Running two setups at once?

Hi all, what is the best way of driving two separate scopes on separate mounts? Can I use one computer to do it or am I just opening up a can of worms? Should I just keep everything separate and run a pc for each setup.

It should be possible to run it all from one computer. A lot will depend on enough connections from the PC and the software you use.

I did a G11 and a Polarie at the same time. I used APT with the CCD, and BYEOS with the 6D on the Polarie. I have a 7 port USB hub and everything connected to that ok. Of course my setup in this case is much simpler since I didn't need to guide/control the Polarie.
