But, being away from the scope limits what I can do or show you. But its database is quite limited and it is missing many features that anyone used to TheSky will sorely miss. But 24V is required for their “high speed” slewing support. Like any goto system the mount can be resyncrhonized as you go on. For more information on this subject, please contact AEC. Celestron Telescope Driver ProgId programmers only: The tab labeled Telescope looks just like it does with any other scope.

Where this is most noticable is for mount flips when the scope crosses the meridian. It is possible to use a USB to serial adapter to allow newer laptops to communicate with the Temma mounts.

Temma by Takahashi ASCOM Driver

On our request, John has kindly provided us with the following technical information, which shows how to get the best out of these professional-standard mounts by acsom the correct type of software.

Once I did that, it stayed on throughout.

I measured goto accuracy using my EM with a just good polar scope alignment no drift alignment and a Vixen GA4 illuminated guiding reticle. The reliance of the Temma PC system on these two programs was it’s single largest shortcoming. Release Notes and Instructions: Previously you had to purchase Software Bisque’s Orchestrate to get this functionality.


The Temma PC system relies on the polar alignment of the mount for goto accuracy. I really can’t argue the pro and cons of ascm motor vs servo motor mount designs, but suffice to say that the precise guiding that Tak mounts are famous for remains intact.

Thanks for taking the time to post here for others. I drive my mount off a 24V “wall wart” style AC adapter in the backyard and in the field off two 12V gel cells wired in series.

Astro-Physics sells and EM adapter. This is a full-featured driver that provides asccom only Trmma standard driver functions, but also user access to many of the Temma’s special features. The worm period is approximately 10 minutes. To know if you’re in standby mode, you have to click a “Refresh” button which redraws the screen and indicates if the RA axis is in standby mode or not. There are two tabs for Telescope Control.

Use this driver with mounts that purport to use the LX protocol. It also recognises the StarSense HC. These mount are still the most reliable, sturdily constructed, and long-lasting mounts on the market!

Hi, Thank you for your answer. Most typically the mount must be polar aligned it is generally agreed that Tak polar scopes work very wellthe goto system is then synchronized with one star and that’s it. This sound can best be described as something like a jet airplane noise but at far lower decibel levels.

There is a small fee after a free trial period. The driver has also passed the Conformance Checker tests see this report. Many astronomy programs now support an independent system of interoperable telescope drivers called ASCOM. It’s a simple program capable of controlling the mount.

Simple applications such as planetarium slewing are more likely to work than demanding automation applications. To use go to your Telescope dialog and click, Connect, you should now be able to adcom your mount using that program. Contact us for a forum account if you wish to have pre-sales information.
