.
